Announcer: THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESENTATION OF HBO SPORTS.

HELLO. I'M JIM LAMPLEY.
ON DECEMBER 8 OF THIS YEAR,
HBO PAY-PER-VIEW WILL
TAKE YOU LIVE TO LAS VEGAS
FOR THE HISTORIC
FOURTH MEETING BETWEEN
TWO OF THE GREATEST LIVING FIGHTERS IN BOXING--
JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ OF MEXICO AND HIS NEMESIS, MANNY PACQUIAO
OF THE PHILIPPINES.
TO GET YOU READY FOR THAT, WE'RE LOOKING BACK
AT THE FIRST 3 FIGHTS THAT TOOK PLACE
BETWEEN THESE TWO FIGHTERS TO SET UP
THAT HISTORIC FOURTH MEETING.
THE FIRST FIGHT WAS A DRAW, WHICH TOOK PLACE IN LAS VEGAS
IN 2004.
NEARLY 4 YEARS PASSED BEFORE THEY MET AGAIN:
MARCH 15 OF 2008.
AS THEY WENT INTO THE SECOND FIGHT, THE KEY SUBTEXT WAS
THAT PACQUIAO WOULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN A DRAW IN THE FIRST FIGHT
HAD HE NOT--KNOCKED MARQUEZ DOWN 3 TIMES IN THE FIRST ROUND.
THE KNOCKDOWNS WERE THE FULCRUM ON WHICH PACQUIAO AVOIDED
A DEFEAT IN FIGHT NUMBER ONE.
NOW LET'S GET READY TO SEE FIGHT NUMBER TWO.
ONCE AGAIN, IT WAS MARCH OF 2008.
HERE'S HOW I CALLED IT FROM RINGSIDE
WITH LARRY MERCHANT AND EMANUEL STEWARD.
Bayliss: OK, TRUNKS ARE A LITTLE HIGH HERE,
SO PUNCHES IN THIS AREA WILL BE CONSIDERED A GOOD PUNCH.
PUNCHES HERE WILL BE OK.
NOW, GENTLEMEN, WE WENT OVER THE RULES IN THE DRESSING ROOM.
I WANT TO CAUTION YOU TO KEEP THE FIGHT CLEAN AT ALL TIMES,
PROTECT YOURSELF AT ALL TIMES,
AND WHAT I SAY YOU MUST OBEY.
TOUCH UP. GET TO IT.
BUENA SUERTE.
Larry Merchant: IT SEEMS THAT BOTH FIGHTERS FOR 4 YEARS
HAVE BEEN LEADING UP TO THIS ONE NIGHT, AND HERE IT IS.
[BELL RINGS]
[CROWD MEMBERS CHANTING "MANNY" AND "MARQUEZ"]
Lampley: IS IT ROUND 13
OF THE FIRST FIGHT?
IN WHICH CASE MARQUEZ'S
TACTICAL SKILLS COULD BE THE DIFFERENCE.
OR IS IT A DIFFERENT FIGHT
BECAUSE MANNY PACQUIAO
HAS PROGRESSED SO MUCH
AS A BOXER
AND HAS SO DEVELOPED
HIS RIGHT HAND
IN THE 4 YEARS SINCE
THE FIRST FIGHT?
THERE'S THE STRAIGHT
LEFT HAND FROM PACQUIAO
TO START THE VIOLENCE.
Merchant: AND IT WAS
FOLLOWED BY A QUICK LITTLE RIGHT HAND.
Emanuel Steward:
BUT BEFORE PACQUIAO
THROWS
HIS LEFT HAND,
MOST OF THE TIME--
LOOK, HE DROPS IT.
OR SPINS--
WINDS UP ON IT.
SO IT'S INTERESTING
HOW HE'S BEEN ABLE TO HIT SOMEBODY--
SO MANY PEOPLE
WITH IT WHEN YOU--
IT'S NOT REALLY
A DIRECT SHORT PUNCH,
BUT HE JUST THROWS
SO MANY PUNCHES.
WELL, AND HE IS
SO FAST.
YOU KNOW, POWER IS
A FUNCTION OF STRENGTH AND SPEED,
AND THERE'S NO
FASTER POWER PUNCH
THAN
MANNY PACQUIAO'S LEFT HAND.
BUT YOU SAID
SOMETHING THE LAST FIGHT,
WHEN HE FOUGHT
BARRERA--IT WAS INTERESTING THAT
MANNY HURTS PEOPLE
WITH PUNCHES THAT ARE GRAZING PUNCHES.
A LOT OF TIMES,
HE DON'T EVEN LAND
DIRECTLY
ON THE CHIN,
WHICH MEANS
HE MUST BE
WHAT WE CALL
IN THE BUSINESS HEAVY HANDED.
EVEN GRAZING
PUNCHES,
HE SCORES
KNOCKDOWNS WITH OFTENTIMES.
MARQUEZ IS BEING
CAREFUL EARLY ON TO CONTROL DISTANCE.
STAYING AT RANGE
WHERE PACQUIAO HAS TO COME FORWARD
TO TRY TO FIND HIM,
MOVING BACK
AND THEN STEPPING FORWARD TO FIRE THAT RIGHT HAND.
JUST AS WAS THE CASE
IN THE EARLY STAGES OF THE FIRST FIGHT,
IT'S MANNY PACQUIAO'S
LEFT HAND AGAINST
JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ'S
STRAIGHT RIGHT.
AND YOU SEE WHAT
MARQUEZ IS DOING.
HE'S TRYING TO
WAIT TILL AFTER--
HARD RIGHT HAND
BY MARQUEZ!
PACQUIAO LANDS...
'CAUSE PACQUIAO
GETS OUT OF POSITION
WHEN HE THROWS
HIS LEFT HAND.
THE TIMING OF THE ACTION
SO FAR BELONGS TO MARQUEZ.
HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO BLUNT
PACQUIAO WITH HIS FEET
AS MUCH AS WITH HIS HANDS.
THIS IS MUCH MORE
OF A CHESS MATCH
THAN WHAT TOOK PLACE
IN THE FIRST ROUND
ON MAY 8, 2004.
HARD LEFT HAND
BY PACQUIAO.
GOOD BODY SHOT BY MARQUEZ
DRIVES PACQUIAO BACK.
MARQUEZ TRYING TO LAND
A JAB.
FIRST TIME HE'S REALLY
UNFURLED THAT.
PACQUIAO REACHING
WITH HIS JAB.
10 SECONDS TO GO
IN THE ROUND.
ANY CLOSING STATEMENTS?
AN ATTEMPTED BODY SHOT BY MARQUEZ.
[BELL RINGS]
AND HE MISSES WITH THE RIGHT HAND TO CLOSE OUT THE ACTION.
OK...
GOOD ROUND.
ALL RIGHT, MANNY.
NOW, WE'RE...
YOU'RE GONNA BACK
THIS GUY UP WITH THAT DOUBLE JAB
A LITTLE BIT
MORE FOR ME, OK? ALL RIGHT?
[MARQUEZ AND HANDLERS
SPEAKING SPANISH]
Translator: REAL GOOD, REAL GOOD.
USE THE COUNTERPUNCHES.
THE RIGHT STRAIGHT OR THE RIGHT HOOK.
THE RIGHT. WITH YOUR RIGHT.
[WHISTLE BLOWS]
Steward: HERE YOU SEE WHAT MAY HAVE BEEN
THE MOST SIGNIFICANT PUNCH OF THE WHOLE ROUND--
IN THE ENTIRE ROUND.
IT WAS A STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND
RIGHT ON THE CHIN DIRECTLY FROM MARQUEZ.
[BELL RINGS]
Lampley: COMPUBOX NUMBERS ON
ROUND 1 BELONG TO PACQUIAO,
LANDING 12 OUT OF 49,
MARQUEZ, 6 OUT OF 43.
PACQUIAO DID LAND A COUPLE
OF STIFF LEFT HANDS.
WELL, PACQUIAO HAS
A REALLY GOOD
UPPER BODY RHYTHM THE WAY HE
MOVES IN AND
OUT. HIS BODY'S ALWAYS GUARDING,
GOING LEFT OR
RIGHT, WHICH MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT
TO LAND PUNCHES
ON HIM ALSO.
