TD: RATE THE MANNY VS MARQUEZ FIGHT 1-10.
I've got a solid 10
suspense: on the edge of my seat, nearly the whole fight.
Skills displayed: head hunting, crazy combos from Manny.
The Ko was horrible. I really felt bad for Pacquaio, now there really won't be a mayweather matchup.

I'll give it a 8.75
a 10 would have gone at least 9 rounds.
Pacquaio walked right into that punch and deserved to get KO'd
Marquez did the right thing by going after a Lunging Manny.
Not so sure why you think the KO was horrible. It was right on the $$$ and put Pacman out with no questions asked of a bad standing 8 count, bad ref stopage, or bad judges score.
As far as my score of 8.75 I think the whole fight could have been a bit better. I knew they would both go for it and was hoping for a few knockdowns. Pacmans knockdown of Marquez was week IMO. And like I said a few more rounds of that battle would have made it a 10

broken nose. (Marquez0
The pace of the fight cannot be justified in words. The end of the fight was a definite jaw opener. #noROMO
8.75. no. Goliath got slayed.

In your 1st arguement you said the KO was horrble and now in your 2nd, you are saying it was a jaw opener. So which is it?
By Giving the fight a 10 you are saying there is no way it could have gotten any better. Is that what you truly think, it in no way could have been a better fight?
3 knockdowns was good but wouldn't 4-5 and the fight goes into the late rounds, make for a better boxing war? Maybe late we see Marquez struggle a bit by getting knocked down again and he stuns the world with that great KO punch in the 10th. I can play that out in my head and it sounds to me like there is a chance the fight could have been better.
