Pacquiao by Split Decision. size won't be much of an issue. if you might recall, in his prime oscar faced another slick southpaw with almost the same physical attributes as pacquiao, then pound for pound #1, Pernell "Sweet Pea" Whitaker, who was around 5'6 or 5'7.

although all three judges scored it for dela hoya by a wide margin, many believe, myself included, that what took place was a highway robbery. it was a close match that could have gone either way, similar to to the Pacquiao-Marquez clashes, and i gave it to whitaker thanks to a late round flash knockdown.

let's also remember that dela hoya had a tendency to fade in the late rounds, which was most apparent in his two fights against shane mosley and in his match versus tito trinidad. manny, on the other hand, usually gets stronger as the fight goes on. i see him rallying towards the end and outworking oscar to take the late rounds and run away the close decision victory.

i hate de la fag but he would win hands down, i dont even think pac could last 5 rounds with a prime trinidad and oscar was winning by a wide margin until he started to coast....

It's DLH for me, some of you nuthuggers have short memories - has was never the quickest boxer in the world but he was arguably one of the finest technical boxers of the last 10 years. He managed to take FMJ to a fairly close decision (which i thought he lost but only by a couple of rounds, i don't know how one judge gave it to him) when he was just at the end of his prime. If he'd been able to pump his jab like he did to so many oppo's before Manny then Pac wouldn't have got near him. This "prime v prime" would have been the physical mismatch that should of happened, ODLH would have simply been too big with too good-a jab. If FMJ had problems with it (who's almost as big as DLH, problems until DLH got tired) then Manny would have been in a whole world of trouble.

i give a PRIME dela hoya the edge... oscar was a good fighter in his prime, wicked left hook,one of the best jabs in the business and the size and height will give him the advantage if he's in excellent shape...


i say OSCAR by UD or late KO.............


On the contrary, Pac vs Dela Hoya at lightweight or super lightweight is a very competetive fight.. Although Oscar was very powerful at this weight, he was having troubles with left handed fighters and Pacquiao on the other hand fights well and defends well against left hook/cross or whatever punches that comes from the left. Pacquiao is weak in defending overhand right and straight hand that is why Marquez gave him the best fight. And to support my claim, Oscar was never big right hand puncher. I go for Pac via close UD. No stoppage because Oscar has one of the best chins in the business.




i beg to disagree,nearly all of oscar's opponents were orthodox fighters.. there are only two southpaw fighters i could think off that gave oscar a lot of trouble.. this are hector camacho and pernell sweet pea whitaker,but the heck, both of this fighters are slick and defensive specialists... and oscar won against both via unanimous decision for the welterweight championship,plus this were natural welterweights, compare to manny who is more of a super featherweight....i really think size will matter between a prime delahoya and a prime pacman...

Oscar has very fast hands back then. But then again,
Pacquiao signs contracts very fast too, even now :lol: :lol:

I'll go with ODH this time. Size will matter in this case.

Its a good thing Pacquiao and Delahoya didn't came out of the same era. Had they meet early on, we wont be seeing such a beating Delahoya suffered last Dec. 08...Because Bobby pacquiao will certainly crush delahoya's balls out! :lol: :lol: :lol:

DLH in his prime beat: 'Sweet Pea' Whitteker, 'Macho' Camacho and Julio Chavez. All three were above age 32, past their best before date and shorter that DLH. Though it was an excitting fight to watch, in retrospect, due to the reduced skills of the aged fighters it wasn't that amazing. The other fighters that I was impressed (fights I watched on PPV) that DLH fought are: Ike Cortey, Tito Trinidad and Fernando Vargas. If Manny Pacquiao was in the same era, the same size as he is now, weight and maturity as a fighter now and fought against a primed DLH (say eight years ago)...then it could be a thrilling bout, certainly better than the showing DLH did on 6 Dec 08. As for who would win...hhmm...we will never know.

nice post.. couldn't have said any better.. we can only surmise the outcome...

hard to tell bro, if the ref allows hattons roughouse thactics i think he will frustrate packy and win by ko, if packy can walk the ring swarming hatton with punches from all angles getting in and out then packy by late ko or decission, i think this is packys real acid test, hatton is a deadly body puncher and hes in his prime...
