Pacquiao Vs. Mayweather on May 5, 2012


Updates:
The possibility of boxing’s richest fight ironically came up in the aftermath of Manny Pacquiao’s controversial win as he challenged unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. to a showdown the world has long wanted to see.


“Let’s make it happen on May 5,” Pacquiao told sports analyst Max Kellerman inside the ring as the Mexican crowd loudly protested the majority decision favoring the Filipino champion over Juan Manuel Marquez at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas last Saturday. 
 
“Let’s give the people a good fight. Let’s get it on,” said Pacquiao. The 32-year-old pound-for-pound champion stretched his win streak to 15 fights with the win, but lacked the overpowering form he had shown in seven fights since a previous controversial triumph over Marquez in 2008.

Mayweather, through adviser Leonard Ellerbe, announced two weeks ago that he would return to the ring on May 5 against the “little fella,” which should be no other than Pacquiao. If that fight happens, both fighters can make no less than $50 million each.

Promoter Bob Arum dismissed Mayweather having already set a date and site for the fight and Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer, said he has no business trying to set terms. “I’m kind of tired of Floyd. Shut up and fight or don’t,” Roach said. “He wants to dictate everything. Who is he to make the rules? Then he sends his gopher out to make a speech. Leonard Ellerbe, he’s a gopher. Floyd, speak up. Coming from Ellerbe, who gives a damn?”

After outpointing Marquez, Pacquiao said that he’s open to another fight with the Mexican but called on Mayweather’s name as well. He said he’s ready to take on any fighter his promoter puts in front of him. “It depends on Bob Arum,” he said. Twice, negotiations for the fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather bogged down. The fight may or may not happen, but what’s positive at least for now is Pacquiao calling Mayweather’s name.


Fourth fight possible
 
Pacquiao needed 28 stitches to close a cut over his right eye suffered in a 10th-round head-butt and had two judges who gave him the final round scored it the other way, the fight would have been scored a draw.

Arum dismissed Marquez’s talk that he might retire, saying the likely $10-million payday for a fourth fight could change his mind and that he would try to stage a fourth Marquez-Pacquiao fight next May. Roach said he felt Marquez deserved a rematch before the pound-for-pound king faces Mayweather. If nothing else, the possibility of turning back to Marquez would give Arum some leverage in talks with Mayweather’s camp about terms for a long-sought fight that figures to bring each fighter about $50 million – if it happens.

Mayweather also faces an evidence hearing next month on felony charges of grand larceny, coercion and robbery from a 2010 incident with former girlfriend Josie Harris and two children. He faces up to 34 years in prison.


Money matters most
Just as Pacquiao’s side wants Mayweather to call out the Filipino star, Mayweather’s co-promoter, Oscar de la Hoya, told the Los Angeles Times that he basically wants to see Pacquiao call out Mayweather. “Mayweather wants the fight. If Manny wants Floyd, there’s nothing stopping that fight from happening,” de la Hoya told the newspaper. “Pacquiao fights for the people and the people want him to step up and fight Mayweather.”

Marquez, who claims three wins over Pacquiao but was handed a draw and two losses by judges, also dropped a 12-round decision to Mayweather in 2009 after the American ended a long hiatus. He said Mayweather’s defensive style could give Pacquiao trouble, creating a fight lacking the excitement Marquez helped make. “Commercially it will be a big fight but technically I think the style of Mayweather would get very complicated for Pacquiao,” Marquez said. Commercially figures to be what will matter most.

After the controversial 2008 fight, Marquez begged Arum for a rematch but Arum said no, waiting for a more profitable time. Even Pacquiao agreed that was the right move, in some ways undercutting the idea for a fourth fight now. “I don’t think the people were going to watch again right away,” the Filipino boxing sensation said last Tuesday about the timing of a rematch after the 2008 fight. “Boxing is a business. You have to make money.”

Mayweather might like his chances more against Pacquiao after seeing the Filipino hero struggle for the first time since he faced Marquez in 2008, but boxing history offers a cautionary tale about such judgments. Evander Holyfield lost to Riddick Bowe in 1995 and struggled to beat Bobby Czyz in May of 1996, helping entice Don King into booking Holyfield as a foe for Mike Tyson. Holyfield stopped Tyson in the 11th round in late 1996 and won a 1997 rematch, the infamous “bite fight,” by disqualification after Tyson bit Holyfield’s ears twice, tearing out a chunk of flesh the first time.


Pac-man: ‘I clearly won’
 
Looking back at the Marquez fight, which could have really gone either way depending on how you saw it, Pacquiao felt “it was very clear I won the fight.” It was a fight that was too close to call, and the judges gave it to Pacquiao, one of them scoring it a draw (114-114), and the two others calling it for the reigning WBO welterweight champion (115-113 and 116-112).

Marquez felt he was robbed in the same manner he was robbed the first two times they fought in 2004 and 2008. But ring experts close to the ring agreed that Pacquiao was the aggressor and did more to win the fight. “Marquez played it too safe and that was a big, big mistake,” said Emanuel Steward, who worked the HBO panel for the fight witnessed by a crowd of 16,368, and millions more from around the globe.