Merchant: PACQUIAO
NOW LOOKS LIKE
HE WANTS
TO MAKE MARQUEZ
FIGHT HIM
MORE THAN BOX HIM.
PACQUIAO
WAS SENSATIONAL IN 2006
WITH 3 STRAIGHT VICTORIES,
INCLUDING HIS 2 KNOCKOUTS
OF ERIK MORALES.
HE WAS QUITE SUCCESSFUL
LAST YEAR AS WELL
WITH A KNOCKOUT
OF JORGE SOLIS
AND A DECISION OVER
MARCO ANTONIO BARRERA.
BUT SOME RINGSIDERS
SENSED THAT HE WASN'T AS VIOLENT,
WASN'T AS DESTRUCTIVE AS
HE HAD BEEN IN THE PAST.
IN RESPONSE TO THAT,
PACQUIAO SAYS HE'S TRAINED
HARDER FOR THIS FIGHT,
WAS MORE FOCUSED
FOR THIS FIGHT,
IS READY TO BE THE OLD
MANNY PACQUIAO AGAIN.
THE BODY LOOKS TERRIFIC.
A REACHING LEFT HAND
FOR MARQUEZ.
AS I WATCH
WHEN PACQUIAO GETS OUT OF POSITION
WHEN HE
THROWS HIS LEFT,
HE DOESN'T GET
AS FAR OUT OF POSITION
AS HE USED TO BE YEARS BACK.
HE MAY THROW HIS LEFT HAND
AND GET OUT OF POSITION,
BUT HE TRIES TO GET BACK
RIGHT AWAY.
BODY SHOT BY MARQUEZ.
PACQUIAO LANDS
HIS LEFT HAND.
MARQUEZ MOMENTARILY DIPPED.
DID HE DIP
OR WAS HIS LEGS BUCKLED?
YOU KNOW, WE'VE
TALKED ABOUT
THE IMPORTANCE
OF THIS FIGHT
FOR MARQUEZ.
IT'S ALSO IMPORTANT
FOR PACQUIAO.
HE'S ESTABLISHED
HIS GREATNESS
IN THE LOWER
WEIGHT DIVISIONS.
THIS IS AN
OPPORTUNITY FOR HIM
TO VAULT
INTO THE HIGHER WEIGHT CLASSES
AND MAKE EVEN MORE
OF HIMSELF.
MARQUEZ HAS LANDED
2 LEAD LEFT HOOKS IN THIS ROUND.
NOT HARD SHOTS, BUT HE'S
GETTING LEATHER THERE.
THAT'S QUITE UNUSUAL
AGAINST THE SOUTHPAW STANCE.
VERY UNUSUAL.
HE'S REALLY SETTING THE COUNTERPUNCH,
PACQUIAO, THAT'S WHAT
HE'S TRYING TO DO.
BUT PACQUIAO IS
NOT GETTING IT OUT OF POSITION AS MUCH
AS HE USED TO.
BUT MARQUEZ IS SETTING--
EVERY TIME HE COMES IN,
HE'S TRYING TO PUNCH
AND COME BACK.
ANOTHER HARD LEFT HAND
FOR MANNY.
MANNY'S GOT A HARD RHYTHM.
YOU REALLY CAN'T TIME
HIS MOVEMENT
AS EASY AS IT USED TO BE.
HE'S ALWAYS GOT HIS
IN AND OUT, DOESN'T HE?
EVEN THERE, HE DIDN'T GET
HIT WITH TOO MANY PUNCHES.
THE RIGHT HAND
BY PACQUIAO GOT THROUGH,
BUT MARQUEZ
HAS BEEN MORE EFFECTIVE
IN THIS
EXCHANGE.
UPPERCUT BY MARQUEZ.
HUGE RIGHT HOOK
BUCKLED PACQUIAO!
[BELL RINGS]
BIG PUNCH FOR MARQUEZ TO PUNCTUATE THE SECOND ROUND.
Man:
GOOD ROUND. OK?
MANNY, DRINK.
HE CAN'T HANDLE YOUR SPEED.
YOU GOT TO USE THE DOUBLE JAB
AND PUT THAT
LEFT HAND RIGHT BEHIND IT, OK?
THAT WAS GOOD...
Translator:
LIVELY, LIVELY.
WHEN HE THROWS THAT
STRAIGHT PUNCH TO THE BODY,
COME OVER IT
WITH THE COUNTERPUNCH.
VERY NICE, VERY NICE.
LIVELY, LIVELY 'CAUSE HE'S TOUCHING YOUR BODY.
Steward: HERE YOU SEE MARQUEZ WORKING
HIS COUNTERPUNCHES ONCE AGAIN
WHEN PACQUIAO GOT OUT OF POSITION AGAIN,
COMING IN, THROWING A LEFT HAND.
MARQUEZ TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IT,
AND I'M QUITE SURE THAT'S WHAT HE'S BEEN WORKING ON IN TRAINING
OVER AND OVER AND OVER,
COUNTERPUNCHING PACQUIAO.
Lampley: COMPUBOX NUMBERS
ALREADY INTERESTING.
PACQUIAO WOULD SEEM TO HAVE
DOUBLED MARQUEZ'S CONNECTS
IN THE FIRST ROUND,
MARQUEZ DOUBLED
PACQUIAO'S CONNECTS IN THE SECOND ROUND,
18-9.
HAROLD LEDERMAN GAVE
THE FIRST TO PACQUIAO,
AND THE SECOND TO MARQUEZ.
YOU KNOW, LOOKING
AT MARQUEZ'S EYES,
I SEE THE SAME
DETERMINATION THAT I SAW
IN NATE CAMPBELL'S
EYES LAST WEEK.
REGARDLESS OF WHAT
THE OUTCOME IS GONNA BE,
'CAUSE HE'S A VERY
FIERCELY DETERMINED MAN IN THIS FIGHT HERE.
WELL, IN CASE
YOU MISSED IT,
36-YEAR-OLD NATE CAMPBELL
PRODUCED THE EFFORT
OF A LIFETIME
IN BEATING JUAN "BABY BULL"
DIAZ 12 YEARS HIS JUNIOR
IN CANCUN, MEXICO,
LAST WEEK.
GREAT LEFT HAND
FOR PACQUIAO.
MARQUEZ IS MOVING BACK WHEN
MANNY'S LANDS THE LEFTS NOW.
Merchant: MARQUEZ IS
JUST SIMPLY TRYING
TO EXPLOIT
ANY MISTAKES--
ABSOLUTELY, LARRY.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
AND THE STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND
LANDS RIGHT DOWN THE PIPE
FOR MARQUEZ.
MANNY WALKED INTO IT.
HE'S TRYING TO LIVE
OFF THE AGGRESSION OF PACQUIAO,
AND CHALLENGES
PACQUIAO
TO MAKE HIM REGRET
THAT AGGRESSION.
AND AS THE FIGHT GOES ON,
I SEE PACQUIAO BECOMING
TENTATIVE HIMSELF NOW.
HE'S A LITTLE TENTATIVE.
HE'S NOT GOING IN
AND BEING AGGRESSIVE
BECAUSE HE'S BEEN
COUNTERPUNCHED 2 OR 3 TIMES NOW.
YES, HIS TIMING
HASN'T BEEN AS GOOD AS JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ'.
NO. HIS TIMING. AND IT
SEEMS LIKE HIS CONFIDENCE
IS NOT AS GOOD, NEITHER,
AS IT WAS.
AND MARQUEZ IS
EFFECTIVELY USING HIS FEET
TO GET IN AND OUT.
YEAH, MARQUEZ IS
FIGHTING VERY, VERY SMART,
VERY CONFIDENT,
AND I THINK THAT AT THIS STAGE RIGHT NOW,
PACQUIAO IS FEELING
A LITTLE TOO LEARY OF COMING IN NOW.
THEY GO HEAD-TO-HEAD
FOR A MOMENT.
KENNY BAYLISS CHECKS
BOTH FIGHTERS.
BACK TO ROUND 3 ACTION.
NEITHER MAN HAS LANDED
ANYTHING REALLY BIG TO THE BODY.
