Clean punching? Clearly Marquez.
Ring Generalship? Marquez made Pacquiao fight his fight
Defense? Both had decent defense in the fight kept output down for both fighters.
I score on punches landed, that's it.
Pacquiao did all the landing in the first 4 rd's, mainly with the counter lead left. Only rd you could give to marquez is the second, that was a close one.
