Oscar De La Hoya may no longer have a hand in the inner working of Mayweather’s finances but he doesn know enough to confidently state that Floyd-Manny will break PPV sale records.
Oscar is also right when it comes to the dynamics of this fight. The pressure isn’t on Mayweather, Manny has to use his aggressive style to take this victory from Floyd. It’s going to take a substantial amount of punches landed by Manny to eek out a decision, while Floyd merely has to avoid being hit to win rounds in the minds of the judges.
In boxing perception is reality.
