It's going to be a war, says Pacquiao foe Margarito

The immovable object against the unstoppable force. Antonio Margarito versus Manny Pacquiao.
That in a nutshell was how the Mexican fighter from Tijuana describes his November 13 title bout with Pacquiao for the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) light-middleweight championship.
"I love to fight and Manny has proven that he is a warrior," said the 32-year-old Margarito at his training camp in Oxnard, California. “This fight is going to be a war."
In the same manner that Pacquiao has relocated his training camp from Manila to Baguio, so has Margarito.
The two-time world champion has already left camp in the City of South El Monte, California in favor of Oxnard where trainer Robert Garcia said emphasis would now shift to sparring and conditioning, although running on the mountains and tracks will continue to be a staple of Margarito’s training.
Garcia, a former International Boxing Federation (IBF) junior lightweight champion, said a lot had been accomplished in the two weeks of pre-training camp operation they conducted in South El Monte.
"We got a lot done in the first two weeks and Tony looks great," said the soft-spoken Garcia, who also trains former Filipino world champion Nonito Donaire Jr.
"I love his focus and intensity, and our first phase of training camp was an eye-opener for him and me. The first two weeks have been really terrific and productive."
Given another shot at a world title following an illegal hand wrap controversy, Margarito vowed not to waste this opportunity.
And that means beating the world's top pound-for-pound fighter at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas seven weeks from now.
"I know how important this fight is to my career and to all of Mexico. That is why I will prepare like never before and will defeat Manny Pacquiao, proving to everyone that I am one of the best fighters in the world," said the fighter dubbed "The Tijuana Tornado."
