As expected, Marquez and Pacman were eyeing for an early KO as Pacman got floored down in the third then bouncing back to give Marquez a dose of his own medicine. Before the 6th round, Pacquiao was leading but before the 6th round ended, both exchanged big blows until one hit ended it all. Pacquiao hit the canvas face down at 2:59 of that round.
The referee waved to end the fight and Marquez was celebrating at the sold-out MGM building.
