Manny Pacquiao beat Antonio Margarito on November 13, (literally) to capture his eighth title in eight separate weight classes, adding one more belt to his record as the best fighter in the world.
Pacquiao won the fight by unanimous decision on Saturday night and solidified his standing as pound-for-pound the greatest boxer in the world today. Many columnists are touting him as possibly the greatest fighter ever.
In the fight, he treated Margarito like a rag-doll and after the bout, doctors found out that an orbital bone in Maragito's face was fractured, causing Margarito to remain in the hospital overnight. All of the stories pertaining to the fight did a thorough job of describing how the pummeling sets Pacquiao in the history books, but the Associated Press story made one mistake that was particularly confusing.
The lede of the story was good. It opened the article by immediately commenting on what the majority of pre-fight talk centered on, Pacquiao gave up nearly 20 pounds and six inches of reach to his challenger. It is short and to the point.
