Pacquiao – Matrinez III

“I wanna thank the Lord… for givin’ me the strength….. to whoop this man’s ass.” Okay – so that was David Alen Grier on SNL many years ago and not Manny Pacquiao on his recent controversial bout with Juan Manuel Márquez. This 3rd matchup was supposed to bring some closure to the much anticipated fight. If cups and cans being thrown rink-side were any indication, the crowd at the MGM Grand in Vegas were none too happy with the decision to Pacquiao.

Regardless, there’s already talk of another rematch. That’s fine by me as we’ll hopefully get to work with Dish Network and Top Rank again on another boxing special. Our latest special is unique in that we take you inside Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Boxing Club. You get to see Manny training and Scott Patrick sat down with both Freddie and Manny to talk about the fight. Top Rank was kind enough to provide additional material for this special.

Photography included Sony’s PMW-EX3 and a Canon 7D. Cut in Final Cut with color grading in Red Giant’s Magic Bullet Looks. As always, a great pleasure working with Dish and Top Rank.
