Antonio Margarito Appears Dehydrated at Weigh-in for Fight with Manny Pacquiao
Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacquiao were present for their weigh-in leading up to Saturday’s clash at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The smaller Pacquiao weighed in at 144.6 while the Tijuana Tornado came in at 150, the exact agreed-upon weight limit for the fight. The two boxers are meeting for the vacant WBC light middleweight title where the weight range is 147-154 pounds. Because Pacquiao is smaller, they agreed to fight at 150. It sure looks like Margarito had to do some serious training along with weight loss efforts to reach the 150 pound maximum:
While Margacheato is defined, he looks like he pissed out about 10 pounds for this fight. He seriously looks like Lance Armstrong after doing the Tour de France. Oscar De La Hoya, while seemingly in excellent shape for his fight with Pacquiao, was over-trained for their bout. Margarito looks similar, and his durability may be a concern for Saturday. Then again, if things go as Freddie Roach predicts, that won’t even matter.
