Enter Juan Manuel Marquez, a guy who, prior to their 4th fight, had been knocked down 4 times by Pacquaio in their previous fights, eventhough he had won more rounds, come in and get a resounding KO. Is their anyone in the forum who thinks Marquez beats ONE of the aforementioned fighters that Pacquaio beat, let alone in the fashion he beat them? No disrespect to Marquez but I don't see him beating any of those guys, which in my opinion is a true testament to the "styles make fights" adage.
Hatton, Mosley, Margarito, and DLH were all on the very end of their careers when Pac fought them. They all looked terrible before and after Pac fought them. I think Marquez can take them at those stages of their careers.

Cotto and Clotttey would be tough tests though.
