On December 9, the world might finally get a chance to see the final chapter in the fight of between two great boxers - Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. And to give boxing enthusiasts an awesome viewing experience, SM Cinema is screening the highly anticipated match at the comfort of your favourite SM Cinema branch.

The Pacquiao-Marquez saga is arguably one of the best and memorable boxing match-ups in history. In a sport where everything is unpredictable, where one punch can change everything, no one is sure to know of who has the upper hand in the 4th and decisive fight between Manny Pacquiao and the Mexican dynamo Juan Manuel Marquez.

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao

Both men are considered among the greatest fighters in the history of boxing with Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao being the first eight-division world champion and the first to win the Lineal Championship in four different weight classes, making him a boxer of Muhammad Ali’s caliber.

Juan Manuel Marquez III

Juan Manuel Marquez III, on the other hand, is the greatest Mexican boxers of all-time for many analysts. He is the current WBO light-welterweight champion and the third Mexican-born boxer to become a four-division world champion, winning seven world titles in four different boxing weight classes.

The first fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, who at that time held both the WBA and IBF Featherweight titles, happened way back in 2004 at the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas. Pacquiao knocked Márquez down three times in the first round, but the battle went the distance, the pair couldn't be separated by the judges and the fight ended in a draw after 12 rounds. The decision sparked controversy, which outraged both camps.

On March 15, 2008, a rematch called “Unfinished Business” was held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Pacquiao won via split decision which earned him  the WBC Super Featherweight and The Ring Super Featherweight titles, making him the first Filipino and Asian to become a four-division world champion, a fighter who won world titles in four different weight divisions.
It was a very hard-fought fight and much more exciting than the first one," Marquez said.
Like the previous match, the decision of the judges spurred a 3rd bout which was held on November 12, 2011 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Pacquiao won the fight via majority decision. Pacquiao’s victory was also controversial one.
