2004-05-08 : Manny Pacquiao 125 lbs drew with Juan Manuel Marquez 125 lbs by SD in round 12 of 12




- Manny Pacquiao would be the WBA/IBF featherweight champion today had judge Burt Clements been aware that he was able to score a round 10-6.
- Pacquiao recorded three knockdowns against champion Juan Manuel Marquez in the first round Saturday before a frenzied crowd of 7,129 at the MGM Grand. But Clements scored it 10-7 instead of 10-6 as the other two judges did.
- Judge John Stewart called the bout 115-110 for Pacquiao. Guy Jutras had it 115-110 for Marquez. Clements scored the fight 113-113, making it a draw, but Pacquiao would have won had he scored the first round 10-6.
