    Re: Pacquiao vs Margarito

    Sa timbang na 144.6, palagay ko ay kating-kati na si Margarito na tamaan ang tagiliran ni Manny.

    Ang tanong eh, tatama ba siya?

    It's all too obvious, Manny wants to use speed-- footwork and hands--to chop down the bigger opponent.

    Nung mga huling laban ni Manny, pangkaraniwan ang 4-5 punch combination, all opponents were faster than Margarito. Sa isang mabagal na kalaban, 5-6, 6-7 ? ;D
    We had a head start in this game. At one time we had a glorious 3rd place finish in the World Championship and was the undisputed power in Asia. But the world has learned how to play it. They may not be as good as us,but they have enough smarts to make use of their height. That is enough to beat us.

    Referee: Laurence Cole

    Margarito enters the ring first to cheers, led by his Mexican flag; Pacquiao, second, led, initially, by AC/DC'S "Thunderstruck." Both fighters were cheered loudly as they entered.

    Margarito's introduction is greeted by a mixture of cheers and boos, but mostly, cheers. Pacquiao's introduction receives a similar reception, so the crowd appears to be a mix of fans for both fighters.

    Round 1: Pacquiao has a bit of a bulge to his belly and his trunks are pulled high. They touch gloves, Pacquiao right jabs and Margarito meets him in the middle of the ring and is coming forward. Pacquiao jabs and goes to the belly with a left. Margarito is so much bigger at 165 to Pacquiao's 148. Pacquiao lands a few jabs and right hands that follow and the crowd gets into it.

A three-punch combination by Pacquiao, who is so much faster. Another three-punch Pacquiao combination. Margarito misses with a while right hand. Another three-punch combination for Pacquiao as the bell rings. Pacquiao's round, 10-9.

    Round 2: Pacquiao has established the tempo behind his right jab and follow up lefts. Margarito's guard is high but he is not punching.

If Pacquiao can do this all night he will have no problems. Pacquiao lands a double-right hook and two left hands, but takes a nice uppercut from Margarito. Margarito lands two solid left jabs. Pacquiao fires and lands two left hands before the bell. Pacquiao's round, 10-9; Pacquiao, 20-18.

The pressure is decent from Margarito, his hands held high. Margarito lands a nice right but takes a hard left hand from Pacquiao that draws crowd reaction.

    Round 5: Margarito appeared to be ready to go at the end of the last round, but catches Pacquiao early along the ropes with a series of body shots. However, the smaller man resumes control with yet another series of unanswered punches, starting with a right-left combination. A hard left hook targets Margarito's eye again. Margarito gets Pacquiao on the ropes for a three-punch combination to the body, but Pacquiao escapes and fires that left hand that swivels Margarito's head. Pacquiao drives Margarito's head back, yet again, with another right-left, right combination before the bell. Pacquiao's round, 10-9; Pacquiao, 50-44.

    Round 6: Pacquiao continues to circle and jab with his right, and Margarito, to plod, unable to close in. Margarito continues to run into the right hand and then a left hook follows from Pacquiao. A right to the chin by Pacquiao. A right-left from Pacquiao jars Margarito. A four-punch series -- all uppercuts -- find the mark for Pacquiao, whose angles and movement prevent Margarito from getting a bead on him.

    Round 10: Margarito's eyes, bruised over and under, are nearly closed.

    Round 11: Pacquiao goes back to pounding Margarito, who appears ready to go. Rights and lefts to the head, uppercuts, and Pacquiao looks at Cole as if asking him to stop the fight.

    Re: Pacquiao vs Margarito

    Congrats to Manny for winning via Unanimous Decision in his fight against Margarito. By all accounts, it was one hell of a beating, but Margarito refused to quit. Not only that, he came to fight, and not just cover up during the entire fight like Joshua Clottey. With the heart that he showed, I wouldn't be surprised if Marga sorts of finally gets some sort of redemption after this fight.

    On the other hand, I wonder who's the referee of this fight. Marga was taking a tremendous beating in the later rounds, and it seems it should've been stopped either in the tenth, or eleventh round.

    The crowd chanted "Na Na Hey hey goodbye" in unison in the 11th round. :D

    "margarito by late round stoppage" - robert garcia

    "once i hit him, pacquiao is going to wonder, what have i gotten myself into?" - margarito

    "margarito's gonna put so much pressure on him, he's gonna fold. manny might do a mike tyson and bite his ears off just to get out of the game." - brandon rios, link-

    "freddie roach is afraid i'll beat pacquiao" - margarito, link -

    "i think pacquiao's in trouble. tony will knock him out with an uppercut." - francisco espinoza, margarito's manager

    "it's the worst moment for pacquiao to pick up this fight because now is my time." - margarito

    "he gonna walk right thru him. freddie roach he fucked up, wrong move." - francisco espinoza, margarito's manager

    "he gonna f#ck him, he gonna dominate him." - brandon rios

    at robert garcia's oxnard gym, there's a photoshopped picture of manny's crying face on an infant's body. margarito says that's what's gonna happen after the fight.

    brandon rios, looking at the american airline inflight magazine with a manny pacquiao article, points to a pac picture and says, "this is a bitch. an asshole."

    margarito looks at the same picture and rips the page in half.

    the only disappointing thing about today's beatdown was that manny didn't beat up that punk brandon rios as well. he was screaming and jumping as if he won a world title when all he did was beat a 3rd class bum.
