Default Pacquiao vs. De la Hoya

fight is scheduled in mid december, going tobe absolutely nuts, the 2 most recognizable boxers in the world right now will face off in a 100 million dollar match. 50 mill for the golden boy and possibly 25+mill for the pac man.

this is Dela Hoyas last match and it's pretty safe to say this will be the best match in decades. Pacquaio has been moving up weight classes like crazy, it's quite shocking to know that he started his boxing career 10 years ago at 106lbs, going into this fight he has to make weight of at least 147lbs. Dela Hoya on the other usually fights higher weightclasses and this will be the lightest he's ever been since he won gold medal back in 94.

Pacquaio who many consider as the #1 pound for pound boxer in the world will definitely have a hard time with Oscar as Oscar has a 4 inch height advantage and a 6 inch reach advantage. Pacquiao though has the youth(29), speed, and enough power to knock down Dela Hoya.

My prediction for this $50 fight.....Pacquaio wins by TKO in the 11th.
