it was really awesome how manny pacquiao beat oscar dela hoya on the non-title bout last sunday.
it was labeled a mismatched in favor of dela hoya but who would have thought that it was the other way around?
watching the fight was really not much of a thrill as dela hoya wasn't throwing any punches against pacquiao.
he just let himself be clobbered by a smaller guy.
good job for pacquiao and his coach freddie roach for preparing for this fight. as for dela hoya i guess they were too confident and didn't much prepare for a strategy or fight plan. probably just relied on being able to land a powerful punch to keep pacquiao dizzy for the rest of the fight.
too bad. the fight ended(TKO) with oscar his face battered and bruised while manny with no bruises in his face at all.
but i have to give credit to dela hoya for being humble and approached pacquiao's corner as soon as his coach announced that they had enough.
when interviewed this was what the mexican fighter said,
"He was the better man. He deserves all the accolades."
"If it's not your night and a true champion defeats you... there is still another day tomorrow."
