I think that we can all agree... If Pac is able to make that big a step up in weight and beat a fighter like ODLH (I know he's getting old but in my opinion the size difference still makes it pretty special) then he is going to gain a lot.
Oscar on the other hand, if victorious... is really only going to gain the purse he gets paid (in my opinion anyway... how ever skilled I think Pac is just too small). If he loses to pac all it's going to do is slightly hurt his legacy but it's not going to stop him being a big draw/house hold name and I think he knows that he's not going to fight for much longer if at all anyway so he won't be losing any opportunities or positions etc.
I don't really have much of an interest in this fight, if any... it stank when it was rumoured and stinks even more now that it's actually happening.
That's what's bothering me... something is just off about all of it. I repsect ODLH as a fighter and a man but (these are just random musings running through my head, I'm not making an opinion, just fishing for thoughts from you)
I wouldn't be surprised if this has already been said (a few 100 times I don't read here much)... but when somebody who owns the majority of a promotions company fights one of it's stars you have to wonder what his motives are.
Financially he probably benefits more in the long run if Pac wins than if he does. Pac's got a lot of rep amongst boxing fans but how much bigger a draw does a win over a 5 time champion/celebrity (lets be honest) at a higher weight make him?...
