I had thoughts about this the other day. JMM will never be faster than Pac but he can be heavier than him. In the 3rd fight JMM outweighed Pac by a few pounds I believe and Pac was not too thrilled to be trading with JMM like he had been before.
I am going to guess JMM comes in at 146 to use the weight to his advantage.
Pac will come in at 142-143 to use speed.
This could be a mistake in JMMs part though if he was not able to maintain his speed.
Marquez said himself that he will come in at 142-143 too keep his speed. he also said that the reason why this fight was at full welterweight(146)pounds is because team paquiao hoped he would come in at the 146 limit to be slowed down, so marquez said he was gonna come in light
