The venue was the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. In a spectacular performance before a crowd of over 40,000 people, Manny Pacquaio proved that he is the best boxer in the world. Pacquiao dominated a bigger fighter Margarito, from the beginning to the end of the fight. Margarito suffered a cut on his cheek, a closed right eye and a bloody face that we only get to see in horror movies.
The beating was so thorough that the Filipino turned to the referee in the 11th round, begging him to stop the fight before he killed the Mexican. Lol
Pacquiao said after the fight: “I can’t believe that I beat someone this big and this strong.”
Margarito kept “chesting” the beating that he went directly to a hospital afterward to receive treatment for his cuts. After the fight he spoke to the press saying: “There was no way I was going to quit. I am a Mexican, we fight until the end.”
Pacquiao returns to the Philippines in a few days time to continue his legislative duties as a Congress man. I wish and pray that the legislative members of various countries emulate this great guy.
I hope Mayweather becomes broke as soon as possible (jokes), so we get to see him in the ring with Pacquiao. That will definitely be the fight of the century.
