Oscar Larios: A True Warrior!

Image

by Sean Ocampo

Earlier today, Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao (42-3-2 32KOs) battled Oscar "Chololo" Larios (56-5-1 36KOs) for the WBC International Super Featherweight title here in Manila. As everybody expected Pacquiao won by a convincing manner. He wowed the crowd with his blitzing handspeed and earth shaking power shots. But the story of the night was Chololo Larios' heart and determination.

Oscar Larios' performance against the great Pacman is perhaps the best performance of his career despite on a losing effort. Chololo has nothing to be ashamed of. It was a galant effort in the part of the Mexican. He was able to do what his fellow Mexicans Marco Antonio Barrera and Erik Morales cannot do against Pacquiao. He withstood Pacquiao's ounslaught for 12 rounds despite kissing the canvas twice with right hands. I personally believe that he could have given any great 130 pound fighters around a run for their money.

No one can ever question Larios' heart after this fight. He fought a hell of a fight with perhaps the strongest puncher pound for pound in the world. He had some pretty good moments with Pacquiao most especially in the 3rd round where he was able to stagger the Filipino Bomber in to the ropes with straight right hands. He also traded with Pacquiao's best shots. That is with a doubt unbelievable.

At 29, I think he's still young and has more opportunities to come. In my personal opinion, the best weight for Larios right now is 126. I believe that he'll be formidable force in that division. As a testament for saying that he can be a great force in 126 is his performance against Pacquiao.

Larios will not leave Manila as a victim of Pacquiao's wrath but instead a true warrior. He showed the world that he can rise in every occasion. Larios, I believe will come back and be champion again. If we are just talking of tools to become world champion then Oscar Larios has it. He just fought a really great fighter today but I take my hat off to him for giving such an effort.

Going to Pacquiao, I’m looking forward to his 3rd fight against Erik “El Terrible” Morales this November 18. Pacquiao showed great improvement in his skills today with his win against Larios. The aspect of his game that I’m most impressed is his defense. Pacquiao showed superb footwork and counterpunching against Larios. He’s getting better and better every fight.

Larios was a true Mexican warrior. He lasted full 12 rounds with Pacman - considering that Pac only fought three (3) 12 round fights in his entire career. No doubt he was a winner in his own right on that fight.

the best possible match up at 126 is Larios vs Juan Manuel Marquez.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU! Larios showed his heart out there! He definitely prepared for it, no doubt! Pacquiao should take this as a wake-up call, so as not to take lightly opponents in the future.

It was a scare to see Larios hammering "The Pacman" against the ropes in the 3rd round. A result of overconfidence.

Also, I think the short period of training took its toll on Manny. For a while there he was in disarray, not the focused Manny who fought Morales the last time. I hope he stays away from cockfighting and nightlife for the meantime, and start concentrating on his boxing career...THAT CAREER WHICH TOOK HIM WHERE HE IS NOW, lest he wants to be a deteriorating fighter in the VERY near future.

TO LARIOS: Well done!
TO PACQUIAO: Full two months of training the next time please. Congratulations by the way.

I agree Bro, when he said he came in to fight for the win, he meant it by lasting the twelve rounds. He absorbed tremendous shots and he could have just sat down and collect his money. Hats to you Oscar, you're a credit to all tough boxers who proved their worth. I would love to see him go another round with Vasquez.
