Here are 30 articles from around the web on the topic of Pacquiao, Marquez, etc. The discussion is slowing down a little — but there still a lot of things being written as the controversy over the close decision continues.

Here’s a video showing all the instances of “Marquez stepping on Pacquiao’s foot” that have become a hot topic of conversation among Pacquiao fans and on some of the boxing blogs. One thing to keep in mind when viewing it is that unintentional head butts and unintentional stepping on the opponents’ foot are both fairly […]
First, thank you for all that you have done to elevate the spirits of a nation, and to inspire boxing and sportsfans worldwide. I remember years ago when I first became aware of you and your amazing talents. I recall thinking at the time that you very well might rise to the very […]
The Pacquiao-Marquez III official scorecards are out and it’s always interesting in a fight like this to see exactly how many rounds were unanimous, and how many involved split judgment by the judges. In the fight tonight, the judges were unanimous in the their scoring in the following rounds: 1, 3, 5, 6, 7. All […]
Much will be written in coming days about the just-concluded trilogy bout between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez in which Pacquiao escaped with a split decision, prompting Marquez and his trainer Nacho Berestain to once again claim they’ve been robbed. Having just conducted an exhausting review of the first two fights (see
When I took Pacquiao-Marquez I and broke it down via a “Preponderance of Evidence” scorecard that correlated the judges’ round by round cards; compubox round by round stats; and intangibles, I didn’t quite know what I was getting into. It took me two nights and a morning to get it done. Now it’s fight […]

As the November 12 trilogy bout between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez draws closer, it’s only natural to think about their previous fights and want to revisit them — after all, only 1 point separates them on the judge’s scorecards after 24 rounds of epic boxing. A number of boxing journalists and bloggers have […]
I finally found a video clip of Floyd Mayweather’s post-fight rant against Manny Pacquiao and I have to say, watching it is quite a bit more revealing than just reading the words. This is a few minutes before Mayweather burst into tears and you can already hear the catch in his voice that’s a clue […]
The Mayweather Ortiz fight is over in bizarre fashion, producing a moment second only to Mike Tyson biting a chunk out of Evander Holyfield’s ear in terms of outlandishness. Although Mayweather was the author of the bizarreness, to be sure, the sequence started with Ortiz head-butting Mayweather in apparent frustration as he pummeled Mayweather in […]
The just concluded promotional tour that saw Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez travel from Manila, to the US, then Mexico City, has prompted a flurry of articles (most, but not all, by Filipino writers) to the effect that Manny was welcomed with an open embrace by Mexicans, who showed him as much love as […]
The Inquirer has an article that they picked up from the Cebu Daily News by Malou Guanzon Apolisok on the The Pacquiao Effect and whether or not it’s a good idea to have Pacquiao as the country’s tourism ambassador, as has been proposed in Congress. Having spent some considerable time and effort back in the […]
Marquez’ one-side defeat of Michael Katsidis has set the stage for an epic trilogy bout between boxing Superman Manny Pacquiao and his possible “kryptonite”, Juan Manuel Marquez.
Part 1 of Mike Costello’s Manny Pacquiao Audio Documentary on BBC is out now and I’ve embedded in below at the end of this brief post. In it Costello covers his arrival in Manila, takes a visit to the Basilica of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo where he says “I’ve never seen anything like this […]
It has been inspirational to read what Filipinos from all over the world have written in response to What We Can Learn From the Empathy, Humility, and Grace of Manny Pacquiao — 717 responses on this blogsite alone and thousands more on FaceBook and elsewhere. Some comments have moved me to tears — others […]
ccording to Top Rank President Bob Arum, the longrunning CBS news icon 60 minutes will begin taping a segment on Manny Paquiao this week, following the Filipino pound-4-pound king as he trains at Freddie Roach’s Wildcard Gym in Hollywood in preparation for his March 13 bout with tough Ghanian Joschua Clottey in Jerry Jones’ Cowbody Stadium in Dallas.
It’s worth giving consideration to the possibility that a century of American betrayal and bullying of the Philippines may have had much to do with Manny Pacquiao’s unwillingness to bow completely to Mayweather’s demands.
Top Rank Promotions has just announced on its Facebook page that Manny Pacquiao will fight top welterweight Joshua Clottey on March 13. The announcement comes in the aftermath of the collapse of the mediation efforts by former Judge Daniel Weinstein to achieve an agreement between the camps of Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr for a […]
Good news for fight fans who’ve been on a rollercoaster ride all through the holidays as the on-again, off-again Manny Pacquiao–Floyd Mayweather superfight went from a done deal to no deal to a lawsuit and now, finally, mediation with the same Santa Monica based mediator who unsnarled the previous problems between Top Rank […]
