Margarito enough to take out Pacquiao - ESPN Analyst

John "Iceman" Scully former boxer turn boxing trainer and boxing analyst for ESPN believes that Manny "The Pacman" Pacquiao will get beaten by the "Tijuana Tornado", Antonio Margarito.  “Don’t get me wrong, I think Pacman’s speed of legs and hands will cause Margarito some big problems, but I think Margarito is still very formidable.”  said Scully.  

John Scully believes that if Margarito will press Pacquiao  and come forward while extensively utilizing his jab, Manny Pacquiao will be in for a long night,  “Margarito, if he presses the fight and uses his jab in a big way, could really test the conditioning and the skills of Manny.”  

Sources in Margarito's camp has been telling that they are just doing that.  The Mexican slugger will throw everything at Pacquiao, but they will be using a lot of the jabs.  Expect for a physical fight, it'll be fun and exciting.  “I honestly think Margarito is one of the liveliest underdogs of recent times, because of the hand wrapping scandal and the loss to Mosley people automatically seem to feel this is a blow out win for Pacman."  Scully said.  Margarito is relentless and tough, and his attitude would be a problem to Pacquiao.  Scully also expressed that  Margarito is the hungrier boxer, he is looking for redemption and there is no doubt that he will try to put the shadows of the hand wrapping scandal behind him by beating Manny Pacquiao.

“It may turn out to be the toughest and most grueling match of Manny’s career and while I think he has enough speed and shiftiness to overcome Margarito, I think he will do so only after being pushed to the full limit of his reserves,” Scully said.
