Juan Manuel Marquez had his best round in several frames in round nine against Timothy Bradley.
Marquez landed a massive shot that hurt Timothy Bradley and a follow up flurry that seemed to keep Bradley hurt, but then Bradley landed a big right hand that clearly hurt Marquez. The two then slowed down but Marquez was still looking to uncork a power shot to turn the fight around completely.
Marquez backed Bradley into the ropes, Bradley simply clinched him and walked forward to get out of the dangerous position in the ring.
Marquez and Bradley both landed right hands and then both men tangled up with Marquez slipping to the ground, but the referee made the correct ruling that it was simply a slip.
Round: 10 - 9 Timothy Bradley
Fight: 96 - 94 Timothy Bradley
