What can you do when a pesky fly keeps buzzing your ear? A few seconds of silence has you thinking that it went away. Wrong! You try to shoo it away but it keeps returning. It keeps bugging you and it is just irritating, frustrating, and dam right very annoying. It wants to feed from you, and it will keep pestering you until it does. Sooner or later you realize what you have to do to get rid of this irritant fly.
So you let that fly have what it wants so you can squash him for good. You offer an arm and wait, the fly thinks he will finally dine at your expense. You let him have a little taste, and a little more to position the killing blow, and then, SPLAT!! That fly was hungry and desperate, a gentle shooing wouldn’t make it go away. It was on a suicide mission. Of course he didn’t know it was a suicide mission, he thought it would dine like he had so many times before.
On the good graces of Manny Pacquiao and Bob Arum, both have tried their best to shoo Juan Manuel Marquez to go away. It is a sad day today. I am going to have to place Juan Manuel Marquez on suicide watch. He is intent to commit, “suicide by Pacquiao.” Like the fly, Juan Manuel Marquez’s (JMM) last meal will cost him greatly. SPLAT!
The big difference between JMM and the fly is that JMM knows it is a suicide mission fighting Manny Pacquiao. He is already hinting and laying out the foundation of his impending defeat. Now he is floating that Pacquiao has waited for him to age before accepting a third fight. Yet he persisted! Why? Meal ticket, it’s JMM’s retirement fund. Like the fly, he pestered Pacquiao until he could feed.
If you’ve been following my articles, I’ve been aggressively campaigning against Manny Pacquiao giving Juan Manuel Marquez (JMM) a third fight. My main gripe against JMM is that he has not proven himself worthy and able to be fighting at Welterweight. JMM’s only foray above the Lightweight division was a total disaster. He was just too small, too slow, and too weak at the Welterweight division. JMM was knocked down early in the second round by Floyd Mayweather jr, subsequently he lost every round of their fight.
When Pacquiao left the Lightweight to concentrate on fighting at his natural weight in the Welterweight division, we found out that Pacquiao is a BIG, SCARY MONSTER at 147. At Welterweight, Pacquiao is faster, takes a better punch, much stronger, hits harder, and is offensively much better than Floyd Mayweather Jr. Fighting at his natural weight, Pacquiao punished, pummeled, and sent the much bigger Antonio Margarito to the hospital with a broken orbital bone. Margarito was 17 pounds heavier than Pacquiao at fight time. SPLAT! Didn’t the paper-fisted Juan Diaz rock and wobble JMM at 135 pounds? You do the math.
According to Freddie Roach, Pacquiao has been struggling with his weight while he was fighting at 126 and at 130 pounds. The first Pacquiao/Marquez fight that ended in a draw was at 126 pounds, their second that Pacquiao won by SD was at 130 pounds.
I tried desperately to help save Marquez from himself; and from Oscar De La Hoya as well. At one time, before he sought medical help and salvation, Oscar De La Hoya wanted to use Marquez as a fertilizer. Oscar wanted to feed Marquez to his youngens, Victor Ortiz and Saul Alvarez, to generate growth for his up and coming pair of ponies. But what would a starving fly want to do with an anemic pair of ponies if a gold vein was in his sight and within reach.
Roach is particularly irritated and annoyed at JMM’s buzzing of his favorite son’s ear, Pacquiao. Arum and Pacquiao had hoped that a gentle shooing would make JMM leave and bug someone else. They tried to call Marquez off from the ledge. But JMM was intent of becoming an irritant to Pacquiao. He buzzed Pacquiao at every opportunity he had. To Roach’s delight, the pesky JMM is going to have a chance to gorge himself on Pacquiao, he thinks. An arm will now be offered to JMM.
What led Juan Manuel Marquez to this?
For the past few years, Marquez has been going around doing his version of Chicken Little’s delusional state. If you guys remember, Chicken Little was hit on the head by an acorn nut that fell from the tree. Chicken Little then tried warning everyone that the sky was falling. I’m not sure, but I think Chicken Little went around wearing a T-Shirt that read, “The Sky is Falling.” Well, after receiving numerous punches on his head, Marquez went around wearing a T-Shirt that read, “MARQUEZ BEAT PACQUIAO TWICE.
Juan’s delusions probably stemmed from his first and second fight with Manny Pacquiao. In the first fight, he was hit hard on his head numerous times and was sent reeling to the canvas not once, not twice, but three times. And it all happened in the span of three minutes. In their second fight, Marquez was once again sent to the canvas splayed on his back in the third round; at the end of that round he was sleep walking. The round ended with Marquez doing his best at impersonating of a lost puppy by tailing Pacquiao to his corner. The referee then did his best impersonation of a kindly animal shelter officer by gently cornering Marquez back to his owner.
The only way I see JMM making it to the final round against Pacquiao on November 12th is by copying the Sour Shame Mosley “Chicken Survival Dance.”
A man has got to know his limitations. JMM’s limitation is that of the Lightweight division. He knows it, but he needs the money. He knows you don’t pull on Superman’s cape, he will for a pretty penny. He knows not to spit into the wind. But then again, he drinks his own urine.
Manny is a merciful warrior, it showed against Margarito and Mosley. But wearing a T-Shirt that reads, “MARQUEZ BEAT PACQUIAO TWICE,” just to embarrass Pacquaio is disrespectful. Filipinos are nice and accommodating people, but disrespect them and you get the other side of the coin. On November 12th Marquez will get the tail end of an ass kicking.
Manny tried his best to shoo Marquez away. Remember this, Marquez fans campaigned for this fight to happen. They foolishly think Marquez can win. The Mayweather fans don’t want to see the fight to happen. They don’t want another hit to the face that shows Manny will outdo Mayweather once again.
I was against this fight, don’t blame anyone but Marquez and his fans for the outcome.
Let’s see an example of what I’m talking about:
