After a first round that saw both men moving a lot but still feeling out the fight, both came out of the corner a bit more steady and far less twitchy.
Pacquiao was able to land an early counter shot against Marquez, the counterpuncher himself. Pacquiao also landed a left hand followed by Marquez coming back with two shots to the body and one to the head. Pacquiao then got in some hard left hand punches that Marquez was unable to avoid and unable to counter, not a good sign if something doesn't change going forward.
Marquez was able to get in a left hook toward the end of the round as well as a body shot, but for the most part didn't have much success in the round as Pacquiao had some solid success.
Round: 10-9 Pacquiao
Fight: 20-18 Pacquaio
