Congratulation PACMAN

I know it's late but Im sending my CONGRATULATION TO PACMAN.What Manny Pacquiao did on December 6 will go down in history as one of the greatest performances of the decade. To waltz up two weight classes and not only beat, but methodically dismantle and outclass boxing’s "Golden Boy," Oscar De La Hoya is an incredible feat. Combined with his previous accomplishments in lower weight classes and Pac-Man has to be one of the, if not the most dangerous fighter.

Why would anyone want to fight this man? Well actually, there are quite a few reasons. Pacquiao is the consensus pound-for-pound best fighter in the world and if anyone were to beat him they could stake a great claim to that intangible yet much-sought-after title.

Also, Pacquiao has become one of the sport’s true "mega-draws." The man has become more than just a sports star in his native Philippines; he’s now a bonafide Filipino Icon. And after wins against over Erik Morales, Marco Antonio Barrera, and De La Hoya, he’s on the brink of global stardom. Fighting him is a nice pay day for any opponent.

Pacquiao is now established into of the strongest weight divisions in boxing, lightweight and welterweight. The amount of world-class pugilists in these weights is bound to cause congestion, and some people can very easily get forgotten about. Enter Pacquiao, with a "name" like Manny’s an opponent could propel themselves into the title picture with a respectable, competitive loss and even join the division’s elite with a win..
