  • De La Hoya vs Mayweather

    I know there is a boxing thread somewhere out there, but given the fact this is the last big fight in five years, I believe a separate thread should exist. Mods: it will be gone in a week, just let this one play its course out.

    Mayweather (MW) is unquestionably faster than De La Hoya (DLH). However, DLH has faced some of the toughest competition in multiple weight divisions. Meanwhile, MW has been accused of ducking tough bouts before this one. So the question that stands out is this: although MW is more gifted, does DLH's experience give him a true shot at winning?

    Vegas has MW -200 and DLH +160, meaning MW is a considerable favorite.

    Mayweather will win on points, but it won't be a blowout.

    Like him or not, Oscar is a good boxer.

      No one should argue otherwise: DLH is a heck of a fighter. One of the biggest boxers out there today.

          I dont mind MAyweather, but I like DLH better. There are so many storylines leading into this bout. Like Mayweather father was DLH trainer leading up to the fight. Up here, TSN showed a feature on the two training, and it was jokes when Mayweather's uncle/trainer, called Freddy Roach (DLH trainer) and asked him about how the training was going, and then Roach started cutting up Mayweathers uncle asking him to speak english, and that he couldnt hear him, lol. Then hung up on him.

          I cant wait for this fight. Im expecting this to be a GREAT bout. I have such high expectations for this fight. I think it will be great.

          Only 5 days to go!!!

            I don't think so. MW isn't really a power puncher and Oscar isn't as soft as some make him out to be.

            I think this one will go the distance.

                    De La Hoya wins the early rounds, Mayweather closes it out in the end. He'll win by like 3 or 4 rounds.

                      Dont ask me why, but I have a feeling that this fight could be fixed. DLH's last fight, maybe FMJ throws it and joins up with Golden Boy. I dont I get a bad feeling. And please dont flame, among boxing fans on this board, it is well known that i know my stuff so if u flame be prepared to debate.

                        I lost all respect for De La Hoya and boxing in general when I watched DLH win an obviously fixed fight. I can't remember the fight, but it was probably about a year or two ago. It went to scorecards and DLH needed to win it to move onto a big fight that was expected to bring in a ton of cash. He got beat and everybody knew it but they gave him the decision so the next fight could take place.

                            De La Hoya is bigger and stronger than Mayweather. Mayweather is gonna try and knock him out and Oscar is just gonna beat him like a drum.
