Manny Pacquiao defeated Antonio Margarito via Unanimous Decision; Pacquiao won 8th World Title

Boxing Champ Manny Pacquiao achieved another greatness in his boxing career as he defeated the Mexican Tornado Antonio Margarito to capture his 8th World Title (World Boxing Council super welterweight title) via Unanimous Decision at the Cowboys Stadium.

The Pacman showed speed, great footwork and combos of punches in edging out the much taller and heavier Margarito. Pacquiao won round after round putting Margarito into bloody, heavily bruised and nearly blind fighter. The champ is delivering a four or five-punch combination that snapped his oppenent's head back.

Before the fight, both camps traded cheating allegations. Manny Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, complained that Antonio Margarito had taken Ephedra, a banned stimulant, prior to their World Boxing Council super welterweight title fight at Cowboys Stadium and demanded an immediate urinalysis. For Margarito's part, trainer Robert Garcia was complaining about the way Pacquiao’s hands were wrapped and was insisting they be re-wrapped. The commission approved the wrappings.

Margarito would be tested for a complete drug screening by the boxing regulators after the fight.

Pacquiao capturing the World Boxing Council super welterweight title, the score card: 120-108, 118-110, 119-109.

Once again, the biggest sports hero of the Philippines made history!

Congratulations Manny Pacquiao!!!
