Pacquiao Vs. Margarito Round-By-Round Coverage: Manny Takes Round Six, But Margarito Scores Big

Blow-By-Blow: Watching the difference in speed is amazing. Imagine watching LeBron play Bruce Bowen one-on-one; it’s a dynamic, great fighter against a one-dimensional guy, who is very strong in his one dimension, but just cannot keep pace. And Margarito, to his credit, is fighting as well as he can. Great six or seven punches unanswered from Manny. We are, right now (and anything can happen), talking about an all-time great pound-for-pound fighter. What Manny Pacquiao is doing with a 32-year-old, much bigger fighter, is amazing. Manny taking half a break, but still winning this round. Margarito just can’t keep up with him. Margarito hurts Manny just as I say that! Manny gets away, but here comes Margarito! Big left by Manny! Now Manny on the ropes, Margarito throwing, and MANNY COMES BACK! Great round!

Summary: A wonderful round. The atmosphere is incredible. Antonio hurt him to the body this round, but it wasn’t enough to pull it out. Manny HAS to stay off the ropes, or he can get in trouble. They know that.

Score: Pacquiao 10-9, Pacquiao 59-55
