Manny Pacquiao Wins On 8th Round

Manny Pacquiao Wins On 8th RoundI woke this morning around 10 A.M. I immediately went online since I remembered the "Dream Match" fight of Manny Pacquiao and Oscar de la Hoya. I checked my post about the FREE live streaming and checked if it is working. Some are working though but some are not working. My guy housemates are eager to watch it and was fortunate that the link that he gave was working just in time for the match of Pacquiao and de la Hoya.

It just surprise me that the fight was so quick. I am used to watching it on Philippine television with so much TV commercial that it would take more than two hours. Correct me if wrong. From the scores of the judges and the number of punches thrown by Pacquiao, it looked like a guaranteed win for Manny. On the other hand Oscar de la Hoya looked tired even on the 3rd round. He looked old and weak for his age. He's only 35 by the way.

At the end of round 8, Oscar de la Hoya gave up to continue the 9th round. His team have decided to give up since this is not a title match and it would be a disaster to be knocked down if he continues. It was just sad to look at Oscar de la Hoya with this one eye closed and looking frail.

Congratulations again to the Filipino pride, Manny Pacquiao!
