With comedian George Lopez emceeing the the spectacular event, over one thousand people showed up to see the ultimate fighters--Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquia--they labeled it The Dream Fight. The event took place on the corners of Whittier Blvd. and Arizona Street where you could see people on roof tops while others lined the streets for hours just to get a glimpse of their favorite fighter or celebrity. With the economic situation being what it is, the sponsors of the event made an announcement stating that they will be sending half of the pay per view payments back to the viewers who purchase the fight. Over 100 media attended the event with VIP's, friends, security, sheriffs and plenty of fire fighters as the heat reached 95 degrees on Whittier Boulevard in East Los Angeles.

    Pacman is the Mexican killer they say,I have givin him his props,but DE La Hoya is the Mexican Boss,General,etc,making it the reason you and your mother will watch the fight.Pacman and his half retarded looking coach Roach should stay professional and not talk about pulling the triger.
