The transcript below is from the video “Opponents BEFORE and AFTER Fighting Manny Pacquiao” by Motivedia – Boxing.

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“In boxing, looks can be deceiving. The misconception of those fighters who have more bite than bark and those who look much less dangerous at the weigh-in than when that first punch hits home. And alongside Ruiz Jr., Golovkin and many more, very few fit this persona quite like a man who can be considered today’s most successful active fighter.”

Announcer:

“Manny…”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Manny ‘PacMan’ Pacquiao. A relatively small, kind and humble Filipino fighter whose fight night performances bring much more than meets the eye. Here contrasting the humble and the arrogant, we look at some of Pacquiao’s opponents from the past, around the time that he was arguably at both his physical and commercial prime. All of which, rightly so, believed that they could beat the 8-weight world champion.”

Commentator:

“I think he has all the tools it takes to beat a guy like Manny Pacquiao.”

“If there ever was a time to beat Pacquaio it would be in this fight.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“In the same performances that lead to Manny becoming one of the boxing’s most respected figures of all time. Join us as we look at before and after fighting Manny Pacquiao. Welcome to a Motivedia presentation.

First up we go back eleven years, to a night billed as, ‘The Dream Match’. Pacquiao versus De La Hoya.”

Oscar De La Hoya:

“I just have to make sure Pacquiao when he comes in with his explosive style, and his hard punches, I have to make sure I have my hands up.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Even then, Manny was considered the world’s number one pound for pound fighter. However, many pundits speculated that the size and reach difference was simply too great.”

Oscar De La Hoya:

“My motivation has been his skills. My motivation has been his youth.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“And whilst there was little if any trash talk, Oscar told News stations that he and his team were unbeatable.”

Tony Weeks – Referee at the Pacquiao vs De La Hoya Match:

“Protect yourselves at all times. Let’s go.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Instead, after being made the betting underdog, Manny exposed Oscar’s age on the night in one of the best displays of his career.”

Commentator:

“What I saw was a beat down. I saw Oscar De La Hoya be completely dismantled. I think this tremendously damaged his legacy.”

Oscar De La Hoya:

“I just couldn’t pull the trigger. I was gunshot.”

Larry King – American Television Host:

“Were you hurt in that fight?”

Oscar De La Hoya:

“Never. Just emotionally.”

Commentator:

“Has a lot of energy that was very defeating.”

“We didn’t know him to be what he was and what he became after that. Were you shocked in that? I mean we were shocked. Were you shocked too?”

Oscar De La Hoya:

“I was shocked for about two years.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Next, six months later, a showdown with Britain’s beloved brawler, Ricky Hatton. Eighteen months after the hitman’s loss to Mayweather, he’d agreed to jump straight back in at the deep end and labeling Pacquiao as one-dimensional, he launched a more verbal approach during the build-up.”

Ricky Hatton:

“Same move every time. Ride a hook, roll under. Ride a hook, role under. Just give him something to spin off onto.”

Commentator:

“If there’s was ever a time for Hatton to be up to beat Pacquiao it would be in this fight.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“One day come fight night didn’t bode too well. Over in brutal fashion with a picture-perfect punch. A devastating loss that ultimately led to Hatton’s retirement.”

Ricky Hatton:

“That man did win by me when he put his hands like that so early on in the match, you know, you’re a victim…”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Another six months on and yet another hall of fame fighter stepped forward. Miguel Cotto, a Puerto Rican with just one loss to his name at the time.”

Miguel Cotto:

“I’m around 50% sure I’m going to beat Manny. I’m the stronger bucks in a bus. I’m pretty smart.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“In a build-up void of arrogance or brashness, Cotto did however expect to be able to overpower Pacquiao, just like the rest. Ironically carrying his power into the late browns, Pacquiao managed a stoppage in the 12th making him the first 7-weight world champion in history.”

Miguel Cotto:

“If there is a selection to play the big name, I’m all the way available and Manny is one of the best boxers we have of all time.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Early 2010, and this time it was the turn of Josh Clottey, a Ghanaian fighter who funnily enough also returned to the ring earlier this year now aged 41.”

Joshua Clottey:

“I’m happy that he gives me the opportunity. Because if Manny says he’s not going to fight you, it’s not going to happen. The friendship dies when you get to the ring. After the fight the friendship comes back.”

“I know what I’m going to face, and I know who I’m going to beat. It’s not going to be an easy fight for all of us at all.”

Commentator:

“Another matchup which lacked any animosity between two calm, respectful fighters.”

“There’s no moment better, than the moments right before the opening bell of a Manny Pacquiao fight.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“On the night however, Pacquiao pulled off a shut-out performance. Not losing a step.”

Commentator:

“What an amazing combination puncher this man is.”

Joshua Clottey:

“I respect him. And he is the best mobile fighter. Everybody I’ve fought, I don’t think I’ve lost. I lost to Manny Pacquiao. He is very very fast.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Contrastingly at the back end of the year, Pacquiao’s second attempt at negotiations with Mayweather had broken down. Cue the arrival of a much less humble and popular opponent, the infamous, Antonio Margarito.”

