PREDICTION: PACQUIAO OVER DELA HOYA

The mega bout of the year, Boxing World’s pound for pound Manny Pacquiao against Boxing’s Golden Boy Oscar Dela Hoya is nearing!

Both camps have already begun trumpeting their best preparations for the bout.

Both camps predict knockout victory as both trainers assured that their fighters are in the best shape of their lives.

As a humble boxing fan, I predict a victory of Pacquiao over Dela Hoya.

It could be a knockout or decision again with Pacman emerging as victor.

Why I say so.

Again, Pacman’s speed and youth will be the huge difference.

Speed to overcome Dela Hoya’s power and height.

Dela Hoya’s age and recent performance are enough evidence.

The golden boy is old 35 not young 35.

His showings in his last three bouts are lacklustre.

His only escape I believe is scoring a knockout in the early rounds.

If he connects with his so called vaulted power surely Pacman’s chance will end there.

I am sure that Pacman will never recover in case he got hit because Dela Hoya’s power will bee too much for me to shake off or withstand.

If he got hit, surely he can not run and be at the Golden Boy’s mercy.

Anyway I assume that Pacman’s trainer has antidote for that and Pacman knows too well of such reality.

If Pacman survives the 5th round and still remain unhurt, he will coast for a knockout or decision victory.

I have the highest respect to Dela Hoya.

He is probably one of the greatest boxer ever produce though not among the all time greats in the level of Mohammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, Rocky Marciano and others.

At this time, he is way past his prime.

If the bout is staged two years earlier even with Pacman at the peak of his career, Dela Hoya will surely come out the winner.

As Pacman’s trainer Freddie Roach said, he can’t pull the trigger already and it is undeniable.

Pacquiao vs dela hoya:Pacquiao self distracting again?????

The much hype and mega bout of boxing superstar and legend Oscar Dela Hoya and boxing most exciting and current boxing’s best pound for pound Manny is taking a new twist.

Aside from the boxing bout, Pacquiao is again hot this time in his political plans as he was recently sworn in as Kampi member, a political party of the Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

The new political development in Pacquiao’s case again put added distraction to Manny even tough he immediately shrugged off.

Obviously there is and will be distractions again.

His training will surely be affected.

Why? because he had open again an avenue for people from all ways of life, all with different interest to approached him.

His obvious interest in politics will force him to bend and give attention to people not related to his upcoming mutli million fight.

Pacquiao is already the under dog and will be hard press to win in this bout and still find another distraction.

Dela Hoya or more popular as the golden boy will put everything on the line in this bout so expect him to give his all.

Beside the recent betting in the world’s gambling capital, La Vegas, show that he is the clear winner as of the moment.

Will the bettors put their hard earn dollars just in exchange for nothing.

Pacquiao should connect now with his world famous trainer freddie roach.

Roach had always been very honest and straight forward in his comment for Pacquiao be it in his favor and against him because of his concern to his prized catch ward.

Pacquiao admitted that he will be in for the fight of life. he should show signs and start proving it.

Forget for now politics, it will not help but deter his slim chances.

think after he hang his golden gloves.

For now concentrate on boxing because it is where he made a name for himself and currently on top of the world.
