Absolutely not! the vast majority, like 2/3 of boxing beat writers scored for Marquez, the majority if the rest scored a draw with very few biased heads scoring for Pacquiao!
Thats a fact. Find me a link with a poll conducted the week of the fight that has Pacquiao even close to Marquez in far as votes for who won the fight?
Most polls had Marquez getting 2 out of every 3 votes with the rest of the votes divided between a win for Pacquiao and a draw.
The HBO poll conducted at ringside from sport writers only had a 12% vote for Pacquiao. How does 12%= to 1/3?
