Boxing bets in favor of Pacquiao over Marquez

The much anticipated boxing rematch event of the year is finally happening and boxing aficionados are starting to place their bets on Pacquiao than his opponent Marquez.

Quoted as the Mexicutioner, Manny was able to pave into boxing stardom after knocking out many strong Mexican opponents. He is the strongest boxer today and been the cover of many sporting magazines, the face of many sports apparels, and many more. Manny has become the money magnet  every time  he fights and millions people are present to watch expecting him to knock out whoever he will be fighting with.

Because of Pacquiao’s stance and confidence, he gained the hearts and the pockets of the many. According to Bob Arum “Manny Pacquiao generates huge, huge business for Las Vegas and when he fights here it’s almost equivalent of New Year’s Eve and the Superbowl.”

Whenever he fights, most of the time he wins. That is why the betting game is $ 975 in favor of Pacquiao. To test Pacquiao’s strength, US Senator Dean Heller is in favor of the People’s Champ. There is no denying that this fight will be his again.

However, no one can rule out or underestimate Juan Manuel Marquez. He is more experienced than Manny and definitely has undergone rigorous training to face his greatest opponent. Definitely Marquez will give his fans the fight of their lives.

The fight will surely make Manny $ 6 Million richer and $ 5 Million for Marquez, plus the millions they can still earn for the pay-per-view buys, advertisements, and who knows what else!

The veteran Tony Weeks will be the official referee. The panel judges will be Robert Hoyle, David Moretti, and Glen  Trowbirdge – the same judges from the previous Pacquiao-Marquez’s trilogy fights.
