Official Judging
Glenn Trowbridge 116 - 112
Dave Moretti 115 - 113
Robert Hoyle 114 - 114

They've fought 36 rounds, with still no closure. Juan Manuel Marquez and his team were so incensed with the decision, feeling that they had come in with an actionable game plan and executed it to perfection, surprisingly outlanding Manny Pacquiao and beating him to the punch in exchanges despite Manny's advantage in speed, that they stormed out of the ring, eschewing the normal interview with HBO. Manny, for his part, indicated that he felt he clearly beat Marquez.

Comments

Decent fight, it could have been better and to be honest I was a little let down by both fighters, I think Marquez did the wrong thing by dropping his work rate in the late rounds, Pacquiao looked uncomfortable before the bell for the first round, he really wasn't himself in this fight. I think than many is a class above for really but Marquez has always been stylistically wrong for Pacquiao.

I find it strange that a sizeable amount of people refer to this fight as a robbery. Maybe it's because Marquez won the 2 clearest rounds of the fight (5 and 7). I thought it was a very close fight, probably the hardest to score out of the 3 that went the distance.

To be honest, it doesn't surprise me, at all, I think a possible explanation could be the issue that many boxing followers out there don't understand certain vital aspects of the sport, subjectivity, evidently being one of them. Bias could also explain a lot, and realistically, when fights like this are revisited (fights like this meaning fights that involved Manny Pacquiao, and ended in a legitimately disputed decision), that is only going to esculate from now on, after his ridiculous, immoral, unintelligent comments, he's not flavour of the month, to say the least, irrelevant?, maybe, but that's what people are like, and from people who don't analyse boxing at all, as well as showing only a casual interest in the sport, we can't expect much if anything more.

This is one of those very,very,very rare fights that me and A LOT (most people on this site by the looks of it) have it a draw and that it is the fairest outcome. Neither fighter really "won" the fight. Marquez was "going to win" the fight but let Pacquiao come on. Was an even fight.

I also scored the fight a draw, but there is a perfectly valid and justified case to be made that Manny Pacquiao deserved to win the fight by a point or two, and I can say the same for Juan Manuel Marquez, in my opinion, 6 scorecards for this fight (114-114 ×4, and 115-115 ×2), mean the same in terms of which outcome is the fairest option as a conclusion the fight, as 6 scorecards for the fight (115-113 in favour of Pacquiao ×3, and 115-113 in favour of Marquez ×3), because in the second scenario, you could make the argument that seeing as the two fighters have approximately the same amount of people believing they won the fight for valid reasons, a draw is the fairest outcome (in my opinion, your point was equally valid), do you see what I mean?

There are some out there who would argue that when a fighter achieves a victory that some could argue he didn't deserve, and the decision is disputed, then there shouldn't even be an official winner, and when it gets this tantalisingly close, the fight should be ruled a draw, this rule is very unrealistic, and it would create a lot of disappointment in the sport of boxing, I also feel it would cause some to miss out on big opportunities, so I would be strongly against this idea, even if it was a possibility for the future.

Yeah there should not be a rule that basically requires a fight to be a draw if someone disagrees with a close decision. Only in VERY exceptional circumstances do I expect a commission take action against an official decision that needs to be changed. I will take one of the most well known ones. Pernell Whitaker vs Julio Cesar Chavez. The draw was unjustifiable and giving every and I mean every possible round you could to Chavez the fight would still be 115-113 to Whitaker. I think the real score was 116-112 to 118-110. In that case unofficial, respected judges should re-watch the fight and if the score comes out vastly different the decision should be changed. That's my opinion of course.
