Pacquiao Vs. Marquez 3: Evander Holyfield Joins Parade Of Stars Visiting Manny's Camp

Manny Pacquiao's camp as he prepares for the third meeting with Juan Manuel Marquez has been drawing stars from various sports and media forms. Basketball star Kobe Bryant, actorsGiovanni Ribisi, Mark Wahlberg, Sylvester Stallone, Jeremy Piven, Mario Lopez, Michael Pitt and Robert Duvall have all stopped by the Pacquiao camp.

The latest star to stop by is a legend in Manny's own sport. Evander Holyfield stopped by to talk to Pacquiao in the first meeting between the two men. Holyfield talked about what he feels makes Manny special in an ABS CBN aticle:

"The big thing is faith. Faith is the key to anything. Faith is part of having that confidence. The person who has confidence, they use what they have. They never complain about, I don't have this, I'm not tall enough, I'm not strong enough," Holyfield said. "They just go out there and put their best foot forward."

"What he has done, he's been able to do the things that people tell him he couldn't do," Holyfield said of Pacquiao.

Holyfield may be damaging his own reputation as one of the sport's greats through his desperate and repeated attempts to continue fighting, but he is a man familiar with greatness. Regardless of your feelings on faith and its role in athletic success, the way that Evander transitions faith into more than a religious aspect and more of a faith in one's self and the ability to overcome perceived shortcomings.
