ORIGINAL: We’re just about six weeks away until Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez meet in the ring for the fourth time. Despite Pacquiao winning the last two matchups, it should be a battle if history repeats itself. Their matchups have been close; the first time the two met in May of 2004 the outcome was a draw, however one judge later admitted they made an error on the scorecard which would’ve given Pacquiao the win. In the duo’s last meeting, just about a year ago, many felt that Marquez was stripped of the win. Their fourth fight will likely be their last due to Marquez’s ripe old age of 39. 

Yesterday, HBO announced that it will feature the two fighters in their “24/7″ reality series. According to Dan Rafael’s blog, the 16th boxing installment of the series will air Saturday, Nov. 17, Nov. 24 and Dec. 1. The finale is to premier Friday, Dec. 7 (the night before the fight).

The excitement continues to build (with the September announcement that Pacquiao would fight Marquez and yesterday’s announcement of the Pacquiao/Marquez 24/7 feature), as do ticket prices. In general, we’ve seen a gradual increase in the average ticket price for the December 8th fight; that’s not including September 28th, the first day tickets went on the market. Fightnews reported that 13,000 tickets were sold in that opening weekend which left less than 3,000 tickets remaining; perhaps the reason prices were up that Friday.
