“People say why against Pacquiao,” opened Marquez, and continued by saying, “I want to prove who’s better, and I want the referee to raise my hand. I’m training very hard for December 8. I’ll be ready to fight.”
“I’ll be ready to win again. I didn’t like the judges’ decision, because everybody knows what happened in the last 3 fights,” Marquez continued.
Nevertheless, despite of all the confidence, Marquez admitted that Pacquiao will not be a cake walk for him.
“Each fight is a challenge, but this is a tough challenge for me. Manny Pacquiao knows me and I know him,” said Marquez.
