Manny Pacquiao proved he’s the pound-for-pound King of the Ring once more as he toppled off Miguel Cotto in their match-up dubbed as Firepower: Pacquiao VS Cotto at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas Nevada.
Cotto’s supporters were right in one thing though, he’ll push the bout up to 12 rounds. It’s just that coach Freddie Roach is also right that Manny’s got the speed and in perfect shape to knockout the Puerto Rican champ. Pacman actually manage to outwit and outpunch Cotto to be knocked down three times.
The two great fighters actually gave their best shot, but there’s only gonna be one left standing. Manny Pacquiao now holds the first boxer to garner seven title belts in seven weight divisions. Now, Bob Arum’s job is to get a fight with Floyd Mayweatherman Jr.
But for now, celebration has got to be in place for Team Pacquiao and the land of the mighty… Mabuhay ka Pilipinas! …at Mabuhay ka Manny Pacquiao! Kami’y kasama mo!
