Default Re: Pacquiao - Marquez - Strategy

Pacquiao, in their third fight he outboxed Marquez the first 4 rd's playing at Juan's own game, countering. Although by the 5th Marquez showed how intelligent he was by changing up his approach and getting off first with quick power shots, likely this tactic was to get manny in a shell, which worked, pacquiao fell into a "hands-up" instead of an active "move your head and counter" plan that was working for him earlier and marquez from there was allowed time to set up some nice combo's and then baited Pacquiao into a more aggressive role.

Smart man that Marquez.

If Marquez is to win just do what he normally does times two, turn into it a chess match, start fighting earlier and fight a little harder, try not to take rounds off, as difficult as it may be at his age, he needs to throw a little more.
Anyway, I'm going for Pacquiao to win, in the third fight he showed good improvement since their second fight, i think he'll win a UD now that Juan is even older
