With Freddie Roach in his corner, the “Pac-Man” Manny Pacquiao completely embarrassed Oscar De La Hoya in a welterweight bout tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.
Round after round, the pride of the Phillipines out-punched and out-moved the much slower De La Hoya. Pacquiao chopped De La Hoya apart with lightning fast combinations and a right hand that found it’s mark all night long at will, nearly swelling shut the right eye of the Golden Boy.
De La Hoya barely survived round seven and it was all he could do to stay standing. After the round, the ref told him if he kept taking shots like that he would have to stop the fight. Oscar’s cornermen implored him to fight back and get out of the way of Pacquiao’s onslaught.
