Manny Pacquiao: Pound for Pound King of the Boxing World

Today, November 14, 2010 (November 13 in Dallas), Filipino boxing great and "Pambansang Kamao" Manny Pacquiao made history after winning by unanimous decision against Mexico's Antonio Margarito [at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas, USA].

He is now the first and only boxer ever to win eight world titles in eight different weight divisions (breaking his own record). Pacquiao has won the world boxing titles in the flyweight (112 pounds), super bantamweight (122 lb), featherweight (126 lb), super featherweight (130 lb), lightweight (135 lb), light welterweight (140 lb), welterweight (147 lb), and super welterweight (154 lb) divisions.

No boxer has won eight world titles in eight weight divisions before and the next best was his own record too (seven world titles in seven weight divisions).

The victory secured Pacquiao's place as one of the greatest boxers of all time alongside Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson. The victory reassured Pacquiao's hold as the world's best pound-for-pound fighter.

Hopefully, this victory will persuade the legendary boxer to stay active in professional boxing and pursue that one impending fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. (Floyd Chickenweather/Gayweather). The mega-fight against Mayweather should keep Pacquiao busy and away from the corrupt Philippine politics and the overrated Philippine show-business (both banking for his popularity for their own interests not of the Filipino people). Although, the more he stay active in professional boxing the more he became ineffective representative for his province in the Congress. Maybe one last fight from Pacman to end that big debate between Pacquiao fans (including Pactards/Pac-Crabs) and Mayweather fans (including Flomos).

Margarito receiving the Pacquiao Special!

Pacquiao Career Win-Loss Record: 52 wins (38 KOs)/3 losses/2 draws

Anyway, Margarito down, Mayweather next!

[Although, Antonio Margarito took the beating of a lifetime... some say the fight should have been stop early but Margarito said it all (in an after match interview): "He's very fast. It's hard to land a punch on that guy, but there's no way I was going to quit in the fight, I am a Mexican and we fight to the end."]
