The annual Oscar De La Hoya mega-event is back! De La Hoya has made a career out of one major fight per year, with occasional tune-ups in between. His success rate has been so-so in recent years, but financially he has made off filthy rich, earning more than any other boxer of this generation not named Mike Tyson.

This time, the man standing across the ring is pound for pound champion Manny Pacquiao. Pacquiao is moving up two divisions to welterweight, astonishing considering he started his career at junior flyweight. Now he looks
to add his sixth world championship in six divisions as he faces off against the face of boxing.

And oh yeah, somewhere out there, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is watching, very closely.

You can watch De La Hoya take on Pacquiao, Tomorrow, Saturday December 6 on HBO-PPV.
