Below is the description of the fight.
Despite his smaller size (5'51⁄2" vs Margarito's 5'11") and lower weight (148 lbs vs. Margarito's 165 lbs Pacquiao hammered Margarito with his superior speed and technique. Margarito sustained three cuts, prompting Pacquiao to ask the referee, Laurence Cole, to stop the fight. Ringside commentators agreed as well that the fight should have been stopped.
The fight went the distance with Pacquiao winning via unanimous decision over Margarito. Pacquiao almost knocked out Margarito in the 4th round with a left hook to the body and in the 6th round Margarito connected a solid left hook to the body that sent Pacquiao into the ropes and almost down.
Due to his injuries, Margarito's post-fight interview was skipped and he was sent directly to the hospital after the fight. Margarito had to undergo surgery as it was discovered that his right orbital bone had been fractured.
In the post-fight interview, Pacquiao was asked if he held back during the last round, and Pacquiao said he just let the 3 minutes run out and that "Boxing is not for killing" (quote). Pacquiao also stated "I did not want to damage him permanently." It would turn out, unfortunately, that the fight did leave permanent damage to the right eye of Margarito. This eye almost lost him his license to fight upon a medical inspection. During Margarito's next and final bout against Miguel Cotto, his eye suffered severe swelling and caused him to lose the bout via doctor/referee stoppage.
The fight generated 1.15 million buys and 64 million dollars in revenue and the attendance was 41,734.
