NO REST FOR PACQUIAO AS HE TRAINS THROUGH THANKSGIVING

"Tomorrow I have to train," stated 8-division world champion Manny Pacquiao, who revealed that he'll be training through the Thanksgiving holiday as he continues to prepare for his upcoming December 8 showdown with ring-rival Juan Manuel Marquez. Making his seventh appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live", Pacquiao joked about not having to worry about making weight, despite skipping the traditional Thanksgiving festivities. "I need to eat a lot so I can maintain," he continued.

When asked why he was facing Marquez for a fourth time as opposed to avenging the loss he suffered in his last fight, Pacquiao reiterated that, unlike his bouts with Marquez, the fight was so lopsided that it should've been clear to everyone, including the judges, that he was the true victor. "I don't think I need to prove something to Bradley because it's really one-sided fight the last fight that we have. I have nothing to prove to Bradley," Pacquiao explained. ""We have a fourth fight with him because he never accept he lost the fight. I have to prove it."
