Manny Pacquiao is not a man to go down easily, but nobody would have remained upright had they been on the end of the crushing right-hand that floored the Filipino last night.
Pacquiao went toe to toe with Marquez for the fourth time last night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, having previously never lost to his Mexican opponent.
Marquez grounded Pacquiao in the sixth round with a crushing right hander that knocked the wind completely out of the 34-year old, after the pair had fought out five excellent and evenly contested rounds before that.
Even before the night was out, there was a talk of a fifth fight between them and if it does happen and if it is anything like what’s gone before then fight fans are in for a treat.
For now, Marquez will be basking in the satisfaction of last night’s victory and to relive the spectacular way in which he achieved it, check out the footage of the final round in the video above.
