Pacquiao rallies, stuns Morales with 10th-round TKO: Morales' face was lumpy and bruised and he appeared out of gas as the 10th round started. Then Pacquiao finished him. With two straight L's Morales says its time for a vacation.

I didn't get a chance to see the fight. I will watch the replay if its on HBO. Pacqman reminds me of a young Roberto Duran, with his power and head movement. He's an awsome fighter.

It was a great fight...all Filipinos here in Los Angeles (and all over the world) are very proud of Manny.. Next for Pacman is Barrera...that is if he is willing to be annihilated again..

Pacman vs Morales III. I can't wait to witness this fight. Last night's fight was one of the all-time greatest fights I have ever seen. Pacman has proven he is of the elite, but to knock both Morales and Barrera, puts him in the ranks of godhood right up there with Sugar Ray, and Julio Cesar. Keep up the great fighting Pacman.

I didn't get to watch the fight but every break between study I was hitting the refresh button like I was addicted. I did get the first fight ppv and it was great and brutal. I always like to see multiple fights even up, builds up some fun for the rubber match. Glad the fight was great to watch I'll be watching hbo for the rerun. I don't know if Barrera's mind is ready for a rematch but I think his pocketbook wouldn't mind. Vargas v Mosley, gosh I don't know what will happen to Mosley if he loses, however if he wins he has definately dusted himself off and has shown the people he can continue to fight at the level we have seen him fight in the past.

Manny Pacquio did all the damage to his opponent with his hard hitting left hand straight punch, he reminds me of the late Filipino world junior Lightweight champion Flash Gabriel Elorde who was a left handed fighter like him. Only I noticed Manny was so brave in his attack he needs to be careful of the counter punch, that is why he should always return his hand to protect his head after a punch. Bye, mabuhi ang mga bisaya! Retired Filipino boxing fun of Glendale, California.

Pac-Man is a beast... They've been showing all of the old matches on HBO, and Barerra is just asking for an a$$-kicking if he takes on Pacquiao again. Manny is just too fast for him. Barerra is going to have to cover up and pray for a good counter.
