De La Hoya vs Pacquaio is on

I think this is a joke
Manny has fought at 110 pounds in the past and will fight a guy that walks around probably 40 to 50 heavier than him
30 to 40 mill will do just about anything though.

Pac Man hasn't fought below 130 in over four years, and just looked great at 135 in dismantling David Diaz. I'm actually excited to see him fight at 147. It should be an exciting fight, the Delahoya finale, and a ton of people watching.

Plus, there ain't no one for Manny to fight at 135. Casamayor? Campbell? Baby Bull Diaz? He'd walk right through any of those guys.

If he looks legitimate at 147, there's a slew of potentially awesome fights for him there at welterweight.

All of which will pay a hell of a lot more than fighting Casamayor or Campbell. You picture a Pac Man/Margarito fight? With the backdrop of what Manny has done to all Mexico's best fighters?

Pac Man's no dummy. And he consistently seeks out the toughest fights.

Great news.

I disagree big time.
I think Manny is going to get beat up by a guy that is a lot bigger than him. The only gain for him (as this of course is as a boxing fan) is a shitload of money.

Margarito would destroy Pac-man
The weight difference will be felt

I wonder what the PPV cost will jump up to?

Maybe not Delahoya's farewell fight ...

If he loses to Manny, he better f-ing retire.
He hasn't won a meaningful fight in a long long time
