Even before it was officially announced that Pacquaio won the fight

I was already standing tall and proud to be Filipino

Pacquiao literally beat Margarito’s face to a pulp

He could have easily floored the proud Mexican during the 12th round

But Pacquaio didn’t want to inflict any more blows

Even telling the referee to stop the round

In the end the Filipino in Pacquiao prevailed

What has been described as one of the best boxing performances in recent years

Ended in a heart-warming act of kindness for an opponent

Pacquaio did not only win his 8th world title

Pacquiao, a Filipino, earned the respect of the world

Mabuhay ka, Manny Pacquaio!

Mabuhay ang Pilipino.
