By Brad Cronick: Manny Pacquiao’s career isn’t over just because he was stopped in the 6th round by Juan Manuel Marquez last Saturday night. This is something that happens in boxing especially when fighters are going all out looking to score a knockout like Pacquiao was in the 6th round when he got knocked flat by a right hand from Marquez.
If Pacquiao can come back from this and win his next [...]
By Marc Livitz: Boxing received a cattle prod to the backside on Saturday evening and amazingly, it took but one bundle of dynamite from a certain "Dinamita".

By Reni M. Valenzuela: Just as the towel is being readied to be thrown in by the corner of Juan Manuel Marquez any time from round five when he dropped to the floor, then came in the shock of the great fall of a good man and a great boxer in the winding split seconds of the succeeding round. What went wrong?
Why has this came about in the quadrilogy when Manny Pacquiao appeared invincible during [...]

By Dave Cacciatore, photo: Chris Farina - Top Rank - The fourth edition of this rivalry far exceeded most boxing fans expectations. Usually a measured defensive fighter in his biggest encounters, JMM showed one punch power in stopping the Filipino superstar.

By Rob Smith: Juan Manuel Marquez said he wanted to take the judges out of it the equation this time and he sure did do a good job of that by knocking Manny Pacquiao out cold with a single right hand late in the 6th that sent Pacquiao down flat on the canvas face first tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

By Bill Phanco: Juan Manuel Marquez is really looking forward to getting Manny Pacquiao back in the ring tonight to beat him for a fourth time, although technically this will be Marquez’s first real win over the Filipino star. Marquez feels he won all three previous fights with Manny and tonight will be just the icing on the cake with him finally getting acknowledged as the winner by the judges.
By Bill Phanco: Floyd Mayweather Sr. doesn’t have a whole lot of interest in tonight’s clash between Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KO’s) and Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO’s), because he says he’s seen too many fights between them in the past where the wrong fighter got his hand raised after the fight.
Speaking with Examiner.com writer Chris Robinson, Mayweather Sr. said “I hope this [...]
