De La Hoya: Mayweather Beats Pacquiao, By Knockout!

By Miguel Rivera

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya is fully confident that Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs) will defeat Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) if the two boxers ever collide in a welterweight WBO/WBC unification. De La Hoya's company is trying to make a fight between the two superstars for May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The date and the venue have already been set aside, with Mayweather directing De La Hoya's company to make a fight with Pacquiao.

There have been talks about a possible fourth fight between Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, who lost a close majority decision to the Filipino boxer on November 12th. De La Hoya had actually scored the fight in favor of Marquez "by a point or two." When it comes to Mayweather, De La Hoya doesn't expect a distance fight. He predicts a Mayweather victory by knockout.

"It was a great fight, it was a very close fight [between Pacquiao and Marquez]. Juan Manuel Marquez is a great fighter, but Mayweather has the style to beat Pacquiao, and he will do it by knockout," De La Hoya said.
