Manny Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 KO’s)

Strengths: Pacquiao has done the unimaginable in his professional career, winning nine different title belts in seven different classes. He is the only boxer to ever accomplish that feat. It is clear that he is capable of boxing at a very high level as high as Welterweight, so as he tries to add another notch in his crown with a Super Welterweight title it is difficult to imagine he will have trouble with another step up in weight class. Pacquiao has some of the best hand speed in the business and it might be as fast of hands as Margarito has ever seen.

Weaknesses: There are really no secrets to Pacquiao’s attack. Rarely has an opponent put together a strong enough gameplan to challenge that, but if Margarito can figure out some dents in Pacquiao’s armor it could potentially leave some areas open for attack.
