After a big fight on HBO PPV, it is our habit to conduct a review of the fight.
Manuel Marquez won via technical knockout after he knocked out cold Pacquiao on the 6th round. An unexpected counter punch right straight jab from Marquez landed at the face of Pacquiao which lost his consciousness.
At the beginning of the fight, during the first two rounds, Manny Pacquiao was able to control pace and speed of the fight. Unfortunately, he was down on the third round from a right hook of Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao fans lose hope at that time, but it was regained after Marquez was down by Pacquiao on the fifth round.
Last 10 seconds on the sixth round, Manny Pacquiao became too aggressive and it seems that he wanted to finish the fight on that round and knock out Marquez before the bell rang. However, an unexpected counter punch from Marquez landed right at the center of his face and he was down losing his consciousness which makes the referee decide to end the fight. What happened on the sixth round shocked all boxing fans all over the world. For the past ten years, nobody KO’d Pacquiao.
Few hours after the fight, boxing fans of both fighters posted their opinions and comments about the fight on our Facebook Page. Here are some of them.
Thomas Carreda Justice marquez won!!!!
Jonathan Recinos I Cant Believe What Historical Punch Pacquiao Got! Greatest Fight & Knock Out Of The Century!
Wicho Machado Paquiao is a politician now. Not a boxer.
Hectoor Capo Cabrales Marques is one Bad Ass Mexican Boxer!! It was not a lucky punch, he simply knew that the first time he got knocked out he had to box Manny in a calm way because he saw that Manny wanted to knock Marques out in a Fast Agrresive way. Manny felt way over confidence even tho he was winning every round. Very pleased for this two legend boxers. VIVA MEXICO CABRONES!!!!
Luis Gonzales Lo que nececitan tanto marquez.como paquiao es retirarse son unos excelentes boxeadores ya formaron su historia lo mejor es que se retiren como unos grandes del boxeo
Joseph Serrato I believe this fight could have been one of their last if not their last, I say Marquez vs Bradley would make quite the fight for Marquez to defend the title next year. And other hand, my respects for Paquiao but Marquez has always been the better fighter…Y VIVA MEXICO!!!
Robert Alfaro wow what a fight….pacquiao-marquez 5?
Garry Yap pacquiao marquez 5! do it again so it wont be called a lucky punch!
Julious Ja-Juan Randolph Right hand said that from the beginning …what put him on his back..?????????*^▁^*
Katarina Kaxna Gerhatova Both to retire.very gd fight and viva Marquez
Michael English Great fight, Not the result one was hoping for but thats boxing for ya, gotta love it, wasn’t a lucky punch as well, marquez knew what was coming and manny was sloppy first with that lead jab and having his straight down near his knee, very sloppy!!!
Garry Yap 2-1 pacquiao still leads this war!!! one more time!!!
Joseph Serrato Weather he wore a rosary or not had nothing to do with the fight. It was only him and Marquez up in the ring. I was a boxer myself and I never had any excuses for when I list a fight, and Paquiao shouldnt have any and his posy or the so called boxing experts shouldn’t either. He lost in the cleanest and most amazing of ways. A KO, and nobody can take that from Marquez.
Christine Carino VIVA MEXICO!!!!!!! Marquez so happy for you and thank you for giving us a great fight you are badass so sorry for pacman you got KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bout time history today
Edgar Flores Both retire. Or yeah marquez vs bradley would be good. Please no more mayweather talk he’s irrelevant , ducking n dodging…. but I guarantee he will call pacman out now
Edgar Flores Marquez vs danny garcia
Wilson Maina Fair and square at last my man Marquez,got his revenge.The thorn has been removed.pheew what a stunner.
Garry Yap manny was tripped of by marquez’s left foot that’s why he wasn’t able 2 get away with that lucky punch.
Johanna Bogantes It was a lucky punch !! Pacquiao is the best and Marquez just got lucky tonight , I will love to see fight # 5 and then Marquez will know who is the best of the best fighter PACQUIAO!!! I don’t think that was a clean fight!!!
Celina Chavez So now its a lucky punch? Pac did say he was ready for this fight and didn’t show it. Yall aint out there in the ring. Let them niggas fight and do what they gotta do. This was to show that Marquez had his previous fights stolen therefore knocked him out to make it CLEAR who has always been the best. Don’t get booty hurt just accept the fact. If yall want to be a judge in the future then be. But don’t try to say what you don’t know now.
Tarryn Libralovejones Sampson That was one of the best fights I’ve seen. Action packed from start to finish. I can’t stop talking about that fight.
The next action for Pacquiao will have to be carefully planned. A lot of boxers are never fully able to recover from a knock out like that (ie Shane Mosley, Roy Jones, Mike Tyson to name a few). In my opinion PacMan wasn’t hurting Marquez with most of those punches. It might be time to reevaluate the career. Congressman & Hennessy Ambassador may be a good look!
As for Marquez, the time is prime. He got robbed in the past. He made sure there was NO doubt on the winner of this fight. Next step…I say it’s Mayweather time! Why not??? He knock the main Mayweather contender out of the number one spot. So now he’s in that spot!
From the comments of the fans above, what would be your conclusion of this fight?
What is next after this Pacquiao vs Marquez 5? Would there be Pacquiao vs Marquez 5?
Manny Pacquiao can’t still say that there would be 5th bout between them. It will depend on the situation as he said. The big question now, would Mayweather vs Pacquiao still possible to happen? Or Mayweather will use this as a reason why he will not fight Pacquiao anymore.
What is next for Pacquiao? Lots of fans saying especially Filipinos that it would be better for Pacquiao to retire from boxing and just be a congressman, in that way, he will served poor people of the Philippines, specifically, Saranggani Province. What do you think of this?
How about for Marquez? Will he retire or still fight for another division?
Some fans are saying that Pacquiao lose the fight ‘cuz there of some signs that changed him. Pacquiao was not wearing the rosary that he always bring every time he fight. As you noticed, Pacquiao changed the color of his short. Also, he didn’t make a sign of the cross before his fight with Marquez. Are these the reasons why he lose the fight against Marquez?
After the fight, he had an interview with one of the HBO reporter and he said that he did his best but in a game, there is always a winner and a loser. He humbly accept his defeat which makes the fans salute him.
