"When you have a lefty [Pacquiao] fighting a right-hander [Marquez], you have guys stepping on each other's lead foot more than righty-righty or lefty-lefty.
We were concerned enough about that happening - because it had happened a lot in their other fights, and even could be used as a strategy by Marquez - to ask the referee to come to our dressing room before the fight so we could warn him to watch for that.
But what happened was the opposite, and I didn't see it clearly until later, when I looked at overhead camera shots.
Marquez didn't step on Manny's foot. Manny stepped on Marquez's foot. And when Marquez pulled it out, it sent Manny off-balance and forward - right into the perfect right hand.
I wasn't ready for that. I had told Manny, 'when he steps on your foot, don't pull away.' But the other way? I didn't see that coming."
