I know most of you have been into all the the Marquez Counter-punching hype.
But what most people failed to appreciate is how Manny's defenses ware in great display that night.
Marquez is a tough counter-puncher, everybody knows that. The consequence of going inside the Marquez trap could mean K.O.(his past few fights can support that). Manny did a lot of adjustment to cope up with that. He's not a boxing GOD that cannot get hurt you know. I admired how he was so successful in blocking (and probably one of the reason why he won) and how tough his chin was for surviving those Marquez powerful clean shots. If those were just ordinary boxers, they could have went down already.
Manny of course did also think during the fight, he's not just only a volume puncher you know.
with the pac vs mayweather, for me mayweather has still the advantage because of his physical size and he really knows how to use it well.. :)
But manny is still unpredictable, we never know he might do something explosive.
by d way this is a manny fanpost, haters are also of course free to object..
** Im a filipino and my home is just several hundred kilometers from manny's house. Let me point out that we dont treat him like a god here. its funny how exaggeration really works. We filipinos love american boxing ever since before Muhammad Ali..
Tyson, lewis, ODLH, morales, holyfield, are very famous names here before pacman bloomed out and it is just overjoying to see one of our countrymen sharing the spotlight with them. Yes he is our hero and I'm rest assured that he is also one of the savior of the famous american boxing.
