Did anyone see Manny Pacquiao lose last night?
Well, he didn't he won a majority decision in his 3rd fight against Juan Manuel Marquez....but a lot of people thought he lost. I had Marquez up by a round but thought a draw would have been fair. And despite having 2 epic and close action filled fights in the past, one a draw and one a split decision win for Pacquaio, barely anyone gave Marquez a chance in this, a lot of people thought he;d end up getting KO'd, he's 38 fighting 3 weights higher than his prime weight class, in fact if you want to see how unfavoured Marquez was, read this: http://www.boxingsce...quez-iii--45953
And Pacquaio's promoter is already calling for a rematch as well as Pacquaio's coach Freddie Roach. Guess after that performance they'll think twice about putting him in against Mayweather 'cause Manny would get clowned all round, every round.
There's a video of the fight here: http://www.megavideo.com/?d=04SEXLAZ
Here's what some of the top boxers have put on their twitter in reaction to last night's fight:Marvin Hagler
