I'm pretty sure it was directed at me.

LOL, they score on a per round basis. You win rounds, not how many punches you land.

Marquez has the cleaner shots however Manny kept stealing rounds at the last 30 seconds of each round. Had Marquez finished those rounds he would have probably won them. DeLa Hoya was the kind of stealing rounds and lots of fighters do it. Judges fall for it every time no matter what happened in the round.


Who said the score is based on punches landed? I said Pacquiao landed nearly 40 more punches and that's what got him the win when it came down to it because Marquez's corner was telling him he was winning the whole time and he wasn't doing anything out there. I don't see how anyone that watched can say that he was robbed when he was defensive a majority of the time, especially in the late rounds when he needed to make something happen.

Anyone claiming Pacquiao won should be ashamed of themselves..


Pacquiao landed nearly 40 more punches, when it goes all 12 rounds and the judges make their decision, that's what counts. There were no knock downs or point deductions, it was a straight up fight. Beristain shouldn't have been telling Marquez that he was winning the whole time and maybe you Marquez fans would've had a win.


Judges make their decision based on who won the round, not by how many punches are landed. One big shot could win the round for a fighter. Fighters steal rounds at the end all the time. To say that 40 more punches landed was the difference in the fight is insane. It was blatantly obvious that Manny was stealing rounds.

I had it a draw at least or another 1 point decision for pacquiao already knowing they would rob Marquez. Only way he could of won was a KO. No way Arum would let his biggest cash cow lose before possibly facing Mayweather.

You're just a disgruntled Marquez fan who is unwilling to admit that Marquez didn't do enough to win and that his corner made a poor decision in telling him he was winning the whole time. Whether you want to admit it or not, those 40 punches absolutely mattered because Marquez wasn't doing anything. I don't know how much clearer I can make that point. Marquez wasn't winning rounds outright and he wasn't stealing them either. How was he robbed?

It's easy to just come on here and say "Robbed", but actually explain it to me/us.

Your opinion that JMM was robbed doesn't make you any more of a "true boxing fan" than my opinion about Pacquiao getting the win. Obviously we're all true fans if we're in here debating it.

Marquez is an amazing fighter, he bulked up properly this time with conditioning coach and it showed. Amazing performance from a legend.These two styles are kryptonite to each other and Marquez just knows how to fight manny. This is not an excuse for Pac.. Pac's performance was disappointing to say the least simple.as a "boxing fan" I keep it simple and real. But the fight was amazing as a boxing fan enjoyed it so much awesome.Marquez was more intellegent and at times made Pacquiao look frustrated and angry and this is coming from someone who thought Pacquiao would KO Marquez in the first "four" rounds but that was not the case, Marquez was plain and simple the better fighter tonight and no I have nothing against pinoys nor Pacquiao I find the culture to be beautiful and Pacquiao to be a p4p great fighter but TONIGHT Marquez won this fight it was close but a clear UD for Marquez.

again....My opinion of course.

This.
In the second fight JMM landed more punches at a higher percentage and still lost so the whole "punches landed" argument would prove that jmm got robbed in the second fight if manny won this one.

It seemed to me that Jmm was the aggressor and landed cleaner punches. those counter punches were so beautiful too. I think he got robbed. He definitely exposed some weaknesses too.

I don't really like mayweather but tonight proved that manny couldn't really handle a 38 year old fighting above his comfortable weight level. on paper it looks like money would beat pacman so we really need that fight to happen so we could stop the speculations.

If anything it was more of a draw, but if you had to pick one winner? It had to be JMM. Whatever, Pac was exposed and he will be done for vs PBF. JMM is like a poor poor mans PBF at best and Pac couldn't even handle this dude.

Funny thing watching this fight, as soon as the bell rung JMM had his hands up and Pacman had his head down looking like he just lost and shit and rightly so. Funny how I haven't heard any interviews from Pac after the fight. He might just start acting like he doesn't speak english well again and skip it.

^Whoa whoa Whoa..... I'm in no means a pacman fan but let's break it down like this.....The 1st bout Pacman gets 3 knockdowns on JMM and being as naive as he was in that point in his career, he allows a skilled JMM to come back and make the fight a draw. If Pacman didn't get those 3 knockdowns, JMM would have have won the fight. 2nd match.... I believe punching stats were like 4-1 in JMM favor as far landed punches. But, as far as power punches and damage and knockdowns I think the Judges were sold on Pacman. Which if you watched that fight Pacman was going forward.... and that's what Judges want to see. Also Pacman did knock down JMM earlier in the fight. It wasn't helping that JMM was messed up in face either. Now to present day..... why did Pacman win.... hmmmm first and foremost a little star power, I'm not gonna lie. It's like when Kobe gets a call in his favor cause he's Kobe....But, really..... Well JMM was not moving forward enough where Manny was always going forward. JMM did not knock down Manny or damage him. I mean honestly the only times Manny looked like he was hurt was when he got headbutted by JMM (probably not intentional) and when he got hit by the heel of JMM's glove on the back of his head (No warning given by refs). The only scandalous thing that Manny did was when he spit out his mouth guard. If anyone watched the Ref prefight tell Manny and Freddie that a mouth guard lost is a warning for the first time and point deductions the second time. I kinda felt like Manny wanted to take breather not because he was fatigued but to stop JMM's momentum. Sneakkkky but that's all speculation on my part. Either way JMM fought a defensive fight with spectacular counter punching. Very meticulous on his part. But, what made this fight a loss for JMM and too close for comfort for Manny was their trainers. JMM corner should have never said he was winning whether he was or not at the time.....they should of stressed more Pressure.... instead they did the opposite and JMM backed off as if he was trying avoid throwing punches so that he wouldn't be prone to open Pacman shots (good analogy would be football running down the clock). And Pacman camp should not have told Pacman that JMM was done after the Mayweather bout (where he was very sluggish). And screw anyone that is saying that Pacman is the peoples champ and he took this fight knowing it would be his top contender......Pacman got a wakeup call at the cost of JMM and barely got by. If this was Money vs Pac TONIGHT..... No doubt Money would have won tonight. JMM better counter puncher than Money but Money is one of the best defensive boxers of all time. But, all in all this is a good thing for Pacman and a bad thing for Money. Money has not met anyone that gave him a run for his money (No pun intended). And until now Pacman has not either.... the only person I can remember in recent time that ROCKED Pacman was probably Cotto. So, I don't know why everyone is making such a big deal about how Pacman is human cause JMM Rocked him....... Wake up call for Pacman and he will be ready for Mayweather. Unless Mayweather is just that good and no human can touch him.... I think Pacman will be Mayweather's JMM come fighting time (Thanks to JMM whooping some sense into Pacman). Either way Pacman won this right due to reasons above.

