Juan Manuel Marquez vs Joel Casamayor September 13 2008 @ MGM Grand Garden Arena Las Vegas

The newly crowned Ring Magazine World Lightweight Champion, Juan Manuel Marquez TKO's former Ring Magazine World Lightweight Champion Joel Casamayor in the 11th round on Saturday, September 13, 2008 at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Juan Manuel Marquez, a three time world champion won his debut in lighweight against Joel Casamayor via knockout in the late 11th round. Marquez went on the attack in the final minute of the 11th, first flooring Casamayor with a right hand to the chin. Marquez was relentless after that, landing several big blows before a glassy-eyed Casamayor went down for good on consecutive right hands with about 7 seconds left.

Joel Casamayor a Barcelona Olympic gold medalist holds none of the major title belts, but has beaten both the late Corrales and Nate Campbell, who holds the other three 135-pound title belts.

Marquez (49-4-1, 36 KOs) moved up to lightweight in hopes of landing a third bout with Manny Pacquiao after going 0-1-1 against the Filipino pound-for-pound king. Marquez proved the extra five pounds didn't bother him in a comprehensive win over Casamayor (36-4-1), the 37-year-old Cuban champion who has unofficially ruled the division since beating Diego Corrales two years ago.

De la Hoya to pay $3M per pound if he fails to make weight at 147 pounds

The penalty for failing to meet the 147 welterweight weight limit wil be $3 million for every pound. This agreement is non beneficial to Manny because Oscar fight in this division. We should expect De La Hoya to met the weight limit of 147 during weigh-in because he is a professional regardless being a non title bout. Both fighters agreed to use 8 ounce gloves in the 12 round bout this coming December 6 2008 in MGM Grand Las Vegas.

De La Hoya, of Mexican heritage, was raised in East Los Angeles and won an Olympic gold medal for the United States. Pacquio, from the Philippines is the most exciting boxer and the current pound for pound king in boxing.

Manny Pacquaio vs Oscar De La Hoya bout on December 6 2008 @ MGM Grand Hotel Garden In Las Vegas

The Manny Pacquiao and Oscar De La hoya bout will be on December 2006. It will be held at the MGM Grand Hotel Garden in Las Vegas. The pay-per-view will be available on HBO.
Earlier Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank had announced that negotiations for the much-anticipated fight will not happen because Schaefer and De La Hoya wanted a 70-30% split of receipts, which would include a projected 2-million-plus pay-per-view buys. Arum and Pacquiao called the deal was off. Finally ,De La Hoya agreed to drop his percentage of the take in a Pacquiao bout to a two-thirds/one-third arrangement.

De La Hoya, 35, years old (Six-division champion) with a record of 39-5 with 30 knockouts coming into the fight. Pacquiao, 29 years old (five divison champion)will come to the fight with a record of 47-3-2, with 35 knockouts.

Is this gonna break the previous pay per view record set by Oscar De La Hoya? The largest pay-per-view fight in boxing history was the 2007 match between De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr., won by the now-retired Mayweather. That drew 2.4 million buys. De La Hoya previously was involved in the largest non-heavyweight pay-per-view fight when he suffered his first loss, in 1999, against Felix Trinidad. Will just have to wait and see.
