He never did that in the previous 3 fights.
Obviously, yes. That had to do with him working on power for this fight rather than speed I think. Though if you watch the second fight, Marquez did something similar in combinations though late in the second round where he stunned/rocked Pacquiao. That's how Marquez generally fights, he would mostly set up baits and counter or charge in with bombs of his own unexpectedly, he's very unpredictable and smart. In this fight he focused more on power clearly with his approach, even his counters looked like he had venom all over them every time he tried to land.
