The Main Event:

The Pacquiao-Cotto fight is about to start.

Big time celebrities were shown on screen. I've got to notice Mark Wahlberg, Magic Johnson, Mickey Rourke, etc.

Singing "Lupang Hinirang", the Philippine National Anthem, is the trio La Diva, composed of Aicelle Santos (in yellow), Jonalyn Viray (in red) and Maricris Garcia (in blue).

Puerto Rican national anthem is next, then the national anthem of the USA follows.

"Let's get ready to ruuuummmble!!!!!"

Manny Pacquiao looked so confident and relaxed while Miguel Cotto was a bit nervous, but very determined.

Puerto Rican fans cheered loudly for Cotto.

Cotto started the fight strongly, owning Round 1.

But Pacquiao doesn't give up easily. He won the 2nd Round by a small margin.

On Round 3, Pacquiao knocked down Cotto, but the latter recovered.

Round 4 is again in favor of Pacquiao. He's way too fast for Cotto.

Start of Round 5...

Oh no, Cotto recovered his strength. Pacquiao might be in danger. The Puerto Rican boxer won that round.

But in Round 6, Pacquiao was in full control. Thanks to his great speed and strength!

It continued until Round 7, wherein Cotto was obviously hurtin' of Pacquiao's power punches.

During Round 8, Cotto showed great strength by throwing some punches for Pacquiao, but it didn't have great effect on Pacman. The Filipino boxer owned this round.

Cotto slowed down in Round 9. Pacquiao won the 9th round on a big distance. Oh no, are we expecting a knockout again?

Round 10 has started...

No knockout yet!

But Cotto's goodlooking face is now damaged. Nose bleeding...eyes are bulging.... The monitor showed his wife and son crying and eventually walked out the venue.

Round 10 belonged to Manny.

Cotto is trying to survive the fight. Yes, he survived 11th Round, but he lost that round to Pacman.

The 12th and final round...

I still salute Cotto for reaching this far. Will he survive this round? He didn't want to be knocked down but the referee (Kenny Bayless) has decided to stop the game with 2 minutes left.

Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao was declared winner via a 12th Round TKO.

Congrats Manny and to the whole Philippines!
