Pacquiao wins Unanimous over Margarito

Google Advertisements

The fight that many called impossible is over. After 12 rounds of devastation, no fighter went down but only one remained unblemished to my surprise. I must admit that although I am Filipino, I never expected the result of Pacquiao vs Margarito would be the way it ended. Margarito was all beaten up by a smaller man, a man with shorter reach and at least 5 pounds lighter than him. Pacman prevailed in all 12 rounds and although it’s a shame to admit perhaps for Margarito fans, the Tijuana Tornado did not make it and did not seem to even put a decent punch enough to cause Pacman to get any bruise to his face.

Me and my father watched the live streaming fight pay per view at SM cinema because I was able to buy 2 tickets to the fight 3 days ago. We had a FREE T-Shirt souvenir of Pacquiao vs Margarito, a coffee, a donut and a set of hotdog sandwitch with drinks. It was all fun at first while watching the fight in the first 3 rounds but when Margarito was all bruised after those 3 rounds as a former champ, looking as if buffled how the little man in Pacquiao could be so elusive of all his past opponents, I felt like I couldn’t watch the punishment. TM remained beaten. What’s worse of all is his pride as a boxer and as a champion who promised he’d knock out Pacman and beat him in their match.

But I must say he did his best and I strongly admire people with such determination. Tony, for me, you are a true champ. There will come a time that people will realize that not all warriors beaten and defeated are defeated in spirit. Some, like you, I must say with pride, remained unblemished when we talk about honor. You are a true man. You’ve been beaten but you fought your way clean and you fought just like what a warrior should. 12 rounds is not enough it seems and somewhere in the middle of those 12 rounds, I know you knew you can’t win but you continued with your task and that is to give it your best shot.

From a Filipino in me and in Pacquiao,,,, Tony Margarito, you are a true champ and a fighter with the spirit of a thousand warriors. You did it your way and though not enough, still, you did it. You gave us and you gave Manny Pacquiao a history to remember. We salute you as a boxer and as a person with a big heart.
