The Dream Match between Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and Oscar "The Golden Boy" Dela Hoya is finally over. Pacman wins when The Golden Boy resist to continue the fight in the 9th round. Have you watch the fight? Where did you watch the exciting event, television, internet, pay-pay-view, cell phone or at the theater? Me and my family just stayed at home and watched the boxing match in our TV. How about you?

We actually listened first over the radio which is much more updated than the telecast. We know already that Pacman won the fight before Channel 7 started airing so when we were watching the game, the excitement was no longer as intense. But still it is more enjoyable to watch the exact exchange of punches by the fighters on TV and the big victory of Pacman. He is a great fighter. He again raked millions of dollars for that fight. How lucky could he be!

Hi neildc, I am not a boxing fan, as I am a female I just don't like to watch men knocking six bells out of each other, but I do understand the its a man's sports so I'm glad yoou enjoyed it. Hugs. Tamara

I just listened to the live coverage in the radio and then waited for the delayed telecast in the television. My father and brother watched in a pay-per-view broadcast. I was surprised to hear that Oscar De La Hoya had resigned after the 8th round but when I saw his face on the television I somehow understand him. He was really beaten and his handsome face has been distorted, a first in his 44 fights I think. I also watched the replay on CS9. . I am currently looking for online videos because I want to watch it with commentators from different country so I can hear what they have to say to the fight.

I have watched the fight on a delayed telecast in a local television station. My husband watched it live via satellite in a gymnasium here in Manila. I was not able to go with him although there were still tickets available because I have to take care of our one month old son. I was very happy with what Manny Pacquiao's did during the match-up. During the first few rounds, I knew that he will win since Oscar Dela Hoya seemed to be so weak to counter Manny's punching.

Hi there Neil! Yes, I watched the match with my husband in our bedroom, over GMA 7. I really wish they had a live telecast on Solar Sports. Nevertheless, I am really proud and thankful that Pacquiao won the match.
