Juan Manuel Marquez successfully defended his WBC super featherweight title Saturday night, via a unanimous decision against challenger Rocky Juarez.
Marquez, who suffered a hand injury in training which led to a postponement, won on all three judges scorecards, 118-110, 117-111, 120-108. Marquez improved to 48-3-1, while Juarez fell to 27-4. Now Marquez wants Pacquiao, “I knew Juarez would be tough,” said a multi-bruised Marquez. “He fought like a champion. I’m very happy from this fight. Now I want Manny Pacquiao.”
