title How Can Haye Not Be Ranked In The Pound-For-Pound List?

By Jim Dower: As much as six division champion Oscar De La Hoya (39-5, 30 KOs) might like for boxing fans to be interested in his December 6th fight with former featherweight Manny Pacquiao (47-3-2, 35 KOs), so far the perspective bout seems to draw out more ridicule and disgust aimed at Oscar more than anything in the way of praise.

That, of course, won’t get in the way of the fight being a huge PPV attraction, one that will likely come close to matching the $120 million PPV that Oscar attracted for his 1997 fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Read the rest of this entry »
