Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, Still the Greatest Boxer of the World

Yes, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, is still the Greatest Boxer of the World! Before the advent of Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, I had no interest in boxing. Pacquiao has turned me into an avid fan.  And now, I am also writing about it; one thing I never did in the past, because I am not a sportswriter.  But I would like to express my point of view as part of the mesmerized audience during the recently concluded Pacquiao-Margarito World Welterweight Bout in Arlington, Texas; November 13, 2010.

Even before the fight, Manny demonstrated humility and nobility.  He never bragged about his previous victories. He is a true warrior who credits all his outstanding triumphs to the Omniscient and Omnipresent Being above the heavens.  This I find touching and heartwarming.

The scale at the beginning of the fight showed 70% to 30% in favor of Antonio Margarito. But as the boxing bout progressed the scale turned in favor of Pacman. The 1st few rounds defied science and significantly established that speed is mightier than height, weight and hand reach.

At the 4rd round, Margarito has started to slow down because of the hard punches he received from Pacquiao.  As I was watching, I marveled at the speed and the professional strategy that Pacquiao demonstrated as he landed more upper cuts and jabs on the bloated face of Margarito.

I was on edge when Pacquiao received some blows at the middle of the bout from the indefatigable Mexican boxer. Margarito put up a good fight, but Pacquiao was the better fighter.

At the start of round 12, I noticed Pacquiao, slowing down, not because he was hurt, but because – this is my opinion- he seems to be giving some leeway for Margarito not to end up being knocked out.  He is a genuine gentleman.

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao won his 8th title by unanimous decision and was proclaimed as the champion of the Pacquiao-Margarito World Welterweight Bout. This unprecedented victory confirmed his title as the “Greatest Boxer of the World.”
