I was watching TV Patrol this afternoon when they announced that Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will fight Oscar “Golden Boy” De La Hoya on December 6 in Las Vegas. I’m sure this is going to be an exciting boxing event and will generate millions of dollars for both boxers. Who’s going to take how much? We’ll have to find out about that later.
Manny Pacquiao is 4 inches shorter than Oscar De La Hoya, whose height is 5’10 1/2″. The latter is also heavier. Pacquiao said that he’s expecting that it will be a difficult fight for him. De La Hoya is out to get vengeance for all the legendary Mexican fighters that Pacquiao beat. The report said that the fight will be worth more than $100 million! Whoa! This is going to be exciting!
Here’s a picture of Manny and Oscar from ESPN.
