Holy cats, that was a MAN punch from Marquez that hit right on target! Hot damn! Check this out! (EDIT: Let's replace the animated gif with actual video footage from ESPN!)

WOW! That's a hell of a KO! If the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight wasn't dead before, it sure is now! And that was another great fight up to that point, with Pacquiao clearly winning that fight before Marquez fought back up to that KO punch.

Ok, NOW this is a rivalry! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I want to see Part 5! FEED...ME...MORE!

That was an incredible fight, and it was good enough that if they wanted to do a fifth one I would be perfectly great with that. Manny was winning up to that point and he had dominated round 5 (with a flash knockdown followed by hurting Marquez for the last 55 seconds of the round), and he was doing well in round 6 up until Marquez pulled out the most dramatic one-punch KO in a major fight since Sergio Martinez KOed Paul Williams (who also landed face-first).

To be honest, because of the camera angle and how Manny fell I thought Marquez had crushed his balls.

EDIT: I don't think Manny drops out of the P4P top-10, despite the KO. Off the top of my head, I'd go...

1. Mayweather
2. Ward
3. Marquez
4. Martinez
5. Wlad Klitschko
6. Manny
7. Donaire
8. Tim Bradley
9. Danny Garcia
10. Adrien Broner

And then in some order Vitali Klitschko, Austin Trout, Robert Guerrero, Carl Froch, and Mikkel Kessler.

Good for Marquez. You can make a case for him winning all three of his previous battles with Manny (I certainly thought he won the third won) and now he finally ended all doubt with a definitive stoppage.

Great sacrifice from Marquez - taking that hit from Pacquiao just so he could hit that huge punch that knocked him down.

My wife, a born and raised Filipina, was obviously upset with the punch, but was excited at the prospect at fight #5.

(Not a boxing fan, but) the ESPN commentator said it was the first time Pacquiao has been knocked out since 1999. That's damned impressive, if you ask me.

That is one of those knockouts that make you wonder if Pacquiao will ever be the same fighter.

Of course I looked away when it happened. Nothing ever happens in the last 5 seconds of a round anyway ... right?

I think Pacquiao/Marquez may go to the back of the line for Marquez/Mayweather. Honestly, Pac is pretty much done. He has too much going on in his life that boxing seems a distant third.

Last night was pretty awesome if you're a fan of men doing violence unto one another with this, UFC on Fox and (if you're from the UK) a decent night of domestic boxing. All told it meant about seven hours of combat sports back-to-back.

I thought the fight was pretty close going into the sixth but Pacquiao definitely looked like he was getting on top of things. Then, just like that, he very much wasn't on top of things. I'm less keen than some to see Part V. I'm sure it would be a great fight and I'd pay to see it, but the point of *this* fight was meant to be to get a conclusive outcome one way or the other after three very close decisions. We got that. Let the two guys move onto other things.

But 8 beat 6! (kidding, obviously)

What else? Oh yeah, 50 Cent needs to understand the fine line between promoting fighters and self promotion. But hey, Gamboa v Farenas was pretty fun.

Either Mark Martin or Joey Logano. They are my dark horses...but all in all, I'm going for either Smoke or Kyle Busch.
