ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Manny Pacquiao is more concerned with the set list for his upcoming concert than he is with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The fight every boxing fan wants to see may never happen, but Pacquiao has a firm date to sing at Lake Tahoe before heading home and more formal duties as a congressman in the Philippines.
All was well early Sunday after Pacquiao cemented his claim as boxing’s best by giving Antonio Margarito such a brutal beating that he went to the hospital. About the only problem was that Pacquiao couldn’t sign autographs for his adoring fans because he found it hard to hold a pen.
Small wonder, considering Pacquiao spent 12 rounds bouncing those hands off of Margarito’s head. He hit Margarito from almost every angle and with stunning accuracy, closing both his eyes and bloodying his face while dominating every round of their 150-pound showdown.
