Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito Fight Odds Early Look

Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito Fight Odds Early Look: There is a few months left before Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito face each other on November 13 in what appears to be one of the best boxing matches in 2010.The Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito Boxing Odds have Pacquiao at -525 at BODOG.COM.

Manny Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 KOs) will fight Margarito (38-6, 27 KOs, 1 NC) because Floyd Mayweather Jr. (41-0, 25 KOs) wasn't interested (perhaps he is afraid, who knows?) in having the fight of the century against Manny this year.

Pacquiao is basically the best pound by pound fighter in the planet and most people believe Mayweather might be the only one who can have a real shot at him, that´s why Margarito does not seem as a challenge for him.

Shane Mosley, who is older and slower than Pacquiao, beat Margarito last year by responding hard shots with hard shots but without forgetting about the technically proficient boxing style that he owns. Margarito will have real troubles against Manny´s speed as Pacman is one if not the fastest-handed, hard-punching southpaw in the world.

Pacquiao will outplay Margarito by building a small lead early with a possibly of clean punches through the Mexican guard as the rounds passes by. Boxing betting fans should consider this fight won´t be near the 12 rounds, instead the match should be under six as a TKO is the definitely bet here.

Keep in mind since Margarito beat Miguel Angel Cotto in 2008 and was suspended by using an illegal hand wrap controversy against Mosley in 2009, he hasn´t been the same fighter. This fight will appear competitive for the first rounds but then Margarito will slow and Pacman won't. Consider seven of the last 12 Pacquiao´s fights ended in a sort of knock out.
