Pacquiao: I Got Careless, I Never Expected That Punch

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) knocked Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) out cold in the sixth round of their fourth and likely final battle. Their first fight, in 2004, ended in a twelve round draw, with Pacquiao winning close controversial decisions in 2008 and 2011.

"I was just starting to feel confident and then I got careless. I thought I was getting him in the last couple of rounds but I got hit by a strong punch," Pacquiao said. "I never expected that punch. I got hit by a punch I didn't see."

Pacquiao, who earned earned $26 million for the fight, was ahead 47-46 on all three scorecards after the fifth round.
