SUPERFIGHT? MANNY PACQUIAO VS OSCAR DE LA HOYA MAY HAPPEN IN DECEMBER

MANNY PACQUIAO

OSCAR DE LA HOYA

Oscar De La Hoya is the biggest pay-per-view draw in boxing history.

In an interview with the Philipino newspaper the Manila Bulletin, De La Hoya recently said he would be willing to fight popular pound-for-pound champion Manny Pacquiao in December. According to De La Hoya,

 

 

 

“If Manny’s serious, I will consider doing this.”

 

Manny Pacquiao is most definitely serious. According to ESPN boxing guru Dan Rafael, Pacquiao is “hungry” for a fight against De La Hoya. The fight could bring Pacquiao a career payday-at least $20 million. De La Hoya was supposed to conclude his legendary career against Floyd Mayweather with another big paycheck. Those plans were thwarted by Mayweather’s sudden retirement.

A battle against Pacquiao may actually be more appealing and do bigger numbers than another Mayweather matchup. Although De La Hoya fought better than some expected, the first Mayweather/De La Hoya bout wasn’t exactly compelling television.

The proposed De La Hoya/Pacquiao fight would take place December 6th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It would mark De La Hoya’s final fight. According to Rafael, Pacquiao was looking for a quick payday versus Ricky Hatton, but he’s already scheduled to fight in November.

    This is very stupid, boxing is not suppost to be a joke, so its all about money now? I can’t belive this

  2. Henry Ong Says:

    It may look like a circus but believe me, I wanna see the fight regardless who wins. I think it’s the intrigue factor thats making me want to watch this. C’mon, every boxer wants to have a huge payday. I’m sure, when you apply for a job, you also try to consider if the pay is at par with your salary standards. Manny’s just doing his job.

    The question is: at what weight will they fight at. Can Oscar drop 15-25 pounds? Or will Manny move up 10 pounds. It’ll be interesting to say the least. My money is on Oscar!

    I think De La Hoya should fight Antonio Margarito. That would be better to see a fight for the sport not for the money. And can somebody tell De La Hoya to stop talking down about MMA fighters, i sure would like to see De La Hoya try to beat Roger Huerta
