A fourth fight between rivals Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez had once again taken place at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. It was nearly midnight when the two boxers squared off in the middle of the ring. The showdown would finally put a close to a wonderful rivalry between two fighters who literally fought toe-to-toe on each of their last three fights.

With Pacquiao winning two of the last three battles with one being a draw, Marquez certainly had “revenge” on the back of his mind. The stare-down before the fight was electric and all signals point to this fight being a great show. The fight turned out to be more than what people had expected. With an unlimited amount of action leading up to the sixth round, the “Pacquiao and Marquez 4” delivered what will for sure be considered the best fight both boxers ever had with one another.

As a recap, the first two rounds belonged to Manny Pacquiao. The head fakes, continuous jabs, and constant pressure seemed at the time to be overwhelming Juan Manuel Marquez.

It wasn’t until the third round when Marquez turned the table by hitting Pacquiao with a vicious right hand that sent the Filipino star to the mat. It was the first time in 39 rounds against Marquez that Pacquiao was knocked down. It was an unbelievable sight, one that will later dramatically impact the outcome of the entire fight.

As the battle continued, Pacquiao became more aggressive as he was finally landing shots to Marquez’s face. Pacquiao ultimately landed a shot of his own dropping Marquez in the fifth round. Pacquiao continued his surge and at the end of the round, “Pacman” once again led in points.

Then a surprising turn of events occurred. As both fighters were dueling it out, Marquez took advantage of Manny Pacquiao’s aggressiveness and landed a vicious counter right hook that would instantly end the fight in TKO.

Marquez’s knockout punch was so devastating, it brought back memories of when Manny Pacquiao had dropped English boxer Ricky Hatton. The punch left Manny Pacquiao senseless on the mat. The doctors as well as Manny Pacquiao’s team needed a few minutes before they could revive the Filipino star.

After the fight, Juan Manuel Marquez was asked how the knockout happened.

“I felt he was coming to knock me out the last three rounds and I knew he was going to be wide open.”

On this special night, the fight belonged to Juan Manuel Marquez who improved his record to 55-6-1. Marquez will be given at least $6 million for the fight while Pacquiao will receive $23 million dollars.

Juan Manuel Marquez’s last words to the crowd, “Viva Mexico!”

  1. So this is what Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum and the fighter wanted to perpetrate on the fight fans without wanting to acknowledge that Manny has been on the decline? And there were these idiots who refused to see that Manny was beaten clearly by Timothy Bradley. Fight fans here in the US who claim they have a knowledge of the sport have the IQ of a gnat! I want to see how Arum tries to spin this debacle. On the other hand, Mayweather now has no one credible left to fight within the light welterweight or welterweight division , and I seriously doubt that he wants to get his as# nailed ” by Sergio Mora, the linear middleweight champion!

    Pacquiao got $20 million for this, crushed orbital bone, and a concussion. Guess what. mo-fo’, should’ve protected his neck.

      Thanks for the comment Alan. There’s really no way to put this but that Pacquiao got outsmarted by Marquez yet again. Going into the fight, the plan in Pacquiao’s camp was to change his style so that the skilled counterpuncher in Marquez wouldn’t have the ability to time the Filipino legend.

      For a while, Pacquiao’s “head fakes” were really damaging and we saw that through Marquez’s nose and face as blood continued to gush out. However, It was the perfect plan by Marquez to lure Pacquiao into being more aggressive and throw careless punches, which ultimately sent the Filipino boxer to the canvas. It’ll be tough for Pacquiao to get another big time fight without fighting less-talented boxers first. At some point or another, when is it time to retire? It’s evident that the “Pacman” is no longer the same boxer, his reflexes are not the same and most importantly, his priorities are way different.

      Manny Pacquiao will always be considered a boxing legend, but sometimes champions have to realize that it’s their time to leave the sport. It was great while it lasted.
