Anyway, isn't it ironic that this was Manny's best performance strategically so far only to get knocked out.

When he was staying on the outside, he was picking JMM apart. It seemed like Marquez wasn't doing a damn thing unless Pacquiao jumped in and stayed in for too long. His counter flurries weren't effective when Pac was keeping his hands up and throwing straight shots from the outside. It seemed like Pacquiao was capable of actually OUTBOXING him and BAM!!! (Jim Lampley) he gets knocked out cold. And it's because he jumped in recklessly.

Stupid Manny, stupid. I guess he just isn't capable of sticking to the game plan, if that was their game plan. I got a feeling that it was. Maybe they took something out of the Floyd-JMM fight and tried to emulate it. Certainly doing less (in terms of punch output/workrate) was more effective.
