With Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez set to do battle for the third time on November 12, now is the perfect time to recount the best moments from the pair’s first two fights. Despite the inevitably lopsided nature of this coming bout, Pacquiao and Marquez have quite a storied past with one another – and each one can stake claim to the fact that they, at the very least, challenged the other in both bouts.
Below, we’re including two clips.
The first contains that epic first round of the pair’s first match, which saw Pacquiao knock his opponent to the canvas three times. Marquez, of course, famously rebounded from his early problems to eventually fight his counterpart to a draw – even though Pacquiao was robbed of victory by an incorrect judge’s decision. That’s our favorite rivalry moment from these two.
Below that, in the second clip, we have a highlight reel of the pair’s second match. Check it out, and tell us what your favorite moments of this rivalry have been in the comments section below.
