PPV Boxing: Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito Fight Time – Manny “PACMAN” Pacquiao is aiming for his eight title in his fight against Mexican Antonio Margarito. Margarito’s camp previously said that they will bring the downfall and defeat of Manny Pacquiao, however the “People’s Champ” said that he is well prepared for this battle and he believes he can win against an opponent like Margarito.
The Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito weigh-in was held at the Cowboys Stadium and broadcast live from Dallas Texas. Both fighter made it to the 150 lbs catchweight limit and will be able to compete for the vacant WBC junior middleweight bought. However, speculations were made after the weigh-in regarding the capability of Manny Pacquiao to defeat Antonio Margarito.
During the weigh-in Margarito weighs 150 lbs which is just enough to be able to match the limit, however, Manny Pacquiao’s weight was only registered at 144.6 lbs. This is a huge discrepancy from Margarito’s weight which makes Pacquiao more lighter and well for some experts is not a good shape to face Margarito. Pacquiao’s previous statement on the program 24/7 indicates that he is training at about 147-148 lbs. and is not planning to go heavier and match the strength and power of his opponent, however today it seems he is way lighter than everyone expected.
It is however too early to say that Manny Pacquiao will lose this fight against Antonio Margarito only because he weighs lighter. Their weight when they face each other on the ring tomorrow will not matter since the official weigh-in was over. I believe that Pacman did this in order to psyche out Margarito and lead him to believe that Pacquiao is lighter and he can defeat him easily. In boxing there are those moves which happens outside of the ring which eventually affects the boxers during fight time.
Good luck to both fighters as they battle … have a great fight. Watch out for Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito live online and on your favorite channels particularly on HBO PayPer View.
