Marquez KOs Pacquiao in round 6
MANILA, Philippines – It was a stunning end to their fourth match as Mexican warrior Juan Manuel Marquez defeated the people’s champion Manny Pacquiao via knockout in six rounds.
For the first time in four bouts, Marquez registered a victory over his rival, and did so in spectacular, decisive fashion.
After exchanging knockdowns in the third and fifth rounds, Marquez took advantage of Pacquiao’s recklessness when he caught the Filipino with a short right hand late in the sixth round.
The time of the stoppage was 2:59. It was Pacquiao’s first knockout loss since 1999, and his second straight defeat after dropping a decision to Timothy Bradley last June. -- Mornings @ ANC, December 10, 2012
