The HBO pay-per-view bout between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez continued into the ninth round with Marquez having a somewhat commanding lead on my scorecard at 78-74.
Marquez fires two shots and Pacquiao picks them off. Right hand lands for Marquez. One two combo by Marquez and then he goes body, body, head. This is an incredible performance by a 38-year-old great who no one gave much of a chance.
Right hand by Marquez, Pacquiao with one in return. They're trading and Pacquiao lands a left hand.
Both men get power shots through and they trade. They're flurrying, both men landing hard shots. I am in love with what I am watching right now.
Three punch combo and Manny is firing back. Big uppercut by Marquez and he ducks a return shot. Left hand for Pacquiao and he won his first round in a while on my card.
Round: 10-9 Pacquiao
Fight: 87-84 Marquez
