By Ted Sares

In round three, Manny Pacquiao, 44-3-2, dispatched a completely beaten Erik Morales, 48-5, with a buzz saw attack and heavy and lightening quick hands. There was no particular drama involved, nor will it be a candidate for fight of the year....it was too short and one-sided for that. Erik made an attempt to fight back in round three but that only opened the door for Manny who closed matters out with his non-stop attack and brutal left hands thrown with the deadliest of intentions. When Morales went down for the last time, he shook his head at his corner. He knew he was a beaten man. He knew the long run had come to a close.

How "Pac Man" could get any better than tonight is hard to imagine. He was pure excitement and a fan's dream. Another Manny, Manny Steward says there "are still some flaws in Manny." Great! That makes him all the more exciting.

As for "El Terrible," the many great fights he has given us have clearly taken a toll. Moreover, his loss of weight did him little good on this fight. Erik, please, it's time to go. You have always had the heart of a champion and always endeavored to thrill the us. Now, it is time get out and await your induction into the Hall of Fame.

Simply put, Manny Pacquiao is the most exciting fighter in the sport of boxing today.

All in all, a satisfying night.

im gutted. i thought erik had wgat it takes to beat pac or even last 10 rounds but he just isnt the same fighter anymore. I hope he retires because it is still on a high note. All respect to manny pacquiao and his next big fight could be marco antonnio barrera. This could prove to be interseting.

I totally didn't see that coming. I know those rounds were really tough on Morales, but the last thing I would have ever expected is that he would just give up. I hate to disagree with you Ted, but I didn't find it to be a satisfying night at all and I'm one of the folks that bet on Manny. I found it very disheartening to see such a great fighter, (Morales), go out like that if he does indeed retire.

thats what morales got with his wide boastful mouth:cheeky4: before the fight (interviews), he cant actually see where the punches are coming from. I think he has to go back to the mountains :p, the supremacy of PACMAN in all aspect speaks for itself. Next target would be MARCO. And it would be a miss match once again.

I realize that MAB has a belt right now, but why would he target MAB next?!

He already defeated him. Is there a big call to unify? I'd like to see him gain five pounds and move up a division....

I thought Pac-man would win, but how quickly it ended was a surprise to me.

I knew Morales is the back side of his career, but Manny just dominated him.

Morales should find some sucker, blow him out and just walk off into the sun set. He had a wonderful career, and always gave us a decent fight (last fight not included).
