Manny, The Challenger
First round was the feeling up stage which gave both fighters ample time to size up each other. But then Manny Pacquiao, the fighting pride of the Filipino people poured it on, there was no stopping him. In the first round Antonio Margarito was a very determined fighter and engaged Manny in a toe to toe fight as he landed the most number of punches anyone has landed on Manny. On the other hand, Manny's lightning speed was so blinding that by the end of the third round it has created a cut under Margarito's right eye.
From thereon Manny Pacquiao battered Margarito at will. Since Margarito was bigger than Manny it was hard for Manny to knock out the Tijuana Tornado but had a chance at the end of the tenth round when Margarito was battered once again by a series of punches by Pacquiao that saw the Mexican writhe in pain and look ready to go down. Unfortunately the bell saved him. In the 11th round Margarito's attention was called by the referee to see if the boxer can still see. The fight continue and Margarito held on to end the fight.
The three judges gave the Fighting southpaw congressman a unanimous win with the scores, 120-108, 118-110, 119-109. Margarito was never in the fight. Pacquiao landed a total of 401 punches on the face of Margarito while he received only 167 punches. This win gives Manny Pacquiao the Super Welterweight title held by Margarito. He now owns 8 world titles on 8 different weight classifications - the only fighter to have done so. So what's next with Manny, I think its time to bring on the motor mouthed American to really see who is the best pound for pound which is the fight that everyone wants to see.
