MGM Grand, Las Vegas – The immediate prospect of a long awaited mega-fight between American Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao seemed to recede after the Filipino's controversial majority decision over Juan Manuel Marquez. The scores were 114-114, 115-113 and 116-112.

Pacquiao had been widely expected to win his third fight against the Mexican in convincing style but the nail-biting outcome, ruled by one of the three judges as a draw, persuaded his trainer to consider a fourth meeting between the fighters. Freddie Roach, a shrewd tactician who has been uncannily accurate with his fight predictions, had forecast a Pacquiao victory well inside the distance on Saturday and he was amazed to be so far off the mark.

“I was very surprised,” Pacquiao's trainer said. “I had predicted my fighter would win in six rounds and I was way off. It was a very competitive fight and it could have gone either way. I thought Manny edged it out in the last two rounds. It was the kind of fight I don't want to do again but I think we have to. He has given us problems three times now and he is very good at what he does. I do think he deserves a re-match first.”

This goes to show how good Marquez really is. I was hoping he would win, just to mess up the $50 million (each) purse of Pac & Floyd Jr.. Why give Floyd all this money, if all he is going to do is burn it in public. Marquez vs Bradley sounds good.

you're damn right, you're way way off. And your fighter, pacroid, was exposed again as the most overrated one-dimensional fighter in the universe. I was having a good time watching the fight, just laughing at the 'skills' Pac has, which is none! Oh, sorry pactards, he does have a powerful left, a...

[QUOTE=hitking]I would like to commend the Pactards that are still standing by your man, hangin' in there trying to fight the good fight. You got a lot more heart than loyality than the majority of you bandwagon buddies that hoped off that train about midway through that little boxing match last...
