Exactly. Many people, including myself, thought Marquez was on the verge of getting stopped from round 6 till that punch came. Marquez was badly hurt from a hook in the 5th where it almost looked like he might be taken out. The cuts and broken nose would have exhausted him as the fight progressed if that punch didn't land. It was a desperate, gutsy and willful Marquez that eventually landed that punch to end it.
