Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez appeared on ESPN’s First Take afternoon talk show to discuss their upcoming fourth fight. It’s a part of the increased coverage that ESPN will be providing for boxing, particularly HBO events, with an agreement between the two networks which was recently struck. Right here, you can find the video of Pacquiao and Marquez on ESPN First Take.
I’d normally steer very wide clear of First Take, because Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith are pretty unbearable, and doesn’t boxing have enough over the top personalities at this point? Nevertheless, it’s good to see Pacquiao and Marquez getting the publicity here.
They discuss their fight, as well as the potential of a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight, and whether or not Mayweather is ducking him and that kind of stuff. Pacquiao slips on sunglasses when asked if Mayweather is scared of him, and says, he thinks it’s kind of that. Watch the video here to check it out.
