He dropped him with a left hook in the first round, the first time Mercer had ever been floored by a head shot, and then bombarded him with power shots in the sixth prompting the stoppage. Juan Manuel Marquez This is quite possibly the easiest entry on this, or any other, list for that matter. There’s really only one legitimate option. Juan Manuel Marquez had fought MannyPacquiaoto a virtual draw over 36 rounds of boxingprior totheir fourth meeting this past December inLasVegas. You could literally make a case for either fighter in almost all those rounds, save for the first round of their first fight in which Marquez got knocked down three times. The smart money was on more of the same, but that went out the window pretty early. Marquez flooredPacquiaoin the third round, the first knockdown he scored in the series, but the favor got returnedwhen thePac-Man dropped Marquez in the fifth and broke his nose. With the fight seeming to slip away from him, and in the closing seconds of round six, Marquez landed a missile right hand that crumpled his foe to the mat.

The Russian team utterly dominated this years European Championships and as one team manager told us, Much depends on the Russian Team that is selected. If they select the Sborna (national side), every team will need to watch out, they could cause a shock upset. For Baku Fires meanwhile, it seems as though the team got its wish, with Managing Director Rizvan Genzhiyev saying last week that he hoped they would draw the strongest teams in the Regular Season.
