Pacquiao-De La Hoya chronicles: The bomb and the salt which is which?

There are different ways in making a formula the simple sodium or Na can make a bomb when mixed with a hypochlorite but sodium can also turn out to be a simple salt when mixed with chlorine.
The Manny Pacquiao-Oscar De La Hoya dream fight will culminate on Dec.6 and both fighters with their respective camps have carefully designed the perfect formula for winning. Manny Pacquiao with his ever reliable coach Freddie Roach has hired the services of the 27 year old Rashad Holloway as his sparring partner and adding up lightweight amateur standout Amir Khan. Both fighters stands 5-10 up and so far everything turned out smoothly on Manny’s camp. Oscar who had to trim down to 147 is likely to make weight with his thin framed structure. Oscar is relying on power punchers like Victor Ortiz and Edwin Valero. Manny has adapted the plyometric system to maintain his speed and power while gaining weight. Their now targeting the rib section and was intense on the mitts for 12 rounds which Freddie was seen catching his breath and massaging his hands after.
Oscar is now trained by renowned Mexican legend Nacho Beristain. Oscar has to work in neutralizing Pacquiao’s speed and the fact that he doesn’t take Pacquiao lightly is an indication that the Golden Boy knows what he’s is up to. Hiring of former hall of fame trainer Angelo Dundee as his consultant can be promising for Oscar but it can also be conflicting with both trainers having different opinions and approach coming into the fight.
With barely a month to go before the fight the believed mismatch is slowly fading into existence as Pacquiao leveled the playing field as his progress in the welterweight is quite promising.
Oscar will be the heavy favorite coming into this fight and I’m sure his gunning for a knockout and one punch can change the entire scenario. Oscar doesn’t need to hire two trainers but he knows the importance of this fight maybe both geniuses could make the perfect plan for Manny. We never know what happens on Dec.6 but there are just two answers the bomb and the simple salt. Now which is which?
