Holyfield: Pacquiao is to fast for Margarito

Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield has been saying some good things about Manny Pacquiao.  On his recent interview with Brad Cooney from  He has all praises for the Filipino pound-for-pound king both in and out the ring.

“His humility is a great thing, and he fights. He does not complain, and he throws a lot of punches. He comes to fight and you know what you're going to get when you fight Manny Pacquiao," Holyfield said.  He has been very impressed with Manny Pacquiao as a boxer and even as a man of the people.  “Manny takes on all comers and in his mind it is simple.  You wanto fight? Let's fight! Outside of the ring, he is humble,”  Holy field said.

When Holyfield was asked about Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito's fight on November 13, he predicted a Pacquiao win.  “People need to understand that Pacquiao throws a lot of punches, he's a busy fighter, and by him being busy and with that good leverage, he hits hard, and by the time his opponent knows it, he is way behind on the scorecards. You can't not want to get hit and throw a lot of punches, and this is the problem for Manny's opponents. Manny will be throwing punches all day and he will want to win this fight.”

Holyfield also talked about Floyd Mayweather Jr's talent and he is not pleased with the way Mayweather has been making his decisions.  “When I look at Floyd, he's a very skillful fighter. As far as skill goes I don't think anyone matches up with him. The sad thing is once you become champion you dictate how much a person weighs? Rules are rules, you can't dictate who takes a steroid test. You don't become the person to dictate that. If the organizations are not made up that way, you don't make the rules.”
