The logic is very simple....... Better to be Hattonized than Margaritorized....Less round less damage...
What you think guys, is Manny right this timTe?
PAC said, being totally knocked out, in hindsight, was better than damaging blows!
Wait, hold on there... Is this true?
Is he now the "thinking boxer", Kung ganun ang logic niya?
Maybe PAC sees something, we don't? Is he right?
Is it better that " it seems like a lucky punch " with PAC fully asleep,- than an image of him
being beaten up by JMM, helpless, till the referee stops it?
Would the latter be a worse image for the Republic of the Philippines?
It was Marquez who was showing more severe damage, it was the end of the round so the comparison is not even close. The respite in between rounds would give more time to Manny to clear his head since he claims he was in great condition for that fight, while the damage to Marquez's nose would still be there for the duration of the fight, and could only get worse if the referee or his corner doesn't stop it.
It's Manny again trying to rationalize. Both Hatton and Margarito were being beaten by Pacquiao in a lopsided manner. This wasn't the case in this fight between Marquez and Pacquiao, in fact, it was Marquez who was on the receiving end for most of that round except for the last minute boner by Pacquiao.
I can't get the gist of what you wrote. There is this interview published today where PACMAN said it was "In effect a blessing that he wasn't able to get back up". If he wasn't that bad a shape ( I.e asleep),.. got back up, the damage could be worse. So PAC was thankful for it. Some saying he is rationalizing.
But I agree with you, Marquez would have quit in next round. pAc's old form was back too.
Anyways, it was 1 second to go, bell would have saved him too.
If he got back up and there was a lot of time remaining, this might be true. But boxers are superbly conditioned athletes especially at this elite level and if it is true that Pacquaio was in shape , the rest in between rounds would have been enough for some sort of recuperation on his part. And if this was not enough, Pacquiao's footspeed is way better than Marquez and he could have danced his way for the most part of the seventh round. Moreover Marquez is a counterpuncher so he is not really that adept in chasing someone like Pacquiao around the ring.
Mathebula was badly hurt by Donaire in the fourth round but the bell saved the African who rose shakily and was able to recover in the succeeding rounds. And if you agree with me that Marquez would have quit in the next round what blessing is Manny talking about here?
