Former champion Jorge Arce, who fights Angky Angkotta for the vacant WBO bantamweight title this Saturday night in Mexico, has no idea what Juan Manuel Marquez would have to do to defeat Manny Pacquiao. Arce did not agree with the three official judges who scored a twelve round majority win in favor of Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Marquez fought Pacquiao to a draw in 2004 and lost a controversial twelve round split decision in 2008.
"I'm disappointed after the fight between Marquez and Pacquiao. It was really an outright robbery. I don't know what Marquez has to do to win in Las Vegas. Maybe murder. But even if he kills [Pacquiao], he would still lose or get a draw. I am disappointed in the judges. Márquez should sue them for being robbed on several occasions," Arce said.
"This tarnishes boxing. It hurts the credibility of boxing. No need to kill or murder with a gun, because [the judges] kill with such decisions. If Pacquiao were honest, he would take the belt and give it to Juan Manuel. After the fight was over, Marquez was celebrating but Pacquiao was sad, and Roach was sad because he predicted a knockout in six rounds and nothing happened."
