The “dream match” between Oscar de la Hoya and Manny Pacquiao unravels today at the MGM Grand Garden Arena — and we’re all looking for commentary, predictions and live coverage!
If you’re looking for a roundup of some compelling articles and predictions as well as a tip on how to get live coverage, this is a good place to start.
So-called live coverage in the Philippines will be by GMA Network, including affiliate radio station DZBB. But since we know the meaning of “live” during Pacquiao’s fights, we’d rather look for alternatives.
Live streaming of the De La Hoya-Pacquiao fight seems to be possible and I hope it pushes through. A similar effort is taking place here.
Major online news sites in the Philippines have also come up with microsites for the match:
