Mark Wahlberg

I Could Knock Out

Manny Pacquiao

12/3/2010 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Wahlberg claims he's had so much real-life fighting experience -- he could knock out Manny Pacquiao ... if he could catch the dude with a suckerpunch.

Wahlberg was on the "Dan Patrick Show" this morning -- where he revealed that he "clocked" a guy in a L.A. nightclub recently ... and "fish hooked" some guy's eye socket during a rumble at a Patriots-Jets football game a few years ago. Crazy violent stuff. 

But the most shocking part -- Wahlberg, who trained as a boxer for his new movie "The Fighter" -- thinks he could K.O. Manny Pacquiao ... if he could land a suckerpunch to the side of his head.

Wahlberg explains, "If I can choke him and wrestle him than that's it ... but I don't want to be, you know, getting picked apart by him ... that's not a good call."

To Alex, it has been repeatedly do***ented that MW does his own fighting in this film. No extras, no special effects. Get your facts straight (speculation is only that).

Wait, not Manny. I think Wahlturd meant PeeWee Herman. And even then, my money would be on PeeWee. Frauds everywhere. In the politics we have Sarah Palin. In Hollywood we have this little puffed up inflated windbag. I recently saw a screening of The Fighter. Mike Tyson was there and he laughed at the fight scenes. Christian Bale is okay. But, he ain't Batman. All this Oscar hype is coming from the people behind the film, not real voters. It's time to send this bum back to Boston.

On December 18th, this piece of crap will be totally forgotten. Now, if the studio puts up enough cash they can buy a nomination for Bale. So, he's a junky. Who cares. But, money rules in Hollywood. And the Oscar is for sale. It has nothing to do with what people think of a film. You notice the junk that gets nominated. It's all an inside job. You really think there's some kind of voting process going on here. Gimme a break.

Hey guys! simmer down on the comments... if you guys aren't aware, Mark Wahlberg is actually Pacquiao's boy. He's followed Pacquiao in training and fights; going to the Wild Card Gym regularly and to Vegas, Dallas to watch Manny's fights. Yeah, it is awkward that he made this little comment, but I really don't think that he meant anything offensive out of it. Mark really looks up to Manny.. just like Jeremy Piven does.

Pac would beat and rape the living sh#t out of mark in a street fight. Mark is only 5'8 and Pac's a 5'6 1/2 freak of nature who is definitely stronger, more experienced and faster than Mark. Unless Mark has above good wrestling skills then he might have a chance. If youve never seen a small man beat the crap out of a bigger guy then its probably cuz youve never been in a real street fight. you said a normal oversized man would beat a 5'6 asian, but how bout a 5'6 caucasian? and how big is this normal oversized guy in your imagination against a 5'6 asian?

how many pro fights has wahlberg had? training/sparring and beating up some regular folks is completely different than fighting a professional fighter. what's the point in saying you can KO a guy with a sucker punch?

Sourpuss    

definitely! NOT with a punch but with his RAP. If he raps infront of Manny, he will definitely knock Manny out!

on a serious note, Mark Wahlberg is a huge fan of the Champ and always there to support his fights.
