Money Defies Logic - Seven Years & 25 Pounds Ago

Seven years and 25 pounds ago, he was at the undercard of the sports biggest star who was then fighting Javier Castillejo. It was the night when Manny Pacquiao announced his arrival to the US boxing scene by dispatching south African Lehlo Ledwaba with powerful, accurate and lightning fast combinations to win the IBF super-bantamweight title via six-round stoppage. That stellar win by the fiery Filipino knock-out artist was even magnified many times more by the amount of exposure he got for fighting that same night with his boyhood hero: the legendary Oscar De La Hoya.

Now, the Filipino speedster who was introduced to the world that night with his mispronounced name is set to fight the same guy who helped him banner his name and boost his marketability across the boxing world and business conglomerates. He was then a super-bantam; Oscar then was already comfortably fighting at the light-middleweight division. The 154 lb weight limit. It was six divisions north of Pacquiao’s 122 lb division. To even think of the possibility of a match-up between the two at that time was downright idiotic, if not complete lunacy.

Pacquiao is a bloated lightweight? Steward thought his body did not show any signs of fat. He noticed he seemed to be built for lightweight.

bloated lightweight in a sense that pac started at 107. a bloated lightweight who was fighting like a welter is not an insult

natural lightweight are guys like casa, campbell, roberto duran.

I've seen fights before which defies logic.

Watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14n8kKyIxD8
A natural welter vs. a natural lt. heavy fighting on catch weight.

It's boxing folks. Anything can happen.
