Pacquiao-Marquez 4 will be their last Face-off?

The eight-division champion, Manny Pacquiao and four-weight division champ, Juan Manuel Marquez both agreed that this fourth bout will be the last in the chapter of their storied rivalry. Marquez said when asked about the possibility of staging a fifth fight against Pacquiao, "I don't think so. Maybe this would be the last fight with Manny."

Pacquiao also agreed with his opponent's answer and was quoted as saying, "I think this is the last fight with him." On the other hand, when he was asked as to why he chose JuanMa over Timothy Bradley, - who defeated him via a controversial split decision - Pacquiao answered that he opted to fight Marquez because he has gotten tired of the Mexican's claim that he never lost a fight against him in all of their bouts. He also confidently said that Marquez would be surprised in their upcoming fight on December 8. "This time, I'll change my style and be more aggressive.", Pacquiao added.

The Pacquiao-Marquez 4 already sold more than 13,000 tickets during the opening weekend of sales, according to Top Rank, and is expected to sell-out come December 8 meeting at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. So who do you think will win? Would Pacman finally knock Marquez out or will Marquez get a taste of his longed victory?
