I’m amazed at the absence of logical thinking by individuals who visit NowBoxing.com; as well as their inability to read and comprehend. One just recently wrote an article “Let’s Get This Straight, Manny Pacquiao Fears Marquez! by Chuy Marco” attacking me in which he resorted to name calling. OH, THE HORROR! OK, do you know what is the difference between a noun and a verb, Chuy Marco? Apparently you have no clue of the difference. A noun can refer to persons, places, states, or qualities. Are we clear so far, Marco? OK, just checking. A verb are words that typically express state, action, or condition, etc.
Where in my article did I state that, “Marquez is a chicken?” The key word is the word “is,” In that statement, the word chicken is being used as a noun. “Marquez chickens out,” in this sentence the word chicken is being used as a verb, it is an action, or the state of doing.
Marco also writes that, “Marquez has every right to a fight with Manny Pacquiao.” WHAT? And just where is the law or contract that gives Juan Manuel Marquez of that right? If you mean that Marquez has the right to ask, cry, beg, or want a fight with Pacquiao, then I would agree with you. But please, Marquez, or any other fighter, is not entitled to any kind of right regarding a fight with Pacquiao. Lets get something straight, Manny Pacquiao is the man, everyone wants to fight him, Marquez is just one measly ant desperately trying in vain to be the next recipient of Pacquiao’s good gracious. If you’re talking about rights, Pacquiao has the right to pick and choose anyone he wants. I know pro-Marquez fans can’t stand that fact. Sorry! Marquez had two chances to KO Pacquiao and be in place where Pacquiao is at now; sitting pretty on the throne of the Boxing World. Stop living in the past, we live in a world where Pacquiao dominates boxing. GET USED TO IT!
How about this statement by Marco. “Marquez flew all the way to the Philippines after their second fight with a contract in hand and confronted Manny Pacquiao to his face in a stadium filled with thousands of Filipinos and everyone laughed at Pacquiao . . .” AMAZING! Everyone laughed at Pacquiao? EVERYONE? REALLY? Are you sure the pro-Pacquiao crowd was not laughing at Marquez’s act of desperation?
How about this statement? “Also this clown writer said that Marquez isn’t a warrior??? Have you seen his last fights? He goes to war with Juan Diaz, Michael Katsidis, Joel Casamayor.” Juan Diaz? Going to war against the, washed up and done, Diaz? Is that what you call it? Since Nate Campbell beat Diaz up, he was never the same. He also loss to Paul Malignaggi twice. Diaz is 1 out of 6 since his loss to Campbell two years ago. Casamayor is so old that when he tries to smoke a Cuban cigar, he is the one that gets lit up. (I like that last comment, I came up with that one by myself.) And Katsidis too? WOW! What a triple-threat to gauge their warrior status.
Chuy writes, “So I guess calling out Floyd Mayweather Jr. and moving up to welterweight to fight the best pound for pound fighter in the world isn’t brave or “do or die” like you put it? So going to the Philippines with a contract for a rubber match with Manny Pacquiao right after their second fight isn’t “do or die,” fighting younger hungry pressure fighters like Michael Katsidis and Juan Diaz isn’t “do or die”?” Acts of stupidity does not qualify as a do or die, son!
What is the best way to get a person to GRANT you a favor that you desperately want?
1. try to get on his good side
2. try to embarrass him
3. try to humiliate him
What is the best way to test and find out if the hot spring water is too hot for you?
1. dip the tips of your finger into the water
2. just immediately jump in without testing
3. just take people’s word and jump in right away
Juan Manuel Marquez is mostly a cunning strategist, especially in the ring. But there are big lapses in his decision making where he exhibited acts of stupidity. Which answer do you think Marquez would pick on the the multiple choice questionnaire above?
The first is in regards to his act on going to the Philippines and confronting Manny to get a 3rd fight. Shane Mosley was smart enough to pick the right answer. He chose answer number 1. As for Marquez, he pick the wrong answer and was left in the dust to wither. For answering the question correctly, Mosley smiled all the way to the bank. CONGRATULATIONS, MOSLEY! Smart move. And for Marquez, well, what can I say? You had two chances, now, please step aside and go to the back of the line. And please, no cutting, crying, begging, or engaging in acts of desperation. Thank you for participating.
The second question could be related to his foray into a foreign element that Marquez has never been to, the Welterweight division.
