In just over a week, the boxing world will receive the final verdict on one of the biggest questions facing the sport: Who reigns supreme in the epic battle between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez? Tune in Saturday, December 8, on PPV to find out.
The two fighters will face off for the fourth time in the past eight years, the first occurring in 2004, then subsequent fights in 2008 and 2011. The initial bout resulted in a draw, then Pacquiao won the next two fights in close, if not downright controversial decisions.
If a fourth fight seems unconventional, it is—not only because two pugilists typically don't face off this many times, but also because of the current climate that exists in boxing. Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. are still stuck trying to schedule their much-anticipated fight, and Pacquiao has no interest in fighting Timothy Bradley a second time, after suffering a loss in one of boxing history's worst decisions.
Bleacher Report catches up with future Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach and arguably this generation's best pound-for-pound fighter Manny Pacquiao as they prepare for a fourth go-around.
