Review: 2012-12-08, with two knockdowns, an astonishing fifth round (candidate for Round of the Year) and probably the knockout of the year, the fourth fight between Pacquiao and Marquez gets five stars as one of the most exciting fights of 2012. Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2 with 38 victories coming by way of knockout) entered as the No.2 welterweight in the world while Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1 with 39 victories coming by way of knockout) entered as the No.1 light welterweight. Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 is valid for a special WBO belt “Fighter of the Decade”. Watch the video!

Review: 2011-11-12, the third fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez was not a war as their second fight and it had not “unexpected moments” as in their first bout but it was just a good one and it was not as spectacular as we expected (or like other boxing fights of 2011 such as Wolak vs Rodriguez, Salido vs Juanma Lopez or Guerrero vs Katsidis), therefore we can’t give it more than three stars. Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2) entered as the No.1 welterweight in the world while Juan Manuel Marquez (53-5-1) entered as the No.1 lightweight. Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 was valid for the WBO welterweight title. Watch the video!
Review: 2004-05-08, Manny Pacquiao came from the first fight against Barrera (one of the Fights of the Year 2003) and tried to win his first title in the featherweight division since Juan Manuel Marquez was the reigning champion of the WBA and IBF featherweight titles. In the first round Manny Pacquiao surprised Marquez knocking down him three times, all thought the match was over but instead the fight ended after twelve rounds with a controversial draw (Harold Lederman scored the fight 115-110 for the Filipino). Manny Pacquiao entered the fight with a record of 38-2-1 while Juan Manuel Marquez had a record of 42-2-0. Watch the video!
