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.
