"I wanted Margarito to win. I mean my heart was with him and I thought he had a pretty good chance, but after Pacquiao cut him - I knew it was over. Manny is a gentleman, because he had Tony hurt in the 10th round and he could have finished him, but he let Tony survive. He showed his class and that is why he is the best. I am not ashamed to be on his list of victims because he is great." --Marco Antonio Barrera (BoxingScene.com)
