Blow-By-Blow: Should note that Manny is showing very slight evidence of some damage to the face, not unlike the Clottey fight in March. Margarito coming back with big shots on the ropes! Manny gets out, but there was some great stuff there! Manny throws HARD left hands! Manny taking over with hard shots! Margarito standing in there! Margarito’s legs look like they’re going just a bit, but not enough to count him out. He’s so tough. Margarito staying close to Manny, but Manny now on the ropes. Big left hook from Margarito! Manny just might be slowing down enough for Margarito to land his big shots, but then here comes Manny’s speed! Right hand down the pipe from Margarito. Manny on the ropes again. Manny firing, but the more he gets on the ropes, the worse off he is. Both guys throwing! Margarito landing! Manny landing! What a fight this is!
Summary: Manny takes another round, but folks, this is not as one-sided as it might seem. This is an INCREDIBLE offensive display from both fighters.
Score: Pacquiao 10-9, Pacquiao 79-73
