Marquez beat Pacquiao at least once: Floyd Sr.

MANILA, Philippines – Controversial boxing trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. remains convinced that Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez won at least one of his three fights against Filipino ring icon Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao.

Pacquiao and Marquez battled to a draw in their first meeting in 2004, and the Filipino fighter won the 2008 rematch via split decision.

Their trilogy bout last November was even more controversial, with Pacquiao getting the judges' nod anew even though most boxing pundits believe Marquez deserved the victory.

The two fighters will meet anew on December 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, but Mayweather is not looking forward to the fight.

"The only thing that's a shame about these two fighting for the fourth time is Marquez ain't got the nod not one damn time," Mayweather told Fight Hype

"Marquez, I know, won at least one of them damn fights, and a lot of people think he won all of them," he added.

Mayweather could not help but compare Pacquiao's performances against Marquez to that of his son, Floyd Jr., who routed the Mexican over 12 rounds when they fought in 2009.

"It took Floyd one Saturday to embarrass Marquez, and Pacquiao is going on his fourth Saturday with him," he pointed out.

"He (Marquez) didn't beat my son not one second of any round, but he’s about to go in his 48th round with Pacquiao," he added.

Floyd Jr. has not talked about his boxing future since getting released from jail last August, but Mayweather said he can see the end of the road for his son.

"Honestly, I wanna see him get about two more and call it a day," Mayweather said. "January 24th, he will be 36 years and no matter how great you are, time is ticking. I think he fights two more times, dominates his opponents, and walks away."
