The bout ended in a controversial draw. This leaves many boxing fans around the world to clamor for a rematch. It did not happen immediately due to purse problem on Marquez side.

It took almost four years to make the rematch comes to fruition. On March 15, 2008 the rematch took place and was called “unfinished business” Pacquiao knocked Marquez down in round 3 but Marquez came back strong in the middle rounds. Marquez inflicted cuts on Manny’s face and able to snatched the few remaining rounds. However, the two judges scores the bout dead even. But the third judge scored the bout in favor of Pacquiao. It was a highly controversial fight of the year.
