Pacquiao pummels De La Hoya into submission after 8th rounds

The Dream Match between two boxing superstars turned out to be a mismatch. But the pundits proved to be wrong as to who will be outmatched.

In a spectacular display of speed and punching power, Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao dominated the Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya right from the opening bell of the first round up until the eight round. Before the start of the 9th round, De La Hoya accepted his fate and embraced Pacquiao as a sign of his surrender.

Throughout the fight, Pacquiao displayed superb speed and boxing combinations that turned the future Hall of Famers De La Hoya like an old sitting duck to his punches.

Obviously, age and bringing down his weight took its toll on Oscar as he was never able to do anything against the younger Pacquiao.

The win was a further testament that Pacquiao is really the number one pound for pound fighter at the moment.
