Update: Pacquiao won via Majority decision
This is my good luck shout out post to Pacman and Team Pacquiao!
Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will be boxing out Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12, 2011 (November 13 in Manila). The WBO Welterweight World Title will be at stake and the boxing match will be held at MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

This time I will be in Manila, Philippines like the Pacquiao Mosley, Pacquiao Cotto and Pacquiao Margarito bouts. I am not sure if I scored free seats courtesy of PLDT MyDSL Watchpad, because as of posting the contest organizer haven’t confirmed it yet. Update: Confirmed, I got some free invites courtesy of PLDT MyDSL Watchpad 🙂
Win or lose I will be posting some tips on where viewers can catch the Pacquiao vs Marquez match aside from the usual choice of Ilemi TV, Sopcast, Justin TV, and PLDT MyDSL Watchpad. But a teaser first, the Pacquiao vs Marquez weigh in

Pacquiao vs Marquez HBO PPV
Pacman is returning to HBO PPV (Pay Per View). So if you have HBO this is the top choice. I suggest you gather your family and friends and divide the HBO PPV fees among yourselves. Bring some food too (potluck)!
Pacquiao vs Marquez Solar Allaccess
Solar Allaccess is like HBO PPV and it may be related to Solar Sports. But if this is like HBO PPV then I guess Pacquiao vs Marquez Solar Allaccess may be good option
Pacquiao vs MarquezGMA 7, Solar Sports and AKTV/IBC-13
This is free Pacquiao vs Marquez viewing but will come with a tradeoff: delayed telecast. Yes, network rival ABS-CBN CH2 will already report who won the match via their news flash and yet you are still watching tons of TV advertisements/commercials between say round 1 and 2? Mas matagal pa ang commercial kesa sa aktuwal na bakbakan!!! Winner!
Let’s get serious with the next options:
Pacquiao vs Marquez PLDT MyDSL Watchpad
In my other post, I invited my readers to kindly visit www.pldtwatchpad.com and register there to check how they can Pacquiao vs Marquez III event. This is definitely worth a try but you should hurry as slots may run out soon.
Disclaimer: I do not guarantee if the channels below will work. Some of them worked in the previous Pacman fights against Mosley, Margarito, Cotto and Clottey. But I will try my best to update this one with available ones…
Pacquiao vs Marquez Ilemi TV (Ilemi.TV)
Ilemi TV is a streaming site. Ilemi have gone several changes in their domain name, before they were Ilemi.me, then they changed to Ilemi.com and now they are Ilemi.tv. This is another option for Pacquiao vs Marquez: Ilemi, just remember and try their sites (go to ilemi.com or ilemi.me or www.ilemi.tv) or ilemi.eu and look for Pacquiao vs Marquez related channels.
Pacquiao vs Marquez Sopcast
Sopcast offers video streaming services. You have to download Sopcast client first and then know specific channels playing Pacquiao vs Marquez Sopcast. This worked on previous Pacquiao bouts but the issue we got last time (Pacquiao Mosley) is that Sopcast was heavily monitored and policed. The usual known channels returns error when I tried it now so I will check other sources soon.
Update 2011.11.13 8AM (GMT+8)
Some Pacquiao vs Marquez Sopcast channels courtesy of a reader in the comments.
sopcast channels unavailable
I have not verified yet, but some are familiar sopcast channels of previous Pacquiao matches. Try it.
Pacquiao vs Marquez Justin.TV
Justin.TV is another video streaming site. Viewers need to go to Justin.TV website, and for popular boxing fights like Pacquiao vs Marquez, Justin.tv usually highlights that they are serving it. But just like Sopcast, the problem we experience with Justin.TV was the heavily monitoring and policing and channels streaming Pacquiao were booted out. This happened in the last four to five fights of Pacman so I am not hopeful with Justin.TV but again you can try and try in case you have no luck with ilemi and sopcast.
I will update this post if I have other choices.
Again, Good luck to Manny Pacquiao! Go Pacman! Go Team Pacquiao!
