Marquez surprised the Philippines boxing champ with an overhand right in the 3rd round, sending the Filipino to the canvas for the first time ever in their 8-year saga.
Prior to Sunday’s fight, the two ring warriors have already figured in three close bouts.
Pacquiao scored three-1st round knockdowns against Marquez in 2004 only to settle for a controversial draw. He won his next two bouts against the Mexican in 2008 and 2011 via close decisions.
