Pacquiao vs Marquez 3
November 12, 2011
MGM Grand Arena
Las Vegas, Nevada
The much awaited third battle between the world's greatest fighters. Philippine’s Manny "The Pacman" Pacquiao and Mexico's Juan Manuel "El Dinamita" Marquez has finally ended at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada
Pacquiao and Marquez first fought in 2004, Pacquiao knocked Marquez down three times but the battle went the distance and a draw was declared. After 4 years, in 2008 they fought again where Pacquiao won in a split decision of his 3rd round knockdown against Marquez.
Today, after finishing the 12 rounds Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao won the battle against Juan Manuel "EL Dinamita" Marquez via majority decision, keeping his WBO Welterweight belt. One judge scored 114-114 while the other two were 115-113 and 116-112 respectively in favor of Pacquiao.
In my personal point of view, I was not convince of Manny's Pacquiao victory againts Marquez.