MARQUEZ HAS BEEN MORE
FREQUENT IN GOING THERE.
THE STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND
IS THE BREAD AND BUTTER FOR MARQUEZ.
PACQUIAO COMES BACK
WITH A STRAIGHT LEFT.
MANNY TRIES TO TEE OFF
WITH A LEFT
AND GETS IT IN THERE.
THIS IS A LATE-ROUND
RALLY FOR PACQUIAO.
BUT THIS CAN CHANGE
BACK AND FORTH IN THIS FIGHT HERE.
DOWN GOES MARQUEZ ON
A STRAIGHT LEFT HAND SHOT!
PERFECT SHOT
BY PACQUIAO.
IT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN
A HOME RUN,
BUT IT WAS A DOUBLE
INTO THE CORNER.
AND MARQUEZ IS HURT.
HE BETTER BE VERY GLAD
THAT IT'S AT THE END OF THE ROUND.
[BELL RINGS]
STILL AT IT. THIS FIGHT CAN
GO ON LIKE THIS ALL NIGHT.
MARQUEZ ALMOST WENT DOWN
A SECOND TIME.
AND HE ALMOST WENT TO
THE WRONG CORNER AS WELL.
Translator: ARE YOU OK?
RELAX, RELAX, RELAX.
RELAX, RELAX. YOU OK?
OK, BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU'RE EXTENDING THE PUNCHES.
[CONVERSATION IN SPANISH CONTINUES]
HEY, MANNY, MANNY,
GET THAT FOOT OUTSIDE.
DON'T FOLLOW HIM. TAKE IT TO HIM
ON THE OUTSIDE, OK?
Steward: HERE YOU SEE THE KNOCKDOWN RIGHT HERE.
BEAUTIFUL SHORT LEFT.
AND HE WOULD HAVE BEEN DOWN AGAIN A SECOND TIME
EXCEPT FOR THE ROPES HELD HIM UP,
AND THEN HE CAME BACK AND STUNNED PACQUIAO SLIGHTLY
AT THE END OF THE ROUND.
Merchant: THAT WAS THE SAME SEQUENCE OF PUNCHES
AS THE ONE
THAT BUCKLED PACQUIAO EARLIER.
Lampley: MARQUEZ TOOK
AN UNWARRANTED RISK
LOOKING TO GET AT PACQUIAO
AND PAID A BIG PRICE.
HAROLD, HOW DO YOU HAVE IT
INTO THE FOURTH?
Harold Lederman:
OK, JIM, 2 ROUNDS TO 1,
29-27 MANNY PACQUIAO.
WE HAD TO GIVE HIM
AN EXTRA POINT FOR THAT KNOCKDOWN
IN ROUND 3.
HE WON THE FIRST ROUND.
I THOUGHT MARQUEZ
WON THE SECOND,
2-1, PACQUIAO.
Lampley: MARQUEZ TRYING
TO GO BACK TO THE BODY
AND TRYING TO GO BACK TO
A MORE TACTICAL STYLE NOW.
PACQUIAO TRYING TO SEARCH
AND DESTROY,
MARQUEZ TRYING TO SHOCK
HIM WITH COUNTERPUNCHING AGGRESSION.
I'M THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED
WITH PACQUIAO'S--
AND REALLY HIS TIMING
AND COORDINATION,
THE WAY HE'S IN AND OUT
AND HIS UPPER BODY MOVEMENT.
I'VE NEVER SAW HIM
THIS GOOD WITH HIS UPPER BODY MOVEMENT.
AND IN THAT
EXCHANGE EARLIER,
HE LANDED
A REALLY QUICK, SOLID RIGHT HAND.
HE IS
AN AMAZING ATHLETE.
JUST AN AMAZING
ATHLETIC SPECIMEN.
THE SPEED, THE POWER,
THE DYNAMISM,
THE STAMINA, THE ABILITY
TO KEEP DOING IT.
THAT'S WHY MANNY PACQUIAO
IS SO GREAT.
IT'S ALMOST AS IF
MARQUEZ HAS DECIDED TO FACE THE INEVITABLE.
HE CAN'T BACK OFF.
PACQUIAO'S
CONFIDENCE IS BUILDING UP NOW.
AND HE'S SHOOTING
HIS MISSILES NOW.
HE'S RUNNING IT.
LOOK AT THIS.
THIS IS THE KIND
OF FIRE FIGHT
THAT MARQUEZ
DIDN'T WANT TO GET INTO,
BUT PACQUIAO
IS MAKING HIM FIGHT.
YEAH. YOU'RE NOT GONNA
OUTBOX PACQUIAO.
HE'S GONNA HAVE
TO FIGHT HIM.
AND PACQUIAO SEEMS TO BE
STRONGER NOW.
HIS CONFIDENCE SEEMS
TO HAVE COME BACK.
AND HE'S PUNCHING WITH SO
MUCH POWER AND CONFIDENCE.
GOOD LEFT HOOK
BY MARQUEZ.
IT'S A MEASURE
OF PACQUIAO'S IMPROVEMENT
AS A FIGHTER
HOW MEASURED
HE'S BEEN IN THIS ROUND.
HE DIDN'T GET
TOO EXCITED OFF
OF THE END OF
THE LAST ROUND.
[TEN SECONDS LEFT
IN ROUND SIGNAL]
[BELL RINGS]
MARQUEZ LANDED A SOLID STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND
TO PUNCTUATE THE FOURTH ROUND.
Man: GOT HIM DOWN.
RELAX, RELAX.
DEEP BREATH.
DEEP BREATH.
ALL RIGHT.
MANNY...
PRETTY BAD?
YOU OK?
Pacquiao: YEAH.
Man: PUT YOUR ARMS DOWN.
PUT YOUR ARMS DOWN, MANNY.
[SPEAKING SPANISH]
Translator: YOU'RE DOING GOOD. YOU'RE DOING GOOD.
JUST PROTECT YOURSELF.
EXCEPT FOR THE FALL, YOU'RE DOING GOOD, VERY GOOD.
LEFT-RIGHT, LEFT HOOK TO THE BODY.
HURT THE BODY.
HE'S COMING WITH HIS LEFT.
COME ON. LOOK ALIVE, LOOK ALIVE.
DON'T FALL INTO HIS GAME PLAN.
Steward: HERE YOU SEE PACQUIAO LAND HIS PATENTED RIGHT
AND STRAIGHT LEFT FOLLOW-THROUGH RIGHT ON THE CHIN.
Lampley: WHEN WE ASKED MANNY PACQUIAO YESTERDAY
WHAT KIND OF FIGHT HE EXPECTED,
HE BROKE OUT IN A BIG GRIN
AND SAID, "HEY, HE HIMSELF
SAID,"
MEANING JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ,
"'HE SAID IT WAS GONNA BE
A WAR.
I'M VERY HAPPY ABOUT THAT.'"
SOMETIMES IN THIS FIGHT,
IT HAS BECOME A WAR,
AND WHEN IT IS,
MANNY PACQUIAO AS USUAL HAS THE ADVANTAGE.
WELL, HE LOVES TO FIGHT.
YOU CAN SEE IT IN HIS EYES.
I DON'T THINK THERE'S
ANYBODY IN THE BOXING LEAGUE
THAT LOVES TO FIGHT
AS MUCH AS HE DOES.
THAT'S A BIG STATEMENT.
YEP. BUT HE LOVES
TO FIGHT. YOU CAN SEE IT.
AND I THINK HE WOULD
RATHER BE DOING THIS THAN ANYTHING ELSE
IN THE WORLD.
HENRY ARMSTRONG?
I DON'T THINK
HE SAYS MUCH OF THIS.
JUST LOOKING AT
HIS EYES,
YOU CAN SEE THE INTENSITY
AND THE FIERCENESS IN HIM
THAT SAYS THAT
HE IS A TRUE FIGHTER.
COMPUBOX NUMBERS
THROUGH 4 ROUNDS
FOUND THEM LANDING
AN ALMOST IDENTICAL NUMBER OF PUNCHES,
51 FOR MARQUEZ
AND 53 FOR PACQUIAO.
