Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez is being talked about so much that it begs the question of why it deserves so much hype.

There are many fights that are put under the microscope, and at this point, Pac-Man versus Dinamita has been overanalyzed way too much.

Here are three reasons why. 

 

Third Go-Round

This is the third installment of this fight. The first ended in a draw and the second with a win to Pac-Man, so what does the third have in store?

With the aging Dinamita, it should be said that the hype surrounding the fight is a bit unmerited because it more than likely is going to end in favor of Pacquiao. 

 

Doping Allegations

There are accusations pointed at Marquez, saying that he had to use performance-enhancing drugs to get ready for the fight.

This is a topic that will hang over this title fight, leaving only one result that can be looked at as honest: Pac-Man winning.

If Pacquiao loses the fight, it might as well go down with an asterisk next to it. People will forever use the argument that it was because Marquez had to gain advantage in an illegal way to even compete. 

 

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

There are many fights that people want to see, and at the top of the list is Manny Pacquiao versus Floyd Mayweather Jr.

At the bottom of that list is Manny Pacquiao versus Juan Manuel Marquez.

Everyone will still tune in because it will be a great fight.

But, a lot was said by the fact that a rumored chance at a May 5th fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao stole so many headlines—even though it was really just a shot in the dark.
