EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — DIRECTV, the leader in sports coverage in HD, virtually offers subscribers a front row seat at the highly anticipated grudge match between Boxing Writers Association of America’s Fighter of the Decade Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and 3-Division World Champion Juan Manuel Marquez.

Witness the broadcast live on Saturday, Nov. 12 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in the Fight Capital of the World, Las Vegas.

The 24-round bout is the third of a series of very close fights between Pacquiao and Marquez with the first match ending in a draw and followed by a close split decision victory by Pacquiao.

“This fight will conclusively demonstrate who the better fighter is,” said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum.

For this fight Pacquiao is set to defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight crown, his 7th of a record 8 world titles in many weight divisions.

Always the gentleman fighter, Pacquiao speaks highly of Marquez.

“Juan is the only [opponent I have fought] who was able to anticipate many of my moves and effectively counter most of them,” Pacquiao said.

Marquez, on the other hand, has been waiting for this rematch for a long time to settle once and for all who’s the better fighter.

“I beat him the first two fights but did not get the decision. This time I will beat him again,” said Marquez.

However, all this talk will surely come to a head when both fighters enter the ring on Saturday, Nov. 12.
