Seems like a silly topic, but I actually thought he's progressed quite a bit since I last hear him speak in English. It ain't exactly the easiest language to learn now, even as a Spanish speaker.

I'm glad because if this helps him connect with even a few more fans to the point where more PPV's are bought, then he earns more. I love watching this guy fight and hopefully he can close out his boxing career with both great wins and adequate compensation.

In related news, I'm really, really looking forward to this fight. I think it will be highly competitive to say the least.

also wtf is this shit with the drug testing, I get that the USADA isn't 100% non corrupt but the VADA was created by the dude who sold PEDs so neither company is really all that clean.

it has became very clear to me that bradley is reading the websites and believing the bullshit. he's just repeating the non-sense of other idiots.

usada is the organization that busted lance armstrong and they aren't credible? vada has victor conte on their board and they're legit? it ain't hard to figure. especially when u consider the hacks championing vada also happen to be buddies with conte and write favorable shit about him.

Not gonna lie. He's definitely been on "that bullshit". A 40 year old man doesn't just get ripped like that out of nowhere, ESPECIALLY at a higher weight. Oh well, Manny was juicing too so whatcha gone do...

Amazing how the media and the fans say that Juan was juicing when he fought Manny the 4th time, but Manny gets the excuse that he is a freak of an athlete. In the history of all of boxing no one got stronger and faster as they moved up in weight except for Manny. Manny gets stretched out and people now want to say drugs is an issue in boxing. I see he is using drug testing for his fight with Rios. Until someone has clear proof that Juan was juicing, I say fair game. If Manny can say that he was clean then so can Juan. Juan never turned down a drug test unlike the Congressman.

This is a bit off-topic but since we're talking about Marquez.. I was talking to some Mexican dude the other day. He was going on about how much he hates Marquez because of his political support for the current president. He said he RECIEVES money from the current administration and is a real asskisser of some really corrupt politicians. He dedicated the Pacquiao win to this guy.

Apparently many Mexican boxers do it to some extent but Marquez is the worst.

Erik doesn't really do it at all. Canelo does it a little. But Marquez loves to kiss government ass.

Sad story but true. I think he's a great fighter but I guess drinking all that pee he got a taste for kissing ass.

Who gives a flying shit. He knows where his bread is buttered. Who cares. And why are you talking to a Mexican who lives in he states... if he wants to make a difference he should go to Mexico run for office and change shit. Don't bitch from another country. That is weak.

I was talking to a Mexican who lives in Mexico.

We were talking about politics and then started talking boxing. I gave a shit, mainly cos it was the opinion of the guy I was talking to. I'd always respected Marquez more or less as a warrior. So we started talking boxing and he came out with this big long rant about Marquez, really angry long rant.

He started on Canelo so I was curious and just started throwing names at him. Then he just concluded that they aren't that bad but Marquez is the worst for it.

He's definitely a Mexican in Mexico. I don't want to drag this off-topic too much.

Just was something about Marquez I heard from a bona fide Mexican patriot that stuck in my head cos it came as a surprise.

Manny dont get no excuses. I think he the king of juicers. He gets the credit for initially not making the Mayweather fight come off because of his stance on testing. I have no doubt in my mind that his Barry Bonds like ascent was natural.

You guys do know its absolutely more than possible to gain muscle mass right? It's not like it happened overnight, it took him about a year to get that big. Come on guys, yea its possible he juices, anybody can he juicing. But isn't it more possible that one of the more dedicated and hard working fighters the sport has seen just amounted muscle mass naturally?

Check, in their eyes on Manny can have muscle. Forbid anyone else that works their ass off in the gym and gives 100% to their craft, no they are juicing. Manny is the only one that can carry weight and KO fighters. If Rios gets in his licks and knocks Manny down than he is juicing. There is only one pure fighter in the game and that is Manny.

Manny is a great fighter and an amazing athlete but its those views and those fans that made me grow some disdain towards him.

Him and marquez come from opposition ends

Manny is a great athlete, most fighters are, but they act like he is the only one. I mean, Sergio Martinez (excuse his last performance) is a great athlete, Mike Garcia, and a slew of others are all great athletes. Tim Bradley has a tremendous build, but no one gets credit for being a great athlete except Manny. That is what I do not like. I am not taking anything away from Manny, I just feel his fans see him as the epitome of all of boxing. I hate it. Which is why I can not cheer for him. I was a big fan when he was at the lower weights, but now, I am good.

PS: You'd have to wonder how he's gonna handle a counter shot from JMM, now that he's blown up this big between fights. I mean we saw how he had a hard time taking those punches in the Provodnikov fight. I hope I'm wrong here...

Good ol' Timmy will be fine...I hope. At this point of JMM's career...his experience is his biggest and most dangerous weapon. That wear and tear isn't hard to see at all, but JMM's one of those "go out there and get the job done" type of fighters, and he's always in great shape...hence why he can hit the deck and recover at a decent rate. Timmy, as always, will be ready though.

He just better move that big ass head in this fight. Now that I think about it, as stupidly as he fought in the Ruslan fight because of that chip on his shoulder, I wonder how he'll conduct himself against a guy who just KO'd the guy that caused his current career so much grief, after his "win" (close) over him. Hmm....

How important is to know English? Alvarez has a following that you would actually think he was a Top Notch fighter who has fought everyone at 154 and that dude doesn't speak a lick of English. His Spanish is even boring. Marquez is at least exciting when he speaks English and when he speaks Spanish. This is a dumb ass THREAD!

Down here in the Philippines everyone could speak English. The more educated ones speak with perfect English grammar, while the less educated ones speak with less perfect grammar but nevertheless still speak English.
I don't quite understand why Mexico, which is just right beside the USA, has quite a population that don't even speak English at all or can't understand English at all.
MaxPayne
Why would you speak English when you can speak a beautiful language like Spanish ?

Just kidding. They've just never really needed to. English is also relatively easy to learn from the perspective of a Spanish speaker.

Regardless, my interest is simply in JMM making as much money as he can as he rounds out his career.

He's given us excellent fights while showcasing beautiful technique. I love watching the guy fight and I hope he goes out in style.

^speaking of Spanish, the Filipino language is actually 50% Spanish and 50% Indonesian. The Spanish language was adopted here when the Spanish invaded Asia (Philippines precisely) and ruled for some 300 years. While the natives here are of Indonesian descent. So basically 2 languages were mixed up.

Spanish words such as Lamesa, Savon, Salvaje, Silya, Coche, Piloto, Pero, Syempre, Amor, Velosidad, Porque are just a few of the day-to-day words that we use here.

Which is why no one really perfects it. Language depends on the area which the person is from. When I was down south I could not understand a damn thing half of the people were saying to me. When I went NYC and CT I was almost afraid to ask question because of the energy that they spoke. I was like damn. Cali is different because we just are. The worse dialect as to be in Alabama and Louisiana! Forget language, it is completely out the door. Texans piss me off, I hate their twang. Now Hawaiians, the ladies, just sound sexy as ever. Chicago people sound like shit. lol

He definitely deserves it. I think his next fight is gonna be spectacular, him and Bradley are a lot alike in some ways. They carry themselves with so much confidence never say die and take so much pride in what they do. I think its gonna be a helluva fight!!!
