Thanks to Alaxan FR
Although It’s kind of late but, I would like to thank Alaxan FR for the Free Ticket we’ve won from their fan page. My wife and I had a great time and enjoyed watching the fight in a big screen without the annoying commercial break.
Krispy Kreme for Breakfast
We left Dasmariñas City, at around 6:30pm and arrived at the SM Mall of Asia past 8 in the morning. We knew the fight will not exactly starts as indicated in the ticket, we took the time to have breakfast at Krispy Kreme near the theater. We ordered the new “Pull Aparts” pastries from Krispy Kreme, my wife order for a mocha tall size coffee and a “Pull Aparts – Saugsage and Cheese” while I order for a coffee and Bacon & Cheese Pull.
Prefight Tour at the Mall of Asia
We order for a take-out and decided toeat it inside the cinema. Before we went inside the cinema we were able to take photos of models from the fight sponsors. Some of the prominent sponsors endorse by Manny Pacquiao were Rexona, Master, and Motolite outside the cinema’s lobby. We went inside at around 5 minutes before 9AM, yet they still showing some prefight interview from Manny’s and Margarito’s camp. I remember hearing Anthonio Margarito’s calling Pacman’s a “B!TCH” (forgive the word) during an interview in front of his kid, in which the crowd got disappointed and angry , "BOO!" Margarito. The exhibition fight started with one of our contender Juan Martin "Bai" Elorde lost his first international fight in three of the undercard bouts featured in the Manny Pacquiao-Antonio Margarito 12-round title showdown at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. But the other two undercard fighter, Dennis Laurente and Richie Mepranum defeated their respective American opponents in this event.
The Prefight Matches
In the event, it was also featured Brandon Rios vs. Omri Lowther fight which won by Rios by TKO at round 5. Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Ricardo Cordoba fight was won by Guillermo Rigondeaux by split decision. Afterwards, the Mike Jones vs. Jesus Soto Karass heated the right at round 2 after Jones lands at least 50 power shots while Karass does his best to keep just busy enough to keep the fight from stopping. Jones tires with 30 seconds left and Karass swings the momentum back in his favor to keep the round from being 10-8. Karass is cut over his right eye. The fight ended with Mike Jones by majority decision.
The Main Event Pacquaio vs. Margarito
The Pacquiao vs. Margarito fight started at around 12 noon, and the crowd goes frenzy inside the cinema everytime Manny Pacquiao showup in the screen prior the main event introduction it was like he was all their inside the cinema. At the start of each event 2 models or sexy round girls also heated the event from the fight sponsors. It was clearly a fight favored Manny, from the first 6 rounds. Although, at round 6, Margarito chases and Manny is picking him off. Margarito is now lumbering in and Manny is too accurate for Margarito to avoid. Pacquiao is giving Margarito no rest period. When Margarito pauses to regroup, Manny plants three shots to the head. Great finish to the round when Margarito rips off two clean body punches. Pacquiao retreats to the corner and Margarito starts off a thrilling exchange. Pacquiao looked to be in trouble for a second but he made it out. The crowd was a bit silence during this rounds, but Pacquiao recovers and end the fight with 119-109 score winning the fight on a unanimous decision.
We ate lunch at around 2pm already, and arrived back home 4pm still feeling the chill from the Pacquiao Vs. Margarito fight. Before I end this post can you share your experience on how did you watch the fight? Thanks.
