With the highly anticipated match-up between Manny Pacquiao vs. Oscar De La Hoya set for this coming Saturday, December 6th with the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as the venue, I've compiled some great quotes from the promotion leading upto the fight. Enjoy!

In regards to De La Hoya's motivation for the fight, De La Hoya recently stated: "At this stage of my career, the biggest motivation I have is my family. It's a lot different being married and having kids that need you
and care about you.

"After a couple months up here I called Millie and told her they had to come and be with me as I missed them and needed them here. Just having them around, seeing my son and daughter everyday is all the motivation I need. You saw my son (Oscar Gabriel) at the gym today and just seeing his joy is a huge boost for me mentally.

"At this point it is all about my family. That is what I fight for at this stage of my career and it is the best reason I have had so far."
