Pacquiao-Margarito fight: Speed vs Size and million dollars apart



On Saturday, 14 November (PHL time), the world will witness another fight by Filipino boxer Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao (51-3-2) with 38 knockouts against Mexican Antonio Margarito (38-6-0) with 27 knockouts.
The 'David and Goliath' tandem--depending on how you define it--will battle for the WBC Junior Middleweight Championship belt.
Money is definitely on the table, pay-per-views, and bets including those of the more than 50 high-ranking Philippine government officials in Pacman's entourage.
Boxing enthusiasts say that it is speed and skills over stats. That is very true for Pacman's boxing history when he won against many opponents much larger than him physically.
So, for those who are interested to know how they measure, see the record below. Good luck to you Rep. Manny Pacquiao!
