But instead Marquez said "no". No, I trained hard and suffered and it didn't have anything to do in the result of the fight. That answer seems really suspicious to me.
That's because Marquez isn't stupid and knows shit about boxing. He had over 30 rounds to figure out Pacquiao and he's the best counterpuncher in the game. This time he put it together and caught him, timed him perfectly. I'd say the fact he's spent a lifetime developing his skills and sense of distance/timing is something he's more proud of than one training camp where he got some nice abs.
