What to Expect from Manny Pacquiao Vs Antonio Margarito Nov. 13 Fight? The whole boxing universe is looking forward to the 13th of November when Manny Pacquiao takes on Antonio Margarito for the main event of the WBC. The speculation about this match is over the top and people, be they fans or media people, don’t seem to get enough of predicting what could happen when the world’s best boxer gets in the ring once again.
Pacquiao Vs Margarito Preview: During the initial previews of the match the media was focusing on the reports that PacMan wasn’t actually training at his best and was getting distracted by other sports and his involvement in politics. But well, there will always be a section that would believe that Manny being pushed to the limits even is next to impossible.
However, that there is mixed reactions in the world of boxing makes a statement of its own. After all, the Filipino boxer hasn’t lost a match for the last six years and there must be something to it. And then there is the Margarito factor; Antonio is certainly not a fighter to be taken lightly.
However, one speculation that has been totally eliminated now is that of Manny being distracted by things other than the sport. He is training great lately and Freddie Roach acknowledges. Another thing is that the fight is being betted heavily on and to nobody’s surprised that it’s stacked in favor of Manny.
But the match is certainly going to be competitive and great to watch. If anything then Pacquiao would have to be up pace to reach the weight division and that’s a task in itself. The two boxers of contrasting styles makes for an interesting watch. As for Margarito, it will be a matter of surviving multiple rounds.
Pacquiao, who intends to fight at least one more fight after this, would make great pitting against Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Of course, Paul Williams may be a good second choice.
