HBO's 24/7 Pacquiao-Margarito, episode 2

Here we go.

Best spoken line, Antonio Margarito: "Everyone knows, I throw punches, I go forward
and I put the pressure on. In reality, Manny Pacquiao, he knows."
Best spoken line, Robert Garcia: "I was too nice, I never wanted to hurt anybvody."
That was spoken by a former world champion.

Best written line: "For his part, Antonio Margarito spent the day campaigning
merely for redemption."
Freddie Sez: "The Philippines, That was probably our worst training camp ever."
Best Supporting Cast: The funny Brandon Rios.
Scenic View: Strawberry fields in Oxnard.
Training Days: Margarito chopping wood, including the shard that shot up and hit
the HBO camera. (Nice use of the shutter) Perhaps Margarito should wear goggles.
Loved  Bob "Boogie Down" Arum on the dance floor.
Loved that someone was miked during that conversation in the corner when Manny was
trying to avoid talk of his trip to Vegas.
Love when guys on the show reference the show, as Margarito did when he was getting
his hands taped at the gym.
Interesting that Manny felt he was fighting at the bigger sparring partner's speed,
thus slowing himself down. Enter Amir Khan for speed.
The Elorde boxing gym. Named after Flash Elorde, a hall-of-famer, you can look it
Nice shout out to The Ring magazine.

Next episode airs on Satuardy, November 6, at 10:45 p.m.
