Crap! Pacman Won!

It's sad day in Philippine history for me. God bless this country!


Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao stopped Oscar de la Hoya Saturday, defying a disadvantage in size with a brutally dominant performance in their welterweight showdown.

Pacquiao's speed, power, and precision were too much for De la Hoya, whose left eye was swelling shut as he declined to come out for the ninth round. With the technical knockout, Pacquiao improved to 48-3 with two drawn and 36 wins inside the distance.

Pacquiao, the reigning World Boxing Council lightweight champion, moved up two weight classes to take the lucrative bout with De la Hoya, a 10-time world champion in six different weight classes who fell to 39-6 with 30 knockouts.
