Pacquiao Marquez, Manny Pacquiao escaped Saturday night with a win at the MGM Grand arena in a decision that left Juan Manuel M?rquez fuming once again.
The Filipino sensation was taken to the limit before winning a majority decision that infuriated M?rquez and most of the sellout crowd. While close, the win helped Pacquiao continue a remarkable run that has made him the most exciting fighter in the sport.
This was the second robbery and this one was the worst. We won with clearer punches.
- Juan Manuel M?rquez
In a bruising battle against a counterpuncher who was both accurate and fast, Pacquiao needed the final round on two scorecards to pull out the win. He got it, even though a third judge scored the round in favor of M?rquez.
As boos — and cans and bottles — rang down on the ring, Pacquiao celebrated another victory and another huge payday.
“My fans are very happy because they thought I won,” Pacquiao said.
He did, but on the narrowest margin. That, perhaps, was to be expected considering the previous 24 rounds the two had fought were just as close.
Pacquiao won on two scorecards, while the third ringside judge had it a draw. It was a narrow escape for the Filipino congressman, who took as much punishment as he got over 12 rounds, and M?rquez was so upset he stormed from the ring.
“This was the second robbery and this one was the worst,” M?rquez said. “We won with clearer punches.”
