Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley came out for the last round in their fight with Marquez seeming to need a knockout to win, or at least a knockdown to have a chance to win on the scorecards.
Marquez did manage to land an early hard right and again a hard right in the middle of the round. Bradley started circling with his hands down, but at that point Marquez did little to try and take advantage of Bradley's invitation to get hit on the face.
Marquez kept working with jabs and straight rights and then landed some big shots appearing to pull away with the round, but Bradley lands a big shot that sends Marquez stumbling backward and he almost goes down but manages to stay upright.
Round: 10 - 9 Juan Manuel Marquez
Fight: 115 - 113 Timothy Bradley
The official scorecards read as follows:
115-113 Marquez, 115-113 Bradley and 116-112 Bradley
