The World’s best pound-for-pound fighter seven title holder Manny Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 knockouts) had a sub par training camp in the Philippines before arriving in the states to finish training for his November 13th Dallas Cowboy Stadium fight with Antonio Margarito (38-6, 27 KOs).

  1. Teddy Atlas is an expert on boxing and I respect his opinion. I do however believe this is a no brainer, pacman all the way.

  2. Margarito don’t stand a chance! I’ve seen a lot of his fights and he isn’t that good. I don’t blame Pacman for taking him lightly.
