Manny Pacquiao Bags Unanimous Decision of Antonio Margarito
Once again Manny Pacquiao, Congressman by day and National Fist by night, wins. The 5’6½” boxer beat the face of a 5’11″ opponent into a pulp.
To quote ESPN:
Giving away both pounds and inches, boxing’s little superstar turned Antonio Margarito into a bloody and nearly blind fighter with a dizzying array of punches Saturday night in a lopsided decision victory that wasn’t close from the opening rounds on.
In a spectacular performance before a delighted crowd of 41,734 at Cowboys Stadium, Pacquiao cemented his claim to being the best fighter in the world by dominating the bigger but slower Margarito almost from the opening bell. Pacquiao won round after round, opening a cut on Margarito’s cheek, closing his right eye, and turning his face into a bloody mess.
Looks like all happened according to plan, if this pre-fight gesture by Manny’s mom Dionesia is accurate:
Though one wonders if the excitement was too much for her. As Vicki Belo tweeted:
Mommy diönisia is unconscious. . I don t know if its cuz she prayed too much or she s having an attack
She has not regained consciousness. Please pray for mommy d.
Mommy d awake . Just feeling weak . Kept here in the hospital for more tests. Thanks for prayers
