Pacquiao Vs. Margarito Round-By-Round Coverage: Manny Continues To Dominate Action-Packed Fight

Blow-By-Blow: Manny starting to show some fatigue against the bigger man. Manny Steward just compared this to the famous fight between Sugar Ray Robinson and Joey Maxim. That could set in. Last round, according to CompuBox, Margarito landed the most punches that have ever been landed on Manny in one round. Margarito starting to press, and then Manny lands a big flurry! Margarito is showing a ton of guts, which he was famous for long before he was infamous for the wrap scandal in 2009. Margarito throwing, but Manny throwing more. Manny seems to know he can’t knock out Margarito, but Manny isn’t fighting like it, if that makes sense. Manny winning rounds, but this is a TENSE fight — Margarito could strike at any moment. This is basically the highest-end fight we were going to get.

Summary: It’s speed. Manny’s speed is banging Margarito up, and has shut his right eye. Manny landing more, throwing more, doing more. But he’s starting to show signs of fatigue, and Margarito is not. As much punishment as Manny has dished out, he’s tiring faster.

Score: Pacquiao 10-9, Pacquiao 89-82
