Pacquiao and Marquez fight for fourth time

The fact they’re much bigger than when they first met eight years ago is undeniable. Both Manny Pacquiao (left in photo) and Juan Manuel Marquez have added bulk along with the pounds, and both have had to deal with those who suspect they didn’t do it naturally. Along with the fighters, the purses and attention have grown as Pacquiao and Marquez meet tonight in Las Vegas for the fourth time in the rivalry that has served both fighters so well. Marquez will try once again to do what he hasn’t been able to do in 36 evenly contested rounds against Pacquiao – get a decision from the ringside scorecards. At the age of 39, it’s a fight that may mean more to his legacy than his future career, which is why it’s a fight he seems almost desperate to win. – Associated Press
