Manny Pacquiao will finally shut Juan Manuel Marquez up.

Marquez has been running his mouth for years, claiming that he beat Pac-Man in both of their previous fights.

No one knows what world Marquez was in then, but Dinamita was actually beaten both times by Pacquiao.

Marquez visited the Philippines after the two last fought and thought it would be a good idea to wear a shirt that said "I beat Pacquiao twice."

Brilliant idea, Dinamita. Now, Pac-Man just wants to destroy you.

According to the Malaya Business Insight, Pac-Man took that as a personal attack and has been training extra hard for this bout.

The Malaya Business Insight spoke with both trainer Freddie Roach and promoter Bob Arum about the upcoming fight.

"I think the whining after the second fight didn’t and won’t do Marquez any good," Arum remarked in a press conference last week.

Roach agreed, saying, "One hundred percent, yes. That was a slap in the face of Manny. Manny’s definitely extra motivated in this fight.

"He’s twice harder on his sparring partners than what he usually does," Roach said, adding he has plastered Marquez’s photo on his mitts and speed bag to remind Pacquiao of what his Mexican foe did.

Someone is quite heated.

Pac-Man doesn't just want to beat Marquez; he wants to absolutely destroy him.

And, he's going to.

Marquez is past his prime and doesn't have the ability to keep up with Pacquiao like he used to.

Manny is going to silence him, once and for all, and this debate will end when Pac-Man knocks Marquez out.
