Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez opened their third fight on HBO pay-per-view from the MGM Grand with the crowd going wild for both men.
Both men opened up pawing with their jabs and trying to get a feel for the fight. Pacquiao eventually started to get it going a little with left hands to the body and the face. Marquez dug in with a left hand to the ribs. The men exchanged shots with Marquez looking to continue working the body and Manny looking for openings to the head.
Marquez closed the round with a flurry to the body but it was probably Pacquiao who got the better of a close round that saw neither man land a ton of punches. Good start to the fight.
Round: 10-9 Pacquiao
