Philippine Boxing News: Oscar De La Hoya Talks About Manny “Money” Pacquiao

The Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya gave his comments about his upcoming 12-round non-title bout versus Manny Pacquiao on December 6, 2008 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. He had some pretty fair stuff to say about Manny Pacquiao, but of course included a bit of trash talk, and other talk about his career and the other fights that could’ve been had Manny Pacquiao backed out of the deal. I came across Oscar De La Hoya‘s comments, by accidentally stumbling upon this You Tube video.

There’s even some Floyd Mayweather Jr. trash talk on the video with him showing off  1 million dollars. “Put your money where your mouth is. I’ve got a big mouth, and I’ve got big money.”  Well, from what I recall, Mayweather did beat De La Hoya via split decision.

Anyway, Oscar De La Hoya also discusses his take on Manny Pacquiao’s style of boxing versus his own, and also talks about Pacman’s insatiable hunger for his share of the fight purse. Or can I say gluttony? Well, Manny Pacquiao just probably wants more money to make up for the few million pesos he’s leaked from “bad” investments. Kasi naman, Manny, tama na yung high-stakes betting sa billiards at sa poker.

Anyway, it’s an exclusive interview with Oscar De La Hoya who explains everything that’s going down on the fight against Manny Pacquiao, including a preview of the awesome under card for the night.

I won’t give out too much information, just listen to what Oscar De La Hoya has to say.

Manny Pacquiao – any response? Can we use this quote on your behalf – “Sana maka-chamba ulit parang kay Marquez.”

Incidentally, De La Hoya-Pacquiao Tickets and Ringside Seats for December 6 at the MGM Grand Arena are available here.

  1. i think it could go either way because they’r both explosive fighter. but the speed is going to be the difference. if dela hoya can’t keep up with manny speed i’m sure he’ going to be knock out. but as i said it could go either way. manny good luck!!!
