Manny is going to come in and apply non stop pressure from the opening bell. He'll have that bouncing going on that he does and will throw 3-5 punch constant combos to Oscar. I think there will be some Hearns/Hagler type action going on in this fight but Oscar is just too big and too strong for him and will knock him out.

Default Hoya

I agree! Too big, too strong is Hoya at 147. For 2 rounds it will be a crazy war but Hoya will hold up fine to Pacmans attacks.

I look forward to this one, but given that Manny likes to brawl, the size difference becomes a big factor.

I think Manny makes this a closer fight than some are expecting. Oscar is at (-170) and PacMan is at (+140).

I bet PacMan cuts a lot to make 130-135, so the jump to 147 probably won't be as big of a deal as many are making. I bet Manny walks around at 145 or so and I bet Oscar will come into the fight about 155.

I don't think Oscar can knock PacMan out and I don't think PacMan can knock him out either. I'm going w/De la Hoya by decision, but I think Manny puts up a great fight...one that I'll see a week later on the replay.

let's not forget, pacman's punches will cut you up (bleed).

look at pacquiao's fight vs diaz, and the amount of cuts diaz had on his face because of the accuracy of pacquiao's punches.

dlh will have to keep throwing the jab to keep pacquiao away.
