Pacquiao wins over Marquez, is a fight with Mayweather next?

After the final bell of the twelve rounds of intense battle between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, Michael Buffer announced the judges’ scorecards:114-114 first. Then 115-113 and 116-112 to the winner… and still… WBO welterweight champion of the world… Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao!

Boos came down over the floor as soon as the announcement was made in the largely pro Marquez crowd. It could have ended up in another draw if Pacman was not able to win the last 5 rounds. Marquez was able to do a good job of staying away from Pacquiao’s power and still able to land some very good shots to Manny. The Mexican fought a much wiser fight now unlike the two previous fights that he went toe to toe with the Filipino fighter.

I was actually worried that the first half of the fight was going into Marquez’s side as he keeps on moving forward with Pacquiao not landing most of his power shots. I thought that only a knockdown could turn the tide to Manny’s side.

Fortunately, even after a cut in the right eye that came from  a head butt in the tenth round, Pacquiao was able to land some beautiful shots until the last round on the now weary Marquez.

With Pacquiao’s win over Marquez, will Floyd Mayweather keep his word about a fight with the Filipino champ next year as what he blabbered about in his previous press release?
