Manny Pacquiao raises his hands in victory after dominating Antonio Margarito from every round on their scheduled 12 round battle. The hand speed was too much for Margarito as Manny bit by bit hit Antonio with power shots from all angles with precision. It was a masterful show with Manny in perpetual motion dominated the taller and bigger fighter for his unprecedented eight different division world title.
Manny is a great boxer but he plans to be the greatest. Everybody can argue and debate on who is the greatest boxer of all time but no one can question the feat Manny accomplished. “Pacquiao” the word in our dialect means “to have more” and Manny is just simply living up to his name.
Henry Haskins said that the greatest masterpieces were once only a pigment on a palette. From a lanky fighter who put stones in his pocket just to get to the 105lb limit all the way to the super welterweight division. Manny had added pigments after pigments and Margarito might be his last.
After Manny’s crushing victory the question would be who he fights next? But there is no other fighter than Floyd Mayweather Jr. the great defense against the powerful offense, the alpha males fighting for supremacy. But when it takes two to tango, the other one wants to sit down. Floyd never wanted to fight Manny, not now, not in the near future or not even in his lifetime. Everyone wants to see that fight and Manny wants that fight more than ever. That is the only logical fight that could bring him back in lacing his gloves and anyone out there fall short of making it a challenge.
Manny Pacquiao after the demolition job against Margarito went into his usual corner, kneeling and bowing his head and prayed. The electricity, the crowd and all the wonderful production throughout the fight, there is no satisfying conclusion than this. Manny just made history again and once again Manny made non-believers to a believer. The crowd applauded Manny in the loud Dallas Stadium as Manny smiled in approval. The greatest boxer of our lifetime had done what he had to do to get boxing on his feet and the crowd chanted “Manny…Manny…Manny” they just seen one of Pacquiao’s masterpiece and this might be his last.
