There has been some question about why Juan Manuel Marquez was able to get Likar Ramos out cold with one shot that did not look very hard. I believe I have discovered his secret.
No it’s not the glass of urine a day.
We all know how that worked out for him.
No it’s not PED’s or a fix of some kind. There’s no Oliver Stone movie or Zapruder film that can explain his one punch, first round knockout of Likar Ramos in Mexico this weekend. The answer is right in front of us and is simple as a trip to the tailor.
Consider one Sergio Martinez, 47-2-2 with 27 KOs. Not exactly a puncher although a rather snappy dresser.
In his first fight with Paul Williams, Martinez was able to rock him
and even drop him
But in the end, Martinez couldn’t stop him and lost a decision.
In his fight with Kelly Pavlik, Martinez rocked him
and cut him
but never dropped him while lifting his middleweight belt.
Now we get around to the rematch with Paul Williams.
Here’s another view of them
and yet another.
In his next fight, Martinez goes on to stop Sergiy Dzinziruk who has never been stopped before.
Juan Manuel Marquez, 53-5-1 with 39 KOs, is a bit of a puncher but not a one punch knockout man. Against Manny Pacquiao, he was able to rock him
Sometimes roll him
But could never best him in two fights
Now? In preparation for Manny Pacquiao he takes on Likar Ramos.
Notice the trunks.
Marquez did not have to rock or roll Ramos. In fact, he barely threw a punch.
It only took one.
Need I say more?
