Filipino boxing hero Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is determined to beat Mexican Antonio Margarito in their November 13 bout. According to a GMANews article, Pacquiao will be using his tried and tested formula to defeat Margarito, SPEED. This formula is Pacquiao‘s main weapon when he brought down top boxers such as Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto and Joshua Clottey. Margarito is enjoying height and reach advantage against Pacquiao. However, the speed of Pacquiao inside the ring is something to be admired and this includes his hands, body movement and footwork.

Pacquiao is now on the final stretch of his preparations for the Margarito bout at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California. The Pacquiao-Margarito bout is a 12-round title fight for the World Boxing Council (WBC) Super-Welterweight Championship belt. Pacquiao, the world’s top pound-for-pound boxer, is confident that he will be able to offset Margarito‘s reach advantage with his own edge in speed.

The  three-time Fighter of the Year, Pacquiao, is currently the Representative of Sarangani province’s lone district.

Just like in any of his previous fights, Pacquiao is not underestimating Margarito, who will become his biggest opponent in his 15-years as a professional boxer.

During the Pacquiao-Margarito bout, Pacman will be cheered by his wife Jinkee together with close relatives who will be arriving in Hollywood five days before his contingent heads to Texas via a chartered plane.
