Steward on Paquiao-Margarito: Too Fast, Too Furious

“Even though (Pacquiao)’s physically much smaller, I think he’s going to just be too much for Margarito,” Steward said in an exclusive discussion with US-based On the Ropes Boxing Radio.

66-year-old Steward became known for training boxers in the renowned Michigan-based Kronk Gym, which he fronted the “Save the Kronk” campaign for in 1998.

Steward said the 7-title holder, who is 5’7″ in height and has now weight down to 148 pounds, is swifter against 5’11” Margarito.

“Even though (Margarito) has a physical advantage, I just don’t think he’s going to be sharp enough to deal with the speed and accuracy and pinpoint punching of Manny,” he said.

Paquiao is also said to be a “special, special machine”. The trainer seems to have fun in giving Manny different titles himself.

Alongside being a Filipino lightweight boxer, Manny has a big chance in winning over Margarito. Should he beat him, he will become the first boxer who won 8 world titles in 8 divisions.

We say, go beat him Manny! Make us real proud! Go for the 8th!
