Pacquiao: Marquez Hurt Me, But It's Very Clear I Won

Manny Pacquiao believes he was a clear winner in his eagerly-awaited third showdown with Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The Pacman was awarded a majority points verdict over his great Mexican rival.

But the verdict left Marquez disgusted and the packed house inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena erupting into a crescendo of boos.

Pacquiao, for long periods befuddled by Marquez and his textbook counter-attacking gameplan, finished beaten on the scorecards of many experts.

But when Michael Buffer went to the only three scorecards that mattered he prevailed 115-113 and 116-112 with the other dead level at 114-114.

Afterwards Pacquiao said - "It's very clear that I won the fight. Marquez is a good fighter and he's a good counter-puncher. He hurt me a couple of times but I was very careful because he was waiting for my advances to counter them."

Meanwhile Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum said another fight with Marquez - and not a megamatch with Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Jr - is now firmly on the agenda.

He said: "I'm bound and determined to have these two fight once and for all in a decisive fight. I had Manny winning this fight, some people - particularly Mexicans - had Marquez ahead.

"I'll speak to Manny and Juan Manuel, and maybe we'll do it again in May. It was great for boxing and if we do it again it's going to set all monetary records for pay-per-view."

When asked about his next fight Pacquiao said: "I don't know. It depends on my promoter Bob Arum. I'm going back to the Phillipines to do some work in the office.
