The upcoming Pacquiao-Marquez fight has already been marked as another exciting boxing match to anticipate by many pinoy boxing fans. The fight is scheduled this November 12, 2011 at the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas.
Pinoy boxing champ, Manny Pacquiao, has scheduled his training early for his fight against the Mexican boxer, Juan Marquez. Perhaps, Pacquiao felt the pressure of proving that he is indeed the better fighter since his two previous fights with Marquez have been tainted with controversial endings.
Meanwhile, during a recent radio interview, Pacquiao mentioned that he has plans to run for vice president this coming 2016 elections.“Come 2016 I am going to run for vice president…no more boxing at that time,” Pacquiao said in that interview. However, the 1987 constitution states that candidates for vice president must be at least 40 years of age at the time of election. Pacquiao won’t be turning 40 until 2019. Later, during another interview with the pound for pound king, Pacquiao denied his previous statement, and said that he was well aware of the age requirement for the position of vice president. He also said that he aims for the gubernatorial seat in 2013.
Another issue that struck Pacquiao was his alleged affair with a starstruck avenger, Princess Snell. Humor has it that Pacquiao gave the young star a car and a condo unit. On the other hand, in a showbiz interview, Princess Snell denied any links to the pound for pound king, Manny Pacquiao, she further claimed that she didn’t receive any gifts from the pinoy boxing champ.
