Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 - Weighin Problems

The official weighin of Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 will be held on Friday Afternoon November 11, 2011(US) at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, Nevada.

Typically Juan Manuel Marquez is a lightweight division champion (135 lbs) while Manny Pacquiao is a welterweight division champion (144 lbs).

The Pacquiao vs Marquez bout will take place at 144 lbs catchweight, which is in favor for Pacquiao because Pacquiao never goes all the up to 147 pounds, his highest weight is at 145 3/4 lbs.

Juan Manuel Marquez has some trouble fighting a bigger opponent like Floyd Mayweather Jr., the last time they battled Marquez weighted at 144 while Mayweather weighted at 146, Floyd Mayweather then won via Unanimous decision over Marquez.

Manny Pacquiao can easily adjust at 144lbs because he is fast and strong while Juan Manuel Marquez(138 lbs) will have a hard time fighting at 144lbs because he is gaining weight while maintaining his speed and power under his trainer and conditioning Coach Angel Hernandez.
