I agree also that the Margo fight took a real toll on him, he really took a bit of a beating & thats overlooked by the shutout but Margo hurt Pacman real bad & Margo hurt ever fucker. It shows up in the afterfight HBO interview, manny is in real bad pain, they recken he slept in the featal position for 3 days such was the trauma he suffered from those margo body shots.
