Pacquiao vs Margarito

There’s no deal yet on where the Pacquiao vs Margarito fight will be held but according to some sources that Pacquiao prefer the Monterrey in Mexico for they’re November 13 match against a Mexican Antonio Margarito. The Fighter of the Decade added that he is willing to the possibility that he might slug it out with Margarito in Mexico, should the Mexican fail to secure a boxing license in Nevada. Pacquiao also said that he agree to a catchweight of 150 lb, no heavier than that, when he faces Antonio Margarito. In fact Antonio Margarito has agreed to meet Manny Pacquiao at the catchweight of 150 lbs, or 4 lbs below the 154 limit. Manny Pacquiao said in an interview “I like Mexico. It’s nice in Mexico. Let’s try Mexico,” when asked where he’d like to face the former welterweight champion. Pacquiao said he hasn’t signed the fight contract yet, but will soon go through it. But the reigning pound-for-pound champion said the fight for the vacant WBC super-welterweight title is bound to happen. Most likely, it’s Margarito,” said Pacquiao after negotiations for a super fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. bogged down. He said the fight with Mayweather, where the fighters could have easily earned $40 million each, did not happen because the undefeated American doesn’t want it to happen. “They never run out of reasons saying why it won’t happen. But the truth is they don’t want the fight. Sila ang may ayaw,” said Pacquiao. If the Pacquiao vs Margarito fight will happen in Mexico then thousands of Mexican supporters will be against him that will be a great advantage for Margarito. Pacquiao has no problem if he faced Margarito in his hometown Mexico. Actually he’s excited to fight in Mexico; it will be he’s first time to fight there.