LITTLE TO CHOOSE
BETWEEN THE TWO,
BUT IT'S PACQUIAO WHO HAS
PUT MARQUEZ ON HIS TRUNKS.
AT THIS STAGE,
PACQUIAO LOOKS SO STURDY AND SO STRONG
MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY.
Merchant: TWO GOOD
JABS FROM PACQUIAO,
SOMETHING WE SELDOM
SAW IN THE PAST.
NOW RIGHT HANDS
BY MARQUEZ.
[CROWD CHANTING "MANNY"]
Lampley: GOOD RIGHT HAND
LANDS FOR PACQUIAO.
BACKING MARQUEZ UP,
JUAN MANUEL COMES FORWARD,
REACHING WITH THE LEFT
TO THE BODY.
REACHING WITH THE LEFT
UPSTAIRS.
JAB BY PACQUIAO,
GREAT STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND BY MARQUEZ.
LEFT HAND LANDS
FOR PACQUIAO.
MARQUEZ WAS MOVING
TO THE SIDE.
THERE'S THE RIGHT HAND
AGAIN.
THAT'S THE SCORING WEAPON
FOR JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ,
WHO HAS MANAGED
TO KEEP IT A BOXING MATCH
IN THIS ROUND.
AND HE MAY HAVE WON
THIS ROUND, TOO,
BECAUSE IT'S BEEN
A TIT-FOR-TAT ROUND.
AND THAT WAS A GOOD, CLEAN PUNCH THERE.
BOTH MEN TRY TO RALLY DOWN THE STRETCH
AND STEAL THE ROUND.
BOTH MEN LAND A COUPLE OF PUNCHES.
[SPEAKING SPANISH]
Translator: WITH THE HOOK,
WITH THE RIGHT.
REMEMBER,
WHATEVER YOU CAN.
AND USE THE UPPERCUT.
BUT, REMEMBER,
HE'S NOT IN POSITION
ALL THE TIME FOR THAT.
AND YOUR HANDS UP. YOUR HANDS UP.
AND THE UPPERCUT. RIGHT UPPERCUT WITH THE HOOK TO THE LIVER.
ALL RIGHT?
OK.
ALL RIGHT.
I WANT YOU TO GET BUSY OUT THERE.
GET THAT JAB GOING, SON.
GO FROM YOUR LEFT HAND TO THE RIGHT HAND.
ALL RIGHT.
NOW, HERE, MANNY,
WHEN YOU'RE FIRST,
YOU CONTROL HIM.
ALL RIGHT?
YEAH.
ALL RIGHT.
LET'S BE FIRST. DO WHAT YOU
ALWAYS DO
WITH THAT JAB. CONTROL HIM...
Steward: OK, ONCE AGAIN, WE SEE ONE SINGLE PUNCH
AND PROBABLY THE MOST MEMORABLE PUNCH IN THE WHOLE ROUND
WHICH WAS A STRAIGHT RIGHT,
BUT THIS TIME IT CAME FROM MARQUEZ.
[WHISTLE BLOWS]
Lampley: COMPUBOX NUMBERS IN THE FIFTH:
MARQUEZ 12 OUT OF 38, PACQUIAO 10 OUT OF 40.
RELATIVELY SLOW PACE FOR THESE KINDS OF FIGHTERS.
10 OF MARQUEZ'S 12
CONNECTS WERE POWER SHOTS.
PROBABLY ALMOST ALL THAT
STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND.
HIS BEST TACTIC
AGAINST PACQUIAO.
ALREADY INTO THE SIXTH.
AFTER ALL THE WAITING,
NEARLY 4 YEARS
BETWEEN FIGHTS,
WE'RE ALMOST
HALFWAY THROUGH.
TARGETED RIGHT HAND
BY MARQUEZ.
VERY SMART. HE STARTED
WITH THE RIGHT HAND
AND WAITED TILL PACQUIAO
MOVED HIS HEAD,
AND THEN HE LET IT GO
AFTER THAT.
SMART.
YEAH.
BODY SHOT BY MARQUEZ.
IGNACIO BERISTAIN
WAS ASKING FOR THAT,
THE LEFT HAND TO
THE LIVER BETWEEN ROUNDS.
THERE'S A SLIGHT ABRASION
OUTSIDE OF ONE OF
MANNY PACQUIAO'S EYES.
THE LEFT EYE, AND THAT'S
WHAT MARQUEZ TARGETS
WHEN HE FIRES
THAT RIGHT HAND.
YEAH, HE'S POT-SHOTTING
HIM RIGHT NOW,
AND MANNY'S LOST
HIS RHYTHM.
HE'S GOT TO
GET HIS RHYTHM BACK.
WELL, FREDDIE ROACH SAID,
"I WANT YOU TO GET BUSY."
THAT'S REALLY WHAT MANNY
NEEDS TO DO IS TO GO IN
AND THROW PUNCHES
IN BUNCHES.
HIS FLURRIES
AND COMBINATIONS
DESTROYED ERIK MORALES.
RIGHT NOW, MARQUEZ HAS GOT
HIM BACK ON A STRING.
BODY SHOT BY JUAN MANUEL.
AND THIS IS THE PACE
WHERE MARQUEZ WANTS TO KEEP THE FIGHT,
AT THIS DISTANCE AND AT
THIS PACE RIGHT HERE,
WHERE HE'S MORE
EFFECTIVE THAN PACQUIAO IS.
NOW PACQUIAO GETS IN
A GOOD BODY SHOT.
AND MARQUEZ TILTS HIM
A LITTLE BIT
WITH THE RIGHT HAND
UPSTAIRS.
LIKE I SAID EARLIER,
ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN THIS FIGHT.
I MEAN, ONE OF THESE
COULD GET KNOCKED DOWN
AND COME BACK THE SAME
WAY AND KNOCK THE OTHER GUY DOWN.
HARD RIGHT HAND
BY MARQUEZ.
YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE
IN POWER.
NOW MARQUEZ GETS IN
A LEFT HOOK.
HE'S OUTBOXING
PACQUIAO AGAIN.
PACQUIAO LOOKS PHYSICALLY
MUCH STRONGER...
BUT THIS ROUND HERE,
MARQUEZ IS WINNING THE FIGHT.
Merchant: WELL, HE'S
NEUTRALIZING HIS LEFT HAND SO FAR.
HE'S NOT LETTING
HIM DOMINATE HIM WITH THE LEFT HAND.
KEEPING PACQUIAO
JUST CONSCIOUS ENOUGH
OF HIS OWN RIGHT.
AS IMPROVED
AS PACQUIAO'S RIGHT HAND IS,
I WOULD TAKE MY
CHANCES ON HIM BEATING ME
WITH THE RIGHT
HAND.
HERE'S THE THING,
THOUGH,
I THINK THE BIGGEST
THING TO ME FOR PACQUIAO IN THIS FIGHT
IS THAT HIS TIMING AND UPPER
BODY MOVEMENT AND RHYTHM,
THE IN AND OUT RHYTHM,
IS MUCH BETTER THAN I'VE EVER SAW IT.
A LITTLE BODY PUNCH
INSIDE FOR MARQUEZ.
PACQUIAO REACHES
THE BODY, AND MARQUEZ HITS HIM UPSTAIRS.
COUNTERPUNCHING HIM.
TAKING ADVANTAGE OF PACQUIAO
GETTING OUT OF POSITION
WHEN HE THROWS
HIS LEFT HAND.
THERE IT IS.
HE TRIED IT AGAIN.
IN ROUNDS LIKE THIS, YOU CAN
FEEL JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ
OUTTHINKING
MANNY PACQUIAO.
YES.
GOOD RIGHT HAND!
[BELL RINGS]
CLEARLY MARQUEZ
WON THAT ROUND.
COME ON, BIG BOY.
DEEP BREATH.
COME ON.
KEEP YOUR ARMS DOWN.
ALL RIGHT, MANNY,
YOU'RE LETTING IT GET AWAY FROM YOU.
YOU'RE STANDING
RIGHT IN FRONT OF THIS GUY
AND LETTING HIM
GET OFF HIS COMBINATIONS.
Man: SEVENTH ROUND
COMING UP.
Translator: YOU NEED TO
FINISH OFF YOUR PUNCHES.
