The Katsidis fight was a very tactical inside fight which reminded me a lot of Chavez except that Marquez was countering and not pressuring. Inside fighting will get you tagged obviously, but it was the right move for Marquez to make. Very clever.
As for Manny.. well speed is important in any fight, but it is not the key in this case. Timing is. Check out on the second video at 2:39- 2:42 .. awesome move.
It will be yet another great fight between these two fine fighters.
Very good points. I often feel that Marquez is the inverse of great pressure fighters like Chavez and Duran. He has admitted to studying their techniques closely, and it shows.
