How Margarito will beat Pacquiao?

Manny Pacquiao out-boxed De la Hoya
In the boxing era today, Manny Pacquiao is considered to be the boxer to beat.  With his on going winning streak and having beaten world class fighters, Manny Pacquiao is considered to be one dangerous fighter.  

On Manny Pacquiao's November 13 fight, he is said to be the favorite.  Boxing insiders are in favor that the Filipino Boxing Champion will win over the Tijuana Tornado, Antonio Margarito.  The main reason for it is Manny's agility, his quickness to move in the ring and lightning speed of his hands.  But how can you beat Manny Pacquiao? How can Margarito win over Manny Pacquiao?

I have read from a source, The Filipino boxing journal different ways on how Antonio Margarito can defeat the seven division world champion, Manny Pacquiao.  Here are what different experts had to say with their upcoming fight.;

Lorne Scoggins, boxing writer for 8 Count News and
I’d tell him to box. Use the reach advantage and every time Pacquiao attacks, get the heck away from him. Don’t get caught in exchanges with him. Land your shots from the outside and slide away when he tries to retaliate.

John “Iceman” Scully, former light heavyweight contender
I would probably tell him to overwork his jab. Keep constant pressure on but without neglecting the jab as he often does. But I don’t think he will follow my plan.

Stacy “Goodnight” Goodson, professional boxer and trainer
I think you beat pressure with pressure. He has to throw nonstop punches. Manny is not a big stylist. He is however in the best shape possible. So Margarito should be in better shape than ever. I would tell him, “if you get hit once, hit him (Pacquiao) twice.”

Anges Adjaho, lightweight contender and former African intercontinental lightweight champion
I’d tell Margarito to use his height and reach advantage and keep Pacquiao from coming in.

Matt Stolow, boxing writer for and boxing promoter
Margarito’s five – inch height advantage is enormous at 151 lbs. His reach is also much longerI’d tell him to To use his natural advantages – his jab, height and probably strength and weight.

Shannon States, boxing trainer
It would be very wise for Margarito to keep Pac on the end of the jab. Margarito needs to press and cut the ring off, but it is important that he do so behind the jab. If Margo engages too much, he’ll get beat to the punch.

It is pretty clear what the a lot of boxing experts think. Margarito needs to fight tall and extensively use his jab if he is to beat Pacquiao. But will Margarito play the outside game rather than engage? Highly unlikely. One thing is for sure though, nobody will be backing down come fight night.

For Antonio Margarito to win, he must make use of his height advantage.  His long arms will be a big factor in fighting Manny Pacquioa.  He must be packed up with air to keep up with Manny's agility and most of all, avoid Manny when he begins to attack, continuous jabbing will help Margarito seal the fight.
