As Manny Pacquiaowas transported to a hospital and Juan Manuel Marquez’s nose was swollen to the size of half a cantaloupe, boxing’s power players projected a fifth meeting between the pair during the post-fight news conference late Saturday. Marquez rallied from a fifth-round knockdown and an extended pounding afterward that left him again trailing on all three scorecards to produce a devastating knockout of Pacquiao in the final second of the sixth round on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
I thought this was the fight that was billed to end it all?! The knockout was pretty vicious though (included in the Highlight Reel). Despite no college football, we still had the NFL, some futbol, and a major award.
