Manny Pacquiao is looking to finally close the Juan Manuel Marquez chapter of his career Saturday night on HBO pay-per-view. Pacquiao has a win and a draw against Marquez in his career but both decisions were very close and many scored the bout for Marquez.
In Las Vegas the two men hit the scales to make the bout official. The official weight limit was a 144 pound catchweight despite Pacquiao's welterweight (147 pound) title being on the line.
Manny Pacquiao checked in at 143 pounds.
He looked very muscular as usual and the reports that he was under weight last night did not appear to be an issue of poor health. He did not look drained one bit despite being under the 144 pound limit.
Both Pacquiao and Marquez looked in great shape and hopefully that translates into a great fight.
