there is going to be a non title bout between Pacquiao and dela Hoya very soon....i just cant digest what a mismatch it will be..there is so big difference between the two and dela hoya have all the reach and the advantage, from physical features to experience dela Hoya can be a goliath for Pacquiao, i hope Pacquiao could be like david anyway. but if not this will be a suicide match for pacquiao...even if it is just a showdown or a promotional match no one knows what might happen..anyway this is but a commercial and purely showbiz style match for money sake and i wonder if their punches and moves are just scripted afterall...what can you say about this match anyway?

That was really a mismatch. With Dela Hoya's height and weight compare to Pacquiao that was really a big mismatch. No wonder it is only all about money why they came to that fight. I hope Manny Pacquiao will still win that fight. I wish him luck.. Good Luck to Manny Pacquiao. Hope he will win the fight..

I don't think so it is a mismatch. I remember in one interview with him, he said "I'll fight if we have the same weight." Speed & stamina will not affect if he moved to welteweight the same he did to his last fight to lightweight...Well let see....gud luck money pakyaw...

hmmm, dela hoya really have a big advantage towards pacquiao in so many ways but we should also keep in our mind that manny is much younger than oscar and that manny's speed was magnifecent and i i think that was oscar dont have!!!i just hope and wish that manny won this fight!!!GO GO GO MANNY...

i hope too that it will work that way friend, im just worried about our fellow filipino who are risking so much for a cause..anyway manny will bring so much "manny" with him from that fight and that will be a great help again to the lives of many that are depending on manny's money....and of course of his popularity...

Pacquiao will win this fight. Oscar Dela Hoya is out of his prime anymore.

i think it's gonna be a boring match. the winner will obviously be dela Hoya since he has already been fighting in that weight level for so long and he is more experienced compared to pacquiao. i guess pacquiao was just after the money. lol

lets see what will really come out of this fight...i think nobody can bank on a sure win since pride and a very big amount of green money is involved in this match...lets see what manny will do anyway to win over dela hoya..

Well I guess even if these are for money only. I don';t think that Pacquiao would agree to lose in here and would tarnish his reputation just for the money. I am also worried about the fight but I am looking forward for this fight and see if luck would still be for Pacquiao side. This is one event that many of us Pinoys will be stuck in our homes trying to watch the match.

I dont know about that, De la hoya is bigger than pacquiao so i dont think it is a fair match. I dont understand why they think it will be an interesting fight either. Obviously de la hoya has lots of advantage over pacquiao. I will just keep my finger cross on this fight. I dont know if pacquiao have a chance of beating De la hoya.

lets see what will really happen...anyway this fight is not a title bout and just for entertainment and money fight that came on the mind of their promotions and producer who are giving both of them due shares for this fight...

I've always watched the fight of Pacquiao even while he is still new in the field. I was able to see his way to stardom and this coming fight with Dela Hoya is the most exciting yet most dreading of them all! I understand that this is a complete mismatch but whatever will be the result, I think Pacquiao already win this: even if he lost, he has money, if he wins, he will be very popular in the boxing world. Come what may, this is a win-win situation for Pacquiao. As his kababayan, all we can do is pray for Pacquiao to have enough strength to win this fight!
