In the fight Manny seems a lot more quicker than when he knocked out Morales. His hand speed was amazing. Also he looks more like an experienced and smarter boxer. But Manny seems to be not 100% in shape. The stamina just wasn't there. If the stamina was there, Larios would have gotten TKOed, Guys your thought on the fight?

*Btw Larios faught a good fight too, he has an Ok chin, but Manny has the better chin. Also Larios is a good sport, unlike Morales.

Without Freddie Roach he would have lost this fight b/c he was going to train for 4 weeks only.

Pacman's conditioning is close to 100% but Larios is just too conditioned to just fold. As FR said, he is a "conditioning freak" and it showed in the fight. A little less of Lario's conditioning, he could have not survived the onslaught of Pacquiao storm.

By ESPN Press:

"There was talk that commercial endorsements Pacquiao landed after beating Erik Morales in January -- along with a late-night lifestyle and the shortest training period of his career -- might erode his skills and leave him short on stamina in a long fight."

Yup. I've read that his condition is only 80%.
But dont be disappointed for not having a TKO victory, Larios is just too determined and a tough guy. :drinking:

i noticed also that hes condition was not the same w/ his encounter w/ EM. i think if he trained and be conditioned like that, he will surely KO Larios with the punches that Larios absorbed from him. aniwei, it was still a superior performance by PACMAN! MABUHAY KA PACMAN!!! MABUHAY ANG SAMBAYANANG PILIPINO!!!!

i dont think pac did not want to finish larios. larios took this fight very seriously and was in great condition. its no brainer that a ko should be in order - fighting infront of ur fans, and, to hype up the decider match with el terrible.

lesser fighters sure must have gone down from pacs wicked punches rds1-6. larios was just very prepared and was able to land hard counters that had pac pausing for the kill. pac is evidently showing he is now a thinking fighter. for some few moments there, i thought i was watching penalosa.

noticed also how pac was breathing heavily in the later rounds? well, that stanza just showed the immense skill of our beloved packer, carrying through despite the tank exponentially getting drained.
