Manny Pacquiao “masarap lumaban nang dehado ka September 17, 2008

Manny Pacquiao’s wife has said that she initially did not want her husband to fight Oscar de la Hoya because the Mexican-American obviously has the height advantage.

“De la Hoya is much bigger than him and I told him [if it] is possible for [him] to fight someone else first and not de la Hoya [at] this time,” Jinkee Pacquiao told sports analyst Ronnie Nathanielsz.

Jinkee, however, said that Pacquiao already made the decision and she had no choice but to support him. Besides, she said Pacquiao is confident of his chances.

Boxrec.com lists de la Hoya at 5′ 10 1/2″ while Pacquiao stands four inches lower.

Last weekend, Pacquiao reiterated that he remains confident against de la Hoya.

“Ako, kaya laging malakas ang loob ko, laging positive ang iniisip ko lagi, na lagi akong mananalo dahil nandiyan ang mga tao sa likod ko, na naninwala, lalong lalo na ‘yung mga fans ko na laging sumusuporta,” he said before leaving for the United States for his training.

Pacquiao added that he relishes being the underdog since this would help him strive more for the victory.

“Alam mo mas masarap lumaban nang dehado ka,” he said.

I’m afraid that manny pacquiao’s too small for de la hoya But seing Pacquiao’s recent fights, it seems that he can take punches and recover quickly.I’m sure he can take de lahoya’s punches, the only question for de la hoya was ,can he catch Pacquiao? or can he take Pacquiao’s punches?is he ready for Pacquiao’s superb speed and agility? all remains to be seen. Pacquiao can run away from delahoya first to sixth rounds,in seventh (his grandpa) de la hoya will be exhausted, from there pacquiao can take him toe to toe. Go Pacman!!!!
