Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito Clashes in November  | read this item

Pacquiao vs Mayweather An Impossible Dream – Bob Arum had finally settled for Mexican, Antoni Margarito for Manny Pacquiao’s battle in November 2010. Arum said that he prefers MArgarito over Cotto because it will offer a fresh chapter into the pound-for-pound’s fighting career.

Last week, Floyd Mayweather Jr. slammed the door on Bob Arum and Team Pacquiao by not even bothering with their contract deadline. Mayweather even said that boxing is not in his mind at the moment.

Antonio Margarito had been a controversial fighter since hardening materials were found in her boxing wraps prior to a fight with Shane Mosley. Margarito was later defeated by Mosley in the ninth round.

“But putting aside the controversy about the wraps, the one thing you know for sure with a Margarito fight is that it will be a hell of a fight for however long it lasts.,” says Bob Arum.

The battle, Pacquiao vs Margarito will happen on November 13, 2010. The two will square-off for the vacant super welterweight.

Venue is still unsure and depends on whether Margarito will get a professional boxing license in Nevada or not. For now the venue will eaither be in MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, or if Margarito can get licensed, it will be in Monterrey, Mexico.

    I am excited to see this match . I am sure this is going to open doors to kick ass mayweather should they meet up this year or early next year.

  2. Manny vs Antonio this is a great challenge for the both of them. Both are at the peaks of their career. Antonio is good, but Manny has already proven that he is unbeatable, fearless, skillful and a great giant killer. Antonio is the last great Mexican world champion standing. When Manny beats Margarito like other great Mexican champions, he will be considered the best in the world. With this fight there is no question that Manny will shatter Oscars vs Floyd’s record ppv of 2.44 million. Its time to shock the world again. I would think that Pacquiao would take early rounds with his speed and proven ability to get inside bigger men with footwork and head movement. However Pacquiao has been hurt by fighters with far less power than Margarito like Juan Manuel Marquez and eventually Manny would slow down or Antonio would catch him and overwhelm the smaller man. I haven’t seen margarito fights but If he’s that good. I don’t think pacman will back down a fight against margarito. Pacquiao is the kind of fighter who likes to fight stronger opponents. He likes to be the underdog. Just like when he first fought barrera when he (barrera) was on his prime (2003).The challenge like this will make pacman more excited more motivated to train harder to become the best boxer that he can be.
