Beristain proves prophetic

By

HOLLYWOOD—“The world may be shocked but Pacquiao will be defeated. He has a lack of focus and Juan Ma will take advantage of this. Being a fighter, a congressman, a singer, all of this, will finally catch up to Manny. You will see a great explosion by Marquez on this night.”

That was Ignacio Nacho Beristain talking to BoxingScene.com’s Michael Marley more than a year ago, before Pacquiao-Marquez 3. He was wrong that time as Pacquiao won by majority decision. Saturday night, Beristain’s words turned prophetic.

Marquez beat Pacquiao in such explosive fashion that it shook the boxing world.

Like Beristain, boxing analysts are convinced Pacquiao may have spread himself too thin for his fourth fight against Marquez. While Pacquiao was intense, he committed a defensive lapse while going for the kill and allowed Marquez to steal the victory.

    Patton said “train more in peace bleed less in war”…Manny chose to bleed and bled bigtime…boxing is hard and requires a lot of training..our bet is no longer cut for hard training…he shortened his regimen radically and for that he got what he worked for..dull reflexes,  predictable pattern of moves and less killer punches…Marquez on the other hand trained like hell and perhaps even did PED;  ever wondered why the bloke is so strong and bulky?

      well said brod !

      baka kung dumaan si champ sa strengthening condition na sinasabi ng mga experto,

      baka tumimbuwang si marquez nung tamaan sya sa 5th round.

    Tama si Nacho’s mucho. Mucho sa abang sa boxing si Marquez. Kaya hindi mabenta ang laro ni Marquez kasi Abang lagi. Ang advantage syempre sa boksing ay sa Abangero.

    Pacman will gain nothing 0n 5th : 

    The Situation Will Favor More For Marquez Even If marquez Get Knock Out , He’s Old man’
     Turning 40′s ?….

    The Worst Scenario What If Marquez Get Lucky Again ?… 0(‘-’)0
    ( im gonna express in this manner because if marquez is also 33 years old when he launched that dynamite rocket, that will be not called ” Lucky ” 0(‘-’)0)

    ( Marquez will suffer on the remaining round if he did not dilevered that lucky shot ) !!!
