Apparently, Juan Manuel Marquez (JMM) was caught stepping on Manny Pacquiao’s foot 6 times, which is also the number of points the Filipino boxer led, via the judges’ scores.

The Pacquiao vs Marquez III, which was held last Saturday, November 12 (Sunday, November 13, Manila time) had one judge scoring equal for both boxers and two scored in favor of Pacquiao.

Glenn Trowbridge (116-112) and Dave Moretti (115-113) scored it for Pacquiao, while Robert Hoyle scored it tied, 114-114. Marquez complained right after the fight, claiming that he is the real winner.

Various speculations surfaced with some observers saying that Marquez won the fight, while others say it was a close fight but Pacquiao deserved to be declared winner and the scores were valid.

Meanwhile, the foot stepping by Marquez on Pacquiao’s foot was seen 6 times on different rounds; Round 4, 0:11, Round 6, 1:18, Round 7, 1:49; Round 8, 1:27; Round 12, 1:23 and 0:52.

After watching the video, some people are saying that it was not intentional for Marquez since their bout is a direct-opposite for the two boxers and foot stepping seemed to be unavoidable.

Pacquiao is being noted to be a southpaw boxer while Marquez is an orthodox, where their forward feet are on the same side when facing each other. Nevertheless, this foot stepping was not an issue during their first two fights.

However, some people said that this could be probably one of the dirty tactics by Juan Manuel Marquez, with reports saying that Pacquiao complained of cramps after the fight.

As of this writing, there are no official statements from both camps about this issue and it is not clear as to whether a Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 will likely happen.
