When Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez met for the first time in May of 2004, nobody envisioned the rivalry that would develop between the two legends.
At the time, Pacquiao was still a rising star, having just burst onto the scene in a big way with a stunning blitz of Mexican legend, and at the time top five fighter, Marco Antonio Barrera.

This fight would, in many ways, set the tone for the entire rivalry that was to follow. Read on as we break down the first fight of this legendary rivalry.
