MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada- Renown trainer Freddie Roach admits that the latest edition of the Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez trilogy was another close fight that could have gone either way. He believes that the work done by his fighter in the last two rounds is what pulled the fight for the Filipino icon. Pacquiao won a close twelve round majoirty decision, with scores of 114-114, 116-112 and 115-113. 

"It was a very close fight. We were able to squeeze it out. I thought the fight was very close but Manny pulled out those last two rounds.  Marquez stayed in counter-punching mode and when the rounds are close I will go with the aggressor."

Roach went on to say that Marquez deserves another crack at the congressman.  The Southern California based trainer had recently predicted that the fight wouldn't go past the sixth round. At the post-fight press conference he admitted that all of the fights between the two will probably be very close.

"I think Marquez deserves a rematch. The fight was close. I think all of their fights will be close. Marquez fought very well." 

Meanwhile, Pacquiao revealed that his legs started cramping up in the fourth round and affected him during the fight.

"That was when it started [in the fourth]. I felt so bad that my balance was gone. Every time I threw a punch, I could feel it," Pacquaio said.

[QUOTE=gdub27]I felt like it was even going into the last round and JMM didn't do enough in the 12th to take it. This IS boxing and you have to beat the champion or house fighter convincingly to win on the cards. I thought a draw was coming. I wouldn't call it a robbery, the Lara/Williams fight ...

[QUOTE=superscience]WOW, this article pulled me out of my lurker status and actually post something. Leg cramps? This sh*t could'ave been a tiny BIT believable IF they actually fought at lightweight but c'mon Freddie...you guys waited til JMM was older, easier to get hit then pulled him into you...

All I'm going to say is Manny is a very tough fighter with tremendous hand speed. However if you think he's going to beat a great counter puncher w/ tremendous hand speed and 5 inch reach advantage your dreaming.

[QUOTE=BROOKLYN CESAR]Them saying they will give JMM a rematch proves they know they lost that fight!!! As for the the judges fixing the fight i dont think so but im sure you know most people tend to lean towards the fighter they like the most and Manny is the GOLDEN CHILD of the sport!!![/QUOTE...
