Manny Pacquiao will be in for a tough task on November 13, he will have to go through hell and back if he plans to go the 12 harsh rounds with the ‘Tijuana Tornado’ Antonio Margarito.
Every fight that Pacquiao has fought he was considered the smaller man, but those fights were against bigger guys at catchweight not allowed to come in over a certain weight limit and dehydrated from struggling to make weight.
A real true champion doesn’t need a “Yellow Powder” of muscle building supplements given to him to make him stronger. Guys like Roberto Duran and Henry Armstrong never used supplements they were old school and true bad asses; they went up in weight with no catchweight and challenged men for their titles at the champions weight class not at a favorable catchweight to give the challenger the advantages.
Erik Morales beat Manny Pacquiao with pressure and boxing, Margarito will do the same but this time he will have the size advantage and chin to shrug off any hard punch Manny lands on him. Pacquiao’s power is highly overrated, his only one punch knock out of his entire career was against a drunk Ricky Hatton.
Antonio Margarito at 5 foot 11 will bully the 5 foot 5 Pacquiao and cause Manny to look at his trainer Freddie Roach in hopes for him to throw the towel. Somewhere in the fight Manny will realize his hardest punch cannot hurt Margarito, so he will probably take a knee to avoid further punishment and try to catch a break, but once he gets back up Margarito will pressure him and make him surrender.

We know that Manny Pacquiao has been knocked out by body shots and dropped by a soft jab early in his career. The new version of Antonio Margarito is more focused, he has a lot to prove and he has a second chance to redeem his name by beating the Filipino politician/boxer Manny Pacquiao and restoring pride back to Mexican boxing by being the first Mexican to knockout the Pacman.
After Margarito beats Manny Pacquiao, I hope people give him his credit and don’t make up excuses saying Manny was too small or Manny wasn’t focused.
