LAS VEGAS (AP) — Manny Pacquiao acts as though it’s personal, then claims it’s not. Just another night in the ring, another notch on his belt, another bout in which he can take millions of dollars back to the Philippines.

It’s not that easy for Juan Manuel Marquez. He remains convinced he won both previous two fights with Pacquiao. He will enter the ring Saturday night as eager for redemption as he is to claim the biggest payday of his long boxing career.

Pacquiao returns to the ring for the first time since beating Shane Mosley in May, fighting a familiar foe in another lucrative night of work. He and Marquez have already gone 24 rounds with each other, rounds that were very close.

The MGM Grand Garden Arena is sold out for the fight that’s avalible on HBO pay per view starting at 6 P.M. Pacific Time.
