Manuel Marquez (50-4-1, 37 KO’s) is ready to give a major upset on 19 of sep in his mega fight with undefeated pound-for boxing star Mayweather Jr. (39-0, 25 KO’s) at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas. Marquez has put weight, gotten much stronger and is hitting harder than ever. Marquez has no secret about but he plans to do against the 32-year Mayweather, intend on attacking him.Mayweather struggled for sometime when facing Luis Castillo, a huge body puncher. Although Castillo lost both of the fights, many of the boxing fans feel that Mayweather lost first fight in 2002 April.
Marquez has training in the mountains for his spell with Mayweather, running hills and lifting large rocks to build up his legs, arms and shoulders. Marquez sees Mayweather is weakness in body shots and intends on working in that area against him. Mayweather recently persistent an injury on his ribs while in training. He won’t say what is the cause of injury, but assumption is that one of his hard-hitting partners hurt him with a big body shot.
Mayweather come back with the goal of fighting Pacquiao. Instead of taking an easy tune-up for the fight, Mayweather decided on Marquez, he points out really beat Pacquiao in both of Marquez’s prior two fights with Manny. Mayweather is obviously older, less youthful he did two years ago and there’s a question whether he still has what it takes. For a boxer to take off much time from the sport, especially a fighter in the lighter weight classes, it’s often difficult, if not impossible, for them to successful comeback. Usually the fighters in the slighter weight are incapable to come back effectively once they retire for any length of time.
