GMA 7 Airs Pacquiao-Marquez III Review

By Manny Piñol
PhilBoxing.com
26 Nov 2011



Television network GMA 7 which carried the epic third fight between Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and great Mexican counterpuncher Juan Manuel Marquez will air on Sunday, Nov. 27, from 5 to 6 p.m., the first of two parts of the replay and review of the world welterweight championship whose result was disputed by the Mexican’s camp and its followers.

The first part, which will be shown as part of the TV sports show “Game” hosted by Chino Trinidad and Christine Jacobs on GMA News Channel 11, involves the review of the rules of boxing, specifically that of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) which sanctioned the championship fight, and the scoring system in boxing.

International boxing judge and referee Danrex Tapdasan, a WBO accredited official, and I were invited by GMA 7 to shed light on the finer points of boxing scoring and judging.

Danrex, a young lawyer, brought with him a diagram of the legal punching areas in a boxer’s body to help explain that not all punches that connect will be scored because some of these punches land outside of the scoring area.

In the fight between Pacquiao and Marquez, for example, I pointed out that not all of the punches delivered by Marquez to Pacquiao’s midsection were scored by the judges because a closer review of the video of the fight showed that many of these were parried by the arms of the Filipino champion or landed below the waistline.

Marquez’s punches which hit Pacquiao in the nape were not also scored by the judges because those were not legal hits, never mind if referee Tony Weeks failed to warn the Mexican challenger about those “rabbit” punches.

Danrex emphasized that as a judge, he observes four rules in scoring the fight, namely: 1) effective aggression; 2) clean and hard punching; 3) ring generalship; 4) defense.

Outside of these four rules widely adopted by all world boxing sanctioning bodies, there is the unwritten rule that the challenger must take the fight to the champion and must prove that he deserves to be installed champion by convincingly defeating the defending titlist.

Chino, who earlier agreed to my idea of two panels discussing the fight and providing their perspective on the scoring of each round, said the “Game” episode to be aired tomorrow is a prelude to the replay of the fight next week.

“Let this be an opportunity to educate boxing fans on the finer points of boxing and the rules covering the scoring of the fights,” Chino said.

Next week, Pacquiao-Marquez III will be replayed and reviewed in full but it is a must that boxing fans watch tomorrow’s prelude and listen to the explanations of Danrex, who by the way admits that while he saw the fight as a draw, he could have scored it differently had he been at ringside and fully focused on the fight.

This was precisely the point raised by American boxing writer Don Donatello in an article published in his website which was posted by www.philboxing.com.

Donatello, in a well-written and well-analyzed article, asked those who thought they saw Marquez win: “On what basis?”

He then said how can somebody who was watching the fight while drinking beer, eating peanuts or popcorn and exchanging high fives as the fighters traded punches be more focused that the three people at ringside.

Two of the three judges saw the fight in favor of Pacquiao while the third judge scored it a draw. The Compubox, an instrument operated by two people which recorded the number of punches thrown and landed, including power punches, also had the Filipino boxing icon ahead.

That Pacquiao performed poorly in his third meeting against the brilliant counterpuncher Marquez is a view shared by everybody.

But the claim that Marquez won is simply a denial of available statistics and a defiance of logic.
