Life After Manny

Gerry Penalosa gave Vorapin a boxing clinic and displaying how good a tactician he is last Sunday in their Invasion matchup and knocking on Destiny’s fate to have a rematch against Boomboom’s former tormentor Daniel Ponce Deleon… In attendance was his best buddy Manny Pacquiao and surprisingly former WBC champion Juan Manuel Marquez. There were no heated exchanges against Marquez but Juan Manuel once again challenges Manny for a third installment believing he won the last fight. The fight was a close one and could go either way. But why cry for a spilled milk? We never heard Manny protesting when a judge mistakenly put a 10-7 round instead of a 10-6 round on the first fight… People might have scored the fight for Marquez but those people knew the fight was close. It was a good fight and both fighters deserve a standing ovation for that fight. But I just don’t like how Marquez handles the situation. After their first fight Manny challenge Marquez to a rematch but Marquez instead took a fight against Chris John in hostile territory. Why didn’t he take a million dollar fight at that time but instead took on a penny where he lost and had to start from scratch again?
Juan Marquez and Gerry Penalosa are good tacticians but what differs from both of them is that Penalosa had to earn and won a convincing fight just to have a rematch against Deleon. Marquez have earn his megafight with Manny but his act made him a sour loser going into Pacquiao and trying him to lure for a third match.
There are still life after Manny… there are Valero’s, Guzman’s and even Chris John’s…but I guess the best thing for Marquez is to move on and get a life…
