Manny Pacquiao made history by defeating Oscar de la Hoya at the 8th round by TKO. It’s a dream come true for Manny Pacquiao. It’s not everyday that you win a fight with Oscar de la Hoya.
Knowing he doesn’t stand a chance with Pacquiao, De la Hoya refused to come out of his corner after the 8th round of the welterweight duel at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. Quoting one commentator, Pacquiao “reconfigured” the pretty face of De la Hoya. Good thing his corner ended up the fight the way they did or De la Hoya would end up beaten to a pulp.
After this fight, who’s going to challenge Manny Pacquiao in the boxing ring? Will it be Ricky Hatton? Does this mean retirement for De la Hoya? Let’s wait and see.
