  • Pacquiao Nearly Six Pounds Lighter Than Margarito

    ARLINGTON, Texas (Reuters) – Manny Pacquiao weighed in almost six pounds lighter than Antonio Margarito after the Filipino was greeted by deafening cheers from his supporters on the eve of Saturday's WBC junior middleweight title fight. Pacquiao, 51-3-2 (38 knockouts), tipped the scales at 144.6 pounds in front of a jubilant crowd of about 1,000 at the fight venue — the imposing, state-of-the-art Cowboys Stadium. Mexican Margarito (38-6, 27 KOs) was right on the limit for the scheduled 12-round bout which will be fought at a contracted weight of 150 pounds. "I have trained a lot and I think because of the training hard that's why my weight is what it is," Pacquiao told...

  • Urijah Faber Battles for Reputation at WEC 52

    Of all the things to be known for in MMA, invincibility is by far the most tenuous. For former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber, his perceived invincibility gave him a long way to fall after just three losses in his last five fights. This Thursday, Faber's WEC 52 bout against Takeya Mizugaki will not just be for his first win at bantamweight, but for his relevance as a title contender. Over the course of five featherweight title defenses, a number virtually unheard of with the hot potato that is a belt at the lighter weight classes, the California Kid's poster-boy good looks and exciting fighting style gave the WEC the face of the promotion.
