Round-by-round results from Manny Pacquiao against Juan Manuel Marquez. This post covers the action from round 3.
Round three of the bout between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez saw Pacquiao continue coming forward with constant movement. That movement made Marquez hesitant to throw his hands as he was having trouble getting his timing down.
The straight left hand remained a good weapon for Pacquiao through the round, but Marquez began trying to nullify the movement of Pacquiao.
Then it happened, suddenly Marquez landed a huge looping overhand right that put Pacquaio on the floor. Pacquiao got up but he was still hurt and Marquez bothered him again with a right hand.
For the first time in four fights, Marquez put Pacquiao on the ground and things are suddenly very interesting. And the two men flurried to the bell.
Round: 10-8 Marquez
