ARLINGTON, Texas — Bigger is not necessarily better.

HOLLYWOOD — Early, unconfirmed numbers coming out of Dallas said Sunday that Manny Pacquiao’s big fight against Antonio Margarito drew a total of 1.4 million pay-per-view buys.

Although AJ Banal registered his sixth straight victory since his only loss in 2008, he isn't feeling much like a winner in the aftermath of his seventh round disqualification "win" over Luis Perez at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino Ballroom in Cebu City on Oct. 30.

DALLAS — Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach questioned his fighter’s dedication to boxing in recent weeks following a training camp that was more chaotic than usual, he told Reuters on Tuesday.
Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 KOs), who takes on Mexico’s Antonio Margarito (38-6, 27 KOs) Saturday (Sunday in Manila) in Cowboys Stadium in Texas for the vacant WBA super welterweight belt, is known for being heavily involved in extra-curricular activities.
