View Full Version : Is Pacquiao-Marquez the closest triology you've ever seen?

Despite how you've scored any of the fights, we all must admit after 36 rounds there have only been a handful of rounds which were definitive - marquez dominated a few, pacquiao dominated a few. But at at least 15 or so were EXTREMELY close rounds and very hard to score. I don't recall watching another trilogy that was so evenly matched over 36 rounds. Can you think of any?

This is probably the closest trilogy ever. Off hand, the only one I can think of that might rival it is McLarnin-Ross and that falls short in my opinion.

I don't think the first fight was evenly matched at all. It was only matched on points, Marquez dominated the fight.

Barrera vs Moralles was just as close to my mind. In 36 rounds of boxing it could have ended up 18 rounds a piece quite easily.

Frankly, the judges scored the first two fights incorrectly. Barrera probably should have been awarded the first match by at least a round, and Moralles should have probably got the nod in the second encounter by as much as two rounds. Their third fight correctly went to Barrera, but it was only by a whisker (One judge had it a draw.....the other two had it by one and two rounds to Barrera).

In the 36 rounds of boxing between Marquez and Pacquiao, I'd have Marquez winning more rounds than Pacquiao. The knockdowns in fights one and two brought the scores more even. Round for round and stylistically at least Marquez has Pacquiao's number.

I had Morales edging the 3rd fight.

No because I have marquez comfortably beat pac 2 out of 3 fights and the other a draw

Possibly, though I think that the Ali/Norton trilogy was pretty darn close, with some (I disagree) arguing that Kenny won all three.

Which would have made the judges potentially wrong in all three fights. The fights were that close.

I did have Barrera winning the third fight, he just seemed to want it more. But hell yea, it was close.

If you take all 39 rounds that Ali and Norton fought, there would be a fair argument that Norton won over half.

The first fight was a clear win for Norton. I only had Ali winning the second fight on his excellent final round......and realistically the third fight should have been a draw (although the rounds Norton won were more dominant).

I think Ali - Frazier were on of the closer triologies.

Really?

I felt he won the first one and there's a good argument he won the 3rd but I felt the second was clearly Morales' win.

I had pac winning all 3 fights.

the 3rd fight of course, he won big 116-112 on my card.


the 1st and 2nd fights he won by either 1 or 3 points in each of them

113-112 or 114-111 in the 1st

114-113 or 115-112 in the 2nd

out of generosity to jmm, i gave him the extra rounds in each to make it closer than reality.

in none of the 3 do i see jmm winning.

and the judges agree with me; after 3 fights and 9 judges the records read

6 judges for pac
2 for jmm
1 draw


6-2-1 doesnt sound that close to me, and considering that at best, i had jmm only within a point of pac then no, i dont think its that close of a trilogy.

I thought he won the first one and clearly won the third. The second one was really close, either couldve have gotten the decision. I am biased, though. I love love Barrera. :grill:

Im in agreement that Ali vs Norton And Barrera vs Morales were both closer trilogies than JMM vs Pac, Ive had Marquez being the superior fighter throughout though they have been close for sure
