Manny Pacquiao to Pinoys: Pray for Win on Sunday

Filipino boxing champ Emmanuel "Manny" Pacquiao appealed to Filipinos to pray for his victory in his bout with Mexico's Juan Manuel Marquez on Saturday night in Las Vegas (Sunday in the Philippines).

Interviewed on dzBB radio Friday morning, Pacquiao also promised Marquez's Mexican compatriots a "good fight," which organizers dubbed Pacquiao-Marquez II, Unfinished Business.

"Sana sama-sama tayo magdasal para magtagumpay tayong mga Pilipino ngayong Linggo (I hope we can all pray together so the Filipino will triumph this Sunday)," he said when asked to give Filipinos at home a message.

When asked for his message to the Mexican people, he said he can promise "a good fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez."

"Good luck sa aming dalawa (Good luck to both of us)," Pacquiao added.

Likewise, Pacquiao said he does not expect problems during the weigh-in on Saturday, saying he has made the 130-pound limit.

But Pacquiao declined to make predictions about the fight, particularly when asked what round he expects to knock out Marquez.

"Mahirap magbigay ng prediction (It is difficult to make predictions)," he said.
