LAS VEGAS - They are asking all the wrong people here to predict the outcome of Saturday night's fight between Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley. Sportswriters? Are you kidding? This analysis demands a bit more depth than arguing the merits of the designated hitter. Too bad Sigmund Freud has departed us. His insights into these two fighters could be both learned and insightful. In the blue corner, from the Philippines, is the congressman from the Sarangani district, Manny Pacquiao, with a record of 55-5-2 and 38 knockouts.

LAS VEGAS - Theories abound as to why Manny Pacquiao has gone seven fights since 2009 without knocking out an opponent. The effects of age on the 35-year-old, the talent and size of the opponents, conditioning flaws and distractions in his personal life and in his public life as a congressman in the Philippines are among the most cited reasons. Pacquiao's opponent Saturday at the MGM Grand, World Boxing Organization welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, has called out Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 knockouts)

Juan Manuel Marquez was subjected to skepticism in December when the newly buffed-up multichampion boxer knocked Manny Pacquiao out stone cold, the first time Pacquaio hit the canvas in the pair's five fights. Now, Marquez, in advance of his Oct. 12 world welterweight title fight at Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas against Palm Springs' Timothy Bradley, is due to be subjected to an unspecified number of random drug tests. There remains, however, some questions about who will preside over the testing.

For those who might yawn at the idea of Manny Pacquiao's fighting Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time Dec. 8, know that Pacquiao does not. As a Tuesday conversation with The Times and an ensuing sparring session revealed, the Filipino superstar burns for the brawl. “Aggressiveness is the most important thing for this fight,” Pacquiao said. Although he has won two of the decisions -- including a victory last November that might have been the strongest  performance yet by Marquez -- and had a draw, Pacquiao found motivation to erase some perceptions that have become attached to the series.

LAS VEGAS -- Juan Manuel Marquez on Monday vowed, “I am a clean fighter,” predicting his drug tests in Nevada will come back negative while adding that he'll seek to do random, Olympic-style testing before his next fight. “I feel very happy with my training, I feel great about the tests,” Marquez told The Times in a telephone conversation from his MGM Grand suite before boarding a flight home to Mexico. “I won't have a problem.” Marquez, 39, rallied from three bitterly contested fights against Manny Pacquiao - - two losses and a draw - - to knock out Pacquiao with a precise and brutal right counter-punch late in the sixth round in a likely fight-of-the-year performance Saturday night.

After much deliberation, Manny Pacquiao decided that meeting his foil, Juan Manuel Marquez, for a fourth time trumps avenging a controversial loss in a fight most believe he won. Two sources close to the negotiations but unauthorized to speak publicly about the deal, told The Times on Wednesday that Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 knockouts) will fight Marquez on Dec. 8 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas after rejecting a rematch with Timothy Bradley. Pacquiao edged Marquez in a majority decision in November, and the two have been separated by only the slightest of margins in their prior 36 rounds.

Juan Manuel Marquez's promoter in Mexico said Monday that the fighter was pleased with terms for a May 17 fight against Mike Alvarado at the Forum, and has had a change of heart and is open to a fifth fight against Manny Pacquiao. Marquez (55-7-1, 40 knockouts) told promoter Fernando Beltran he wants to share the Alvarado offer with his wife, and trainer “Nacho” Beristain, to get their input, then will meet again with Beltran on Thursday in Mexico City. The 40-year-old Marquez, who last fought and lost a split decision to Timothy Bradley in October in Las Vegas, previously said he wasn't interested in a fifth fight against Pacquiao, who fights for Bradley's World Boxing Organization welterweight belt April 12 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

President Obama has never tried to hide the fact he is a big sports fan, throwing Super Bowl parties at the White House and filling out his NCAA Tournament bracket each March, but it seems he is not as enthusiastic about the Olympics. Obama has yet to attend the Games during his tenure in office and probably will skip the upcoming 2014 Sochi Olympics. Michael McFaul, the U.S. ambassador to Russia, says he expects a "presidential delegation" to make the trip on Obama's behalf.

Remember all those time Mike Scioscia blocked the plate when he was with the Dodgers? The time Jack Clark almost knocked him unconscious when barreling over him during a Dodgers-Cardinals game? The time Dave Parker blasted into Steve Yeager (who held onto the ball, by the way)? Remember when Pete Rose ruined the career of Ray Fosse during the 1970 All-Star game? Hold on to those memories, because you won't be seeing many more collisions. Major League Baseball announced on Wednesday that it intends to eliminate home plate collisions by 2015.
