Juan Manuel Marquez is a former professional boxer from Mexico. Marquez competed from 1993-2014 and became the third Mexican boxer to become a world champion in four weight classes. However, it was not always victories for Marquez. Marquez went against Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao, better known as Manny Pacquiao, four times. Furthermore, the first match was a split draw and, Pacquiao won the next two via majority decision. Marquez was aware that to win the fight, it had to be a knockout. Finally, in the fourth match, Marquez defeated Pacquiao by knockout with one second remaining in the sixth round. It was named Fight of the Year and Knockout of the Year.
Even though Pacquiao defeated Marquez three times, he never gave up. Marquez sets a great example that hard work pays off. Nevertheless, other boxers in this situation would have thrown in the towel. On the contrary, Marquez sought to show the world he could beat Pacquiao in every fight. Marquez highlighted that defeat is not what should matter but the way you come back up. Some people show off to get attention, but it is the quick attacks that leave an impact. In addition, this is why Marquez never focused on being at the bottom; he studied how to get back up. In conclusion, Marquez was professional, humble, powerful, quick, had good ethics, and was an inspiration that deserves all the respect.
