Manny Pacquiao

Sticking It to Marquez

with Post-Fight Song

11/13/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It wasn't enough for Manny Pacquaio to beat Juan Manuel Marquez in a close decision last night in Las Vegas -- later on in the evening, Manny took the stage at the House of Blues and performed "La Bamba" ... perhaps the most famous song from Marquez's native Mexico.

Soy capitan indeed.

Pacman has nothing to crow about given his mediocre performance. He should be in hiding.

For anyone who has followed Pacquiao before during his many performances with his band, knows that he's been singing this song regularly for several years now. It has nothing to do with JMM. TMZ drew this conclusion simply because it's a Spanish song that Manny sang after his victory over JMM?

if Marquez really wants to win 100% against PACMAN. ..-He (JMM) should have ATTACKED then FORWARD but instead waiting for the opportunity to counter and add to that , HE was Ducking and back pedaling a bit afraid to get knock out by PACMAN.

Manny and Roach GAME PLAN PREVAILS in this fight. Let me teach the world so people will understand what really happened: The Game plan was "To COUNTER A COUNTER PUNCHER". Let Marquez COME IN and taste his own style. Manny is so COOL this time. He never forgets his game plan and stick on it up to 12rds. Marquez on the other hand is great and ALSO following his game plan too, to do COUNTER Punching as usual. He did landed some jabs and power shots but most of them NEVER did clearly STOP Manny (not that painful in short cause the Pac is still alive n kicking during exchanges), also some punches of JMM were just whossing in the air or landing on Pacquaio's arms, elbows, or gloves. Manny and Roach plan is to MAKE the COUNTER puncher become an OFFENSIVE fighter because he is not a natural offensive fighter. Its a WEAKNESS in short. Note that JMM is so HESITANT to ATTACK while PACQUIAO is signalling him to Come! Come ! Come!

MARQUEZ was obviously shaken or even almost got knock out by PACMAN every time "PAC" connected a good combinations of POWER Punches. ...- Power punching, moving forward, aggressiveness and ability to shaken or KNOCK OUT your opponent are the ingredients to win in BOXING. ...(-NOT BACK PEDALING! or just WAITING to COUNTER ! )....-these are the basis that those 2 JUDGES who are in Favor of PACQUIAO

It is understandable why many claimed Marquez won third fight against Manny. First, the Filipino did not knock him down. Second, the fight, as viewed from the TV, showed more footage of Marquez hitting Manny from an angle. Third, the audience thought that a backward step for Manny when Juan threw a punch wa*****. And, fourth, Manny's aggressiveness was not as contagious as in his previous fights. But the truth is boxing is not just about who gets the loudest boos or claps, it also has something to do with the volume of punches thrown and found their marks. Given the vantage point the judges always have in scoring boxing bouts, it points to reason the scores were reasonable. That the scores were close is not even an argument that Marquez was robbed or that Manny lost. in truth, Pacquiao won but he did not do it as convincingly as before.

The only reason why people watch UFC is cause of biased people like you who ruin the sport of boxing. In a close fight like that, no way in hell should JMM get the win. It's always the best, not the challenger who gets the call. It's how the game works and it's part of the challenge that challengers face. Just like when Michael Jordan would always get the favored call from refs. If you fight the best, gotta do better than that. Quit sour-graping you b!tch.
