Nacho says Pacquiao will be defeated!

PACQUIAO vs MARQUEZ 3: GUADALAJARA - Mexico's greatest trainer, Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain, believes the time is now to defeat Manny Pacquiao. Marquez challenges Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight title on November 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After guiding Juan Carlos Salgado to a title win last Saturday against Argenis Mendez, Beristain flew back to his gym in Mexico City on Sunday to continue the training camp with Marquez.

After 24 rounds and two controversial endings, Nacho expects Marquez to finally come through in the third and final meeting.

"Everything I do now is point to JuanMa and to beating Manny Pacquiao on Nov. 12," Beristain told me at the airport here. "The world may be shocked but Pacquiao will be defeated. He has a lack of focus and JuanMa will take advantage of this. Being a fighter, a Congressman, a singer, all of this, will finally catch up to Manny.

"Pacquiao is a great one, yes, but no other fighter knows him, after 24 rounds, like my fighter does. You will see a great explosion by Marquez on this night."
