I am a true-blooded and a proud Filipino, but I bet for Mexican boxer Antonio “Tijuana Tornado” Margarito. Not because I like him, but I pity him.
Everybody loves a winner. And Pacquiao is enjoying it.
Admittedly, I’m not a fan of Manny Pacquiao. But his recent fight with Margarito gave me a good impression for him.
Pacquiao is not a killer. He had his chances to knockout Margarito but he did not do so. The Filipinos’ champ took mercy on a bloodied opponent by pulling his hardest punches in the final minutes.
He let Antonio finished the 12-round fight with his pride.
With 474 power punches compared to Margarito’s 229, Pacquiao won the bout in a unanimous decision.
Based on the fight contract, Pacquiao is guaranteed $15 million while Margarito is assured of $3 million. Both fighters will also receive a percentage of the revenues based on the pay per view buys.
I wonder if the constituents of the Sarangani Representative will have a share of his million dollars from the boxing fight.
