Oscar De La Hoya vs Manny Pacquiao; Make it Happen - Boxing
By Johnny Benz (Feb 14, 2008) Doghouse Boxing  
A good possibility in the boxing world is the chance of Oscar De la Hoya vs Manny Pacquiao. Richard Schaefer, the CEO of De La Hoya's promotional company feels there is a very good chance that De La Hoya's final match could come against Pacquiao later this year or early next year.

The possibility of these two fighting one another is a fight fan's dream. Not only that, it's something the sport of Boxing will thrive off. Pacquiao brings to the table 80 million plus screaming fans from the Philippines, and let us
not forget the fans he has in America as well. And De La Hoya is a household name that spans the globe. His fights consistently break records, and there is no signs of his fan base slowing down. Two exciting fighters, both with more than exceptional careers and skills worthy of celebration.

What would make this fight explosive and definitely one for the ages is the fight style both would bring. Pacquaio is a fighter who loves to be in his opponents face and slugging it out. With such excellent skills, there are not many fighters like Pacquaio who are comfortable fighting in the zone. De La Hoya in many respects is the same. De La Hoya does not fear toe to toe slugging and often looks most comfortable when fighting in such a manner. These two will go at each other like two hungry pitbulls in heat.

Plains and simple, this fight needs to be made. There is no need to wonder how well it will do in Pay-Per-View revenue, as many won't be surprised if this fight out does the 2 million plus pay-per-view buys that De La Hoya's fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. brought in last year. For the fans the bang for their buck, considering the way these two fight, should easily outshine De La Hoya's fight with Mayweather Jr.

Mr Schaefer, if you are reading this... please warm the cockles of my heart and fans alike and make this fight happen. You can make it happen and I'd love to see a fight poster advertising De La Hoya vs. Pacquiao. Mr. Schaefer please keep in mind... it won't be the World that awaits this one, it will be the Universe that surely waits in anticipation. It will be out of this World. (You might want to make sure NASA and the Space Shuttle are hooked up to HBO and that any E.T's. can pick up the signal.)
