Manny Pacquiao Wins over Marquez

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao snatched the WBC super featherweight belt after outpointing Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez via a controversial split at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada, Saturday (Sunday in Manila).

Two of the judges saw it 115-112, 114-113 for Pacquiao, while the third scored 115-112 for Marquez.

Aside from being crowned as WBC super featherweight champ, Pacquiao will be awarded with the Ring Magazine super featherweight belt.

The Filipino bomber had an awkward start during the opening rounds, absorbing a couple of straight right hands to the face. The second hit had him wobbling in Round 2.

Pacquiao, however, charged back in Round 3 by knocking down the Mexican champ with a left straight to the face. Marquez beat the count and survived the round.

The Mexican fought on, using his counterpunching skills to score a right hook and a right straight against Pacquiao during Round 5.

The fighters clashed heads in Round 7, opening a gash just above Pacquiao’s right eyelid. Marquez also suffered a nasty cut below the right eyebrow.

Both fighters were bleeding in the next two rounds, with referee Kenny Bayless sending the Mexican to the ring doctor twice.

Pacquiao upped the tempo in Round 10, wobbling Marquez with a hard left.

Marquez rallied during the last two rounds. He, however, failed to get the nod of the judges.

Prior the rematch, Pacquiao was coming of a win over Marco Antonio Berrera, whom he defeated via unanimous decision in October 2007.

Marquez, on the other hand, successfully defended his title against Rocky Juarez in Novermber 2007. He won the title from Barrera in March 2007.

The rematch between Pacquiao and Marquez took four years in the making since the two fought into a controversial draw in 2004.
