Pacquiao Marquez III: Who do you think won?

20111113-003624.jpg
Well there you have it. Manny Pacquiao has defeated Juan Manuel Marquez in an epic battle that was taken to the full limits.

Many expected Pacquiao to go for an early (6th round) knockout, but it was far from that. This bout was remiscent of the first two fights.

I’m a Pacquiao fan but I felt this fight was a lot closer in terms if score. Marquez put up a great fight! Fights usually favor the champion so I felt if Marquez wanted this victory, he woul of had to knock Pacquiao down just once. He played more of a counter punch contest. If he was able to raise his level of aggressiveness then we might have seen a different outcome.

I feel money and the world of boxing politics plays a role with this outcome. Who would of wanted to see a Pacquiao vs Marquez 4? Not I and many other boxing fans.

Now this only sets up what all boxing fans have anticipated. A Pacquiao Mayweather match that is supposedly in the works for May of 2012.

Only time will tell how this pans out. As much as I hate Mayweather, I am worried for Pacquiao judging by the way he performed earlier tonight.

If all things go as planned, 2012 will be interesting in the world of boxing.
