Alex Ariza: Pacquiao will hurt Margarito

On the upcoming November 13 fight for the vacant WBC super welterweight title to be held in Dallas Cowboys stadium, it has been said that Antonio Margarito is having a big advantage against Manny Pacquiao.  Margarito is bigger and that is his main asset on the upcoming fight.  Margarito is also seeking redemption from his sloppy boxing career today because of his controversial fight against Sugar Shane Mosley.  Were he was caught using an illegal plaster.

Expert Alex Ariza, Manny Pacquiao's condition trainer said that Pacquiao will gain advantage for being small on their upcoming fight.  Ariza said that with Manny being small, it would be an advantage because for a big man to fight small guy, you have to make yourself small.  "It's no secret that Margarito doesn't move his feet, he doesn't move well, he doesn't move side-to-side and a smaller guy can create more problems than fighting a guy your own size who is there in front of you all the time" Ariza added.

When Margarito will be throwing a lot of punches, he also takes a lot of punches.  Pacquiao is quick and moves in every angle in the ring.  His quickness is the main advantage of Manny Pacquiao.  Ariza also said that "If Shane Mosley can hurt Margarito, I definitely think Manny can hurt Margarito," "He hurts you not only because he is strong, he hurts you because of the angles he throws punches from.  You don't see them coming and the speed and velocity accentuates the power and make the punches twice as hard." Ariza added, referring to Manny Pacquiao.
