Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya
Freddie Roach predicted Oscar De La Hoya wouldn't be able to pull the trigger against Manny Pacquiao. Turns out he was right. Pacquiao dominated De La Hoya for eight one-sided rounds on Saturday. Rafael | Analysis | Recap | Undercard | Watch

Pacquiao was getting hammered by Juan Manuel Marquez's left jabs in their clashes. Now he's facing the left-handed firepower of a man three weight divisions bigger than JMM. Oscar TKO 10.

It isn't just size but also a style matchup for Pacquiao. De La Hoya is all wrong for Pacquiao. Unless the Golden Boy has declined seriously, which is possible, I'll go with Oscar by TKO.

A lot of folks think this is a De La Hoya blowout because of his size advantage. I don't buy that. I think it will be a competitive fight, but I also think Oscar will get the job done via a midround TKO.
