Marquez’s broken nose was no an issue in this fight… Pac broke Marquez’s nose in the 1st round of the 1st fight… Marquez boxed and counterpunched his way back into the fight.. He’s a veteran who’s not going to lose effectiveness because he’s forced to breath through his mouth.. He makes needed adjustments and keeps looking to win.

Hatton was previously KO’d silly by Mayweather. PAcquiao was a 3-1 favorite. The KO stself was brutal, but not surprising. Marquez accomplishment was bigger than life, all the more so if you consider how close their previous bouts were.

TARK, i experienced the same revelation in almost instantaneous fashion a year ago when i got a close-up look at Marquez at the racetrack a week before III. my initial reaction was “win or ‘lose’, this vato’s gonna Punish Manny*(?!)”. it was obvious that Marquez had increased his armament and ultimately without compromising his boxing skills. his shoulders looked especially ominous. it was symbolic of the pressure and burden he willingly assumed to track down and KTFO of the guy who knocked him down three times in a sngle round. Nine (9) F’n Disrespectful Years Later, Marquez accomplished his mission with SEAL-like lethality. i’m not gonna claim i saw That coming (who the f’k did?). it exceeded everyone’s imagination or nightmares BUT i did See and sense a convincing Marquez TKO win to even if not end their rivalry. virtually EVERYone else predicted and wanted otherwise. even those who should’ve known and wanted better. never mind the integrity that Marquez brings to the fight-game. never mind that a Mayweather v. Pacquiao* bout would’ve and would still be anticlimactic, in favor of Floyd. besides, it’s obvious that Team Punkuiao* never liked the matchup anyway. just like they didn’t want to ever rematch Marquez. that is, until they began to feel very confident of an overwhelming Pacquiao* KO win over a presumably older, smaller, ringworn, and compromised Marquez. they publicly declared so themselves. every fight-fan should revel in the Boxing justice that Marquez forged for himself and every other Fighter with a lesser Name but superior fighting ability. Viva Marquez!

I believe “Gogue” is French for “Douche” and German for “Meaningless”.

Tumbo…. If you followed my posts, because shortly before the fight I went on a 2 week cruise, but leading up to the fight I was leaning harder and harder to Marquez.. Especially on the threads where Marquez’s strength training and conditioning programs were discussed and Roach was becoming apoplectic.. I pointed out the many aspects favorable to JMM that I discussed after the fight..

Posted December 29, 2012 4:17 am 


There were a ton of bad decisions as usual … Take your pick.

That’s why JMM was looking for the KO shot from the bell… He was glued in with that right hand and wasn’t about to let the opportunity slip. He wasn’t thinking about punch stats.. Just don’t get nailed with anything too bad and don’t go to sleep on the killer opening that is likely to come sometime during the 12 rounds, given how aggressive Pac was being … and the chances MP was taking.. After all Pac did promise a KO.

worst decision was Tim Bradley over Manny Pacquiao, easy

TARK, like i said, you are clearly in the now and present today but you were swooning along with the rest of them yesterday but, whatever. you can see clearly now: Marquez Is Greater. Mission Accomplished. the rivalry is OVER . . . Viva Marquez!

Tumbo…, I was hoping Pacquiao would win the 4th.. Like everybody else I wanted to see the Mayweather-Pacquiao Super Fight at LONG LONG LOONG LAST.. But I always said I thought Pac lost all 3 previous fights to Marquez.. JMM staged a brilliant comeback after being down 4 points in the first fight.. He closed the show late in the 2nd fight.. He stayed off the canvas and landed the harder, cleaner, and more effective punches in the 3rd fight.. JMM wasn’t going for points in the 4th fight. He was out for the kill.. He knew Pac inside, outside, upside, downside, and between the layers.. He had Pac scoped out to the nth degree. He knew Pacquiao was a great fighter who could keep things close on the scorecards—therefore he planned to put Pac OUT.. An all or nothing strategy takes the fight out of the judge’s hands–a crafty veteran move. JMM figured he was going to get the short end of the stick again … because May-Pac was closer than ever and he was ITW.

bottomline is that this “W” had ZERO to do with what Pacquiao* did or didn’t do and 100% with what Marquez had developed, planned, and executed. even now you former Pacquiao* disciples are desperately trying to figure out a way for giving Pacquiao* credit(?) for losing a fight that Marquez won. truly pathetic.

