Manny Pacquiao’s proposed fight with Floyd Mayweather, worth around $200 million, was consigned to dust in Las Vegas when Pacquiao was dramatically knocked out in the sixth round by Mexico’s Juan Manuel Márquez in the sixth round of their welterweight bout at MGM Grand Garden Area.
Pacquiao said that he would not retire but the result wrecks the bargaining power that his promoter had in negotiations with Mayweather.
I threw a perfect punch,
I knew Manny could knock me out at any time. I felt he was coming to knock me out the last three rounds and I knew he was going to be wide open.
