Posted By on December 9, 2012

Juan Manuel Marquez avenged his two previous defeats to Manny Pacquiao by producing a devastating sixth-round knockout in Las Vegas.

Both men touched the canvas early in the fight, however it was Mexican veteran Marquez who ended the fight in style with a crunching right hand over the top at the end of the sixth.

It was a stunning finish from Marquez, who had been dropped in the fifth round himself after Pacquiao caught him with a powerful left.

The victory improves Marquez’s record to 55-6-1 and leaves Filipino former welterweight king Pacquiao’s career in major doubt after back-to-back defeats. [full story…]
