Photos of Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez 4

December 17, 2012

It was just last weekend that Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez fought for the fourth time at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Both men predicted a knockout and it was Juan Manuel Marquez who knocked out Pacquiao cold with one second remaining of Round 6.
This weekend, HBO re broadcast the fight and it was one of the greatest fights I have seen in awhile. Pacquiao vs Marquez will go down as one of the greatest boxing rivalries as they blessed us with four great fights.  Here are photos that I was able to gather that document their fourth battle.

Landfill Harmonic–The Amazing Documentary

December 14, 2012
Landfill Harmonic is an upcoming documentary that tells the story of an amazing musical orchestra from Cateura, Paraguay where the youth play instruments made by recycle materials (trash). The instruments are jaw dropping incredible!The music is beautiful! The story is amazing! I can’t wait to see the full length documentary. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek.

Here is another video that talks about the program, Los Sonidos de la Tierra, which is the musical program that the youth in Cateura are a part of.

Marquez brutal knockout over Pacquiao cements his legacy

December 12, 2012


Juan Manuel Marquez did the unthinkable on Saturday night by knocking out Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In a round that he was on the verge of losing, Juan Manuel quickly set up Pacquiao and with one second in round 6, Marquez delivered a perfectly time counter right to Pacquiao’s chin that knock him out cold. It was a vicious punch that had Pacquiao out before he hit the canvas. Manny was out for at least two minutes causing greater concern amongst fans and both teams.

As a Marquez fan, the 3rd round knock down was huge! It was a wide right that sent Pacquiao flying to the ground. At that moment I felt Marquez could’ve pressure him more but he kept his calm and took the round easily.

On the 5th round, it was Pacquiao who knock down Marquez with a quick left to his face. He seem to have Marquez hurt as he open a bad cut on his nose and was trying to knock Juan Manuel out. Marquez like the true Mexican warrior he is kept countering and landing couple solid shots on Pacquiao. It was a great round!

With Marquez brutal knockout over Pacquiao, he not only earns his 55th victory and 40th knockout of his career but also received his much anticipated victory over Manny Pacquiao.

The question in everybody’s mind is will their be a Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Marquez 5 or will Marquez retire. If Marquez decides to go for a 5th fight I would have him persuade Arum to stage the fight in Mexico City possibly Estadio Azteca and get a bigger purse. If Marquez decides to retire, he would be putting an exclamation point on his amazing career.

Marquez was a Mexican living legend before his fight on Saturday night and his knockout win over Pacquiao just cemented his legacy. He is in my opinion the Julio C??sar Chavez of our generation. There will never be another boxer like Marquez, with his amazing counter punches and his ring intelligence. Marquez is the best technician we have in boxing today. Legends like Marquez don’t get replace they must be form.

If Marquez does indeed retire, he would be walking away from the sport as one of the best boxers of all time and one Mexico’s precious jewels. He would be behind Julio C??sar Chavez as one of Mexico’s greatest boxers. As a 39 year old boxer, there is not much that he can prove. He beat Pacquiao and did it in spectacular fashion. He deserves to go out like a true champ and no better way to go than his devastating knockout victory over Manny Pacquiao.

Se me enchina la piel cada vez que escucho esta rola! Me acuerdo cuando Juan Manuel Marquez entro al ring con esta cancion en su tercera pelea con Pacquiao.

“A mi no me asustan tipos lenguas largas que solo presumen para pantallar. Yo soy de los hombres que no teme nada y aunque este perdido no me se rajar.”

Entrevista de Juan Manuel Marquez despues de noquear a Manny Pacquiao

December 10, 2012

Muchos Mexicanos no estan contento porque le dedico la pelea al nuevo presidente de Mexico. Aunque no soy admirador del EPN, siento que Marquez hizo esa dedicacion como buen compatriota que es. Si Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador era el nuevo presidente creo que tambien Marquez haria lo mismo.

Independientemente de esa dedicacion, Marquez hizo una pelea. Este knock out ya dio vueltas por todo el mundo entero. Si se retira, lo haria de una forma excelente en mi opinion.
