The final fight of the Golden Boy and the fight which kickstarted Pacquiao to superstardom.
This beat down probably was the beginning of Oscar's downward spiral in his personal life
Yeah, I remember when the Golden Girl ducked Antonio Margarito to fight a midget, only to have the midget pepper him into quitting on his stool.
ODLH one of the most overrated fighters of the last 20 years.
DLH would've beaten Margo, style makes fights, Dlh used to eat pressure fighters alive, especially slow ones who were wide open like Margo
Damn. That went by fast.
Oscar chose poorly and it cost him. No way he could boil back down so far in weight and still be effective. While style wise Margo fit him to a tee, I don't think he would've been strong enough to keep Margo off him either.
At least Oscar made all the big fights. He lost a few, but that's what happens when you actually face the best.
Please change your moniker. I really don't want to be confused with such an idiot. You're criticizing a completely shot Oscar who was nowhere near his prime with all types of drug and alcohol issues at the time.
That was a fight I( thoroughly enjoyed watching
Fishnets bragged he wanted the winner of Margarito[ Cottp to "Go out in a blaze of glory" LOL. When he saw what Tony did to Cotto he chickened out/ Instead he picked on little Manny
BIG MISTAKE !! Manny kicked his candyass sp bad he WUIT on his stool I loved iit
Wow, the years do fly past. I didn't get to see this one live since it coincided with the weekend before exams. During the build up I'd assumed Oscar would 'Ruelas' Manny because of the size disparity. But at the weigh in Oscar had that weird look about his body from the weight cut, where his arms, chest, and shoulders had a weird, shrunken look. I knew things would go bad for Oscar.
Both Dela Fishnets & he IV mam Mayweather were scared stiff of Antonio Margarito
In your little mind every fighter is "terrified " of your favorite fighters
This is the fight that really got me hooked with boxing. Seems like it was just yesterday, getting Dream Fight cable advertisements in the mail.
This was Pacquiaos favorite fight. This was the fight that made Pacquiao a global icon. But it was far from his most important fight for his legacy. And actually most of his prime occurred before this fight actually.
And still going down the pooper
Then went on to beat both Margartio and Cotto
Tony made Floyd literally **** his pants by just politely asking " Why wont you fight me" Loon it up its on YouTube video
