Post fight Pacquiao Vs Morales Mailbag: Part Four

Revisit the Action. Round by Round: Pacquiao Vs Morales
There are so many ways that they did to manny which
affected his fight! ...ist! the thicker gloves! 2nd!...the blood
took to fight a days before their fight!....why????
I don't know if it was "they" as some conspirators group or anything, but this is the "chaos" that I spoke of that goes hand in hand with a boxing match that seems so easy to predict as many thought would be the case.
What a great fight. Though I'm a filipino fan, I salute Erik
gallant fight. He's a good and clean fighter not unlike Barrera where
punched EM during the press conference. EM for me is as gentleman as
other fighters should emulate. If there's a rematch, will PAC be given
or more talent fee since his presence is a blockbuster? Also, I've
Murad cheated PAC coz the supposed pay per view percentage due for PAC
Murad's pocket. Also his contract of $1.75M but the actual is $2.5M.
those people cheat good fighters while they still could get enough from
percentage. So Manny made a decision of shifting to Finkel as new
Would it be a wise decision on PAC? If he fights MAB or Marquez, will
($1.75M), more or less?
It is really the lesser of two evils as far as I am concerned when it comes to the bottom feeding leaches that are promoters for the most part. In case of MAB being a bad guy, there was a lot of personal stuff between the two of those guys that we will never fully understand and it was many years now as he has grown and I am sure regrets those actions he took way back when. This is a game of fighting and tempers flare, it is unfair for us to call foul when the fists' fly outside of the ring as well.
The fight between these two gentlemen was a classic!!! A
rematch is in
order to give boxing fans the fights they love to see. These two made
division more like the heavyweights with respect to fight attendance
per view subscriptions. No one created an electrifying energy as both
fighters created when they stepped in the ring and boxed.
both of you, you are the Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony of boxing.
see your much awaited rematch.
Well I agree with you for the first 3 rounds and the last 3 but the in between left Manny looking pretty dazed and confused, very lopsided IMO.
Props to Morales. My man Pacquiao got beat again by a better
sure if PACMAN can ever develop into a technician of a JM or Morales
but he can take this learning experience for his next fight. Hope we
another opportunity to take on one of Mexico's warriors after his cut
healed. If that doesn't happen, I think many would agree they would
love to see
JM vs. Barrera or Morales. What the hell. Make it a double header
combination of these 4 warriors. PEACE
Why not? I think Pac has a chance to beat any of them in a rematch just the same as he has caught some bad luck himself, they may have misfortune fall their way the next time.
i was wondering what if Joe Cortez had called it right in the
round that the cut was caused by the headbutt would there a point be
from Morales and wouldn't Pacquiao have won the round? And if so
fight have been at least a draw or a win?
No, it would have been TKO win for Morales because of the miscalled diagnosis on the cut and how it was acquired.
bro,, manny did not give 100% vs em. manny fought different
to me is good coz he throws more combos than his previous fights, i
a one-dimensional manny, did u?
he only give 50% for this fight but hurts em many times, with this
of 50%, do u think he can kd mab or jmm?
I agree, he looked about 50%...after the 1st round dazing he took when he about landed outside the ropes on his ass. I don't think that Pac expected that at all and was thrown back by the fury and boiling anger that Erik came at him with. Not to mention that he was blistered by those combo's and I think it hurt him more than was led on.

Dear Mr.Barrio (Kimo),
I agree that some of my filipino compatriots don't know boxing that
they are all new converts to the sport. But i have been a boxing fan
30 years.Hell,i even took it up because of my addiction to it! It has
well,because i have yet to loose a street fight. Don't get me wrong
not a thug! Now to the Pacquiao-Morales fight,simply put Morales played
smart. He always ended each round fighting to impress the judges,which
eventually did.He controlled the fight with his jab and right
exploiting manny's weaknesses which are that he can't fight backing
can't fight at close quarters! But this does not changed the fact that
a real warrior and a very explosive and dangerous fighter.Just beacause
won,many people including you mr. Barrio, think his victory over
Barrera was a
fluke-what baloney! Manny that night was simply superb! I never saw
execute such a vicious attack to the head and body so thoroughly! Manny
too much for Barrera! Also to our Mexican brothers,your compatriot Erik
offer my congratulations,but please tell Erik not to gloat!
I agree whole heartedly sir!
The fight of PACMAN and Morales is truly a classic. Both man
best and kept their promised that it will be an action pack match.I
Morales and PACMAN.
I liked the fight, though I would only list the last round in that of "classic" reels.
but not as great as mixed martial arst so please all you
calling it fighting cus boxing is only one aspect of fighting..unlike
fighting where you have brazilian
jiujitsu,boxing,kixkboxing,muaythai,wrestling,and judo so stop calling
fighjt its just boxing match!
honestly, what do you think about the cut? is it coz of the
punch or by
a head butt??
Everything went bad for Manny. EM took him to school. Joe
Cortez made a
bad call ruling the cut on Manny was caused by a legal punch instead of
headbutt. And the ring doctor made Manny looking wanting to quit by
questions in spanish when he went up the ring to check on Manny's cut.
wonder Manny looked baffled. He must have thought it was an interview
Manny looked like a man who had never been hurt that bad before and didn't know whether to quit or not. I think he was trying to gather whether or not the ref had called it by a punch or not. I believe that had Cortez called it accidental, the fight would have been stopped right then.
I think Manny wasn't able to carry his usuall power at 130 or
is just too big and has really that granite chin? If I'm Manny I'll go
126 where his power is tested and I'll fight only at 130 if Barrera is
opponent or maybe WBO 130lb champ Mike Achondo whose only 5'6(about the
height of Manny) and has reach of 66(Manny has 67).
I disagree, I think that Manny has the same power, he just got hurt early and was on a temporary recomposer lapse and looked as if he was lacking power. He was just starting to get back to his normal self when BAM the head butt too send him back to noodle leg feeling.
