Re: Pacquiao goes down.

The new grossly obvious muscle development on 38 year old Marquez combined with an increase in speed and power was incredibly obvious. Forget about something as subjective as speed and power. The guy was cut unlike any time in his past. Don't believe it go to youtube and check out any of his fights with Pacquiao before or with Mayweather.

However, the accuracy of the knockout punch was all technical skill by Marquez and bad luck for Pacquiao as he got hit flush with a full power as he was stepping toward it and plus from the angle he was to the punch, even though it was a straight right hand it Manny in the same manner and angle of trajectory of a hook to the jaw or side of the head with full force.

I don't think it was so much of a power shot as it was unfortunate luck for Manny.
There was a LOT of luck going on with that knockout punch for sure. Manny was doing "well" and walked right into that one. Caught it "right on the button" as we use to say. Not a "fan" of either fighter but a fan of quality boxing.

The first knockdown Manny received was a bomb and a half.
