Here’s what happened in their three previous match-ups. In their first face-off as featherweights back in May 2004, the bout ended up in a split draw.
During that bout, Juan Manuel got knocked down thrice in the first round, however, Marquez showed great heart and went on to win most of the following rounds by utilizing effective counter-punching.
In March 2008 as super featherweights, almost four years after their first encounter, they faced each other in a rematch wherein Manny Pacquiao won by a very close split decision.
In their second bout, Juan Manuel landed punches at better percentage, however, a knockdown that he suffered in the third round proved to be the decisive factor of the outcome of their rematch.
Their third fight happened last November 2011, this time as welterweights. In another very close match, Manny managed to win by a close majority decision over JMM.
Now, just over a year after, they will look to finally close the book of their storied rivalry in their upcoming fourth match.
