Marquez already training hard

While Manny Pacquiao is neck-deep in his political career, Juan Manuel Marquez is in the thick of training in the mountains of Toluca, Mexico, as the Mexican counter-puncher revs up for his December 8 faceoff with the Filipino icon in Las Vegas.

InterAKTV was told by Mexican sources yesterday that Marquez logged 13 kilometers of roadwork in the Nevado de Toluca mountains under the watchful eyes of his long-time training assistant Raul de Anda.

Marquez complained of body pain after the first two weeks of training but the 39-year-old insists he will get used to it in due time as he expressed his excitement to bang bodies with Pacquiao at the MGM Grand.

Last week, Marquez also visited the same rugged terrain and chopped wood and hit the tire with a sledgehammer ala Rocky Balboa.

A 3-1 underdog, Marquez is confident there will be no need to stage a fifth fight because he will score a convincing stoppage victory.

Marquez said training for this fight will be focused on how to stop Pacquiao so he can prevent the judges from tinkering with the score sheets.

Pacquiao countered that he will do the same thing to prove that his two wins over Marquez were genuine.

But Pacquiao won’t be reporting for training at the Wild Card until the second week of October and yesterday, he actually filed his candidacy for congressman of Sarangani.
