The Trilogy Ends Here (or not): Pacquiao Wins, Marquez Sobs

It was a split decision win for Pacman, making him successful for defending the WBO World Welterweight Title.

"I really can't believe that I won this fight. This fight is not just for me, but for my country as well. I am thankful that the fight with Juan Manuel Marquez was successful," quipped Pacquiao who still managed to smile despite the bruises and minor injuries on his face brought about by the powerful punches of Marquez.

Inspite of losing today's match, Marquez is still happy with the result.

"I am very happy for Pacquiao. He really deserved it. His punches were so strong, most especially his left hand," Marquez said.

The two fighters remain good friends.

"We still continue to keep in touch. Marquez is a wonderful person. He is so friendly and nice," cheered Pacquiao.

Manny Pacquiao is scheduled to have a one week rest period at Los Angeles, California before heading back to the Philippines.

"I want to fight again this May with Marquez," Pacquiao added.

It seemed that fans wanted to have a Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight, but it seems that it's still impossible as of this moment.

Meanwhile, President Noynoy Aquino extends his congratulations to Pacquiao and is planning to have a hero's welcome as soon as he returns home from the United States. Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio of General Santos City is also planning for a hero's welcome as well.
