Juan Manuel Marquez beats Manny Pacquiao
December 9 , 2012
The fourth fight between Juan Manuel Marquez and Manny Pacquiao on Saturday managed to produce a definite outcome.
A battered Marquez knocked out Pacquiao in the closing seconds of the sixth round at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The 39-year-old Mexican sent Pacquiao down with a right hand with one second left in the round.
Pacquiao (54-5-2) fell face down after taking the direct blow to the bridge of his nose and remained motionless for several minutes as Marquez (55-6-1) celebrated the first definitive victory in a series that dates back to 2004.
The first fight ended in a draw. Marquez then went on to lose a split decision in 2008 and drop a majority decision in November 2011.
