Although the fight was quite even in the first eight rounds, Marquez was intensely eager to show the world that he's still a contender for the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world. It was March last year that Juan Manuel Marquez undertook a shameful defeat against Manny Pacquiao. Thus, MArquez really needs to win this bout to have a chance to face Manny again soon. Max Kellerman of HBO described Marquez vs Diaz as "a really good young fighter knocked out by a great old fighter", with this he quipped that Marquez "may be" the number 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world. However, his co-commentator Jim Lampley revealed that Marquez is "sensational as any performance Manny Pacquiao has ever produced, for sure". However, Lampley still insists that Pacquiao is still the one to beat for Marquez.Let's just wait if when will Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez fight be in the future. We just hope the soonest because Marquez is definitely getting old!
