They say boxing is a dying sport. And with the absence of an American heavyweight champion, combined with the rise of the UFC, maybe there is some truth to that. But every now and then, a fight comes along and temporarily revives interest.
Saturday night’s fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez has that sort of potential. It is the fourth time these two featherweights will be stepping into the ring against each other. But if history is any indication, do not expect any closure in this epic rivalry.
Just count on being entertained. (Photos: Julie Jacobson/The Associated Press, Jeff Bottari/Getty Images)
