There is no doubt that Juan Manuel Marquez is one of the most exciting, hard working and dedicated boxing champions that have ever graced a boxing ring. His thrilling style, unparalleled heart, and loyalty to his fans, have made ‘Dinamita’ a fighter that the boxing history books will never overlook.

It is safe to assume that a person who has had an unusually interesting life, such as many history-shaping sportsmen and politicians, has a story to tell. That story, their autobiography, rarely turns out to be dull and dry, and by telling it, they tell the world of what it takes to shape your dreams into reality.

Juan Manuel Marquez did just that. He has written an autobiography titled, “Yes, I beat you Pacquiao.”

According to BoxingScene, Marquez had the following to say about his new book:

“This book is about how I worked to achieve what I have achieved, with character, courage, and the desire that must be there to get what you want. The book which I wrote, and obviously I was helped a little with editing, was based on what I did and what I did to succeed. I speak of discipline, responsibility, and to do so in a book is very important because it’s a great way for people to know a little bit more about me.” 

The contents of the book seem to be average and self-explanatory, but the title shows Marquez’s obsession and disappointment in his trilogy against his Filipino rival.

I don’t blame Marquez for coming up with such an offensive title towards Pacquiao: it is very creative and will definitely help the book sell. I am looking forward to reading the autobiography, and am sure we are going to find a lot of interesting facts about his boxing career, certain lucrative fights, and maybe get some inside information on how things work leading up to a big fight.
