Oscar should be blamed actually for pushing for this fight when he could have fought Margo.

I'm no Oscar***ual but it doesn't take much logic to see Oscar De La Hoya, the same man who stopped Fernando Vargas, Ricardo Mayorga, And Julio Cesar Chavez will do the exact same to Manny Pacquio and if Oscar doesn't win by anything other than KO he damages his legacy irreparably
No matter what the matchup, there is always a bunch of stupid people backing the most unlikliest of outcomes, even it it is to be difficult, and this one is no exception.

Exactly.Misleading thread.Oscar is the favourite with writers,fans and bookies.

Most people rooting for Pac are rooting with their hearts, not their minds. They're not underrating DLH at all. It has more to do with the fact that it would do wonders to Pac's legacy IF ever he upsets DLH. So with that in mind, they root for Pac.

It's Unlikely that a fighter as popular as him could be underrated.

Extremely underrated nowadays. People think Margarito walks right thru him. I don't think so.

Oscar is still very fast and powerful. People saw Forbes hit him a few times and got there panties in a bunch! He also won every single ****ing round in that fight, against a guy who just gave Berto ALOT of trouble. JMM had Pac wobbled....JMM looks like Oscars divided by 2 and has about the same hand speed. Pac is in some serious shit....but he already knows that

Oscar is a fool for dreaming up this fight and making it happen, Pac is a fool for going along with it (well, a fool in every way other than a financial one).

Oscar has lost just about every big fight he has been in.

Glass jaw? He has not lost since his loss to Morales?! Ranked # 2 then # 1 P4P has a glass jaw?! Voted Fighter of the year for 2006 or 07?!

What happens to the rest of the top 10 p4p? Paper jaw?!

JMM ass kissed the canvass four times and PAC is the glass jaw

I know it's hard to concieve that PAC will win but saying he has a glass jaw is rather an insult. Dont be rediculous?!
