However, even after the completion of two fights, there was no feeling and understanding who was more important of these two boxers, and in 2011 they met in the third one. However, contrary to all expectations, the third duel did not become decisive and absolutely did not clarify the situation between the boxers, but, vis-a-vis, demanded ambiguous assessments. Such an authoritative edition of the Ring, covering boxing, recognized this battle as “Robber of the Year”. In a poll conducted among readers, the majority of respondents spoke out against the outcome of the fight, and considered the outcome of the fight in vain, giving the victory to Marquez.
