Blow-By-Blow: So here we are, the final round of a dominant performance from Manny Pacquiao. Can the Filipino hang on and finish this out? Manny circling and “on the bike,” as they say. He doesn’t want to step in on Margarito and get hit with anything big. And yet Manny is still landing more and harder shots. “Na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye” chant goes up. Pacquiao staying away. Margarito still can’t do enough. Margarito just can’t find openings. Manny moving, but also landing. This is an awe-inspiring performance. Good shots from Manny. Manny still beating him up. He’s just so good. Manny pouring it on in the final minute to assure he wins this round. Margarito with a good right hand, but Manny doesn’t budge. And we’re winding this down — Manny Pacquiao wins another round.
Summary: Yet another dominant round. Good fight, and Margarito gave his best. Tense fight all the way through. Antonio Margarito proves his toughness and resolve, but Manny Pacquiao proves he’s the better man — by far.
Score: Pacquiao 10-9, Pacquiao 119-109
