Apart from the knockdown and knockout to pac the fight was going exactly the same as the other fights had.
Come on, you can't put it down to a pattern. All their rounds from previous fights are close, even when Pacquiao starts better. Rounds 5 and 6 were not close, Marquez was getting battered more than in any other fight. Had Pacquiao not been reckless he would have finished Marquez off by round 8 - I know I'm speculating but you can see this was not the same pattern as previous fights, no way