YOU HAVE TO FINISH OFF YOUR
PUNCHES WITH THE COMBINATIONS.
WHEN YOU THROW IT, THROW
THE HOOK, THROW THE HOOK.
WITH A HOOK TO THE LEFT.
AND THEN THE UPPERCUT.
COME ON. YOU HAVEN'T THROWN ONE.
GO TO THE BODY.
GO TO THE BODY.
COME ON. HIS MOUTH
IS OPEN ALREADY.
[CONTINUES IN SPANISH]
[BELL RINGS]
Lampley:
WE GO TO THE SEVENTH OF A SCHEDULED 12.
COMPUBOX NUMBERS
IN THE SIXTH WERE RELATIVELY EVEN.
TO MY EYES, IT WAS CLEAR THAT MARQUEZ
TACTICALLY WON THE ROUND.
HAROLD LEDERMAN,
WHAT DID YOU SEE AND HOW DO YOU HAVE IT?
Lederman: OK, JIM, I
GOT IT 3 ROUNDS APIECE,
BUT IN THE
ALL-IMPORTANT CATEGORY, 57-56 MANNY PACQUIAO
BECAUSE OF THAT
EXTRA POINT THAT HE GETS FOR THE KNOCKDOWN
IN ROUND NUMBER 3.
JIM, I AGREE WITH YOU,
JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ IS
DOING A BEAUTIFUL JOB
WITH THAT RIGHT HAND
TO WIN ROUNDS 5 AND 6
AFTER MARQUEZ WON ROUND 2.
SO 3-3, BUT PACQUIAO BY
A POINT ON THE KNOCKDOWN.
Merchant: I HAVE
THE SAME SCORE.
ISN'T IT INTERESTING
THAT IT TOOK A KNOCKDOWN
IN THIS FIGHT
AS IT DID
3 KNOCKDOWNS IN THE FIRST FIGHT
FOR MARQUEZ
TO FIND WHAT HE WANTED TO DO?
Lampley: HARD LEFT
HAND BY PACQUIAO.
MARQUEZ MISSING,
COMING BACK.
IF THE FIGHT FOLLOWS
ITS PATTERN
OF SEESAW ACTIVITY
BACK AND FORTH,
THEN THIS WILL BE A ROUND
THAT PACQUIAO WINS.
Steward: YEAH, AND MARQUEZ,
AND THIS IS REALLY MARQUEZ'S STYLE OF FIGHT
THE WAY HE'S FIGHTING IT--
TECHNICALLY
WHERE HE CAN COUNTERPUNCH
AND HE'S A LITTLE BIT
SMARTER BY KEEPING THAT SPACE.
BUT I JUST LIKE
THE ENERGY OF PACQUIAO.
EVEN WHEN HE GOES BACK
BETWEEN THE ROUNDS,
HE JUST LOOKS
SO MUCH STRONGER. SO MUCH ENERGY SEEMS TO BE
STILL IN HIS BODY
AS COMPARED TO MARQUEZ.
JUAN MANUEL LANDED
A LITTLE LEFT HOOK TO THE BODY.
AND SOMETIMES A LITTLE--OH,
AND THEY HAVE A HEAD BUTT,
AND THERE'S BLOOD OUTSIDE
THE RIGHT EYE
OF JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ.
AND MARQUEZ WITH A LOOK
OF DISGUST ON HIS FACE.
Bayliss: ACCIDENTAL
HEAD BUTT!
Merchant: LEFT-HANDED,
RIGHT-HANDED.
Doctor: FINE. LET'S GO.
Bayliss:
ALL RIGHT. TIME IN!
Lampley: FORTUNATELY
FOR MARQUEZ,
THE CUT IS FAR ENOUGH
OUTSIDE THE EYE
THAT I DON'T THINK THE BLOOD
WILL AFFECT HIS VISION.
WITH THE MATCH WITH BURNS,
THAT HE HAD A GOOD CUT MAN
IN THE CORNER ALSO.
PACQUIAO LANDED
A QUICK RIGHT HOOK,
MOMENTARILY LIFTED MARQUEZ
OFF HIS FRONT FOOT.
ANOTHER LEFT HAND
FOR PACQUIAO.
MARQUEZ HAS TO FIGHT BACK.
THEY'RE TRADING INSIDE.
IT'S A MANNY PACQUIAO-TYPE
ROUND.
YOU KNOW, MARQUEZ IS GONNA
HAVE TO FIGHT HIM.
YOU CAN'T OUTBOX THIS GUY.
HE'S GONNA HAVE TO FIGHT HIM.
HE OUTBOXED HIM
FOR 2 ROUNDS.
Merchant: WELL,
AFTER THAT EXCHANGE,
MARQUEZ
WAS IN BALANCE
AND PACQUIAO WAS
FALLING BACKWARD.
IT'S ALMOST AS IF
THE SIGHT OF BLOOD ON MARQUEZ'S FACE
HAS AGAIN BROUGHT OUT
THE TIGER IN PACQUIAO.
MARQUEZ MISSING WITH
THAT BIG RIGHT HAND.
NOW HE LANDS THE RIGHT
AND DRIVES PACQUIAO BACK.
PACQUIAO
WITH TWO HARD LEFTS.
THEY'RE FIGHTING AGAIN
IN THE SEVENTH.
[TEN SECONDS LEFT
IN ROUND SIGNAL]
Bayliss: TIME!
[BELL RINGS]
[SPEAKING SPANISH]
Translator, as first man: HE'S
CUT. HE'S CUT. HE'S ALSO CUT.
Translator, as second man:
NO, IT'S A VERY LITTLE CUT. VERY LITTLE CUT.
IT'S NOTHING. DON'T WORRY
ABOUT IT. DON'T BE SCARED.
THERE'S NOTHING THERE.
NOTHING. IT WAS A HEAD BUTT.
MANNY,
DRINK SOME WATER.
ALL RIGHT, MANNY,
THAT'S THE WAY TO FIGHT THIS GUY,
ON YOUR TOES, IN AND OUT, SPEED.
MANNY, LISTEN TO ME, HE CANNOT HANDLE YOUR...
Steward: HERE WE SEE THE HEAD BUTT,
IN THE PARTICULAR WAY THAT PACQUIAO FIGHTS
'CAUSE HE LUNGES IN WHEN HE PUNCHES,
SO WHENEVER YOU GET A BUTT FROM HIM, IT'S REALLY A TRUE BUTT,
BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN EITHER WAY.
THE OTHER GUY COULD HAVE GOT CUT.
AND RIGHT AFTER YOU'LL SEE THIS PADDING AND PUNCHING--
LONG 1-2,
A RIGHT JAB FOLLOWED BY A LONG STRAIGHT LEFT.
[BELL RINGS]
Lampley: IN THE SUMMER,
WE SAW A FIGHT IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
BETWEEN SHANE MOSLEY
AND MIGUEL COTTO
IN WHICH THE TWO FIGHTERS
LANDED THROUGH 12 ROUNDS
AN IDENTICAL NUMBER
OF PUNCHES BY COMPUBOX COUNT, 248 APIECE.
THROUGH 7 ROUNDS TONIGHT,
MARQUEZ BY COMPUBOX COUNT
HAS LANDED 93 PUNCHES--
THE SAME NUMBER
HE LANDED THROUGH 7
IN THE FIRST FIGHT--
AND PACQUIAO HAS LANDED 91.
AN AMAZINGLY EVEN FIGHT,
AND THE STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND
BY MARQUEZ HURT PACQUIAO.
Merchant: I
THINK IT LANDED IN HIS EYE, JIM,
AND HE SQUINTED
HIS EYE.
HE'S NOT
HURT, BUT...
NOW THERE'S BLOOD
IN THE EYE--
THAT'S WHAT I MEAN. HE
HURT HIM WITH THAT PUNCH.
HE CUT HIM AND THERE'S
BLOOD ON HIS EYE.
IT WAS AN UPPERCUT.
IT WAS FROM THE BLOW, TOO.
IT WASN'T A BUTT.
THAT'S DAMAGE.
NOW BOTH GUYS HAVE GOT TO
GO DOWN TO FIGHT WITH IT.
