how to watch pacquiao vs de la hoya and other boxing ppv free online

 

Last December 7, 2009, we are edited this article from its original "Pacquaio vs. Marquez" title, as it is also applicable to pacman versus golden boy's fight.  Today, one year after the original article, we once again re-label and re-edit the article to fit the upcoming Pacquiao versus Hatton fight for May 2, 2009.

As with Oscar De La Hoya's fight arrangement disagreement over the purse split, (De La Hoya wanted 70-30, Pacquiao wanted 40), the Pacquiao Hatton fight almost did not push through with a similar disagreement over the purse.  Both parties stressed that each had the bigger crowd draw from their home country, thus each demanding a bigger cut from the PPV.

Top Rank and Golden Boy thought they had a deal for the fight weeks ago until Pacquiao insisted on a better percentage of the revenue. After back and forth, Pacquiao missed a deadline to sign and the fight was called off. That resulted in a frenetic few days spent trying to revive the deal.

In the end, they worked it out last week with Pacquiao due to receive 52 percent to Hatton's 48 percent, according to Arum.

Allegedly, Pacquiao's press release reason as to why they went on with the fight was over a bet and a couple of bottles of beers with a friend.  Sure, why would anyone want to pass on a $12 million purse anyway.  

Pacquiao, who will earn a minimum of $12 million, will be fighting in his fourth different weight class in four fights. He won the junior lightweight championship last March via split decision against Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao then moved up to lightweight, where he knocked out David Diaz in the ninth round to claim a title, before jumping up to welterweight, where he destroyed De La Hoya in eight one-sided rounds on Dec. 6.

Now, Pacquiao (48-3-2, 36 KOs) will be dropping to the 140-pound junior welterweight division to challenge Hatton (45-1, 32 KOs), who has ruled the weight class since stopping Kostya Tszyu to win the title in June 2005. Tickets for the bout go on sale Friday through Ticketmaster with prices at $1,000, $750, $500, $350 and $150.

HOW TO WATCH THE FIGHT ON INTERNET STREAMING

In comparing the two, SopCast it seems has less US channels compared to TVU Player. On TVU I was able to watch ESPN, HBO, CNN, and many different category of of various international channels. There are some notable regular sports channels which includes CCTV5, a Chinese channel.
You can download the free softwares here: Sopcast and TVU. In order to Watch Watch Pacquiao vs Marquez Rematch Result you must have channels that broadcast Setanta Sports or HBO PPV, so I suggest to visiting Television P2P forums such as MYP2P or LiveFooty for any Pacquiao vs Marquez offerings.
