Arguments abound at my table about who deserved to win. But Manny certainly threw far more power punches than Marquez. And Manny's accuracy was superior. I suspect because people thought the fight would be more lopsided than it was, it affects people's perceptions. If Manny squeaked through with a deserved win, when everyone was expecting greater dominance, the misleading impression is that Manny may not have deserved to win. That said, when you break it down, clearly Manny deserved to win. But just barely...
And I still disagree. I was actually watching the fight in espanol because it was the only good link. I was going for Manny but he was getting throughly out boxed the first 6 rounds or so. Manny was precise, and landing punches, but he was being countered, with a powerful straight and a combo. This is when I started going for Marquez. Manny did not do enough in the later rounds, I had him winning maybe 5, With a couple draws(or what-ever you call them) in between.
And about the perception part, I think that can be found any place you look. It is Pac-Man afterall.
