Juan Manuel Marquez Defeats Manny Pacquiao via Sixth-Round Knockout

If the months of anticipation and prior three fights didn't didn't clue you in, Marquez vs. Pacquiao IV was going to be a thriller. The presumed final chapter of the saga was a roller coaster, but in the end, Marquez came out on top in thrilling fashion. The Mexican great knocked out Pac-Man in the final two seconds of the sixth round with an impressive overhand right counter. Marquez was knocked down in the prior round and accomplished this with a possibly broken nose.

This is Marquez's first win in his four fights against Pacquiao--they came to a draw the first fight and Juan lost the consequent two by decision. Marquez improves to 55-6-1 with the victory.

Viva Mexico, indeed.
