Oscar "Golden Boy" Dela Hoya
stopped his "Dream Match" with Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao at the end of the 8th round of their scheduled 12-round fight.

Manny Pacquiao scored a 1-sided TKO over Oscar De La Hoya.

A crowd, estimated at 16,000 or less, filled the venue at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Manny Pacquiao won his last 8 fights, including 2 knockout victories over Erik Morales, and one each against fierce rivals Marco Antonio Barrera and Juan Manuel Marquez. De la Hoya has only fought 4 times over the last four years, losing twice.

During the weigh-in (Manny Pacquiao at an unbelievable 142 pounds since Freddie Roach had wanted him to weigh in at 145, and De la Hoya at 145 pounds), they faced each other after tipping the scales, but no pushing & shoving.

The odds to this fight had gone up and down over the last 5 days in Vegas. For Manny Pacquiao they’d gone from plus 155 to plus 140, then plus 135 to plus 125, and plus 165 Friday morning to plus 160 the evening before the fight.

It meant that a $100 bet on Pacquiao (47-3-2 with 35 KOs) won $160. The latest odds on De la Hoya (39-5-0 with 30 KOs) showed that a bet of $190 only won $100.

Both fighters went for the knockout.

Manny Pacquiao's coach Freddie Roach had predicted a 9th round stoppage by Manny Pacquiao, and Oscar De la Hoya countered by saying he’d knock Manny Pacquiao out inside five rounds.

Manny Pacquiao is the first Filipino and Asian boxer to win four world titles in different weight divisions. De La Hoya has won ten world titles in 6 different weight classes. Manny Pacquiao is considered the greatest boxer in the planet today – pound for pound.
