Surely, fans in the Philippines will go crazy about this December slug fest between Pacman and Golden Boy. This fight will further boost Pacquiao's popularity and market value. For sure, this will be the biggest ever boxing match that a Filipino will ever face.
We Filipinos feel it is a win-win situation for Pacquiao. Why? Because of the fame and fortune that this fight will benefit him. De la Hoya should be the most celebrated non-heavyweight boxer after Sugar Ray Leonard and Sugar Ray Robinson and he chose to fight Pacquiao on his very last boxing match. Some analysts say it is a mismatch. De La Hoya is five inches taller than Pacquiao and is obviously, the bigger fighter. Others have managed to even comment that De la Hoya should take someone his own size and not somebody smaller.
What are your thoughts about it?
