Heading over to my friend's house for this, for sure. Pacquiao was very impressive in his last fight and both of these guys are tremendous KO'ers for the lower weight class.

Holy crap this kid is good! Quick punches, and must be strong for his weight to do that.

Is that Leonardo DiCaprio sitting in the second row, with a blue shirt and black hat ?

Solid punches by both fighters at the end of the third.

I never would have believed this kid could have come back after that first round, but I think he's definitely starting to win some rounds.

I think that he's won almost every round since the first.

What a great fight! This is one fight where the judges can't ruin it for me- either guy could win and I would say "Yeah, I could see that". Although I think that first round will put Pacquiao over the top.

115-110 for Marquez? That's radiculos! I'm not going to argue with picking him the winner, as that's subjective, but 115-110?!?

I can actually see this fight being a draw. I didn't agree with Lederman at all. Hopefully they will do a rematch.

I had Pacquiao winning the first round 10-6, but losing all the other rounds except 2 and 12. Thus I had it scored.


Pacquiao 10-10-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-10
Marquez 6-9-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-9

Pacquiao 112
Marquez 114
