Pacquiao fight ends in tie

I wanted to slug that commentator on Channel 9 griping about the judges’ scoring which resulted in a tie between Pacquiao and Marquez. One judge had Marquez leading in points, another, Pacquiao, result with third judge: a tie. Leave it at that! Nothing more unsportsmanlike than griping about the judging.

    My bets are on everyone wanting a rematch. New Thrilla in Manila!

    Besides, after his initial killer punches, Pacquiao started boxing pretty badly, whether because of his foot and hand injuries or what.

    With due respect,I cannot accept a “leave-it-like-that” attitude about the pacquiao-marquez bout. One of the judges made a 115-110 score in favor of pacquiao and the other judge made the same score in favor of marquez. The oldest among the judges made a 113-113 score. I cannot accept this coincidence.

    It has been a good fight for the them but not for all Filipinos. It is a clear showing that they are trying to save marquez from ultimate humiliation! Mabuhay si Pacquiao! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

    It wasn’t a good fight for Pacquiao at all. Maybe he deserves to win for the three first-round knockdowns, just as Marquez deserves it for outboxing the Pacman for the rest of the match.

    But Quinito Henson’s point on the third judge’s 10-7 score for the first round instead of a 10-6 has me wondering.

    Baka tayo lang ang niloloko, they all stand to earn more if they have a rematch. 🙂
