EL PASO - Pac Man chews up his towering opponent from Tijuana.
"Manny Pacquiao showcased his skill, his heart and even his mercy. He did amazing. Our whole family was so proud of him. He smashed Margarito."
Professional Boxer Jennifer Han... who comes from a family of fighters... watched from her El Paso home as Manny Pacquiao used his precision, power and speed in 12 brutal rounds to rearrange the face of his Mexican-American rival Antonio Margarito.
"Even when Pacquiao was hurt, he came back stronger. I was so impressed because as a boxer, if you get hurt in the ring, you want to take a little bit of a breather time. When he gets hurt, he immediately reacts and caught clean combos on Margarito over and over again."
Another professional boxer from El Paso had ringside seats to the carnage.
"Just to be there in the attendance was just...I mean the place was going crazy. At some points, I couldn't even hear the person next to me talking."
Ranked the 12th Heavyweight WBA Boxer in the World... David Rodriguez watched as the Pac Man packed a punch... winning his eighth world title against a man outweighing him by 17-pounds.
"When you see the little guys, you see the art of boxing. You see them put their combos together. His speed, his footwork, his angles. Everything he was using was just phenomenal."
Both Han and Rodriguez say Pacquiao gives boxing a fighting chance... as interest in the sport has been down for the count in recent years. They believe a match-up against "Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather will ultimately get fans hooked.
"I honestly think Floyd doesn't want to get a loss on his record. I think he's worried Pac Man can do it."
"I think he's scared of the risk of Manny Pacquiao because Manny Pacquiao...he's incredible. He's Superman."
