Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Manny Pacquiao and Iqbal Al Mamood. Chooooooooon! I think Pacquiao might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Its Time for War. Al Mamood has chosen Mamute Pequenino as his entrance music. Iqbal Al Mamood struggled to make weight for this fight. He only made it down to 156.6lbs at the first attempt and had to take the additional two hours to make the official bout weight. Let's see how much it's taken out of him. Manny Pacquiao has the better chin. Will he look to stand and bang today?
