Tonight, just seven days out from his own battle in the ring, 3-Time World Champion Paul Williams and his insightful trainer give their opinions on the much anticipated Pacquiao vs. Margarito competition.
PAULWILLIAMS: "It's a toss up."
GEORGE PETERSON:"I believe that Manny has better foot and hand speed and it is because of that I see him having no problem with Margarito. Margarito has been in a couple of battles and you don't know what's left of him. He has had a long lay off. He doesn't have the hand speed, footwork. And is not as knowledgeable as Pacquiao."