oh brother, TARK? talk about a delayed-reaction to the obvious? you were detailing the exact opposite at this time last year and have been one of St. Pacquiao’s* most ardent “expert” supporters all-along. besides, what “divided attention” are you talking about? beyond photo-ops and talk-show appearances, Pacquiao* has only been dividing his attention between bible-thumping and Boxing. otherwise, even in his promotional prime, he’s always been a lazy, easily-distracted,gambling, womanizing, carousing, and one-dimensional puncher guided by a trainer who has only ever produced one-dimensional (albeit ready-made) punchers NOT versatile or adaptable boxers. of course, i’ve been trying to explain this to the likes of You for over two years now(?). it’s good to see that Marquez’s KO of Pacquiao* finally jolted your system back into reality, i.e., St. Pacquiao* is the product of great matchmaking; Roach has NEVER been a particularly bright or versatile trainer; and Marquez Is and has ALways been Greater. Btw, something else you apparently missed in their most recent and legacy-defining bout: Marquez eschewed the platter and instead busted into Pacquiao’s* pantry and helped himself to all the P4P prestige and ATG ring-glory he wanted. the rivalry is OVER.

Marquez had won 2/3 rounds going into the 6th and if he had only scored a KD in that round the fight would’ve been dead-even with momentum in Marquez’s favor. only a boxing-ignorant Pactard would count Marquez out of 12-round fight, as early as the 6th round, over a bloody nose(?!). fortunately, the entire topic is moot, thanks to Marquez utterly DESTROYING Pacquiao* with the Sock FELT around the world. the rivalry is OVER. Marquez is Greater. Viva Marquez!

Sual Alverez would destroy Pacman but Pacman wont fight a young top fighter in their prime unless hes another arum fighter he will go after Marquez at 40 or another legend past their prime.

Arum promotions is the worst promotor the Bradley vs Pacquiao fight booth arums fighters biggest controversial fight the only winner was arum $$$$$ Pacqman should have left him and started his own promotions like the great Delahoya and Mayweather.

Ricky Hatton was a a good boxer not great not known for good defense so was a much bigger acommplishment to beat former pound per pound ex champion Pacpuiao.

If the criteria to determine promoter of the year is money made, perhaps Golden Boy wins, but if the prize is based on promoting the sport, putting together the most interesting fights ad benefitting athletes and fans, Golden Boy would probably be last in the list. The arrival of Golden Boy to the big time has meant the demise of some of the biggest fights in the sport, an increase in overprotection and overbuilding of their fighters, inflated records and the end of fights between opposing promoters. Thanks to GBoy boxing looks more and more like MMA, where the promoters run the show and create their own “leagues”.

Posted December 28, 2012 12:15 pm 


No…….How about Hatton…….

The Marquez KO of former superstar Pacman should be KO of the decade a superior boxer at the end of his career demolishes Pacman something Pacman could not do win decisively this fight was for the title FIGHTER OF THE DECADE.

Most overrated fighter : Saul Alvarez ? Kid is really special according to Gogue, but his promoter, GBP, is over protecting him and treating us and the opposition like idiots. Promoter of the year ? The very same one, GBP ! Thats pretty funny.

If he had not knocked out Pacq based on the rest of his years work he would not even be considered..Other fighters have k.od opponents in similar fashion over the years and got nothing

Posted December 28, 2012 3:58 am 


JMM should not get the fighter of the yr. , he was bloodied with a broken nose and was about to throw the towel if not for that knock out punch in the 6th. Nonito Donaire should have been a better choice. A single punch should not be the main criteria in choosing the fighter of the yr. He would not even come close to 2nd and 3rd.

Posted December 28, 2012 3:45 am 


Marquez won’t make fighter of this decade—he’s 39.

His win wasn’t surprising—given the fact that he gave Pacquiao increasing problems over their previous 3 fights … given the fact that Pacquiao divides his attention between Boxing, his various businesses, his celebrity appearances, and his duties as a congressman … and given the fact that Roach gives terrible advice in the corner, seems more fuzzy headed than ever, and seems behind on the curve when adjustments in tactics and strategy are needed.. Roach never seemed confident about this fight, even voicing his concerns about it repeatedly, and that never helps your fighter’s confidence… Roach and Pacquiao practically handed this fight to Marquez on a platter.

Posted December 28, 2012 2:58 am 


Marquez is not only Fighter of the year but he’s also has an early lead for Fighter of the Decade…Someone is going to have to score a knockout over the #1 P4P Fighter in the World to Top him or defeat a list of Top 10 P4Pers.

Posted December 27, 2012 7:46 pm 


This guy ever hear of Nonito Donaire?
