Pacquiao Vs. Margarito Round-By-Round Coverage: Manny Takes Round Three

Blow-By-Blow: Good straight left by Pacquiao, and now he’s starting to find a rhythm. Margarito just coming through those so far, though, showing his vaunted toughness. Heads may be coming together, as happens with a lefty versus a righty fighter. Manny showing his speed, but hasn’t yet shown the in-and-out action he can do. Manny with a big flurry! Margarito smiles for a moment, but then feels the speed and power that can add up from a fighter like Manny Pacquiao. Pacquiao looking very comfortable this round. Manny looking REALLY sharp. Margarito just short on a long right hand. Manny staying outside, both guys still doing nice work offensively. For a guy with a six-inch reach advantage, Margarito is not taking advantage of it, because Manny won’t let him. Manny charges to end the round.

Summary: Pacquiao’s speed proves the difference this round. He’s landing nice, hard shots. Even though Margarito isn’t yet feeling them, this is the sort of work that can add up.

Score: Pacquiao 10-9, Pacquiao 29-28
