As I have noticed and you’ll probably do too if you’ve watched Pacman’s succeeding wins, Manny has developed the habit of finishing the bout even before we find ourselves getting the popcorn expecting for the long show. The General Santos native changed the way boxing clashes were supposed to be watched with his enemy knocked out not beyond the second round! His hard habit though is not clearly reflected in this fight against Chokchai Chockvivat.
Pacquaio’s opponent was trashed down one minute shy before the end of the fifth round. At least, he prolonged the clash for awhile! This fight was Philippine boxing superstar Manny Pacquaio’s first fight outside the Philippines. This fight was held at Korakuen Hall,in Tokyo, Japan. Pacquiao’s record coming into this fight was 23-1 with 13 knockouts. He was then the reigning OPBF flyweight champion for having defeated Chockvivat of Thailand for the title.Posted May 11th, 2008 by boxingvid | 1 views 1,056 Comments »
