    Floyd can't fight if he is locked up in prison for a variety of charges. The man is just afraid of Manny that he is not relevant anymore.

    I had Amir winning by KO earlier before the fight. If the knockdown in the first round was earlier, Maidana does not survive it. That was a liver shot and he was saved by the bell. Looks like Maidana also lacks the courtesy to touch gloves and tried to steal ashot on Amir in the first round. Amir got lucky he was able to hold on. I thought he was in trouble in the 10th round... He can't always imitate Manny's style of fighting by inviting Maidana to come at him on the ropes. He ended up back pedalling the last few rounds.

    In the fight, Pacquiao defeated Margarito via a lopsided unanimous decision. Pacquiao used his superior handspeed and movement to continuously batter Margarito to win his 8th world title in as many divisions. Pacquiao had to implore referee Laurence Cole several times on the penultimate round to stop the fight as Margarito was in an extremely bad shape with a swollen face and a large cut beneath the right eye, but the referee let the fight continue. In the post-fight ring interview, Pacquiao said that he just waited for the 3 minutes to end during the last round and did not pummel Margarito as "Boxing is not for killing".

Margarito's camp is questioning Pacquiao's hand wraps. Freddie Roach is demanding a pre-fight blood test because he suspects Margarito has taken ephedra, an illegal stimulant. Texas commission is refusing. It's getting ugly. • Roach contends that the ephedra will not be detectable after the fight. I consulted a doctor on this who said the half life for ephedra is 3-6 hours, meaning depending how much was taken it could be out of his system by the time the post fight test is done. • It's academic at this point. Michael Buffer is on stage, Nelly performing Country Grammar. We're ready to go. • Tremendous, powerful boxing video being shown on Cowboys Stadium's massive big screen. Some savage, historical knockouts are being shown. Really hyping the fight. • Margarito is entering the ring. Despite his history, he's got a huge crowd here. Not as many fans as Pacquiao, but plenty. • One more note on Margarito. If -- big IF here -- it's proven he did something illegal before this fight, it's likely no commission in the U.S. will ever license him again. • Pacquiao's turn. Another electrifying video montage backed by AC/DC's Thunderstruck and -- YES! -- the Karate Kid song, You're the best Around! • Both fighters in the ring. Both look relaxed, comfortable right now. Whatever that's worth. •Margarito all smiles as Buffer introduces him. Pacquiao smirking, hopping up and down during his introduction. Roach looks pretty angry right now. Wonder how much the pre-fight nonsense will affect both fighters. Pre-fight notes • Welcome to Cowboys Stadium, where a packed house (40,000 tickets were sold as of Friday and promoters are eyeing a 60,000 gate) is here for the super welterweight showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito. • Earlier tonight Pacquiao weighed in on the HBO scales at 148 pounds while Margarito rehydrated to 165 pounds. That's a huge weight difference and makes Margarito easily the biggest fighter Pacquiao has ever faced. Put in another context, it's basically a super middleweight taking on a welterweight. • Is the weight difference going to be an issue? I can tell you that there are many people in Pacquiao's camp who are unhappy with his decision to not pack on the pounds for this fight. Pacquiao thinks he loses too much speed, and it's hard to argue with him given his staggering success. But Pacquiao better be careful because illegal hand wraps or not, Margarito is a big, heavy-handed puncher who has the pop to put him down. • Another reason to expect a knockout: both fighters will wear eight-ounce gloves. I was told 10 ounces were an option but the choice was eight. • Stakes are high for both these guys. If Pacquiao wins, he keeps alive the possibility of a fight with Floyd Mayweather and the gazillion-dollar payday that comes with it. Margarito probably needs this fight even more. He was suspended for a year after trying to load his gloves in the Shane Mosley fight, and his one fight since then (a decision win over Roberto Garcia) didn't move the needle. A bad loss could end his career as a network fighter. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...html?eref=sihp 11:28 Kieran Mulvaney: I'm back. National anthems time.

This is Rocky III, when Stallone didn't train hard and got his @$$ handed to him by Clubber Lang. PacMan = Rocky and he's going down. Maybe he gets him in the rematch when DelaHoya plays the role of Apollo Creed and trains PacMan for the remathc. Saturday November 13, 2010 11:34 MrMustSeeTV 11:35 Kieran Mulvaney: My prediction, for what it's worth, remains what it has been for a little while.

