The trilogy ends with big cheers from Filipinos! The match dubbed as “The Grand Finale” was a TKO in the 3rd round in favor of Pacquiao!
Manny Pacquiao, before the bout, was quoted saying:
Morales will fee the strength of the people of The Philippines behind every punch I land on him. This may be the ‘Grand Finale’ on our trilogy, but it is just the beginning for Manny Pacquiao.
Both fighters came out with heedless aggression, and Pacquiao first knocked Morales down against the ropes late in the second round. Morales kept returning shots, but couldn’t keep up with Pacquiao’s pace — and after a knockdown midway through the third, Pacquiao finished him with a devastating left hook with just 3 seconds left.
Being here in Qatar, we’ve not much news about this match. I’m actually wondering, what was Manny’s theme song for this fight? How much who’s bet?
Moreover, are we even sure that the rivalry beween Pacquiao and Morales is confined only in this “trilogy”, thus “The Grand Finale”?
