Oscar de la Hoya was no longer the "Golden Boy" when he fought Manny Pacquiao. Oscar was a has-been and he wanted merely another huge payday before he officially retired. And he did retire about his loss to Manny Pacquiao. In fact the event should have been called a "fixed fight," as Oscar's Golden Boy Promotions promoted it, knowing that De la Hoya no longer had what it takes to stage a decent bout. In fact I wrote that De la Hoya should not have paid his purse. To view again my article, Yes, the De la Hoya-Pacquiao Fight Was a Farce. It Was Only About Money & Gullible Fans Paid for It Boxing has always been controversial amidst reports of Mob-influenced outcomes, especially in Lost (sic) Vegas. A Los Angeles Times columnist said that Manny Pacquiao's last fight was a "con job," as per this report, L.A. Times’ Bill Dwyre Says “Pacquiao, Hatton ‘News’ Is a Con Job” (As Updated W/ Predictions) We can never be sure that the Mob is not using Manny to stage "fixed fights." If Pacquiao demolishes easily Cotto, then perhaps the Mob is just executing its plans for a bigger payday, the coming huge bout between Floyd Mayweather, Jr., and Pacquiao. After all, is it not true that Bob Arum manages and promotes both Pacquiao and Cotto? What boxing manager will permit two of his wards to destroy each other, unless . . . Does it smell now of a fixed fight? Perhaps the November 14th bout will not be worth the greenbacks needed in buying the Pay-TV coverage. I will not certainly pay good money to see it.
