Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 Judges to Score the Fight Revealed

 

The Mexican boxing legend and future hall of famer Juan Manuel Marquez always blamed the judges in his last three fights against the 8-division world champion Manny Pacquiao for the three times that he got robbed of wins.

In their first meeting in 2004, the fight ended in a draw; in the second match in 2008, it favored Pacquiao, and on the third in 2011, still a favored Pacquiao via majority decision.  Since then, Marquez has been chasing another shot at Pacquiao.

In their meeting dubbed as “Pacquiao vs Marquez IV” the Mexican counter-puncher said that he will do his best to win convincingly.   He added that this will be and should be their last fight and at the everything will be settled once and for all come fight night.

Pacquiao and his trainer Freddie Roach on the other hand promised to knock out Marquez and shut his mouth up.

The fight is on December 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer in one of the interviews revealed the names of the three judges that will score the fight on December 8.  They will be Adelaide Byrd from Nevada, Steve Weisfield from New Jersey and John Keane from Great Britain.

As for the third man on the ring, it will be Kenny Bayless.  He was also the referee at the Pacquiao-Marquez II.  Kaizer added,

“We do want to have the crew to be very world-class and it’s hard to argue that any of these four officials aren’t near the top or at the top of their profession.”

Not only did the last three face-offs of Pacquiao and Marquez that the latter has been questioning the judges’ decisions, but also was Pacquiao’s last championship fight against the American Timothy Bradley in Nevada.

In that fight, Pacquiao lost to Bradley courtesy of a very questionable split decision win for the American.  The result of the fight stirred so much controversy and calls for investigation were even instigated.

On the other hand, for this fight, Magic Johnson predicted for a KO win for Pacquiao.
