Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez have met in the ring time and time again. On December 8, the two fighters will meet one more time in an apparent effort to determine who the better boxing champion is.
The first three Pacquiao-Marquez fights were memorable. The initial meeting in 2004 ended in a draw. Take two saw Pacquiao emerge with a split-decision win, aided by a third-round knockdown. Pacquiao-Marquez III was supposed to be the “deciding” bout, but – despite Pacquiao winning on two of the three scorecards – the third part in the trilogy ended being anything but decisive.
Each fight was close enough that many boxing fans and experts can reasonably argue the outcomes. Some believe Marquez should have emerged victorious in all three. Pacquiao wants to prove the critics wrong. Marquez wants to get his win.
For boxing fans and the fighters, a knockout for either boxer would be a great way to end this historic rivalry between the two future Hall of Fame boxers.
