Manny Pacquiao Beats Oscar De La Hoya In 8 Rounds
This was one of the most shocking fights i have seen in a vey long time. Manny Pacquiao Vs Oscar De La Hoya was considered by most as an easy fight for Oscar De La Hoya! Many people said Oscar is just too big and strong, no one thought about Oscar turning up and not really throwing any punches!! Well thats what happened.
Manny Pacquiao Totally dominated this fight from start to finish, it was so one sided that Oscar De La Hoya's cornermen stopped the fight at the end of the 8th round, with Oscars eye very swollen. He's face looked like he had been fighting a heavyweight.
From the start Oscar De La Hoya just wasn't throwing enough punches, looking confused with Manny Pacquiao's speed and elusive style. Manny Pacquiao was beating him to the punch on every exchange, moving in and out too quick for De La Hoya.
We all thought Oscars power would be a big factor, but the truth is he hardly connected with manny all night, and when he did Manny Pacquiao done a good job of covering up and taking the shots well, or simply moving out the way. Mannys head movement was superb.
In my honest opinion, Oscar De La Hoya did not turn up on fight night for whatever reason, either that or he is finished and should call it a day. Not taking anything away from Manny Pacquiao, he fought a perfect fight, but he wasn't tested at all.
I don't think no one expected Oscar De La Hoya to get totally dominated like that, we at least expected a more even fight. For Oscar De La Hoya to be ok with the decision to end the fight after 8 Rounds was quite sad, even his corner men said theres nothing you can do to stop Manny.
For Manny Pacquiao the future is bright, he will now almost certainly face Ricky Hatton at Wembley Stadium in London England for a super fight that will be a total sell out.
The futures not too bad for Oscar De La Hoya either, he is worth well over 100 Million dollars (that's a low estimate) and he earned round about 25-30 Million for this fight alone so hey, the Golden Boy's done good.
Im sure he will fight again at some point.
Manny Pacquiao did not get tested in this fight but im sure when he faces Ricky Hatton he will be.