Without testing the waters of the Welterweight division, Marquez stupidly jumped in. Is that a do or die attitude? NO, NO, NO, AND DOUBLE NO! That’s just plain stupidity. It is like jumping into the hot springs without testing the water first. Who would jump into an element which is totally foreign to the individual? Marquez has never fought at WW, he didn’t even have a fight below the WW division at Jr. WW. The temperature at Jr. WW would be closer to Marquez’s element. Marquez not only jump into the foreign WW division, he took on the physically bigger, faster, quicker, stronger, leaner, and younger Floyd Mayweather. With that, the foreign element became a pool of hot molten lava . There is no do in that decision, there is only die. You’re not coming out from the lava pool alive. The choice is clear, jump in, you die. There is no do.
And with that, Marco, that is stupidity to its utmost. It showed in the outcome of the fight, total annihilation and embarrassment. In other words, death by acts of stupidity!
“You also said Marquez will probably fight Erik Morales, which you describe as a safer choice, so tell me what is the difference between Manny Pacquiao fighting Shane Mosley and Marquez fighting Erik Morales?” “….and Erik Morales is coming off a winning streak…”
What is the difference? Morales was done and retired, Mosley is not on both. Morales was KO’d twice in a row and loss 4 in a row and retired because of that, Mosley was never KO’d and never retired. Mosley was a WORLD Champion at the chosen division where he will fight Pacquiao, Morales has no WORLD title at 140.
Mosley beat Antonio Margarito for the WORLD title at 147 just last year, Morales beat a guy name Willie Limond, or Lemon, or LeMundo for the made up Silver title. You’re reaching, Marco. Are you actually equating Morales and Mosley at this phase of their careers? As for Morale’s so called winning streak, that just laughable. Let’s compare Mosley’s last three opponent that consist of Mayweather, Margarito, and Sergio Mora to Morales’ line of tomato cans name Lorenzo, Limond, and Alfaro.
Here is the laugh of the year. “So even if Marquez fights Erik Morales which is the safer choice in your eyes, this Morales is actually a more credible fight than Pacquiao’s fight with Mosley” WOW! I got no other comment on this one, it stands out loudly on it’s own of being absurd and moronic.
“Name one fighter that Manny Pacquiao has fought in the last two years who is coming off a string of impressive victories, a dominant performance, or is in his prime?”
Pacquiao beat these opponents within the last two years: Records are up to the Pacquiao fight.
Juan Manuel Marquez – 4 wins in a row
David Diaz – 9 wins in a row at 32 wins and 1 lost
Ricky Hatton – 2 win in a row at 45 win and 1 lost.
Miguel Cotto – 2 win in a row at 34 wins and 1 lost
Joshua Clottey – at 35 wins and 2 lost, one disqualification
Marquez fought these opponents within the last two years: Records are up to the fight with Marquez.
Manny Pacquiao – loss for Marquez
Juan Diaz – in JD’s last two fights, a loss to Campbell and beat Katsidis
Floyd Mayweather – loss for Marquez
Juan Diaz – (rematch) JD is coming off two straight loss against Malignaggi
Katsidis – Katsidis loss 2 out of 6 in last 6 fights
Casamayor – is last two fights, Casa loss to Santa Cruz but got gift win, and he beat Katsidis
As you can see, Marquez can hang with the little dogs, but when he tries to run with the BIG DOGS, he gets his butt kick.
I never said that Marquez is a chicken. But I am saying that Marquez IS a crybaby! He IS also a beggar! Pacquiao IS the king of Boxing; he can grant or deny an opponent’s wish to be the next opponent. He has the right to do that on his terms, he is the King. Potential opponents are not forced to sign anything, they can walk away at any time, or choose to accept.
Marquez use to be a cunning strategist outside of the ring. But lately I have come to realize that he is no longer that. Multiple hits to the head can have devastating effects on the brain. I think the 4 canvas-hugging, knockdowns he suffered against Pacquiao have taken its toll on Marquez’s brain. It is evident in his latest act of stupidity. He is desperately begging to jump into the pool of lava called Manny Pacquiao. Promoter Bob Arum is warning Marquez not to jump into the lava pool. He is telling him to stop, look around, go to the edge of the pool, test it and feel around. This time, know and prepare yourself before jumping into a foreign element. Arum is actually the good guy here, he saw Marquez’s lava act against Mayweather and wants to prevent another lava jump.
Marquez doesn’t want to walk over to the edge of the lava pool and have a test, he wants to make the leap to the lava pool once again. He wants to commit suicide. King Pacquiao is gently trying to talk Marquez out of his desperation. LMAO! On the other hand, Roach is saying, “F#ck him, if he wants to commit suicide, let him. I’m f#cking tired of his crying!” Classic Freddie Roach!
Stay out of the lava pool, Marco Pollo! 😉
