stunning win by Pacquiao

The highly publicized “Dream Match” between world’s boxer best pound for pound Manny Pacquiao and Boxing’s Golden boy Oscar Dela Hoya turn out to be indeed a mismatch.The only difference is that it was Pacquiao who won by stunning upset that could put to an end to the colorful boxing career of dela Hoya.

It was so stunning that dela hoya did not continue the fight anymore before the ninth bell rings.

As so called ring experts told that it will be dela hoya coming out with spectacular performance and put Pacquiao away by knockout or decision, it was the other way around.

Dela hoya was obviously given his last boxing lesson.

Not to take away anything from dela hoya but i think he is done as far as fighting in the ring is concern.

He had already shown his capabilities and surely be remembered and revered as one of the finest boxer in his era but it is time to go.

Pacman really is the toast of boxing right now.

With the help of trainer/coach Freddie Roach, he was phenomenon it the fight.

Clear fight plan and superb conditioning.

He had also close escape from the punches of dela hoya but he overcome them all.

Pacquiao deserves all the credit!!!


The world’s best pound for pound boxer Manny Pacquiao will prevail over Golden Boy Oscar Dela Hoya. Both had a easy weigh in and they look in the best shape of their lives.

From what i saw in photos the much emphasized height and reach advantage or in general the so called bigger dela hoya factor is practically gone as they are obviously in the same weight now.

What is glaring is Pacquiao looks much fresher.

He seem very comfortable with his weight.

The betting is also closing in.

The once stood 2-1 in favor of dela hoya is fast becoming even.

Dela hoya will still favorite but once the bell rings it will be fighter vs fighter, dela hoya vs pacquiao, experience vs youth.

the so called general view that good bigman will prevail over a good small men does not always holds true.

The Pacquiao vs Dela Hoya fight will prove it.

Because the good small man here is better that the good big man.

Foremost reason, the small man happens to have the biggest heart of the two.

Yes Manny Pacquiao secret is his fighting heart.

It is his edge and it will be the x-factor in this fight.

Pacman by decision.
