Manny Pacquiao is one of those fighters that if you have him hurt or knock him down in a fight, you better hope that he doesn’t recover and make sure you put him down for the ten count or else he will unleash a furious rage upon you.
Many times when Manny Pacquiao fights, he sometimes takes pity on his opponents, but the moment he gets knocked down and he recovers or he gets a cut over his eye he increases his intensity.
An example of this was when he was just coasting through his most recent fight with Sugar Shane Mosley, he didn’t want to hurt Mosley, but in round ten when Mosley shoved him to the canvas and it was ruled a knock down, Manny’s primal instinct kicked in and he thought in his mind that a knock down could cost him the fight, even though, he was winning on all cards. From that point on he charged Mosley with a fury, Mosley kept running back and tasted a few power shots that hurt him and then he was saved by the bell. A few short moments later Mosley wanted to quit the fight telling his corner his foot hurt and he couldn’t move, even though, he was running faster than Usain Bolt in the ring and that probably caused his blister. Shane knew he pissed off Pacman, all Mosley did was to survive and touch gloves to be friends with Manny so he would be spared, but when Manny wants to, he can really put power on his punches, Mosley felt that power and said he never been hit that hard before. Manny has the type of power that rattles your brain for an entire round after being hit with it.
When Manny Pacquiao fought Jorge Solis in 2007, he wasn’t even 100 percent, Freddie Roach was training Oscar De La Hoya for his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny looked bored in the ring against Solis. But the moment Manny was cut over his eye in round six, he stepped on the gas and when the bleeding got worse in the 8th he blitzed through Solis dropping him twice and stopping him in the 8th round.
Manny lost three times in his career, twice by KO, and once by hard fought decision. This goes to show you that must fight Manny Pacquiao without fear and either knock him out or fight him hard to beat him. You have to be able to try and impose your will on him or else if you try to bully him like Cotto, Hatton, and Margarito did and he doesn’t wilt, you are in for a world of hurt, because if you try to bully the Pacman, he will gobble you up just like the video game. If he can take your punch you better hope and pray that he shows mercy on you like he did to Cotto, Margarito and Mosley or else you could wind up another knockout victim like Ricky Hatton or Jorge Solis.
Juan Manuel Marquez has a difficult task ahead, he has signed on to face his long time rival Manny Pacquiao for a third time, this time, he is dealing with a stronger and harder hitting Pacquiao than he fought twice before. Marquez is bragging that he will KO Manny Pacquiao and that he beat him 2 times already but was robbed, the more Marquez talks the more it will fuel the Pacman’s fire.
Marquez will be in the best shape of his life and he knows that he has to be in the best shape of his life because he is dealing with the pound for pound best in the world, and he knows if he hurts Manny Pacquiao, he will need to finish him or else he could be the next brutally battered victim.
