Pacquiao vs De la Hoya - The Dream Match
DE LA HOYA VS PACQUIAO ON DECEMBER 6, 2008, MGM GRAND LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
Pacquiao faced Oscar De La Hoya on Saturday, December 6, 2008 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada in a so-called Dream Match. De la Hoya threw in the towel before the start of the 9th round. It was officially a technical knockout. 
Presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank, Inc., the bout was scheduled as a 12-round, non-title fight contested at the 147-pound welterweight limit. Although Pacquiao went into the fight widely recognized as the leading pound-for-pound boxer in the world, some boxing pundits had speculated that 147 pounds could be too far above his natural weight against the larger De La Hoya.
Pacquiao received $15 to 30 million (share of the pay-per-view), plus a guaranteed amount.
Tickets reportedly sold out just hours after they went on sale. The total gate revenues were said to be nearly $17 million dollars. That amount apparently gave the bout the second largest gate revenue in boxing history.
