Pacquaio-Marquez post press conference

If there's anything Manny Pacquiao and Manuel Marquez last three fights has taught us was it becomes less entertaining while it ended into more controversial decisions. Marquez means this time when he said, "I'm looking for the knockout," referring to knock out Manny Pacquiao on their fourth fight tonight, December 8 in MGM Grand, Las Vegas.

Both boxers has been tangled in a long storied controversial fights in the past eight years. The first Pacquiao vs. Marquez was super featherweight fight that took place in 2004 that ended in controversial draw after twelve rounds. In the first round, Márquez was knocked down three times by Pacquiao but Márquez showed great heart and bounced back to win the majority of rounds thereafter.

One of the judges later admitted an error on the scorecards, having scored the first round as 10–7 instead of the standard 10–6 in favor of Pacquiao for a three-knockdown round. If the judge had scored the round 10–6 for Pacquiao same as other two judges did, the result would have been a split decision in favor of Pacquiao.

The Pacquiao vs. Marquez rematch happened four years later in 2008 that ended to a very close battle. Both fighters slugged out with cuts as Márquez landed most accurate punches to Pacquiao, however, the decisive factor proved to be a third-round knockdown of Marquez, from straight left of Pacquiao that caught Marquez off guard. Pacquiao won via split decision that angered Mexican fans who taught Marquez won.

Pacquiao and Márquez squared for the third time in November 2011, this time in welterweight which is way higher when the two last met in super featherweight division. Pacquiao won via majority decision but unpopular decision over Marquez. Pacquiao encountered with boos in the arena and stirred negative reaction from the media noting that Marquez was clearly robbed over the decision.

Many believed that Pacquiao has lost the fire in the ring and failed to make a statement in settling all doubts after both fighters met for the third time. Yet, tonight Pacquiao and Márquez will meet for the fourth time and maybe the last. Check this page later for Pacquiao and Márquez live updates, results and highlights.
