Juan Manuel Marquez scored the biggest win of his career and finally solved the riddle of Manny Pacquiao Saturday night in Las Vegas.
With blood streaming from what appeared to be a broken nose and seemingly on the verge of being stopped himself, Marquez landed an absolute missile of a right hand at the end of the sixth round that knocked Pacquiao cold and ended the night.
It was an absolutely stunning ending to an all-action war.
And it was frightening as Pacquiao lay motionless on the mat for several minutes while his foe celebrated the biggest win of his storied career.
Nobody saw it coming but now Juan Manuel Marquez finally has his vindication and Manny Pacquiao faces an uncertain future.
