Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez III
I think this fight was made a little too late. There's a good chance it'll be competitive for the first couple rounds, but from that point on it's gonna be dominated by Pac. 8th round stoppage by Manny. Thoughts?

That was a good fight, not as action packed as most but the tension was high. Marquez was impressive!!! Seriously I would've scored it another draw.

Styles makes fights and you could totally see that Marquez's style just frustrates the crap out of Pacquiao.

Everybody is saying that Marquez got absolutely robbed, still haven't watched the fight though.

Well I would say he did get robbed of a draw.... robbed of a win? i'm not too sure about that. Marquez did great, but he allowed Manny to dictate the tempo of the fight and he was backing up most of the time. Manny threw more shots AND landed more shots but Marquez landed some cleaner and effective punches so it's a tough call.

I still see it as a draw since there wasn't really a clear winner to me. I think they might have to duke it out again... if they do then it should be ASAP. Don't want Marquez to get older and lose simply due to age.

While I was scoring it, I scored the same as Ledderman, except one round I gave to Marquez when he scored Pac and had another round the same but vice versa. Pac won it, but that's not to say that Pac is the superior fighter of the two. They're basically neck and neck and the only reason Pac wins the fights is because he throws a lot more punches.

I was reluctant to see this fight because I thought Pac would win easily. After that, there's only 2 fights I want to see for Pac's next fight, Mayweather or a Marquez rematch.

I just watched the fight and thought Marquez won, it was relatively close though. The fight was at the very least a tie. My feed was the Primetime commentary, but I heard that the HBO commentary was beyond bias towards Pacman.

Although Pacman was the agressor, he missed a lot. Marquez landed the cleaner punches and was more accurate than Pacman.

Pro boxers reaction to this fight:

Marvin Hagler "Disgusting result! #ROBBERY!" Twitter

Bernard Hopkins "FloydMayweather blow thru MannyPacquiao easy!!" Twitter

OscarDeLaHoya "I'm still sitting on my couch in disbelief. Paquiao cannot compete with a counter puncher like Marquez. Juan has the Patience to wait and capitalize on mistakes. I think this shows how superior mayweather is." Twitter

Andre Dirrell "Ok after this fight, I don't know what 2 think! Did JMM just have a good night, or did Pacman put on a great possum show 2 get MW! U TELL ME. GO GET YO GLOVES ON AND COME WHOOP THIS DUDE!!!! PACMAN CAN'T SEE YOU!!!" Twitter

ZAB JUDAH "Robbery!!!!" Twitter

Steve Cunningham "All pro fighters I know ,guys which know what to look 4 in a fight had jmm winning. It's not just entertainment to us its a #lifestyle#" Twitter

Anthonydirrell "If y'all think that they was bout to lose out on 150 million y'all crazy"

Matthew Macklin "It was close but still wrong...and for it to happen THREE times!!!!!?? WTF!!!" Twitter

Andre S.O.G. Ward "Well, I was wrong. Marquez is boxing a masterful fight. Marquez won this fight, period!!" Twitter

Terry Norris "Wow! Thought PAC man would win. But clearly Marquez was robbed again. PAC did NOT win this fight."

Andre Berto "Smh WOW..... Come on u know Top Rank was gonna let Marquez **** the money up!!! Great fight though"

Chris Arreola "Marquez won, true champ. Let's see Mayweather-Pacquiao. ****."

Matthew Macklin "It was close but still wrong...and for it to happen THREE times!!!!!?? WTF!!!" Twitter

Andre S.O.G. Ward "Well, I was wrong. Marquez is boxing a masterful fight. Marquez won this fight, period!!" Twitter

OmarHenry "Wow I just watched Pacquiao get beat and Marquez get robbed!!!! and yes I was one of the people in the crowd booing the robbery!!!!"

Ishe Smith "That's why I took a break, the scoring and ****ed up judging has ruined the sport."

Both Primetime commentators thought JMM won too.

Pac Man is slow on his feet :police:
