Manny Pacquiao will fight back

From WBC President Jose Sulaiman: “I am very proud of the whole show that was presented on March 19 in Las Vegas, and especially the extraordinary fight between Erik Morales and Manny Pacquiao. Morales showed that he is, without question, one of the the very best fighters pound-for-pound in the world..

“I would like to pay respect to the courage and bravery of Pacquiao, as well, who I feel did not lose. To the contrary, I think he won prestige with his outstanding performance.

“This was a war between two great warriors. With this win, Morales won the WBC International championship and became the one and only official challenger for super featherweight world champion Marco Antonio Barrera, as was approved by the WBC Board of Governors before the fight.

“I believe that Erik became the psychological and mental winner right in the first round. Manny drove him back to the ropes with five or six consecutive hard punches, but Erik immediately came back and took Manny back to the ropes, where he connected with six or seven even harder punches. To me, that set the tone for the rest of the fight, where Erik showed the steel of which he is built."

Manny will make a BIG come back. Watch out, Joe!
