Manny Pacquiao Wins By TKO

I am not much of a sporty person but I am happy to know that Manny Pacquiao won by TKO over Puerto Rican's Miguel Cotto, Saturday night at MGM Garden Arena, Las Vegas. The Filipino fighter, tagged as Mexicutioner, is now the new Welterweight Champion.

As what yahoo sport writer, Kevin Cole, described about the fight: "Pacquiao knocked Cotto down once in the third round and again in the fourth, pummeled him repeatedly and easily lifted the World Boxing Organization welterweight belt from the Puerto Rican with a 12th-round stoppage. The time was 55 seconds into the final round, as referee Kenny Bayless leaped between the fighters to save Cotto a more savage beating and ignominious end".

After the fight, the crowd were asking that Manny's next opponent will be Floyd Mayweather. I wish him luck but as of now, let me just say my congratulations to Manny Pacquiao.
