Marquez Gets Screwed By Judges
By William Trillo & Marlene Marquez @ Ringside
I always said an argument could be made for either side in
the first two Pacquiao vs. Marquez fights but I was
willing to accept those decisions. There is no argument that
can be made for the decision handed down tonight and as I
get pelted with beer from the pissed off fans in attendance
I have to say the judges in this fight were dead wrong. I
can not and will not accept this nor should anyone else,
including everyone from Team Pacquiao.
Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1,39 KO’s) boxed beautifully and
exposed so many of Manny Pacquiao’s (54-3-2,38 KO’s )flaws,
he made Manny miss his left all night long and countered
those shots with clean punches of his own.
Judges Glen Trowbridge, Dave Morretti and Robert Hoyle
should all hand in their walking papers and never be allowed
near a ring again. This was as disgraceful as it gets.
Anyone who watched as the final bell rang saw a dejected
Pacquiao go to his corner and bury himself in his entourage
while a jubilant Marquez raised his arms in victory…and
Today in the media room I just happened to be in line with
Nevada State Boxing Commissioner Keith Kizer. As we spoke to
pass the time we joked about his cell phone receiving a text
message. He mentioned how he hoped the night would go by
quietly with no trouble so he wouldn’t be getting calls
until the wee hours of the morning. I laughed and joked when
I said, “Maybe you should just turn it off.”
Its no longer funny and it’s not a joke, Mr. Kizer, leave
your phone and and expect the deluge to begin. There are
going to be a lot of irate fans and media and we want
answers. Officially Manny retains his WBO welterweight title
with scores of 114-114, 115-113, 116-112 to take a majority
And so it goes...
