anybody here notice buboy fernandez tell manny in the corner at the middle rounds( i forgot what round ) " laruin mo lang" (play him").
as if to say manny is just toying with OL and he didnt intend to end the fight early for some reason. just my opinion

ang sagot ni pacquiao sa interview ni dianne ay
ang game plan ng coach nya ay 6 rounds lang pero di sya nagmadali
at di naging agresibo baka malusutan sya ng isa
at yun ang maging dahilan para sya matalo...

'though medyo naging sutil si mp ay sa dahilang na-test nya sa 3rd round
na kaya nya naman ang suntok ni larios...

cmon now, do you expect him to KO everyone? just cause he didnt KO larios, does it mean he held back to you? to answer your question, no, i dont think he held back. i know you dont mean to, but dont take it away from larios by saying manny held back on him. hey, a win is a win. manny always fights 100%. larios is tough also. congrats to both fighters. you made your countrys proud :D

manny was just patient and fought smart. one thing is certain. oscar larios is a true warrior :toast: . there were many times in the fight where pacquiao would go in for the kill, but larios stayed strong and survived. and if he did hold back, then why did manny blow him away in every round? if he did hold back, he would have gave larios a chance in the later rounds. okay, enough with the holding back. larios has the warrior heart, and no one can put it down. 8)

Call it being patient/boxing smart/being cautious its all the same thing

HE WAS HOLDING BACK
even coasting on the way to win, if you will

makes no difference what Larios did

Manny at the end of the fight looking fresh as a daisy!

I agree, I felt like he was holding back he could've ended the fight between round 4 to 7. He just wasn't punching as much and as feriocious as he was with MAB and Morales, when Larios was hurt it looked like Manny was giving him time to recover.

Give credit to Larios though he's a warior, a true champ.

The way I saw it, Manny took his time, paced himself, and waited.

I don't think Manny held back.

A one-dimensional fighter? Ha, never again.

The way I saw it, Manny is a whole new boxer. I don't know about you, but did you see Manny ever going to his trademark "right-right-left?" He hardly ever used it. Roach did a wonderful job with Manny working on honing the right hand as well.

Also, all the undercard fights were great. Philippines swept Mexico 3-0.

This is definitely a wake-up call for Mexico, and now realize that the Philippines is ready to take that throne away from the country who dominated boxing for the past ten years or so.

I wish they showed the entire fight of Cesar Amonsot, but from what I've seen, Amonsot is a great prospect, and has the build and skill that, given time, could take on the likes of Acelino Freitas, and even Diego Corrales.

Gerry Penalosa also had an impressive win against his opponent Rojas. Rojas throw lots of wild flurries and Penalosa was extremely elusive, dodging most of it and hitting Rojas at will. Coming off the emotional high of winning, Penalosa must realize that he's not getting any younger (33), and I think he should retire on this impressive high note.

Jimrex Jaca was also good in his win, but not that great. Jaca reminds me of a young Manny Pacquiao: a powerful puncher who relied on that power but forgot that there was a thing called defense. Definitely a work in progress, he could be just as good as Manny if he surrounds himself with good people, and of course, a great trainer.

Anyways, back to Pacquiao-Larios...

Larios won the hearts of all Filipinos as he was gracious in defeat and did the one thing neither Marco Antonio Barrera or Erik Morales have: admitted that Pacquiao was the more conditioned and better fighter that night. I would love to see these two go at it again, but I just saw the ABS-CBN ticker this morning that Manny rejected the call for one.

Along with Pacquiao-Morales II, this one should be nominee for fight of the year. Then again, Pacquiao-Morales III could be surprising.

I had a dream over a month ago that Pacquiao KO'd Morales in the third round.

Hmm...

I can't wait for November.

it look like Manny is not in the best shape compare when he fought Velasquez and Morales II. I watch the fight 3 times already, after Round 1 Pacman already breathing hard on his corner. During the middle rounds you see him not punching at all because his trying to rest.

i gotta disagree 8) . being patient and boxing smart and being cautious is not holding back. manny tried to finish larios off many times when he had the chance. and it dosent matter if he was fresh at the end, that means mannys defense skills improved. i have noticed his defense is getting better. :D . sorry though, i say manny gave it his all like he always do
