I dont think so.

It looks like Nacho and Marquez are planning on inflicting more damage on Pacquiao via athleticism and strength ................. ie - no change in strategy but emphasis on countering with more power than before. (a lot of pre-fight footage has been targeting "explosiveness" IMO)

My money is on Marquez busting Manny up more than their previous fights and getting a win this time.

Each fight has been close and of course Manny has dynamite in his fists so you can never write him off, but I will be very surprised to see any major change in tactics from Team Pacquiao.

Jesus H Christ! I didnt think Marquez would be that explosive, but I guess Pacquiao's momentum and naivety in that moment combined with Marquez's awareness and perfect timing all played an equal part in this devastating knockout.

What a fight!
