If you are a boxing fan, chances are you probably already know that Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez will meet in the squared circle for the fourth time on Saturday night. Some fight fans are bored with the idea of seeing these two fight again and have no desire to watch them battle it out once more. While there are good reasons why you should and why you should not order the pay per view on Saturday night, here are five reasons you should watch the fight.

1: Manny Pacquiao is a legend.

This should go without saying, but Manny Pacquiao will clearly go down in history as one of the best boxers to ever live. He is a pound for pound great and his legacy will live on forever. Since nobody knows how much longer he will continue to fight, he is a must watch anytime he sets foot into a boxing ring. Everyone wants the opportunity to tell their grandkids about the day they saw Manny Pacquiao fight.

2: Juan Manuel Marquez is a legend.

Win or lose, Juan Manuel Marquez may not be as much of a legend as Manny Pacquiao, but he is still a legend in his own right. A true warrior inside the boxing ring, Marquez will be remembered for quite some time.

3: Always Entertaining.

Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez have already fought three times, and every single time they have put on an entertaining show for fight fans. Yes, an argument can be made that their last fight was the least entertaining of the three, but it was still a very fun fight to watch. These two always go back and forth with their exchanges and leave fight fans on their toes throughout the 12 rounds of boxing.

4: Finally a clear-cut winner?

One of the biggest reasons to watch these two fight for a fourth time is to see if there will finally be a clear-cut winner. An argument can be made for both fighters that they won each of the three previous fights. All anybody truly wants to see is a clear winner with no controversy once and for all. Will that finally happen? You won't know if you don't watch.

5: Judging

Chances are, this fight will NOT end in a knockout. That means it will once again go to the scorecards and the fate of these fighters will lay in the hands of the judges. Considering what happened to Manny Pacquiao against Timothy Bradley, the judging of the fight could end up being more entertaining than the fight itself.
