I wish Manny Pacquiao would fight every month for several reasons. First I get lots of traffic ( $$$ cashing ! $$$) Secondly, at least there’s something to “look forward to” a diversion from life’s hectic schedule and thirdly because the entire Philippines suddenly becomes so peaceful for several hours.
So I am really looking forward to Manny Pacquiao’s fight vs. Antonio Margarito this coming Saturday night (Sunday morning here in the Philippines) at the Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas. The two will clash for the vacant WBC world super welterweight title. If Pacquiao wins this it will be his 8th title making him break his own record of being the only boxer that has the most titles. I’m sure people who could not be there during fight night will all over the net searching for the Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito youtube video and live streaming to view the fight of the year.
Manny Pacquiao does not need any further introductions. Undisputedly the best in the world of boxing he has held 7 world titles, the first boxer in history to win the lineal championship in four different weight classes, is dubbed as the best pound for pound boxer and awarded as “fighter of the decade.” A win over Margarito will no doubt earn him the title of inching closer to be the greatest among the greatest.
As compared to Pacquiao’s achievements as a boxer, Margarito’s record is pale in comparison but it isn’t so bad either and he could still be very well considered as a worthy opponent. In his professional boxing career, out of Margarito’s 45 fights he has won 38, 27 of those are by knock out, 6 of those he loss and 1 is being contested. His image as a fighter has been tarnished because he (or his corner) was found to have tampered his hand wraps prior to his bout.
So will Pacquiao’s winning streak continue or is Antonio Margarito the one who will put an end to his winning reign. The whole world waits for it this coming Saturday.
Meantime while waiting for the the Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito youtube video and live streaming, here is GMA 7’s fight teaser (Almost nothing is said about Margarito hehehehe)
Update: Sorry I still could not find any video. I will post it once I find it. As expected Pacquiao wins ! Poor Margarito he should have gotten some insurance before the fight. He probably only got car insurance at cheapestautoinsurance.net.
