As noted in local news, Pacquiao and Marquez attended the press conference at the Rigodon Hall of the Manila Hotel that day and answered questions from the local and foreign media.

“This fight is very important because this will clear all doubts.” Manny Pacquiao told reporters, noting that he is not angry upon learning Marquez is claiming that he won their first two fights.

On the other hand, Marquez mentioned about a possibility of changing boxing styles for the upcoming fight and noted that he was not insulted even the current bet (8-1) is not on his side.

Marquez, 37, said that gaining weight for the fight is not a problem to him and he is not upset that it took 3 years for their third match, which he claims to be a very tough fight for both of them.

The Pacquiao-Marquez III World Press Tour in Manila was also attended by Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, with the two fighters also to appear before their fans at the Quirino Grandstand later that day.

The Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 fight will be on November 12, 2011 (November 13 in Manila) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with with 11-year old Fil-Canadian singer Maria Aragon to sing the Philippine national anthem.