Pac lost the fight IMO... I'll be the first to admit that I haven't seen all his fights, but after last nights performance I'm pretty sure he doesn't stand a chance against Mayweather. This guy Mayweather is too hard to hit you seen JMM's performance ? How he controlled the pace and countered (as a technical fighter) that's exactly what Mayweather is going to do. That's exactly what Mayweather is famous for, it might be boring but he'll win, he's not going in there and going blow for blow with Pac. Pac isn't going to comeback stronger I'm sure he came with his best but he had trouble against this style.

This match was all politics they know how big the Mayweather Pac fight is going to be so how could they allow Pac to lose before that match. The problem is their making Pac bigger than he is..... He may be a great fighter but this nigga is no Mayweather.

I think Pacquio won but he failed to accomplish his goal which was to put all doubts to rest with the fight. Everyone expected an easy match for manny saying he's a much more developed fighter than the last time they were in the ring but it looked like manny was off point a little. We expected a lot more from him and I think that's where the controversy lies.

Could we just all agree that it should have AT LEAST been a draw?

I'm more disappointed in the Velasquez/Dos Santos fight (Wanted Cain to win)

I knew some shit like this would happen in boxing. They're not going to let Pacman lose to an old Mexican guy, ruining their chances of setting him up with Money Mayweather.

youre a fool, it was a close fight, why would you simply hand him the title, based on that lame fight, more like a sparring round, if it wasnt a title fight, marquez wouldve won, but since it was a close fight, they wouldnt simply take the belt away from pacquiao. Win or lose everyone knows he's the best, he doesn't need a tko to prove it. He's at the highest point in his career with nowhere to go but down, of course he'd play it safe, he's pretty much won it all.

It was JMM 3RD CHANCE to KO pac, but he disappointed. Pac made him pay for it by punching him and so JMM was on his knees.

PAC was in trouble no doubt as usual JMM is a good counter puncher.
JMM has the pressure on him as he needed a KO to CONVINCINGLY win. Anything less than that would be disappointing.
Also JMM had the chance to KO PAC but he didn't. It was the same way with PAC but he held back somehow.

Even if you did say it was a tie, PAC would still win because he keeps the belt. If it was your 3rd chance to fight pac AND you have the pressure, it's on you to CONVINCE the world that you can beat the beast of the best, IF not you will not get the W.

IF YOU SAY JMM GOT ROBBED. NOTE: THIS IS 3RD CHANCE, IF HE HASN'T FIGURE OUT TO KO PAC, THEN HE HASN'T DONE SHIT WELL. THE PRESSURE WAS ON HIM TO KO PAC BUT HE DIDN'T EVEN THOUGH HE HAD THE CHANCE DURING THE FIGHT. SO PAC MADE HIM PAY, YOU CAN TELL JMM WAS ON HIS KNEES. PAC LANDED MORE PUNCH AS HE WAS THE AGGRESSOR WHICH JMM SHOULD'VE BEEN THE AGGRESSOR. AGAIN, THIS IS THEIR 3RD FIGHT, IT WOULD BE DISAPPOINTING FOR JMM IF HE WON BY SCORECARD OR EVEN A TIE.

Marquez didn't do anything to win rounds or steal rounds. Blame his corner if you want, they told him he was winning the whole time. Pacquiao won, and all the crying in the world, all the twitter posts, and all the conspiracy theories against Top Rank and the judges isn't going to change that. Knowing that their fights have always gone the distance and that both decisions have been controversial, BOTH fighters should've done more. Neither one of them put on a spectacular performance, but Pacquiao did more when it counted, and he won another close fight. I don't see how anyone can argue with that, Pacquiao was landing those extra punches and taking rounds off Marquez and Marquez wasn't responding, that's the only reason I ever mentioned the ~40 more punches landed by Pacquiao.

And why are people saying it was a pro marquez crowd? They were booing cus they thought he won, not because they were marquez homers.

How does a guy with a significantly smaller purse and 7-1 odds against him pull in more spectators than the biggest boxer in the sport?

It's still possible that a majority of the crowd was pro Marquez, boxing is huge in Mexico and he probably has a lot of fans. I know at the casino where I watched it the crowd was predominantly cheering for Marquez, but only one drunk girl was booing when it was over.
