Manny Pacquiao geat Antonio Margarito on Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium to win the vacant WBC light middleweight title, adding to his legend. Amazingly, victory for Pacquiao means he has more wins at the stadium this year than the Dallas Cowboys themselves, but that is a conversation for another time.
While his fans will hope his career extends for a long time, the events unfolding on the HBO 24/7 series suggest it may not be long before the great Filipino fighter is lost to the political world. Here, we look back on his career and highlight the top 10 knockouts with the help of video footage where possible.
The criteria for this list was that the fight must have counted as a knockout victory on Pacquiao’s record; therefore Oscar De La Hoya retiring on his stool at the end of the eighth round is eligible for the list.
