De La Hoya: This Shows How Superior Mayweather Is

By Chris LaBate

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya believes Juan Manuel Marquez defeated Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Pacquiao won a close twelve round majority decision to retain his WBO welterweight title. The scores were 114-114, 115-113 and 116-112. De La Hoya's company works with Pacquiao's main rival, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., who dominated Marquez for twelve rounds two years ago. 

Pacquiao had trouble with Marquez's defensive style and counter-punching ability, and Mayweather is a much better defensive, counter-punching boxer.

"I think this shows how superior Mayweather is. Pacquiao can not compete with a counter-puncher like Marquez. Juan has the patience to wait and capitalize on mistakes," De La Hoya noted.

[QUOTE=Johnwoo8686;11419157]Yes but in almost every scenario Manny fought the worst versions of those fighters. You have to take that into account. Hatton coming off his first loss and two lackluster performances, Mosley being a year older and also coming off…
