Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez 2 Fight Video

MATCHUP:

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Márquez

EVENT:

Marquez vs Pacquiao II: Unfinished Business

DATE:

March 15, 2008

VENUE:

Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, United States

FIGHT DETAILS:

This is a rematch of their first bout held last May 8, 2004 which was declared as a draw.

This time, Juan Manuel Márquez defends his WBC Super Featherweight title. The vacant The Ring Junior Lightweight World title was also at stake.

FIGHT RESULT:

Pacquiao won via split decision (115–112 for Pacquiao, 115–112 for Márquez, and 114–113 for Pacquiao).

NOTES:

The fight was a close hard fought battle, during which both fighters received cuts. Throughout the fight Márquez landed the most punches at a higher percentage; however, the decisive factor proved to be a third-round knockdown, wherein Márquez was floored by a Pacquiao left hook.

Compubox scoring had Juan Manuel Márquez landing 42/201 (21%) more jabs to Pacquiao’s 43/314 (14%) jabs, it also had Márquez scoring 130/310 (42%) more power punches to Pacquiao’s 114/305 (37%) power punches.

In the post-fight news conference, Márquez’s camp called for an immediate rematch. In addition, Richard Schaefer, Golden Boy Promotions CEO, offered a $6 million guarantee to Pacquiao for a rematch. However, Pacquiao ruled out a third clash with Márquez, saying, “I don’t think so. This business is over.” The reason that Pacquiao did not want a rematch was because he intended to move up to the lightweight division to challenge David Díaz, the reigning WBC Lightweight World Champion at that time.

With the victory, Pacquiao won the WBC Super Featherweight and The Ring Junior Lightweight World Titles (as well as the lineal junior lightweight title), making him the first Filipino and Asian to become a four-division world champion, a fighter who won world titles in four different weight divisions.
