Pacquiao: I underestimated Solis

MANILA, Philippines -- Manny Pacquiao on Tuesday admitted he had underestimated the guile of the erstwhile unbeaten Jorge Solis of Mexico.
Pacquiao, who paid a courtesy call on President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo along with wife Jinkee in Malacañang, said he initially found it hard to hit Solis with his potent combinations.
“Magaling umilag at saka matangkad (He’s tall and good at evading punches),” Pacquiao told Malacañang reporters.
“Pag lumayo na ang katawan niya, mahirap nang abutin yung mukha niya dahil matangkad (Whenever he disengaged, it was hard to hit him in the face because he’s tall),” added the World Boxing Council International super featherweight champion.
When he met with the President Tuesday, Pacquiao sported four stitches over his left eye.
He said he started going at Solis’ body -- “ang pinakamahinang parte ng katawan ni Solis (the weakest part of Solis’ body)” -- when blood started to flow from the head-butt-induced gash late in the sixth round.
“When I saw blood ... I got a bit angry,” recalled the Pacman, who finally knocked out Solis with still 1:44 to go in the eighth round of their fight at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
“Medyo nagdilim ang paningin ko kaya sinasagasaan ko na. Inupakan ko na ng inupakan (I was blinded by rage and went for the kill),” he said.
