Pacquiao vs Margarito Results of Boxing

That’s the rare air where Manny Pacquiao finds himself after Saturday’s comprehensive unanimous decision over Antonio Margarito for the WBC super welterweight title at Cowboys Stadium.

With a punishing exhibition of power, accuracy, hand speed and ring generalship, Pacquiao racked up a lopsided lead on the scorecards early before a crowd of 41,734. He bloodied Margarito badly in the middle rounds, reducing the Mexican’s right eye to a thin slit. Then, he pulled Margarito to the finish on a rope, showing uncommon clemency by refusing to go for the knockout against a prideful opponent who seemed incapable of defending himself. Pancho Villa himself would have scored it a shutout.
