Nothing out of the ordinary here and let's face it, this isn't the first time Marquez hurt/rocked Pacquiao, only to a greater extent because of his weight lifting(which explains the bigger muscular shoulders). Marquez, clearly, wanted a knockout in this fight, you could clearly see that this is what he trained for especially when he suffered a broken nose, cuts and broken nose. In all three fights, when did Marquez open up as often as he did in this fight?
PEDs have nothing to do with this, he barely looked supernatural and was actually losing/lost and confused the first two rounds from Pacquiao's head movement. I was far more impressed with Pacquiao's performance, even after the knockout, than Marquez. That's hardly an example of someone on serious PEDs.
The power difference came from some where, as did the buliking he did in the 3rd and 4th fight.
It is hard to put on weight while doing cardio, I have no doubt like Manny he was aided in doing so with the help of the PEDs from Angel.
This is the first time Juan ever put Manny down with one clean blow. EVER. He never was able to do that landing the exact same punch before in any of the 3 previous fights. Hell he caught him with the same right hand counter on Manny coming in before and never put him out like that before.
The power came from somewhere, because he never exhibited before and it is my opinion that looking at who he sought out, Angel, it came from him and his specialty, which is designer steroids.
Marquez put on major mass compared to his usual frame, late in life and also developed serous one punch power at 147 in the process, while still retaining stamina to go punch for punch with Manny and not be winded in any way in the 6 rounds they had.
Marquez is clearly a PED user in my opinion and I don't blame him, Manny is on it too.
