Manny Pacquiao as Part of Boxing History


When Manny Pacquiao was about to fight Golden Boy Oscar Dela Hoya just last year, the Filipino ring icon was thought to be facing one of the most daunting moment of his boxing career.

Manny Pacquiao was already a loser in the eyes of most boxing analysts, even before the Dela Hoya-Pacquiao fight was finalized. But he proved them wrong. The Filipino boxing hero demolished Dela Hoya, a six-time world champion, in the eighth round.

Then it came for Pacquiao’s encounter with Ricky Hatton, whose boxing record was desecrated by Floyd Mayweather Jr., a likely next opponent of Pacquiao. Hatton was unbeaten, but before that fight. He was unbeaten within the 140 lbs weight until Pacquiao abolished Hatton’s untarnished record at 140 pounds.

Many individuals believed then that in fighting the Briton Hatton, Pacquiao was facing the very best test of his professional boxing career. Again, Pacquiao proved the critics wrong. He humiliated Hatton within the second round with their fight. Hatton has never been exactly the same again, after that devastating defeat.

A year ago the Philippines’ boxing legend attempt to take steps which had been never done before: winning the championship belt in seven weight divisions. Pacquiao was immortalized in history books as he stopped Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas.

Watch Pacquiao vs Bradley this coming April 12th and dont miss their fight.
