December 6, 2008: Dela Hoya-Pacquiao mega fight

Who would have guessed? Eventually Oscar dela Hoya and Manny Pacquiao have come to terms and have agreed FINALLY to fight on December 6, 2008.

After the talks somewhat came to a halt after disagreements on the purse sharing, the two camps have finally settled regarding this and have announced that the mega buck fight would push through.

Pacman is mum regarding the details about the agreed sharing on the purse but said that it is already acceptable to him and would train hard with Freddie Roach for this fight, the biggest test so far in his illustrious career.

Some critics accuse the Golden Boy of not picking his own size and the right challenge for his last fight in Antonio Margarito and instead picking on somebody way smaller than him. Oscar dela Hoya says Pacman is the right man for this fight, having won all of his fights since 2005 and being the world’s best pound for pound fighter.

But surely, this could be a classic, and a great payday for both fighters, of course.

Pacman has actually nothing to lose in this fight being a smaller guy and his lightweight belt not on the line. But certainly has everything to gain… especially if he knocks down the Golden Boy, who knows?

The Philippines would be praying for their boxing hero’s success.

We just hope nothing career ending injury would be sustained by the much smaller fighter. Pacman giving about 4 inches in height and about 6 inches in reach to the much favored Golden Boy.
