Manny is gonna get all inside Oscar's head from the first round bell.He's never gonna allow Oscar to get off.Oscar just doesn't have the speed to match Pacquiao.They will both be in excellent condition for sure.But De La Hoya has been wanting to retire for years,and Manny's gonna give him the big send off by knock out in the 9th/10th round.
They are both gentlemen and sportsmen,but there is something very humble about the nature of Pacquiao.He is a great one and it's his time.Oscar is a great one but his times up.He has everyone imaginable in camp with him,but tonite he's gonna be all alone in the ring with Pac-Man.
Golden Boy-experience in big fights,trainers/corner,size,and he's fighting at his natural weight.
Pac-Man-hand speed,mobility,youth,relentless combonations,and that he's probably pound for pound the best fighter on earth.just sooo busy it's rediculous!
plus they are both from the ghetto,but it's been a long time since oscar was there,he's a mega-rich buisenessman now.manny's a god to his people,like a king,but his belly still has hunger pangs,it ain't ever been full yet.
whoever wins it'll be a fun one to watch,wish i could.
just my opinion,whats yours?
