Pacquiao Picks Margarito For Novermber Fight

July 24, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

The dream fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. will never take place this fall. Mayweather does not seem in a rush, not even expressing any interest in fighting Pacquiao. However, Top Rank Boxing promoter Bob Arum needs to book a fight for the Filipino boxer-slash-singer-slash-congressman who has a very tight schedule given so many hats that he is wearing. Now it looks like Pacquiao, the world’s number one pound for pound fighter has found a ring partner in November.

Earlier today, Arum announced that Manny Pacquiao is fighting Antonio Margarito on November 13. Initially their choices were between Miguel Cotto and Margarito. They deemed it more competitive to fight Margarito as Pacquaio has beaten Cotto before.

Manny Pacquiao can be a big draw in pay-per-view and live ticket sales due to his exciting style in the ring. The Margarito match, however, is not expected to be as big as that of Mayweather, the former pound-for-pound king.

If there is any consolation, Pacquao is gunning for his eighth world title in as many weight classes. Pacquiao and Margarito will be fighting for the vacant super welterweight title. Still, this championship fight in November is nowhere close to the aborted Mayweather superfight.
