Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez 3 possible in November 2011

Manny Pacquiao could possibly have Juan Manuel Marquez as his next opponent this coming November 2011.

Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez has already agreed to fight again for the 3rd time with Manny Pacquiao, according to Manny's promoter Bob Arum.

Los Angeles Times reported that Pacquiao and Marquez will fight at a welterweight catch weight of 144 pounds, with Marquez guaranteed with $5million.

However, the Pacquiao vs Marquez is not 100% sure to happen as Marquez's promoter Golden Boy has the contractual opportunity to match the deal and it could put Marquez in the ring against another opponent, still according to Los Angeles Times' report.

So it will really be all up to Golden Boy for the Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 to push through.

Pacquiao and Marquez first fought inside the ring in May 2004 which resulted to a draw. It was a controversial fight as one of the judges admitted after the announcement that he made an error in the scorecards. Pacquiao could have won the fight had it been the said judge did not commit the mistake.

Then Pacquiao faced Marquez again in March 15, 2008, and the Filipino boxer won the match via split decision. It was again a controversial decision. Two judges favored Pacquiao and only one for Marquez, but most boxing analysts believed Marquez should have won the fight.

Since then, Marquez was asking for another rematch with Pacquiao but that time, the latter was firm in his decision not to fight with Marquez again.

And this 2011, the Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 is possible and it's going to be a lot more interesting that Pacquiao's recent fights.

Who do you think will win the fight?
