Manny Pacquiao: You Can't Always Win a One-Sided Fight

By Pawel Pronishev

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquaio is confident that he won a twelve round decision in his trilogy fight with Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Probably since the second fight with Marquez in 2008, Pacquiao has dominated the competition - including lopsided wins over Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Joshua Clottey, David Diaz, Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito.

The third bout with Marquez was another close fight. Pacquiao won a twelve round majority decision, scores of 114-114, 116-112 and 115-113. There are many people who scored the fight in favor of Marquez. Because of his recent string of wins, Pacquiao told Filipino reporters that everyone expects one-sided performances in every fight but boxing doesn't work like that.

"I believed that before the bout was over, I was ahead and winning. [But] I was not convinced in my performance and I wasn’t able to deliver what the people expected of me. That’s boxing. There are instances where you don’t win through a one-sided fight. You can’t always beat your opponent in a lopsided way. They also have fists. It so happened that my fight was a close fight," Pacquiao said.