Antonio Margarito:

“It’s that b***h, Pacquiao.” (Translated from Spanish)

“We are going to have to beat him. He should be scared right now. Scared that we’re going to beat Manny Pacquiao.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Somewhat of a bittersweet victory for the smaller and more humble man.”

Commentator:

“Would he be able to pull off a spectacular stoppage…he’s really piling it on. Right here in this fourth round.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Manny mauled the Mexican fighter over 12 rounds. And there truly couldn’t have been a more fitting occasion for Pacquiao, now the octuple champion to reach boxing’s greatest accolade.”

Antonio Margarito:

“We knew Manny was very fast and we were going good until I got cut and then that’s when the problem started coming.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Next, eleven months after Manny’s knockout loss to Márquez in late 2012, he returned to face Brandon Ríos also trained under Robert Garcia in California.”

Brandon Ríos:

“You know what, to me I think he’s scared, and Freddie Roach is scared. I wouldn’t be surprised if he tries to cancel the fight saying that I hurt my hair or something. Just because he’s scared.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“After the first clash of camps in the Margarito fight, it meant that the beef this time around was more about the trainers than the fighters themselves.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Yet in the same clinical fashion, Pacquiao proved too fast and too active. Putting a second ‘L’ on Ríos’s resume.”

Brandon Ríos:

“Like I worked my ass so hard. Five months in the gym training, training, training.”

“I gotta look at 24/7, I gotta look at…”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Another year on and another unbeaten fighter. This time the spark fast, New York native, Chris Algieri.”

Chris Algieri:

“After I beat Manny, I’ll have a lot more pulse, a lot more fuse that I’ll be able to…”

Interviewer:

“About knocking Manny Pacquiao out in China right next to his hometown?”

Chris Algieri:

“I mean that’s uh, it’s hard to say what would happen after that but either way my career is going to be catapulted into another stratosphere after this fight.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Humble and respectful, he entered the fight with nothing but praise for Pacquiao.”

Commentator:

“Pacquiao said if he doesn’t want to punch, I will create an action. If he does punch, I’ll pound…”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Praise that he’s continued to preach exponentially throughout the Filipino’s ongoing career.”

Chris Algieri:

“He’s a savvy veteran with 65 fights and he knows exactly how his style works.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Even to today, six years on, where he expects him to overwhelm Keith Thurman in a couple of weeks time. Less than 3 years ago, Jessie Vargas also came in thinking he had the tools to beat, now aging version of Manny. Expecting to overwhelm Pacquiao to avenge the losses of Barrera and Morales, putting himself as Top Rank’s hottest asset.”

Jessie Vargas:

“You know I planned it as a kid. I said I wanted to take him out and now I get the opportunity to do so. And I will. I will have to beat Manny Pacquiao. I will beat their top dog, their top guy. You know I mean they’re going to push me from then on.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Following the pattern, Vargas believed his speed and size would be too much. Just like the rest, Pacquiao dropped him in the second to win comfortably across all three scorecards.”

Jessie Vargas:

“I tried my best. You know. I promise to come back stronger and I tried looking for the big tear. I tried connecting with the Big Shots. I mean I threw more punches than Manny, so I was looking for the win.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“And whilst most believe that, yet another unfair decision loss was the end of the road for Manny, it instead sparked the desire for one last rise to the top. And that rise started with arguably the biggest contrast of the lot.”

Adrien Broner:

“Y’all think I’m about to lose to Manny Pacquiao. Man, I’m about to beat up his mother#^@%*& ass. God knows.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“The habitually loud and outspoken trash talker from Cincinnati, Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner.”

Adrien Broner:

“He fights me. I’m about to beat your mother#^@%*& ass. Floyd he already beat you Bruh!”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Despite being unable to put him away, Pacquiao stalked the American right to the final bell.”

Announcer:

“Lighting him up with his speed and now Pacquiao unloading on Broner in the corner.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Though just like Horn, Broner believed he had won by making Manny miss and hitting him clean.”

Adrien Broner:

“I beat him. Everybody out there knows I beat him. Everybody out there knows I beat him. It sounds like, it already sounds like you were already against me. So, I already don’t get a fair chance talking to you.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“The noise from the crowd however spoke volumes as onlookers saw a very different fight.”

Adrien Broner:

“I wanna thank the whole hood who came out here. I love y’all. I did this for the hood. Y’all know I beat that boy.”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Most of the majority now stand in awe of Pacquiao’s ability to fight so competitively into his later years. None are more understanding of just how capable the Filipino is than those who witnessed his scintillating best. And at a time when every fight is make-or-break, Manny now prepares for another brash confident American.”

Commentator:

“Thurman does not just beat Manny Pacquiao. Does knockout Manny Pacquiao”

Jim Foster for Motivedia – Boxing:

“Hoping to put another incredible tally on a truly remarkable career.”