IN THEIR LAST FIGHT, MARQUEZ
FOUGHT WITH HIS NOSE BROKEN.
THAT WAS AFTER
THE FIRST ROUND.
THIS IS LIVING UP TO WHAT
IT WAS EXPECTED TO BE
BUT A LITTLE BIT
MORE TACTICAL,
BUT STILL THE DRAMA
IS STILL HERE.
THE LOCATION
OF PACQUIAO'S CUT, FAR MORE DANGEROUS TO HIM
THAN THE LOCATION OF
MARQUEZ'S CUT IS TO HIM.
PACQUIAO IS
VERY BOTHERED BY IT.
IT'S BOTHERING HIM VERY
MUCH LIKE DIAZ'S WAS.
IT'S NOT JUST A CUT,
BUT IT'S BOTHERING HIM.
THAT CUT IS RIGHT IN
THE EYELID OR IN THE EYE.
AND YOU NOTICE
THAT MARQUEZ
IMMEDIATELY MIXED
IN BODY PUNCHES TO COMPOUND THE DAMAGE.
A LEFT HOOK LANDS FOR
MARQUEZ RIGHT ON THE CUT.
PACQUIAO IS GONNA TRY
TO BEAT HIM BACK.
MARQUEZ IS MORE ACCURATE.
THAT'S A SECRET PUNCH
THAT IF MARQUEZ USES,
IT'S GOING TO BE
VERY EFFECTIVE.
IT'LL CHANGE
THE WHOLE FIGHT.
A SIMPLE LEFT JAB,
WITH WHICH HE'LL CONTROL
PACQUIAO BETTER.
WELL, HE CAN USE IT
A LOT MORE NOW
IF PACQUIAO'S
LEAD EYE IS STOPPING HIM--
THERE'S A PERFECT
COMBINATION BY MARQUEZ.
HE IS SWAMPING PACQUIAO
IN THIS ROUND,
TAKING TREMENDOUS ADVANTAGE
OF THE TACTICAL FLAW
THAT HAS BEEN CREATED
FOR PACQUIAO BY THAT CUT.
PERFECT UPPERCUT
BY MARQUEZ.
PACQUIAO TRYING TO SWING
AWAY WITH THE LEFT HAND
AND TURN THINGS
BACK AROUND.
PACQUIAO STILL PUNCHES--
PUNCHES WITH SO MUCH POWER
WITH THAT LEFT HAND,
AND MARQUEZ IS
EXCHANGING WITH HIM,
BUT HIS HEAD IS UP
A LOT OF TIMES,
AND ALL PACQUIAO NEEDS IS
TO LAND IS ONE LEFT-HAND PUNCH
AND HE CAN CHANGE
THIS WHOLE FIGHT AGAIN.é
[BELL RINGS]
AS MANNY PACQUIAO GOES
BACK TO HIS CORNER,
HIS CUT MAN IS
THE VETERAN JOE CHAVEZ,
AND CHAVEZ MUST NOW
GO TO WORK.
SUDDENLY HE'S
THE MOST IMPORTANT
MAN IN THE RING
FOR PACQUIAO.
[SPEAKING
NATIVE LANGUAGE]
DEEPER,
I THINK.
MANNY...
[CONTINUES SPEAKING
NATIVE LANGUAGE]
HERE WE SEE THE RIGHT HAND THAT LANDED
THAT REALLY DID ALL OF THE DAMAGE TO THE RIGHT EYE OF PACQUIAO.
SOLID RIGHT, NO HEAD BUTT OR NOTHING ACCIDENTALLY
OR OTHERWISE,
AND HERE YOU SEE A SIMPLE 1-2.
BOTH PUNCHES LANDED TO THE RIGHT EYE.
Merchant: PACQUIAO WAS MORE THAN A 2-1 FAVORITE
IN THIS FIGHT.
IT SEEMED
TO BE HIGH,
AND NOW IT SEEMS
TO BE WAY MORE THAN HIGH.
Lampley: IN ROUND 8,
21 CONNECTED PUNCHES FOR MARQUEZ,
ONLY 5 CONNECTED
FOR PACQUIAO.
HE ONLY THREW 25.
HE WAS TRYING FOR MOST OF THE ROUND
TO RECOVER FROM THE BADLY
CUT RIGHT EYE.
PACQUIAO SUFFERED
A CUT ON THAT EYE
IN HIS FIRST FIGHT WITH
ERIK MORALES,
AND IT WAS A FACTOR
IN HIS DECISION LOSS.
EVEN THOUGH THE BETTING
HOUSES HAVE ALWAYS HAD PACQUIAO AHEAD
IF YOU TALK TO NOT JUST
THE FANS HERE,
BUT GENERAL PEOPLE
I'VE BEEN SPEAKING TO,
EVERYBODY'S BEEN, LIKE,
SPLIT EVEN.
IN FACT, I WOULD SAY
PROBABLY MORE OF THEM HAVE BEEN PICKING MARQUEZ
THAT I'VE SPOKE TO,
AND THAT WAS EVEN BEFORE
COMING TO THE FIGHT HERE.
WELL, THOSE ARE
BOXING PEOPLE.
THEY AREN'T THE ONES
WHO MAKE THE ODDS IN THE CASINOS.
RIGHT, RIGHT.
THAT'S TRUE.
THAT'S ABOUT HOW MANY
FILIPINOS BET ON PACQUIAO
AND HOW MANY MEXICANS
BET ON MARQUEZ.
HARD RIGHT HAND
BY PACQUIAO.
AND INCIDENTALLY CHAVEZ
GOT THE BLOOD TO STOP.
THE SWELLING
IS STILL THERE,
BUT IT'S NOT BLEEDING.
YEAH, SO FAR BOTH
OF THE CUT GUYS ARE DOING A GOOD JOB.
IGNACIO BERISTAIN
DOES HIS OWN CUTS IN MARQUEZ'S CORNER.
AGAIN, JOE CHAVEZ WAS
THE MAN WHO STOPPED PACQUIAO'S BLEEDING
BETWEEN ROUNDS.
PERFECT STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND
BY MARQUEZ,
AND THE BLOOD BEGINS
TO FLOW AGAIN AS PACQUIAO REACHES UP
AND THUMBS IT
WITH HIS GLOVE.
THAT'S THE STRAIGHT LEFT...
HARD LEFT HAND BY PACQUIAO.
THAT'S THE STRAIGHT LEFT
THAT I'VE BEEN WAITING ON TONIGHT.
MARQUEZ IS PULLING BACK,
BUT HE'S STILL REAL-- IN A POSITION
TO GET HIT WITH
THOSE LEFT HANDS.
AND HIT,
AND THE RIGHT EYE OF MARQUEZ
IS NOW
BOTHERING HIM
MORE THAN IT DID
PREVIOUSLY.
HARD LEFT HAND
BY PACQUIAO DRIVES MARQUEZ BACK.
A BODY SHOT LANDS
FOR MARQUEZ.
THIS ROUND IS ON THE TABLE
WITH 40 SECONDS TO GO.
YEAH.
BUT THE MOMENTUM IS
ALONG WITH PACQUIAO NOW.
THAT'S CORRECT.
HE'S GOT HIS RHYTHM
GOING AGAIN.
YEP, AND HE'S GETTING
SOME OF HIS CONFIDENCE BACK
AFTER IT CLEARLY WAVERED
IN THE EIGHTH ROUND.
IT MAY BE
A NEW CUT OVER MARQUEZ'S EYES.
ONE THING WE
CAN BE SURE OF,
WHEN A MARQUEZ
GETS INTO A FIGHT,
IT'S A FIGHT.
Doctor: HE CAN CONTINUE,
BUT KEEP AN EYE ON IT. KEEP AN EYE ON IT.
ALL RIGHT. TIME IN!
Merchant:
THAT'S THE SECOND CUT...
Lampley: I BELIEVE
YOU'RE RIGHT.
OVER
THE RIGHT EYE.
YEP. THIS IS NOT
THE ONE OUTSIDE ANYMORE.
THIS ONE MUST
HAVE BEEN CAUSED
BY A LEFT-HAND PUNCH
BY PACQUIAO.
IT'S GOOD THEY HAVE A GOOD
BOXING DOCTOR OVER THERE.
