This is one of the many short fights of Manny. At least it went overboard the first round! However, his opponent,Todd Makelin was not spared from the explosive beatings his rival had made his former ring enemies suffer. The 20 year old Manny Pacquaio mauled the Australian terribly. Pacquiao cornered him like a rat unable to escape from the cat’s clutches.
Makelin did his best to protect his body where Pacquiao’s thunderbolt fast fists struck mostly. The clash was held at Kidapawan City, North Cotabato, Philippines. This February 20, 1999 fight lasted well until the 3rd round, before Makelin’s corner throw in the towels.Posted May 11th, 2008 by boxingvid | 549 views 747 Comments »
