When big time sporting events happen, we here at the Reed Space go to only the most reputable news source for our sports recap.
All jokes aside though, I was happy that Manny seemed cognisant and alright following the fight. The fight was spectacular, as each of there previous three bouts were. Marquez displayed resilience throughout (especially in the fifth round) and skill. As all counterpunchers do, he bided his time and picked his spots. He came away a winner in a fight where he was a heavy underdog. And for all we know he may retire victorious. Manny on the other hand seems to be slipping. With all his outside interests and a political career that awaits him after boxing, he may not have the same hunger he once did. And what about the fight of our generation between himself and Mayweather? Does that fight happen next year if ever? The one certainty is that boxing fans wouldn’t mind a fifth and final bout between Marquez and Pacquiao. Given what has just happened and the respect these two have for each other, it would just seem natural to settle once and for all one of the greatest rivalries in recent boxing history.
