Golden Boy and Pac Man Hit the Golden Gate

New America Media, Video Report Video, Cliff Parker Posted: Oct 06, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO -- On Oct. 4, 2008, "The Golden Boy" Oscar de la Hoya and reigning WBC Lightweight Champion Manny "The Pac Man" Pacquiao were greeted by a crowd of more than 300 Bay Area boxing fans in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, as the two fighters continued a nationwide promotional tour of their non-title bout this coming December.

De la Hoya and Pacquiao are slated to square off on Dec. 6, 2008 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight, which has been dubbed the "Dream Match," and the "biggest event in boxing history," sold out in less than an hour after tickets went on sale, and is expected to draw the largest number of Pay-Per-View customers for any boxing event to date.

Odds are 2 to 1 in favor of de la Hoya.
