At the first few rounds the two boxer show their enthusiasm.In the fourth round Margarito had a bad hit on his face.There was blood under his right eye.In the following rounds, you can see Margarito's eagerness.His strategy is to pin Manny on the rope and throw punches.However, Manny manages to escape.Manny dominates the match but he slows a bit and had trouble escaping in round eight and nine when Margarito took advantage while his opponent is cornered.In the eleventh round, Margarito was badly hit. The boxing game could have been stopped since he had no more chance of winning but the referee didn't call it.In addition, Margarito showed that he has still stamina and can accept the punches so the game continues. You can see in Pacquiao that he glanced at the referee waiting for him to stop the fight.Manny shows respect to his opponent.I can feel that.
CONGRATULATIONS Manny Pacquiao, a Filipino Congressman and the "Pambansang Kamao" of the Philippines for winning another world title! We are proud of you.
