Boxing betting odds have De La Hoya about a 2-1 favorite over Pacquiao.  The fight is expected to be extremely popular around the world and with gamblers that bet on boxing. There is no doubt that De La Hoya is a popular fighter that attracts boxing betting action but Pacquaio is no slouch either.  The entire country of the Phillipines will be watching this fight as Pacquaio has unprecedented popularity there.

De La Hoya does have some advantages in this fight and that is why he is favored in boxing betting. He will have an advantage in power, height and reach according to boxing betting numbers. He will not have the advantage though in speed, strategy or endurance according to boxing betting experts.  Those edges go to Pacquiao. The harder worker is definitely Pacquaio. "What I have done in my career," Pacquaio said, "is because of my hard work and my belief in God."  This boxing betting match is definitely the biggest one of Pacquiao’s career. "Twenty years from now, 30, 40 years, I want my name to be at the top level of boxing history," Pacquiao says. "That’s why it’s really important for me to win this fight. It’s the biggest fight of my career. The point of this fight is to do something that people will never forget."
