This weekend sees one of the boxing fights of the year when two greats clash in a match made at junior middleweight
Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito
But this is no ordinary fight as Pacquiao steps up in weight yet again for the fight at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington in front of a crowd that could draw 70,000
Live on HBO Saturday night 9-00pm Eastern Time – Service PPV
So what about the fight well Manny will giving away 6 inches in height maybe up to 10 pounds in weight on fight night and will be outstretched on reach
Trainer Freddie Roach says Margarito punches like a girl!
So we can expect explosive action on the night with Roach saying that this could be another Ricky Hatton style night and hey what a demolition job that was!
Team Pacquiao Roach will have worked out all the Margarito weaknesses whether they be that he makes mistakes going forward – going back – or moving from left to right – or ducking up or down. What ever the weakness they will know and they will have worked out a way for Manny to connect with a knock out punch
Now for example if Antonio Margarito has a weakness when coming forward then the fight could be over inside two rounds ala Ricky Hatton style. This could be the scenario Margarito is moving forward Manny see the opening and bang he lands either a vicious left or right handed punch. That’s it good night Antonio as his lights go out!
If his weakness is going back or back peddling it could take longer to catch up with him but one thing is certain Manny Pacquiao will knock this guy out no later than 7 or 8 rounds into the fight
