          Napagwagian ni Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao ang bakanteng WBC Light Middleweight Boxing nang bugbugin niya ng husto ang higit na mabigat na si Antonio Margarito at manalo sa pamamagitan ng “unanimous decsion” noong Nobyembre 13, 2010, sa Cowboys Stadium, sa Arlington, Texas. Dahil dito siya ang kauna-unahang boxer na nagwagi ng titulo sa walong magkakaibang weight division, isang kaganapang mahirap ng burahin sa kasaysayan.
