Blow-By-Blow: Margarito’s right eye is swelling closed, moused up, and eventually he won’t see the left hand. Margarito fighting hard, but Pacquiao is starting to use his right hand more. Manny backed down, but he comes right back and throws, and gets off the ropes before Antonio can get there. What a great display of speed now from Pacquiao. He’s just taking over in moments. He’s making rounds convincing, and this is with Margarito doing the best you can expect. Margarito goes to the body, Manny fires back and cracks Antonio to the head. Manny on the ropes, Margarito throwing. Big right hook by Manny! Manny landing hard shots! Margarito being beaten up, but hanging in there. Margarito with clean shots, Manny stuns him with a right hook! What a fight this is!

Summary: Margarito just will not give up. He’s stalking, pressuring, and staying there. He’s also getting beaten up by Manny Pacquiao. Pacquiao takes another round, mostly dominant, and Margarito is being pounded. His eye is nearly closed shut now.
