    ARLINGTON, Texas – 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.Pacquiao won a unanimous one-sided decision in a blowout from the opening seconds of the fight to capture the World Boxing Council super welterweight title before 41,734 in-awe fans at Cowboys Stadium.

    P
    acquiao’s title belt, coming against an opponent who had a 17-pound weight advantage when the bell rang,

    165-148, was the eighth in his illustrious career. Pacquiao has won world titles at 112, 122, 126, 130, 135, 140, 147 and now 154 pounds.

    Judges Jurgen Langos had it 120-109, Glen Crocker had it 118-110 and Oren Schellenberger had it 119-109 for Pacquiao. Yahoo! Sports scored it 120-107 for Pacquiao, giving Pacquiao a 10-8 edge in the 10th round when he dominated tremendously.

    Margarito, fighting for the first time in the U.S. since Jan. 24, 2009, when he was caught with an illegal knuckle pad in his gloves before a loss to Shane Mosley, was never in the fight. Pacquiao’s speed was blinding and was the difference in the fight.

    [Is Manny Pacquiao this generation’s Muhammad Ali?]

    Pacquiao was hurt when Margarito landed a combination to the ribs, but he spun off the ropes and landed a three-punch combination to the head. Margarito’s right eye was swollen grotesquely, beginning in the fourth. By the 10th round, the left eye was a slit, too.

    [Video: Pacquiao the politician]

    Pacquiao was looking at referee Laurence Cole late in the fight, asking him to stop it. Pacquiao said he eased off in the 12th round. “I did my best,” Pacquiao said. “He’s strong. He’s a very tough fighter. I can’t believe [he took those punches].”

    Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, added, “We didn’t lose a round. I wish they had stopped the fight. They probably ruined his career by not stopping the fight.”

    Just watched the fight now, it was pretty awesome, props to both the boxers. It got rid of the bitter taste of the Haye vs Harrison fight that I watched last night, which was just garbage.

    Why is this in BMTM?
    Nah, don't count on Mayweather. There are better boxers Manny can fight with. I believe that Manny doesn't use steroids... **** those who blame him just cause he's successful.

    i will argue that he is a horrible congressman, cause he works hard, his determination is great, all he has to do is study study study and you'll see

    The one reason I don't trust him(it's all about trust) as a congressman is because he advertised Villar.

    Ouch, Margarito fractured something near his right eye and is in need of surgery... Poor shmuck, should've begged for his life after 7 or 8 rounds. Sometimes too much heart is bad for you.
