Margarito Agreed to Fight Pacquiao at 150

Pacquiao vs MargaritoWhen Pacquiao vs Margarito rub each other gloves on November 13 this will be an epic match. But the before the fight happen both fighters should agree some terms that’s why negotiations is still on-going. And I read on some news sites that Antonio Margarito has agreed to meet Manny Pacquiao at the catch weight of 150 lbs, or 4 lbs below the 154 limit. Margarito did not hesitate to agree on the 150 lbs catch weight according to the reports. Margarito faces difficulty making 147 but there is an understanding about the three extra pounds between the parties. Pacquiao is also willing to fight Margarito from 147 up to 150 pounds around that weight despite the Mexican champ’s height advantage. Pacquiao said that he has no problem about climbing weight to face the Mexican. What I think also is Margarito agreed the catch weight of 150 because this is the fight he really wants to happen with, and he really wants to fight Pacquiao. And also, it is also good money for him; this will be his biggest payout in his career. Another advantage is having two fighters under one promoter Top Rank. There are many ingredients in the fight mix that create a mega fight, and the Pacquiao vs Margarito fight features a number of elements that should make this one a classic. There is enough of a difference in styles to make this something special. Who knows how this fight would have played out 4 years ago, but right now both fighters still possess superior speed and boxing technique, Pacquiao has speed, footwork, punching power, and aggressive boxer puncher who will come forward, and Margarito is big, strong, good punching power, tough and determined. They must be on a collision course to fight as the hype, pressure and expectation for the two to meet up is building up, that the money involved would be good also to ignore. Boxing fans are now excited to watch Pacquiao vs Margarito this November. Stay tuned!