“I clearly won the fight,” said Pacquiao. The Pacquiao bus left Las Vegas for Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. It was half empty, and minus the Pacquiao couple, the boxer and his wife Jinkee, that normally occupied the front seats. Pacquiao decided to stay behind in Vegas to cool off with his wife, and according to his adviser, Mike Koncz, they’re scheduled to be back in Los Angeles Monday (today in Manila) because there’s a Hennessy photo-shoot lined up for the Filipino champion.

Koncz said he hasn’t spoken to Pacquiao about his immediate plans inside the ring, but said in a week or two there should be something worth telling. It could involve Mayweather or Marquez or anyone else who’s out there and willing to fight.

Round by round analysis of Pacquiao vs. Marquez III fight


Manny Pacquiao beats Juan Manuel Marquez by Majority Decision (114-114, 115-113, 116-112)

Round 1

This fight is underway. It's a raucous atmosphere in Las Vegas with the fans supporting Marquez, and Pacquiao lands an early left hand to Marquez's nose that causes the fans to ooh and ah. A good flurry of punches they both connect with and and then more from Pacquiao. A good first round that goes to Pacquiao, 10-9.

Round 2

After a fast-paced first round both men are a little slower early in the second, perhaps trying to avoid making the first mistake in the fight. Marquez is trying to go to Pacquiao's body, but Pacquiao doesn't seem to be feeling anything. Pacquiao is moving quickly and punching crisply. Now Marquez lands a body shot and an uppercut. Pacquiao connects with a right hook. It's a close second round that goes to Pacquiao, 10-9.

Round 3

Marquez lands a short uppercut. Pacquiao's movement seems to be frustrating Marquez, but Pacquiao isn't landing a lot of punches -- he's more active with his footwork than he is with his hands. A hard right hook from Pacquiao connects to Marquez's temple, and I'll give the third round to Pacquiao, 10-9.

Round 4

Pacquiao lands a good left hook and then backs away and makes Marquez miss. Pacquiao comes in wildly and gets off balance but Marquez can't take advantage. Marquez lands two to the body effectively. Pacquiao lands a left and Marquez lands a right, and it's another close round but this time I give a slight edge to Marquez, 10-9.

Round 5

Marquez is continuing to go to the body, but Pacquiao is mostly blocking those punches. Now Marquez lands a big right to Pacquiao's head, and that one has Pacquiao reeling. Marquez with a good left hand now. Marquez is starting to get through and hurting Pacquiao. By far the best round of the fight for Marquez, 10-9.

Round 6

Pacquiao charges inside, Marquez makes him pay with a right hand counter, but then Pacquiao comes right back with a hard left of his own. A great exchange. Pacquiao lands a right hook and Marquez with a left hook. The best round of the fight so far goes to Pacquiao, 10-9.

Round 7

Marquez lands a very big right hand that backs Pacquiao up. Now another hard shot from Marquez. Pacquiao appears to have some blood around his mouth. Now Pacquiao knocks Marquez back with a shot to the head. Marquez lands a left and then Pacquiao swings and misses. Good round for Marquez, 10-9.

Round 8

Marquez is countering very effectively and lands a good right cross. A good right hand to the head from Marquez. Pacquiao may be a little frustrated right now because he hasn't been tested the way Marquez is testing him in a long time. Now Pacquiao wades in and lands a left hand, but Marquez hits him right back. Another good round for Marquez, 10-9.

Round 9

Marquez throws a 1-2 that Pacquiao blocks, then Marquez lands one to the back of Pacquiao's head. Marquez lands a couple of good combinations. Now they're back-and-forth brawling with Marquez appearing to get the better of some exchanges, only to have Pacquiao swarm and knock Marquez off balance. Pacquiao explodes in the final seconds of the round and that may have been enough to give the round for Pacquiao, 10-9.

Round 10

Both guys came out of their corners looking a little bit worn out after that incredible flurry to end the ninth round. A couple of furious exchanges now which have Pacquiao backing up and gesturing that Marquez hit him with a head butt. Pacquiao has a cut over his right eye that he seems to think came from a head butt, but the referee hasn't ruled on that. Pacquiao appears to be frustrated and Marquez has been the aggressor in this round. Marquez, 10-9.

Round 11

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has confirmed between rounds that Pacquiao's cut came from an accidental clash of heads. Pacquiao lands a big left to Marquez's head. Marquez looked hurt by that one. They exchange hard rights, then Marquez lands a left as well. I think Pacquiao has connected on a few more punches than Marquez has in this crucial round and I give it to Pacquiao, 10-9.

Final Round

Marquez's corner is telling him that he's winning the fight, and Freddie Roach seems to think Marquez is winning, too, because he told Pacquiao he needs to knock Marquez down in this round. I'm not so sure. Good left hand from Pacquiao. Marquez seems to be playing it safe, which is no surprise considering that his corner told him he's winning. Pacquiao's mouthpiece falls out of his mouth which causes a brief respite. Marquez has a big overhand right. Pacquiao goes to the body. Pacquiao with a big left. The fight ends with them toe to toe. I give the 12th to Pacquiao, 10-9.
