The ongoing rivalry between Juan Manuel Marquez and Manny Pacquiao gets a lift as Marquez criticized Pacquiao for stating the truth about him in a single line.
In an interview with Fight Hub TV, Marquez disclosed the reason behind the loss of Manny Pacquiao against Yordenis Ugas.
Marquez emphasizes one thing while talking about Pacquiao’s last loss of his career. He says, “Manny Pacquiao going down in every fight.”
According to Marquez, Pacquiao’s performance is declining over time. Moreover, he also gives the reason for it.
He proves his statement by saying, “Pacquiao, you know is his work, he is where the politician where he’s no, he is not very focused for the fights and then, and then right now, is, is good for Pacquiao because he’s, he’s retired.“
Pacquiao is the current Senator of the Philippines. Likewise, he has contributed a lot to developing his homeland.
Marquez thinks that because of Pacquiao’s additional responsibilities to his country, he cannot focus on the fights. Hence, this is the reason why he lost the fight against Yordenis Ugas.
Marquez also feels it is good for Pacquiao that he has retired and won’t fight any more professional fights.
