Oscar Found Out That If You Play With Fire You Do Get Burnt… Really Torched.

It looks like the days of Oscar hand picking his opponents for a big event and pay pay are finally over. Last Saturday night in a fight touted as mismatch Manny Pacquiao proved everyone wrong while beating Oscar’s ass into obvious retirement.

This fight was seen as a joke to many experts and even team De La Hoya. They obviously didn’t take Manny serious enough and totally mis judged what Pacquiao could do.

I though coming in Manny would rise to the occasion and perform spectacularly. I didn’t think he’d dominate Oscar that easy though. I mean it was EASY for Manny. He kicked Oscar’s ass from pillar to post.

Oscar was finally taught the lesson that if you want to be a part time fighter and not take boxing serious enough by being active before taking on a beast like Manny you get embarrassed.

It was obvious coming into this fight that Manny was the real fighter. The size factor was the only question mark and Manny proved the adage of it’s not the size of the dog in the fight but the fight in the dog very true.

Ironically though Manny was heavier than Oscar going into the ring. The speed, movement, and defense Manny displayed was spectacular. He upped his game big time. Yes it was a one sided fight but Manny made it that way and kept it that way until the end. That’s how good he has become.

That’s what special fighters do. Manny has done what Oscar was never able to do and that’s dominate in a big fight. That’s why when Manny retires he’ll be looked at as the better and more accomplished fighter. Manny has taken more risks and beat better fighters than Oscar. Manny takes risks because he’s a fighter and now a multi multi millionaire as well.

He’s had a Henry Armstrong like year and the sky is the limit as a proposed Hatton fight nears. Yes Manny is P4P #1, yes he’ll be a hall of famer, and yes he proved with last Saturday nights performance that he’s a throw back fighter.

The scary thing is that Manny hasn’t even peaked yet! The best seems yet to come. While Oscar’s act and charade as an elite fighter is finally over.

– Big props to Freddie who devised and had Manny follow a brilliant fight plan. This bout was sweet revenge for Freddie and it couldn’t have happened to a better trainer.

– Thanks to Bob Arum for listening to Larry Merchant’s idea of this fight and having the faith in Freddie Roach when Freddie confirmed that Manny could do it.

– Of course thanks to Manny for proving all these fucking moronic experts wrong who called this fight a mismatch in favor of Oscar. It’s fighters like Manny and of course Bernard Hopkins who continue to prove how little these experts do know of boxing.

My Late Prediction For Pacquiao-De La Hoya.

From reading my last post here on my blog and my latest post on the elite Q/A under Olympic sports you guys obviously know who I want to win. I really think Manny can do it too.

Lets remember that Oscar hasn’t fought frequent enough and against solid opposition to be really sharp tonight. That’s what’s going to hurt him against Manny who’s been very active against awesome opposition. I mean fighters like Marquez who is amazingly skilled and everything that Oscar isn’t pound for pound.

Oscar should have a few movements with his size advantage but the fight will change when he’s tired. Manny can go all night and he’s VERY durable. That’ll make the difference along with his movement and speed. I think his power will surprise Oscar and we’ll soon see.

Manny by close decision… Because they’re fighting in Oscar’s town… Vegas.

Enjoy the fight!

The Pacquiao- De La Hoya Promotion Should Be Titled The Fighter Vs. The Fraud

Let me ask you guys something. How did you like hearing Oscar regurgitate the same old shit he has his whole career during Pacquiao- De La Hoya 24/7? Are you sold on it? Do you believe his twisted hype? Do you believe Dundee can add anything or has made Oscar better? What about Nacho for that matter? After all wasn’t Oscar SOOOO elated that Nacho was training him and saying that Nacho is the weapon that’ll help him beat Manny yeeeet he brings in Dundee?

Oscar is anything but a real fighter and hasn’t been for quite a few years now. Why does he fight then? He’s established his promotional firm as the soon to be juggernaut promotional company of boxing.

Oscar wants to have his cake in boxing and eat it too. But at last he’s fighting a REAL fighter who loves to fight, can bring the fight, and will bring the fight for the whole 12 rounds if it lasts that long.

Thomas Gerbasi couldn’t be more right and I couldn’t agree with him more in his article here that’s on maxboxing.com http://maxboxing.com/Gerbasi/Gerbasi120208.asp

Don’t be turned off and believe the hype of this fight being a mismatch. Don’t believe misconception that size conquers will and skill. I mean you had to know who the REAL fighter was in Pacquiao-De La Hoya 24/7! Manny is real fighter in this fight and that’s why you should tune in.

Although tis fight isn’t for any title nor is their any big stakes at line… You may very well indeed watch and learn that you don’t fuck with fighters who take this game serious. Yeah, Manny Pac is a nasty little mutherfucker who likes to make big $$$ and still fight hard. A mismatch was never in his mind. Only the next opponent he has too beat.

Maybe this will be the fight that finally lets Oscar know that he needs to stay his ass out of the ring as it’s NO place for part time fighters.

You may very well see in this fight that size is a good tool but only one factor. Quality of recent world class tough as hell opposition means more pound for pound and being severely battle tested going into a big fight trumps many factors.

I’m not a hater of Oscar as much as it seems. I’m a hater of frauds and that’s what he is if he or anyone thinks he’s still a world class fighter that demands the lions share of the $$, hype, attention, and respect for being a part time fighter that hasn’t beaten anyone GREAT since Vargas.

I’m ending my rant and telling you to watch the fight! Manny Pac is one of the last great millionaire fighters left.
