Weigh In and Odds

For the fight tonight between Oscar De la Hoya and Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquaio weighed in at 142. This is good, because he can retain some of his speed and power that may not have translated well at the much higher weight.

760x316_10_wh

De La Hoya weighed in at 145, which may not be good. DLH hasn’t weighed this little since 2000, and suggests he may have overtrained.
However, he’ll gain back 5 – 10 pounds today, so the weight differential may be only 10 pounds come fight time.

At this writing, the book is:

De La Hoya: -165
Pacquaio: +135
