Interm-WBO junior welterweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez was in Las Vegas for Saturday evening's pay-per-view clash between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. Marquez saw his hopes for a fourth fight against Pacquiao go up in smoke, for the time being, after Bradley won a controversial split decision.
The four division champion said that Pacquiao easily won the fight and he was surprised by the scores.
"I didn't think the fight was that close. I think Pacquiao won by at least five points," said Marquez to BoxingScene.com.
The fighter of Mexican descent has been on the short end of the stick when it comes to his three close fights against Pacquiao. Marquez insisted that he didn't find any pleasure in Pacquiao's controversial loss.
"No it doesn't make me happy that he lost that way but now he knows how I felt this past November," Marquez told BoxingScene.
