What a great weekend for boxing. There was some spectacular fights with some shocking results. I think you all know what fight I'm talking about. In case you missed some of the action from last night, here are the results.

1) Brian Magee Vs Mikkel Kessler (KO)
2) Darren Barker (KO) Vs Kerry Hope
3) Miguel Vasquez (Decision) Vs Mercito Gesta
4) Manny Pacquiao Vs Juan Manuel Marquez (KO)
5) Yuriorkis Gamboa (Decision) Vs Michael Farenas

Mikkel Kessler looked like his old self, he battered Magee with brutal body shots and stopped him in the third round. Magee has been stopped twice before, but only in the tenth and eleventh rounds. A fight between Kessler and Carl Froch would be huge.

Darren Barker looked impressive in his return to the ring after a fourteen month lay-off, he showed he has plenty left to offer as he closed the show against Kerry Hope in the fifth. Barker was more aggressive than usual and it could have been down to frustration for being out of the ring for so long.

Miguel Vasquez did what he had to do in an uneventful contest which saw him successfully defend his IBF Lightweight crown for the fifth time by out-boxing Mercito Gesta over twelve rounds. Vasquez isn't your typical high action Mexican fighter, but he has some serious boxing skills and would be a danger for anyone in the Lightweight division.

Juan Manuel Marquez finally got the "W" over his rival Manny Pacquiao, and he couldn't have done it in a more spectacular way. Many boxing fans thought that Marquez didn't have the power to even badly hurt Pacquiao, but Marquez dropped him heavily in the third, and then closed the show at the end of the fifth round, with one of the most shocking one punch Knock-Outs you will ever see.

Yuriorkis Gamboa showed an amazing offence  but looked very vulnerable in out-pointing the tough Michael Farenas over twelve rounds. Although Gamboa was in control and won most of the rounds, he often got caught and stunned in exchanges. Gamboa hurt Farenas in the ninth round, and he looked like he was ready to close the show, but Farenas dropped Gamboa heavily with a left hook. Gamboa survived and was awarded the decision.
