With the Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez 4 fight just a little over 24 hours away, we thought it would be a great time to add some additional thoughts to a day that will be filled with fight previews from various websites and sports stations around the world. The way we see it, Pacquiao vs. Marquez 4 can only end in one of three ways. Here's how...

1: Manny Pacquiao wins by knockout.

At this point, Manny Pacquiao should know that the only way he is going to ever get full credit for a win over Juan Manuel Marquez is if he knocks him out. Pacman cannot win a decision, because any decision in his favor will undoubtedly be controversial whether he deserves the victory or not. Pacquiao must win by knockout if he wants full credit for a victory by boxing fans from all over the world, including Mexico.

2. Juan Manuel Marquez wins clear unanimous decision.

We don't see Juan Manuel Marquez being able to knockout Manny Pacquiao, but we would not be surprised if he won nearly every round and won a clear unanimous decision. And by clear, we mean he must clearly win at least 8 of the 12 rounds very decisively. If he takes a close decision, people will always say that the judges only rewarded him the victory to make up for the past two close decisions in Pacquiao's favor.

3. Controversial Pacquiao decision ...again.

This one is the most likely result from a fourth fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. All three of their three previous fights have ended in controversy and we have no reason to believe that this one will end any differently. While nobody wants to see more controversy in the sport of boxing, these two fighters could fight a million times and each time would have a similiar result. Controversy, controversy and more controversy.
