Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito Boxing Odds & Prediction
By Brad Marchetti (Nov 13, 2010) Doghouse Boxing
Tonight in the fight of the year for 2010, Manny Pacquiao will go for his eighth world title against treacherous Antonio Margarito at 9 PM ET on PPV. The pound-4-pound king Pacquiao, 51-3-2, 38 KO’s, weighed in at 144.6 Lbs. today while Margarito, 38-6, 27 KO’s, came in at the fights contracted limit of 150 Lbs. On fight night Pacquiao will be at roughly a 20 Lb. weight disadvantage but that is only a small reason why I believe Margarito will upset the supposedly invincible Pac-Man as a +300 underdog.

The Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito Odds have Pacquiao at -400 on the Moneyline.

If this was a 4-round preliminary fight Pacquiao would outpoint Margarito by a wide margin. This is the paid ranks however and the steel jawed stalker will rattle the smaller man in the late rounds. Pacquiao will utilize his outstanding hand and footspeed to pepper the pressuring Margarito but around the 5th the Mexican will begin closing ground. Digs on the inside to the body will start to take the wheels off the speedster and uppercuts to the face will bust up the Filipino’s tender mug. The Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito Total Rounds Prop is at 9.0 Rounds with the UNDER at -135 Boxing Betting Odds.

A few blasts to the head will drop a tiring Pacquiao late as the effects of a less than stellar training camp start to bear fruit. Pacquiao will be firing until the end in a brilliant struggle but physics will be the diminutive Pacquiao’s biggest conqueror. A Machismo fueled Margarito possessed to clear his name will finally ruin what could have been a beautiful match-up between Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather with an avalanche of punches in the championship rounds. Below is an in-depth look at the fighters skills and measurable's head-to-head.