Saturday November 13, 2010 11:41 Kieran Mulvaney 11:42 Kieran Mulvaney: Apparently, Pac's rep in the Margarito dressing room claims he saw Margs given ephedra. Ephedra is not illegal, but when combined with caffein and aspirin is effectively speed, and it burns off quickly so is not notuceable in postfight drug tests. hence, Roach's call for a prefight test.

Saturday November 13, 2010 11:55 Kieran Mulvaney 11:56 Kieran Mulvaney: Margs has a tight guard up, which will make it hard for Pac. Saturday November 13, 2010 11:56 Kieran Mulvaney 11:56 Kieran Mulvaney: Pac looks for way in to the body.

Saturday November 13, 2010 11:58 Kieran Mulvaney 11:59 Kieran Mulvaney: Pacquaio waited until Margarito moved to throw a right hand and then would counter with two or three punches over the top of it. So far, when Margarito starts to open up, Pacquiao lands at will. But it's early.

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:01 Kieran Mulvaney 12:02 Kieran Mulvaney: Margs' jab effective in this round. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:02 Kieran Mulvaney 12:02 Kieran Mulvaney: Good counter flurry from Pac at the end. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:02 Kieran Mulvaney 12:02 Kieran Mulvaney: I might sneak that round to Margarito; Tom Hauser to my left disagrees and scores it for Pacquiao. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:02 Kieran Mulvaney 12:03 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito is doing what needs to: Tight guard and straight right behind a stiff left. But whenever he leaves himself open, Pac pounces.

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:05 Kieran Mulvaney 12:06 Kieran Mulvaney: Quick flurry from Pacquiao at the end of round 3 from Pacquiao. Pacquiao's round. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:06 Kieran Mulvaney 12:07 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito is fighting with a tighter defense than I anticipated, which is negating some of Pacquiao's arsenal, but limits his own offensive effectiveess. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:07 Kieran Mulvaney 12:07 Kieran Mulvaney: Round 4 Sunday November 14, 2010 12:07 Kieran Mulvaney 12:08 Kieran Mulvaney: Pac sneaked in with a nice combination, but now Margs bulls forward and pushes Pac to the ropes. Pac launches bombs to back him away. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:08 Kieran Mulvaney 12:08 Kieran Mulvaney: Beautiful combination from Pacquiao as Margarito reaches forward. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:08 Kieran Mulvaney 12:09 Kieran Mulvaney: Again Margarito stalks.

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:09 Kieran Mulvaney 12:09 Kieran Mulvaney: Pacquaio is killing him to the body, bending him over and leaving him open for head shots. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:09 Kieran Mulvaney 12:09 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito weathers the storm. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:09 Kieran Mulvaney 12:10 Kieran Mulvaney: And lands a nice uppercut. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:10 Kieran Mulvaney 12:10 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito has a nasty welt under his right eye. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:10 Kieran Mulvaney 12:10 Kieran Mulvaney: End of the round and it was a big one for Pacquiao. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:10 Kieran Mulvaney 12:11 Kieran Mulvaney: Round 5 Sunday November 14, 2010 12:11 Kieran Mulvaney 12:11 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito back to jabbing Sunday November 14, 2010 12:11 Kieran Mulvaney 12:12 Kieran Mulvaney: Right left from Pacquiao sends the sweat flying.

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:12 Kieran Mulvaney 12:13 Kieran Mulvaney: Right from Manny snaps back Margs' head. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:13 Kieran Mulvaney 12:13 Kieran Mulvaney: Nice left inside from Manny. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:13 Kieran Mulvaney 12:13 Kieran Mulvaney: Still Margs comes forward.

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:13 Kieran Mulvaney 12:14 Kieran Mulvaney: Pac breaking through Margs' guard with ease now. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:14 Kieran Mulvaney 12:14 Kieran Mulvaney: A series of right-lefts from Pacquiao to punctuate the round. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:14 Kieran Mulvaney 12:14 Kieran Mulvaney: Pacquiao's round, 10-9. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:14 Kieran Mulvaney 12:14 Kieran Mulvaney: Wow, the attendance is a lot lower than I thought. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:14 Kieran Mulvaney 12:15 Kieran Mulvaney: 41, 734. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:15 Kieran Mulvaney 12:15 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito right now looks a little lost in there. Pacquiao is just too fast.

