That was a great fight!
I'll take Boxing over UFC any day.
I was looking for a link and just as I found your it was over.
Should have looked here sooner.
Wow.... didn't think I would see Pacman knocked out like that... I knew he was out when he hit the mat. That's what he gets for fighting Marquez a 4th time.
Someone will up it in full HD glory soon enough.
Looked like he was fast asleep BEFORE he hit the mat.
I thought Marquez won the last fight as well.
Wow what a fight!
Who'd have thought a day could be so eventful in sports without a major football game being played? Especially for stuff I'm interested in locally - first Tuberville leaves Texas Tech, then Michael Young gets traded, then the Josh Brent incident, Manziel winning the Heisman, and now this fight
man, pacquiao was way out of position on the knockout blow. Props to JMM for recognizing that.
When you get into brawls like that, stuff like that happens. It's actually surprising it hasn't happened more with Pac over his career. Bad tendency for when he gets hit with a shot, Manny wants to fire back with a big shot of his own, and gets into these type of exchanges.
Sad thing for Manny is I saw him easily controlling this fight. Was moving well, firing that jab like a rocket, and was busting JMM up. I even had Manny ahead in the 3rd until JMM landed that haymaker from nowhere. Was ready to win this round as well before he went nite-nite.
But again, when you get into brawling situations and are moving forward, this can and will happen, no matter who you are.
Incredibly exciting fight. Would not mind seeing it again.
Wow. Can't believe Pacquaio got knocked out like that.
