By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (July 22, 2008)  
Eric Gomez who not only happens to be the vice-president for Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions, but is also a close friend of De La Hoya's since they were children, feels Manny Pacquiao is a dangerous fight for De La Hoya to take. There is a lot of commotion in the boxing world that De La Hoya maybe gearing up to take on Manny Pacquiao in his final fight before hanging up the gloves.

Speaking to dzSR radio's Dennis Principe, Gomez stated in regards to De La Hoya taking on Pacquiao: "[That] is a dangerous fight for Oscar."

Gomez added during the interview: "Manny has the speed and he’s got the power. It’s a very dangerous fight for Oscar."

Even though Gomez has some concerns about the fight, Golden Boy Promotions is serious about making the fight happen. "It’s a matter of getting together and making the deal happen. It’s a matter of getting the numbers and to see if we can get it done.”
