Some other mountain; Oscar continues his PPV voyage

Amidst a global credit crunch it could prove harder than ever to defend the choices of a multi-millionaire like Oscar DeLaHoya and harder still if he is to assume the role of the big guy in his David and Goliath showdown with Manny Pacquiao. However, for all the criticism his selection of the Filipino piranha, instead of the entirely more imposing challenges of Paul Williams and Antonio Margarito, drew, I for one believe it is a sensible match-up for a fighter who operates outside boxing’s accepted parameters.

Writing for Frank Maloney’s reconstructed, and still improving, website on this thorny issue, I argue it is time the boxing traditionalists accepted the reality Oscar DeLaHoya is a fighter second and a businessman first. Isn’t the fact a fighter has conducted a stellar career, earned millions and remained healthy something to celebrate after all?
