[BOXlNG BELL RlNGlNG]

ANNOUNCER:
Let's get ready to rumble!

[CROWD CHEERlNG]

And fighting out of the red corner,

from Sarangani province, Philippines,

Manny Pacquiao.

COMMENTATOR 1 :
Is it round one

or round 37?

Pacquiao starts off

with a straight left hand,

fires two jabs.

Neither fighter has landed yet.

[CROWD CHANTlNG]

COMMENTATOR 2:
Good left hand

by Pacquiao backs Marquez up.

Another good left hand sock

by Pacquiao.

He's finding Marquez's chin,

hurling with his left hand.

And Marquez hasn't countered back.

[CROWD GROANS]

...by Marquez, and for the first time,

in four fights,

Manny Pacquiao has been knocked out.

That's the first time in 39 rounds

that Juan Marquez has been able to

put Manny Pacquiao down,

and he did it with his signature

right hand, over to Dutch.

COMMENTATOR 1 :
We got to be careful

though because once again,

Pacquiao is sitting down

on his punches,

and Pacquiao's giving him

some face.

COMMENTATOR 2:
And there goes

the knockdown.

Manny Pacquiao evens up

the knockdown count

as he puts Marquez on the canvas.

COMMENTATOR 1 :
Pacquiao's feeling

good now after knocking Marquez down.

And, his job is to get

out of the round.

COMMENTATOR 2:
Marquez

can't retaliate.

COMMENTATOR 1 :
Marquez is hurt bad.

Marquez is hurt bad.

[CROWD CHEERlNG]

Marquez won't hold.

Looks as though Marquez's nose

is broken.

These are big shots Pacquiao's

been landing on him.

There's another right there.

And, another right there.

COMMENTATOR 2:
Marquez is

off balance again.

COMMENTATOR 1 :
Marquezjust keeps back

and tries to lure back

to nail Pacquiao

with the right hand.

[BOXlNG BELL RlNGlNG]

COMMENTATOR 2:
And, that

seems like a knockdown.

He's not getting up, Jimmy.

COMMENTATOR 1 :
Get up, get up, get up.

He's not getting up!

COMMENTATOR 2:
No,

he's been knocked out!

A sensational fight!

MANNY:
Why do I box?

Why do I fight?

NARRATOR:
Boxing takes

so much from a man.

No other sport asks a man

to sacrifice himself so deeply.

Manny Pacquiao has been in the sport

for twenty long years.

He knows the ruthlessness of boxing,

better than anyone.

But, if you're a fighter,

truly a fighter,

then you get back up.

You fight again.

[CAMERAS CLlCKlNG]

[lNDlSTlNCT CHATTERlNG]

-Manny.

-How are you?

How you doing, boss?

Good to see you.

Knock 'em dead, all right?

As soon as you're ready,

we'll bring in about 1 0-1 5 guys here,

to talk to you for ten minutes,

All the way to the side here.

-Hello, hi.

-Hello, nice to see you.

MAN 1 :
Manny, how do you

fight overconfidence?

You've got all these people here,

you've got so many people in your ear,

telling you how great you are.

MAN 2:
Do you think you'll go down

as an all time great in boxing?

Mmm, l don't know.

[ALL LAUGHlNG]

MAN 2:
Don't you care though

what people think about you?

People say Muhammad Ali

is one of the greatest evers.

Don't you want people

to talk about you like that?

[MANNY SPEAKlNG FlLlPlNO]

People tell me about my greatness.

They want to know how l got here.

Manny, right here.

With the one and only, Manny Pacquiao.

Who else do you want to fight after...

Everyone around the world knows you.

You're a great humanitarian.

Do you need to win this fight

by knockout...

[MANNY SPEAKlNG FlLlPlNO]

As l look back on my life, there have

been so many twists and turns,

The people who celebrate me now can't

really understand where l come from.

[CAMERAS CLlCKlNG]

NARRATOR:
Manny was born

on December 17, 1978

in General Santos City.

The Philippines was

in the midst of civil war.
