Fight Synopsis:

This is Manny Pacquiao’s 8th professional boxing fight which he fought against Renato Mendones of Sorsogon and held at Puerto Princesa City, Palawan on October 21, 1995. Again, Pacquiao shows why he is the king of the ring as he pounds Mendones, jab after jab, hook after hook, and straight after straight. The referee stops this fight early in the second round after Mendones suffers from a bloodied face and is deemed unable to continue the boxing fight.

Mendones got caught flush with a straight from Pacquiao and for two minutes or so, will have no idea where he is. He tries some lame punches against Pacquiao but the pacman continued to pound the Sorsogon native prompting the ref to stop the fight.

As a trivia, Pacquiao tipped the scale at 109 lbs for this fight, and as of press time, will be be fighting at 135 lbs against David Diaz come June 27, 2008.
