"Manny lost the fight because one judge erroneously scored it a 10-7 "
That is just the convenient pac-fanboy perspective of that fight.
1.) The judge who made the scoring error in round 1 also scored round 4 for Pacquiao, that round was CLEARLY won by Marquez. So if we are going to "tidy-up" some errors using he benefit of hindsight, then lets clear up that gaff at the same time.
2.) While we're at it, lets clear up another gaff..... Pacquiao should have been deducted a point for hitting Marquez while he was on the deck..... fighters have been disqualified for that
3.) Marquez won that fight by more than 1 point, so the scoring error did not affect the result
4.) That fight was even by about round 7, so the knockdown's did not determine who won that fight..... if Marquez lost the fight it was because he failed to close the show..... well, he did not fail to close the show, so looking back to the first round is irrelevant in a fight that was even just after the half-way point. A fight develops, so when it became even in terms of points, it is what occurred after that point in time that determined the outcome.
Either way, that was choke of the century. No points for figuring out who the better fighter was.
