Manny Pacquiao Loses (Kidding!)

First off, Antonio Margarito looked really bad! Seeing the wounds on his face and the way his eyes were almost closed made me feel really sorry for him. Well, what's a really beaten-down face when there's a multi-million dollar prize in waiting, right?! So yeah, congratulations as well to him. Hopefully, he's the last Mexican that Pacquiao will fight.

Some people have already made theories that Pacquiao IS the Muhammad Ali of this generation. Surely, he has already secured his spot among the all-time greats (must have made his mark during his twin Hatton/Dela Hoya wins) but for him to be placed right under THE Ali is something else.

As a Filipino, I might be biased but I think he ranks among the top 4 boxers of all time: Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Sugar Ray Leonard and Manny Pacquiao. Such an esteemed grouping. Any violent reactions are welcome.

Meanwhile, I gathered here different thoughts from different people regarding Manny Pacquiao:

We love our sports figures in the U.S., but he’s bigger than a sports figure over there. When he speaks, it transcends all class and cultural boundaries. Everyone listens. He’s a one in a 92 million story.
-Gary A. Poole, author of "PacMan"

I can’t think of any other person in the world who has ever been so adored by his people.
-Bob Simon, CBS Correspondent

It was awe-inspiring. I was so touched by what he was doing...there’s never been anyone like this kid and there probably never will be.
-Bob Arum, Pacquiao's publicist

Manny Pacquiao was once again masterful, beating Antonio Margarito so frightfully that Margarito’s face looked as it had been pounded repeatedly by a club.
-Kevin Iole, Yahoo! Sports Correspondent

Manny is the best fighter in the world, He is just too fast—very, very quick.
-Robert Garcia, Margarito's trainer

There was no way I was gong to quit. I’m a Mexican, we fight until the end.
-Antonio Margarito

I can’t believe that I beat someone this big and this strong. It’s hard. I really do my best to win the fight.
-Manny Pacquiao
