Default Arthur picks Marquez to beat Pacquiao

In a Ring Magazine poll, two top-caliber contenders, junior lightweight Alex Arthur and featherweight Steven Luevano have both picked Marquez to win.
“The fight will be an absolute cr@cker,” said Arthur, who picked Marquez to win because “he is a far better boxer than Pacquiao.”
Arthur said in their first fight if Pacquiao hadn’t dropped the Mexican three times in the first round, Marquez “would have won easily. Marquez is easily the best fighter in the division. I just think Marquez is brilliant.”
Luevano said he expects Marquez “to counter-punch again because that’s the only way to catch Pacquiao, getting him on his way in.” Luevano picked Marquez to win by decision.

Marquez did outbox PAC in their first fight, it is possible, we will soon find out.

Marquez clear UD, the Pac bubble will be burst. I think Manny can only beat brawlers, not boxers.

Im inclined to agree with Alex even though JMM has slipped since 2004...Pac just has not looked quite the same in his last few fights either...

I have a feeling that JMM will take this

Agree, i think people are underestimating JMM. He is one of the best technicians about and as he said inan interview i read, with Pac boxing more he will be alot easier to read as aposed to before when he was all gung ho and the punches where coming from weird angles.

Plus JMM can punch too, people forget this, although Pac is a ferocious puncher, i think people get a little carried away with it.

i think marquez will win but i ll be rooting for pacquiao.To have beaten convincingly two living legends of the ring in barrera and morales is a great acheivement.Im hoping he ll then fight valero or guzman who are two terrific fighters at junior lightweight

Totally agree, JMM may have gone back slightly although he looked pretty good last time out against Juarez but I think Pacman has gone back more.

Mannys camp reckon that he has only been 60% focussed for some of his recent fights but this time he is 100% - how often have we heard that sort of thing from boxers?

I think JMM will keep out of harms way and win a clear points victory.

PAC will be very intense, but Marquez is a very good boxer, he could win this fight.
