We Filipinos didn’t expect this to happen but it did!!
Manny Pacquiao won! Its like Christmas and new Year here today in the Philippines!
Oscar “Golden Boy” De La Hoya stopped his “Dream Match” with Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao at the end of the eighth round of their scheduled 12-round fight. Pacquiao gave a great fight, probably his best fight ever. Manny is the WBC Lightweight champion. He kept throwing a left punch to the head of Oscar De La Hoya during the first round of their welterweight bout in Las Vegas, Nevada. And it went on and on until Oscar De La Hoya chose to give up and he stopped the fight.
Pacquiao scored a one-sided TKO over De La Hoya.
We all knew that Manny’s only chance of winning over Oscar De La Hoya was for him to knock De La Hoya out. But in the end we had a much better outcome because De La Hoya didn’t allow himself to be knocked out, he gave up instead. Well its okay as long as Manny Pacquiao won! I don’t care how as long as he won!
