Hoya vs. Pacquiao was well worth the watch. Pacquiao dominated round after round with stunning speed and agility. I felt like I was watching Pacquiao work a punching bag. Hoya was a gentleman during the interview at the end.

It wasn't even close. Manny had a clean sweep of the rounds before Oscar quit.

pacquiao was wicked fast - hard to believe so many people called him the underdog going into this match. It happened all so cleanly.

Had it running as I was working. I ordered it at the last second. I have always loved paq man, and honestly, de La Hoya is only doing these fights for money. This is like when he was totally outclassed by Mayweather. It's just getting sad.

paqman landed some big ones, and was a lot flashier than Floyd. I'd say both were equal rapings of dlHoya, but Paqman was conscious of making it more exciting.
