Sometimes in life, certain people just got your number. Juan Manuel Marquez has Manny Pacquiao's number. After three fights, most of them featuring tighterthanthis rounds, we can say this for sure.

That's no consolation for Marquez, though, who lost a majority decision (scores were 114-114, 115-113, 116-112) to Pacquiao last night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He scored a draw in their first bout, in 2004, and suffered a controversial loss in their 2008 clash. Following this fight, in which it appeared he landed more obvious, clean, hard shots, he cried robbery.

This was a Madoff deal, he implied. Once again, I had my pockets picked.

Was it robbery? No. It wasn't even a slick pickpocket job. A New York detective, viewing this fight, would be of the same mind when investigating a B&E in which the victim left a spare key under the doormat. Sorta serves ya right, would be the implication..

The rounds were close close close, hard to score, and American judges tend to reward the guy who throws more punches. Manny, according to CompuBox stats, threw 578 to the 38-year-old Mexican's 436. He landed more, 176 to 138, as well.

So ... robbery? Marquez now suffers from the boy-who-cried-wolf syndrome. He has backers who agree with him, but others have to shake their head, and point the finger at him. He knows, or should know, that judges aren't masters of subtlety. They often discount the mastery of the counter-puncher, and in American fashion, smile upon the purveyor of brute force. If they do it again, Marquez has to get it through his skull that he needs to throw more than the 32-year-old Pacquiao, to show the judges that he's the better man. Bottom line.
