“The Dream Match” – Let’s just Accept It

Posted by beeshabo on November 17, 2008


In just a little under three weeks, “The Dream Match” becomes a reality, when Pound for Pound Champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao steps into the ring against one of boxing most beloved stars, “The Golden Boy” Oscar De La Hoya, it’s a fight most don’t care too much about, there are plenty of other matches either man can pursue, but there is nothing we can do about it, it’s happening whether we like it or not.

This fight is without a doubt going to be the biggest fight of this year, it may even beat last years success of the snoozer that was De La Hoya/ Mayweather, mainly because of Pacquiao’s fan base, he literally has an entire island behind him, combined with Oscar’s own fame and popularity, this “Dream” match has the potential to be the biggest (money wise) fight in the history of the sport. But even with both combatant’s possessing outstanding draw power and boxing success, most boxing fans don’t care too much about this fight, and rightfully so, it’s the big guy versus the little guy, the old guy versus the young guy, and the list goes on and on, there are so many other fights out there for either man, so, Why this fight?

Well besides the money (Pacquiao will make his career’s biggest payday), it’s a fight EVERYONE will watch, it has “What If” written all over it, I mean, De La Hoya vs Pacquiao, who could’ve imagined, as much as we love to hate it, every single soul protesting against this fight will no doubt be glued to their seat, nervously awaiting the moment that very first bell rings. It’s a fight you would see taking place in a video game, but this is no game, this is real life, and these two will be in that ring together, exchanging punches, so let’s face it, as much as we all claim to hate this fight, we will all be watching. So since we have no choice but to accept that fact that this fight is happening, let’s just accept it, and enjoy it, with Pacquiao being the man sharing the ring with De La Hoya, I highly doubt it will be less than entertaining.

Stay tuned.
