Pacquiao victorious
But Marquez again says it was `robbery’

Manny Pacquiao failed to knock down Juan Manuel Marquez, but the 114-114, 115-113, 116-112 majority decision was enough for the boxing icon to keep his WBO Welterweight title and for the Filipinos all over the country and the rest of the world to celebrate his victory in their third encounter at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas yesterday.

It was a close fight, boxing experts say, but it was a clear win for Pacquiao, they claimed.

“It is a robbery and of the two robberies I have had against him, this one is the more terrible,” Marquez said in his locker room moments after storming from the ring in anger, reports from the wires said.moremoremore
