Antonio Margarito Face: Watch Pacquiao vs. Margarito Face Injury Blow by Blow (Video)

antonio margarito face pacquiao vs margarito fight eye injury

Antonio Margarito's face took a beating during the Pacquiao fight

Antonio Margarito face pics and video show a very badly beaten boxer in the Pacquiao vs. Margarito fight this weekend.

Watch Margarito’s face in the blow-by-blow video below to see Margarito’s injury throughout the 12 rounds.

Antonio Margarito’s face was cut and swollen by the end of the fight against Pacquiao, with Margarito suffering a fractured orbital bone and requiring surgery.

Though Margarito lasted all 12 rounds, Pacquiao was the winner of the fight in a unanimous decision.

Margarito’s face took a beating, but the injury will not impact his career. The surgery will be performed once the eye swelling has been reduced.

Promoter Bob Arum noted that Margarito is “in very good spirits and he’s not in pain. They just have to wait until the swelling reduces, then they can do the surgery and he’ll be released to fly home.”

I can’t think of a stronger message to keep kids out of the sport of boxing than images like Margarito’s face. Ouch.
