Filipino boxing superstar Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao crushed Oscar “The Golden Boy” de la Hoya in “The Dream Match” at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada Saturday (Sunday in the Philippines).  

Mexican American De la Hoya, a 10-time world champion in six different weight classes,  refused to come out of his corner after he got a flurry of punches from Pacquiao during the eight round — a surrender pundits say signals the end of The Golden Boy’s stellar boxing career.

Pacquiao, touted as the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world, battered De la Hoya around the ring for eight rounds, leaving his left eye swollen shut and prompting his team to take him to a hospital for precautionary tests afterwards.
