If you missed all the hype yesterday and for some reason or another didn’t get to watch the Ring Magazine’s Lightweight bout between Joel Casamayor and Juan Manuel Marquez brought to us by HBO PPV, then here’s a video of that great knockout that you missed.

Joel Casamayor started strong and was able to find the target for his left hooks and left straights. This was true for the first four rounds. But Marquez, being the cunning fighter, was able to adjust and seems to be controlling the fight from then on. Marquez’ combinations and uppercuts looked really stunning, although Casamayor was shaking his head most of the time he was tagged with a flurry of punches as if saying to the crowd they were not hurting him. His arrogance will meet the canvas along with his body twice in the 11th round, and Marquez will be declared the new Lightweight champion.

In preparation for the Joel Casamayor versus Juan Manuel Marquez brawl this Saturday, September 13, 2008, HBO Live has released a new Youtube video highlighting the career of Juan Manuel Marquez. Marquez has long been regarded as a very cunning and powerful counterpuncher, but he didn’t get as much limelight as his compatriots Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barrera. Hopefully, a win over Casamayor would cement his legacy on the sport and pave the way for a rematch with Manny Pacquiao.
