* Firepower: Pacquiao vs Cotto

Pacquiao victorious against Cotto

/ 11/14/2009 MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada /

Another Pacquiao fight and it only means 0% crime rate here in the Philippines, no traffic and everyone is on standby in the tube, net and on the radio for what they say is the biggest fight for the Filipino Pride Manny Pacquiao against Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto for the WBO Welterweight Title. I decided to go home right away after my work and a friend has invited me to watch because they have payperview at home. The main bout started a little bit late this time around 12 noon.

Pacquiao showed that he is still the pound for pound king in boxing when he won and became a 7 time world champion in 7 different weight divisions in boxing after defeating Miguel Cotto with a TKO in the 12th round. The Puerto Rican was knocked down twice during the bout before the referee stopped the fight in the last round. Cotto's face was full of blood just like what happened with his first loss againts Margarito. Eventhough Pacquiao is smaller and many says that Cotto is stronger, Pacquiao showed why he is the best and showed his speed and accuracy in the fight. Cotto had a hard time hitting him and catching up with Pacquiao.

With Pacquiao's victory all of the Filipinos are happy and proud with him and now he is a legend in the sport. Now everyone is looking for the superbout or the real dream match between Pacquiao and Mayweather. To know who is really the real and undisputed Pound for Pound King in the boxing ring.