JEFF DAVIDSON, GOOD DOCTOR.
THERE'S A LOT OF DOCTORS
WHO PANIC AND STOP A FIGHT.
NEVADA'S MEDICAL
SUPERVISION IS THE BEST.
THEY TRADE SHOTS!
WHAT A WAR!
BOTH MEN TRYING DESPERATELY
TO WIN THE ROUND.
Translator:
WHERE'S THE VASELINE?
[SPEAKING SPANISH]
OPEN UP.
YOU STOPPED PRESSING.
YOU STOPPED PRESSING.
THAT'S WHEN HE CAUGHT YOU.
PRESS HIM, PRESS HIM.
Steward: HERE YOU SEE PACQUIAO IS GETTING HIS RANGE AGAIN
AND STARTING TO FIND HIS TARGET
WITH THAT LONG, STRAIGHT LEFT HAND.
IN FACT, THAT'S THE PUNCH EVIDENTLY THAT PROBABLY CAUSED
THE SECOND CUT.
Lampley: COMPUBOX NUMBERS IN THE NINTH.
MY GOSH, ARE WE ALREADY
IN THE TENTH ROUND?
MARQUEZ LANDED 12
AND PACQUIAO LANDED 13,
AND HAROLD, THAT WASN'T
AN EASY ROUND TO SCORE.
HOW DO YOU HAVE THE FIGHT?
Lederman: OK, JIM, 5 ROUNDS
TO 4, 86-84 MANNY PACQUIAO.
JIM, I TELL YOU,
THAT ONE POINT--
[CROWD DROWNS OUT COMMENTATORS]
Lampley: THIS ALL
STARTED WITH A BRILLIANT PACQUIAO LEFT HAND,
WHICH LOOKED FOR A MOMENT
AS THOUGH IT WAS GONNA
KNOCK MARQUEZ DOWN.
BUT HE JUST LOOKS SO STRONG,
AND AS I SAID, GOING BACK
TO THE ROUNDS.
AND I LOOKED AT HOW
MARQUEZ WALKS,
BUT HE JUST LOOKS WEAKER
AND DON'T SEEM TO HAVE
THE ENERGY OR THE STRENGTH
OF PACQUIAO.
ANOTHER LEFT HAND
CLOCKS MARQUEZ,
AND THE BLOOD BEGINS
TO FLOW IN HIS RIGHT EYE.
A BIG ROUND
FOR PACQUIAO SO FAR.
[CROWD CHANTING "MANNY"]
Merchant:
PACQUIAO'S RIGHT EYE
HAS BEEN PATCHED UP
WELL SO FAR.
Lampley: YEAH, JOE CHAVEZ
DOING A FINE JOB IN PACQUIAO'S CORNER.
IGNACIO BERISTAIN HAS HAD
AN INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT
JOB ON HIS HANDS.
THAT'S THAT SECOND CUT.
THE FIRST ONE WAS BAD,
BUT THE SECOND CUT SEEMS
TO BE REALLY BAD.
IN FACT, THE DOCTOR WAS
OVER THERE--
DR. DAVIDSON WAS EVEN
SEEMINGLY CONSIDERING MAYBE STOPPING IT
OR TELLING THE REFEREE
THAT IF IT WORSENS,
TO STOP THE FIGHT.
IT WOULD BE A TREMENDOUS
DISAPPOINTMENT
IF A FIGHT LIKE THIS
WERE STOPPED ON A CUT.
BIG DISAPPOINTMENT,
BUT I THINK THE FANS
WILL UNDERSTAND IT.
BOTH GUYS HAVE BEEN CUT.
PACQUIAO RIPPING
THE LEFT HAND.
MARQUEZ COMING BACK.
WHAT GUTS BOTH FIGHTERS
HAVE SHOWN TONIGHT.
GREAT RIGHT HAND BY MARQUEZ.
[CROWD CHANTING "MANNY"]
Lampley:
PACQUIAO'S MOUTHPIECE DROPS OUT OF HIS MOUTH.
AND HE WASN'T HIT. SO
MAYBE HE'S GETTING TIRED...
MARQUEZ GOES AFTER
HIM, TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS.
HE KNOWS THAT PACQUIAO
HAS LOST HIS MOUTHPIECE.
AND MAYBE HE'S
GETTING TIRED, TOO.
IF HE HITS HIM RIGHT IN
THE MOUTH, HE COULD CUT HIM.
[BELL RINGS]
BUT IT'S PACQUIAO
WHO BACKS HIM OFF.
[MEN SPEAKING SPANISH]
Translator: YOU'RE NOT PRESSING HIM. YOU'RE NOT PRESSING HIM.
WHEN YOU GET THE PUNCH IN, YOU'RE WAITING.
YOU'RE WAITING,
AND THEN HE BUILDS.
COME ON. PRESS, PRESS, PRESS.
THERE'S ONLY
2 MORE ROUNDS, JUAN.
ONLY 2 MORE ROUNDS.
ATTACK THE BODY.
PUT THE UPPERCUTS IN.
ATTACK THE BODY. ATTACK THE BODY. STRONG.
OH! HE CAN'T TOLERATE IT ANYMORE.
IF YOU HIT THE BODY, HE'S NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE...
Steward: HERE YOU SEE HOW TO LOSE YOUR PUNCH RIGHT HERE.
YOU SEE PACQUIAO DUCK A PUNCH AND JUST WING A PUNCH,
NOT EVEN KNOWING WHERE IT'S GOING, AND IT LANDED.
Merchant: BLOOD IS DRAMA.
WE HAVE BLOOD,
WE HAVE DRAMA.
Lampley: IT WOULD BE NO
INJUSTICE IF JEFF DAVIDSON STOPPED THE FIGHT
BECAUSE OF THE CUT
OVER MARQUEZ'S EYE.
IT IS A BRUTAL GASH.
BUT COMPUBOX NUMBERS
IN THE TENTH WERE STILL ALMOST EVEN.
MARQUEZ--15 PUNCHES LANDED,
PACQUIAO--17 PUNCHES LANDED,
EQUAL IN POWER SHOTS.
MANNY'S JUST HAPPEN TO BE
THE HARDER SHOTS.
WHAT A GREAT JOB
JOE CHAVEZ HAS DONE WITH PACQUIAO'S RIGHT EYE.
IT'S CLOSING,
BUT NO BLOOD HAS FLOWED
FOR THE LAST COUPLE
OF ROUNDS.
[SCATTERED BOOS]
Lampley: KENNY BAYLISS
TELLS JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ TO KEEP 'EM UP.
Bayliss: TIME--OK?
PACQUIAO GETS TIME
TO RECOVER IF HE WANTS IT.
Bayliss:
OK? TIME IN!
TOUCH UP! TOUCH UP!
GET 'EM UP.
Lampley: WHAT A QUICK
RIGHT HOOK BY PACQUIAO
AS MARQUEZ WAS COMING IN.
AND IT SETS UP
A STRAIGHT LEFT HAND
THAT DRIVES MARQUEZ
BACK INTO THE CORNER.
MARQUEZ IS GOING
STRAIGHT BACK
TO GET HIT
WITH THOSE LEFTS.
SO HE'S NOT SLIPPING
HIS HEAD AT ALL.
HE'S RUNNING STRAIGHT BACK
IN A STRAIGHT LINE.
WINGING
RIGHT HAND BY MARQUEZ.
NOT AS MUCH POWER
IN THAT SHOT
AS WHEN HE THROWS IT
STRAIGHT UP THE GUT.
THAT'S THE PUNCH
THAT CAN HURT PACQUIAO
IF HE LANDS A COUPLE
OF THEM.
OR 3 OF THEM.
PACQUIAO COMES BACK
WITH HIS OWN RIGHT HAND.
Merchant:
PACQUIAO BLOCKED
3 PUNCHES
IN A ROW...
A PART OF HIS
GAME THAT YOU DON'T OFTEN SEE.
MARQUEZ REACHING
OVER THE TOP.
SOME OF HIS PUNCHES
ARE LOSING STEAM.
WHEN HE THROWS
THE STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND,
HE'S STILL GOT SOME STEAM.
