Marquez and Pacquiao ready for rematch

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Some choice quotes from the first big press conference to hype the March 15 rematch between WBC super featherweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez and challenger Manny Pacquiao:


On Pacquiao's newest nickname, 'The Mexican Killer': "He didn't beat me the first time."

"There is so much pride. There is so much feeling in me. I want so badly to beat Manny."

""Maybe before I was put in the shadows. But I will demonstrate that I fight with heart and soul."


On whether or not he'd vacation in Mexico if he beats Marquez: "Maybe, but with more bodyguards."

"Here we go again. It is not about the belt, it's about the honor of my country."

Point being, not much in the way of choice quotes. Just two guys that want to fight for the recognized title at 130 (the fight will decide a new champion in Ring Magazine's ratings) and for national pride.
