http://www.LiveSportsTV.up.to - Manny Pacquiao was taken to the limit before escaping with a decision win over Juan Manuel Marquez in their welterweight title fight. Pacquiao won on two scorecards, while the third ringside judge had it a draw. It was a narrow escape for the Filipino congressman, who took as much punishment as he got over 12 rounds.
Marquez was a 7-1 underdog, but he picked Pacquiao apart with right hands almost every time he tried to get inside, and landed good hard flurries throughout the fight. One ringside judge had it a 114-114 draw, while two others favored Pacquiao by 115-113 and 116-112. The Associated Press had it 114-114.
The sellout crowd at the MGM Grand arena threw bottles and cans toward ringside after the decision was announced, with one full can hitting a ringside writer. Marquez, who had been bitter about the scoring in the first two fights, stormed out of the ring. "I got robbed," Marquez said. "I don't know what else I can do to win."
