Pacquiao vs. Marquez: Definitive Preview of Their Big Fight

There is less than two weeks until Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez get ready to go to war for a third time.

With 24 rounds between them, and much unfinished business left inside the ring, their Nov. 12 bout will be worth three times as much as previous fights. It could very well end up being the most significant moment of their legendary careers.

A win for either guy will mean they should have deserved victories in the first two fights, but it's Pacquiao who comes into this one with the upper hand in the form of a split-decision victory.

He has followed that win with a pound-for-pound list of beaten opponents, and has placed himself at the top of sport.

The closest Marquez got to defeating the Filipino superstar was a 2004 draw, in a fight that saw him get off the canvas three times in the very first round.

Marquez's only loss since the 2008 bout with Pacquiao was a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr, who is arguably the second best boxer in the sport.

This in-depth preview will give a closer look as to what fans should expect to see come fight night.
