Olympic Gold medalist and 10-time world champion “The Golden Boy” OSCAR DE LA HOYA will face current Ring Magazine No. 1-ranked pound for pound champion MANNY “Pacman” PACQUIAO on Saturday, December 6 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada in a bout that will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View.
The bout will be a 12-round, non-title fight contested at the 147-pound welterweight limit. This exciting and intriguing match-up pits two of the most recognizable and popular talents in the sport today in what will surely be the grand finale of the 2008 boxing calendar year.
I have seen Manny Pacquiao fights even before he became a famous celebrity because of his great boxing skills. Of course I am very proud and I will surely support Manny Pacquiao not only because he is a fellow Filipino but I am one of his fans. I will be delighted to see Manny Pacquiao knocks Oscar De La Hoya.