PACQUIAO'S DEFENSE IS A LOT
BETTER THAN IT USED TO BE.
EVEN THOUGH HE'S
OFF BALANCE A LOT
AND YOU'LL SEE MARQUEZ
PUNCH HIM,
HE HALF-BLOCKS AND CATCHES
THOSE PUNCHES
WHERE HE USED TO--
IN THE FIRST FIGHT,
HE WAS GETTING HIT CLEAN.
BUT HE USUALLY KEEPS--
HE'S A LITTLE BIT AWARE
OF PUNCHES COMING BACK
THAN HE USED TO BE,
SO HE CATCHES A LOT
OF THEM ON ELBOWS
AND THEY'RE NOT AS EFFECTIVE
AS THEY APPEAR TO BE
ALL THE TIME.
UNLESS HE HAS WON THIS
ROUND--AND THAT'S IFFY--
MARQUEZ IS SLIPPING
INTO THAT AREA
WHERE HE MAY NEED A KNOCKOUT
TO BEAT MANNY PACQUIAO.
[BELL RINGS]
MANNY--
LAST ROUND, MANNY.
[MEN SPEAKING SPANISH]
Translator: YOU'RE DOING GOOD.
BUT DON'T LET HIM BUILD.
PUSH HIM BACK.
PUSH HIM BACK.
ATTACK THE BODY. YOU HAVE TO ATTACK THE BODY.
ATTACK THE BODY AND THEN FINISH OFF WITH THE RIGHT,
THEN THE UPPERCUT.
UP WITH A GOOD HOOK. COME ON.
LET'S GO,
MANNY.
Man: LAST ROUND, HUH?
Translator:
LAST ROUND, JUAN.
YOU GOT TO COME OUT
WITH EVERYTHING--
UPPER AND THE LEFT HOOK.
Announcer: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
FROM THE MANDALAY BAY IN LAS VEGAS, THIS IS ONE HELL OF A FIGHT.
THIS IS THE 12th AND FINAL ROUND.
[BELL RINGS]
Merchant:
I HAVE THIS FIGHT 6-5 FOR MARQUEZ,
WHICH MEANS THAT I
HAVE AN EVEN FIGHT
BECAUSE OF
THE KNOCKDOWN BY PACQUIAO.
Lampley: WELL,
THAT HEIGHTENS THE DRAMA.
STRAIGHT RIGHT HANDS
FOR MARQUEZ, 2 OF THEM.
PACQUIAO IS
GONNA BE LOOKING TO LAND ONE MORE BIG LEFT HAND
AT LEAST.
SOMETIMES JUDGES
SCORE BLOOD,
AND IT'S MARQUEZ WHO HAS HAD
BLOOD FLOWING DOWN HIS FACE
IN THE LAST 3 ROUNDS
OF THE FIGHT.
Bayliss: STEP BACK. STEP BACK.
Lampley: GOOD UPPERCUT
BY MARQUEZ SETS UP
A STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND.
PACQUIAO COMES RUNNING
BACK AT HIM,
AND MARQUEZ
ALMOST TACKLES HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING.
IF HE CAN JUST STAY AWAY
FROM PACQUIAO'S LEFT HAND,
WHICH IS A VERY
HARD THING TO DO,
HE HAS A GOOD CHANCE
OF WINNING THIS ROUND, WHICH COULD BE CRUCIAL.
SOLID SHOTS BY MARQUEZ,
AND HE DUCKS
MANNY'S RETURN LEFT.
THAT WAS PERFECT.
WHAT HE DID JUST THERE, GOING UNDERNEATH.
THERE YOU GO. HE'S
GOT TO KEEP DOING THAT
INSTEAD OF GOING
STRAIGHT BACK. INSTEAD JUST STRAIGHT UP.
A GOOD LEFT HAND
BY MARQUEZ.
NOW PACQUIAO LANDS
A SOLID SHOT,
BUT UP TO THIS POINT,
JUAN MANUEL IS WINNING THE ROUND.
WE'VE GOT ONE MINUTE TO GO.
HIGH DRAMA IN LAS VEGAS.
WE WAITED 4 YEARS TO SEE
THIS REMATCH.
JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ
TRYING TO AVENGE
ALL OF MANNY PACQUIAO'S
TRIUMPHS AGAINST MEXICAN FIGHTERS
AND DRIVING PACQUIAO BACK
INTO THE ROPES.
MARQUEZ GOING OUT
ON HIS SHIELD, IF HE'S LOSING,
AND SHOWING YOU
ALL THE HEART
THAT YOU MIGHT EXPECT
FROM A GREAT, PROUD MEXICAN FIGHTER.
WELL, WHATEVER
THE DECISION IS IS ONE THING,
BUT THIS ROUND,
IT LOOKS LIKE MARQUEZ IS WINNING THE ROUND.
SIMPLY BY AVOIDING
THOSE LUNGING LEFT-HAND PUNCHES, BENDING DOWN.
AND PACQUIAO DOESN'T HAVE
MUCH MORE OF THEM IN HIM
SO HE'S BEATING HIM
WITH OTHER SHORT COMBINATION PUNCHES.
NOW HERE COMES THE BLOOD,
AND HERE COMES THE CROWD
ON THEIR FEET.
EVERYBODY'S UP.
AS LONG AS HE AVOIDS
THAT LEFT HAND PUNCH,
HE'S GOT A GOOD CHANCE
OF WINNING THIS ROUND.
[TEN SECONDS LEFT
IN ROUND SIGNAL]
ONE MORE RIGHT HAND
FOR MARQUEZ.
ONE MORE COMBINATION
FROM PACQUIAO.
THEY TRADE SHOTS
DOWN THE STRETCH.
[BELL RINGS]
HELL OF A FIGHT.
I'M CALLING IT
ANOTHER DRAW.
HA HA!
MICHAEL BUFFER STANDS BY TO ELIMINATE THE SUSPENSE.
[BELL RINGS]
Michael Buffer: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
AFTER ONE OF THE ALL-TIME GREAT 12 ROUNDS
IN THE SUPER FEATHERWEIGHT DIVISION,
WE GO TO THE SCORECARDS.
JERRY ROTH SCORES THE BOUT 115-112 MARQUEZ.
DUANE FORD, 115-112 PACQUIAO.
TOM MILLER, 114-113
TO THE WINNER ON SPLIT DECISION
AND NEW CHAMPION FROM THE PHILIPPINES...
MANNY "PACMAN" PACQUIAO!
[CHEERING]
ANOTHER GREAT MEETING BETWEEN PACQUIAO AND MARQUEZ,
ANOTHER CLOSE, CONTROVERSIAL SCORING DECISION,
ANOTHER FIGHT MOSTLY INFLUENCED
BY THE KNOCKDOWN.
THIS TIME PACQUIAO, BECAUSE OF THE KNOCKDOWN OF MARQUEZ
IN THE THIRD ROUND, GETTING WHAT AMOUNTED TO
A ONE-POINT SPLIT-DECISION WIN.
SO NOW THEY HAVE MET TWICE.
PACQUIAO HAD A DRAW AND A WIN
BUT AS OF YET HADN'T CONVINCED RINGSIDERS
THAT HE WAS THE BETTER MAN.
IN FACT, MAYBE AS MANY AS 60% OF RINGSIDE SCORERS,
MEDIA PEOPLE AT PACQUIAO/MARQUEZ II
HAD MARQUEZ AS THE WINNER.
ANOTHER SPECTACULAR SET-UP FOR A REMATCH.
AND FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THEIR ONGOING PROGRESSION,
NEARLY 4 YEARS WOULD PASS BEFORE THEY'D MEET AGAIN.
THAT FIGHT IS THE SUBJECT OF ANOTHER CLASSIC LOOK BACK.
BUT ALL THIS GETS YOU READY FOR DECEMBER 8 OF THIS YEAR,
WHEN WE'RE GOING TO TAKE
YOU TO LAS VEGAS
FOR THE HISTORIC
FOURTH MEETING
BETWEEN MANNY PACQUIAO
AND JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ.
AND WE'LL BRING IT TO YOU
LIVE ON HBO PAY-PER-VIEW.

Announcer: THIS HAS BEEN A PRESENTATION OF HBO SPORTS.
