Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez were on ESPN First Take discussing their December 8 fight, and of course blah blah about Floyd Mayweather and stuff, and here's the video.

Usually when I do video posts like this, I transcribe them for folks that can't watch the video from where they're checking the site, so that they can see what was said, but I'm not doing it here, because I find this pretty useless. People are for whatever reason interested in this level of discourse and these phony, staged arguments, and the focus of a sports coverage segment not being about the sport or the two athletes sitting there, but the two goobers at the table staging a combative conversation.

The bits where Manny and JMM do get to talk are just rehashed talking points for the press tour. Juan Manuel needs to change something and Manny needs to be 25 again. Rinse, repeat, and enjoy the video if this is what you like.
