Juan Manuel Marquez Gets a 6th Round TKO over Manny Pacquiao in Their 4th Fight

Saturday night, December 8, 2012 was the night Juan Manuel Marquez
had been dreaming of this past year. He achieved an unexpected knockout
against Manny Pacquiao just prior to the close of the 6th round. Both
fighters had been busily engaged up to that point with Pacquiao attaining
about 37% punching effectiveness to Marquez's 20%. Clearly, Pacquiao
was headed for another narrow win in this fight.

To most fans, Pacquiao was slightly ahead on the cards. Pacquiao won the
the first two rounds and the fifth. Marquez won the third, fourth and ended
the fight in the sixth. He left nothing to chance with the referee or the
judges.

Pacquiao was knocked down in the fight, as well as Marquez. The heaviest
blows seemed to be in the sixth and last round. Near the end of the sixth,
Marquez scored with a thunderous right which penetrated Pacquiao's
guard, sent him to the canvass and rendered him somewhat motionless
for about two minutes. The referee, Kenny Bayless, attended to Pacquiao
briefly and then raised the hand of Marquez.

The course of this fight was every trainer's nightmare. Pacquiao clearly
trained for this fight. He was ahead on the cards; however, the shear
number of punches thrown created more opportunities for Marquez
to penetrate his defenses and end the fight by TKO. By the sixth
round, Marquez was rapidly tiring for sure at the same time that
Pacquiao was looking for a quick KO.

Pacquiao left his guard open a number of times due to the rapidity
of the punches. Marquez realized that an opportunity was at hand
and he took aim once an opening presented itself just before the
close of the sixth round.

Marquez was under severe pressure to employ a "wait and see"
attitude in order to achieve a knockout. Clearly, the fight was
headed for another very close decision by the judges. Marquez
knew this, he threw slightly fewer punches and ended the fight
before the decision could be left in the hands of the judges.

This win for Marquez presents an opportunity to challenge
Timothy Bradley who won a very controversial decision against
Pacquiao in their last fight. A Marquez v. Bradley matchup would
be a good fight with Marquez favored due to his performance in
this fight.

At this point, Pacquiao needs to assess his current situation.
If he decides to stay in boxing, he needs to make some adjustments.
Pacquiao needs to throw slightly fewer punches and concentrate
more fully on his guard to prevent future knockouts or at least
reduce the likelihood of losing a close contest due to a knockout.

Pacquiao has another problem. He basically serves two masters.
i.e. boxing and politics   At some point, he needs to concentrate
his energies fully on one of these endeavors perhaps at the expense
of the other.

This one could have been a movie! Fighter about to lose his fourth match to someone he was had three losing close fights takes advantage of an opening and throws a knockout punch! Nice review!

I agree. I think that Canello's fight with Mayweather will be equally exciting.

I agree. Either fighter could have been knocked out. I fully expected a close 12th round decision. I think that Marquez just got tired of leaving things to the judges and took Pac out early.
