Team Sergio Martinez Believe Pacquiao is Finished

By Chris Robinson

On Saturday night, inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Juan Manuel Marquez produced what is likely the most emphatic victory of his career in knocking out Manny Pacquiao six rounds into their welterweight bout.

Meeting his rival for a fourth time, Marquez overcame a fifth round knockdown and several rocky moments before flooring Pacquiao for the ten count with a short right hand just as the sixth round was closing.

While the victory was surely a sight to behold, one man who claimed to have seen the writing on the wall ahead of time was Sampson Lewkowicz, known best for his work in advising the career of middleweight champion Sergio Martinez.

“I told you that he would win by knockout,” Lewkowicz would tell me at the post-fight press conference. “Nobody believed me, but it’s part of the game.”

As far back as Pacquiao’s June encounter with upstart Timothy Bradley, a fight in which Manny would lose a controversial split-decision, Lewkowicz had been telling me that the Filipino icon was nearing the end of his illustrious career.

In the wake of the brutal loss to Marquez, Lewkowicz again echoed those sentiments, this time with much more conviction.

“It’s definitely the end,” stated Lewkowicz.

Shortly after my discussion with Lewkowicz, I volleyed some questions in the direction of Martinez’s trainer Pablo Sarmiento, with Sampson serving as my translator.

“He came forward and he made the mistake of his life,” Sarmiento would tell me when asked of Pacquiao’s loss. “He will never be the same.”

Before out brief rap session closed, I was curious for Sarmiento’s thoughts on Marquez facing off with Bradley sometime next year, as it is a fight that is certainly a possibility.

“Bradley wins,” Sarmiento stated. “Because of the youth and quality of boxing.”

[QUOTE=WESS]Actually if Pac would have fought Floyd and not Clottey we wouldn’t have simple pactarts such as yourself who only now have come to the realization that Pac is simply not as good as he was made out to be. But yeah, keep trying with your little triangle thing. However there is no n...

[QUOTE=robert53]I hope Pac does retire; not because of the knockout, but the knockdown in rnd 3. The old Pac would never get caught with a punch like that. Pac will always be better than Floyd or JMM because at 5'6",67" reach , 144 lbs he destroyed Margo 150 lbs, 5'11" , 73" reach. We all know ...

I wonder why Sampson and Sarameinto's have a fixation with Pacquaio? It seems every chance they get they have something negative to say. I really don't get the hate and to be honest, Sergio's chin is very suspect and I wouldn't be shocked to see him KO'd when he steps up against a good puncher...

We'll have to see won't we. Roberto Duran recovered from a KO like this but he's one of the few. Roy as you know was never the same.

Baldomir had lost 9 fights b4 Floyd ,so he was the best WW ? Floyd ducked Margo turning down 8mil and retired instead of fighting him or Paul Williams. At lower weights you had Casamayor undefeated slick boxer instead of straight ahead mexicans who Floyd picked. Saying ur a champ at jr middleweig...
