Mike Tyson News: Manny has a lot of heart, says Tyson

Posted on Sunday, March 20, 2005 @ 14:37:25 UTC by tysonian
LAS VEGAS Mike Tyson was right when he said he wanted Erik Morales to win but was wrong when he said Manny Pacquiao might stop the Mexican figure.

On the eve of the fight between the two great boxers, the former heavyweight champion said he believes that Pacquiao might stop Morales "simply because he throws too many punches."

Tyson indeed watched Saturdays fight at the MGM Grand, staying in the last row of the special ringside section.

After the bout, which had Morales winning a unanimous decision, Tyson once again spoke about the super-featherweight contest.

He spoke about Pacquiao, too.

"He has a lot of heart. He was already suffering and he still went at it," said Tyson of the Filipino knockout artist who lasted the distance despite absorbing a bloody one-inch cut over his right eye in the fifth round.

"Hes like an Energizer battery (which just goes on and on) and so I expect him to be back soon. Maybe a rematch with Morales," he said.