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:15 Kieran Mulvaney 12:16 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito lunges with a left hand, Pacquiao fires a three-punch combination and is gone before Margarito can respond. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:16 Kieran Mulvaney 12:16 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito churning forward, Pacquiao landing fast counters, but Margarito now starting to stand up to the punches.

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:40 Kieran Mulvaney 12:40 Kieran Mulvaney: Walking into the Filipino buzzsaw. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:40 Kieran Mulvaney 12:41 Kieran Mulvaney: Manny Pacquiao has just totally outclassed Antonio Margarito tonight.

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:42 Kieran Mulvaney 12:43 Kieran Mulvaney: A masterful performance from Manny Pacquiao. Utterly dominant. But there were several rounds in there when it looked as if Margarito was going to impose himself, was going to take it over with his size. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:43 Kieran Mulvaney 12:43 Kieran Mulvaney: pacquiao looked gassed, needed to dig as deep as he has had to dig before. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:43 Kieran Mulvaney 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney: And he weathered the storm, came back and dominated the second half of the fight. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney: My score is 118-110, and I doubt anyone else has it that close. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney: There could be some 10-8 rounds in there. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney: The official scores: Sunday November 14, 2010 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney 12:44 Kieran Mulvaney: 120-108, 118-110, 119-109 all for the winner by unanimous decision ...

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:45 Kieran Mulvaney 12:47 Kieran Mulvaney: That was all the more impressive fr the fact that Pacquiao had to suck it up there in the middle rounds. But even as he began to impose himself, Margarito just didn't throw enough punches, probably because of fear of the fast counters. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:47 Kieran Mulvaney 12:47 Kieran Mulvaney: Pacman: "it's hard. i really do my best to win the fight. He's strong. I can't believe it."

Sunday November 14, 2010 12:47 Kieran Mulvaney 12:47 Kieran Mulvaney: Pacman: "I got hurt to the body and the face when he had me against the ropes." Sunday November 14, 2010 12:47 Kieran Mulvaney 12:48 Kieran Mulvaney: In the 11th round, Pacquiao was looking to the ref to stop the fight because of Margarito's face and his eyes. Sunday November 14, 2010 12:48 Kieran Mulvaney 12:49 Kieran Mulvaney: Pac: "In the 12th round, i was not looking for the knockout. I take it easy." Sunday November 14, 2010 12:49 Kieran Mulvaney 12:50 Kieran Mulvaney: Pac: "Yes, I will continue to fight." Asked about Floyd, he said only, "I am just a fighter. That is my promoter's job." Sunday November 14, 2010 12:50 Kieran Mulvaney 12:51 Kieran Mulvaney: Margarito: "We knew Manny was very fast. we were going good until I got cut." Sunday November 14, 2010 12:51 Kieran Mulvaney 12:51 Kieran Mulvaney: Did he consider stopping the fight? "No, I'm a Mexican who fights to the end." Sunday November 14, 2010 12:51 Kieran Mulvaney 12:51 Kieran Mulvaney: Robert Garcia: "Tony's a warrior and he never would have allowed me to stop the fight." Sunday November 14, 2010 12:51 Kieran Mulvaney 12:53 Kieran Mulvaney: With that folks, I thank you so much for your time this evening.

It is initially held at some moment in time by a boxer universally acclaimed as the best in the class. Another boxer can only win the lineal championship by defeating the reigning lineal champion in the ring. The lineal champion is described as "the man who beat the man". A boxer loses his lineal championship if he is defeated,moves up in weight class or retires. Not when he abandons the title or is stripped of it by the sanctioning bodies. *Note: When Marco Antonio Barrera won the WBC Featherweight title and Ring Magazine featherweight title, he refused to recognize the WBC belt. He was still the WBC champion when he fought Manny. On 22 June 2002, Barrera defeated Morales in a rematch, for the WBC Featherweight title, winning by unanimous decision. Barrera chose to defend the Ring Magazine Featherweight title instead of accepting the WBC title.
