At 38, Juan Manuel Marquez boxing the way he did yesterday was amazing. Add to that: against the world's new poster boy of boxing Manny Pacquiao.
Setting aside Filipino pride, I give utmost respect to the man who deserves it: Marquez.
As for Manny, a strategy is just that: a strategy. It doesn't always work. Boxing isn't chess where strategy works 100% of the time (or I may be wrong here.). Boxing is about fiery passion and a hungry heart fighting to get what it wants. And Manny, JuanMa got both yesterday.
Manny played chess. JuanMa played boxing.
