Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr,
- 05-06-2007, 07:24 AM
I saw the fight and Big Casino summed it up well. I see a rematch in the future. By the way, where was that "Massacre" Mayweather talked about? I think once or twice it could have been a decent brawl, but there was definently too much thought involved. Mayweather took him with speed and accuracy. De La Hoya would have mangled him if Mayweather would have just squared up with him. He was constantly turned to the side guarding his midsection.
Personally, I like to watch Crocop throw that invisible left foot. Now that's entertainment. What was that? Why can't I hear out of my right ear? Why are all of these people sideways? Where am I?

mayweather fought to win. he did it well. I didn't understand where that split decision came from...
either way, it was a decent fight. people get pissed that there wasnt a knock down/out but it was a well fought fight...
And I'm up 200 bucks either way!!!

Can't handle the death of boxing
I want that hour of my life back. It not only didnt live up to the hype, it was so boring it was nail pouneded into the coffin for the sport of boxing. The sport deserves to get ripped, and I enjoy doing it until the day it becomes entertaining or dies off. These fighters shouldnt be making tens of millions. Its just pathetic. The show they put on wasnt worth them making $100 a piece.
MMA => <= Boxing

I personally like MMA...
I love boxing...
The fight last night was good...De La Hoya definitely got beat, that one judge was an idiot...
I've seen plenty of top tier MMA fights that are nothing but two guys laying on one another...

Okay then...how about watching someone get punched 200+ times during the course of that hour...
# 1 MMA guys can't put up with that, # 2, I personally find it entertaining as hell.

Boxing is one dimensional and boring. Its a boring sport, and I dont want to see someone take 200 punches to the head. Its not entertaining or one bit dynamic.
05-06-2007, 08:58 PM
I would agree with the point about the lighter gloves and the need to modify one's stance and tactics to deal with other threats, disagree on the excitement of boxing. There's still dynamic excitement in boxing at the lower weights, the talent's pooled down there, the heavier weights aren't what thy used to be, one can hope it's cyclical and the heavier weights will return to fun form.
Baseball, now that's boring, Boxing is and always will be great, but not always, and neither is MMA, IMO.

I have all the respect in the world for past champs like Ali and Larry Holmes. I love boxing movies. Cinderella Man is one of my favorite movies. I also loved Rocky. I just dont enjoy watching an hour long fight. And before you accuse me of having a short attention span and not enjoying the strategy of sports, I'm a huge baseball fan. I have the attention span to watch a baseball game 2-3 nights a week.
When it comes down to it, my hostility towards boxing comes from neglect the media gives to MMA. The day ESPN, CBS etc give MMA the credit it deserves I will not hate on boxing. MMA is not given fair coverage in the media. I dont get why ESPN is so scared of MMA. There is no doubt it is the present and future of combat sports.

You got issues...theres obviously no reasoning with you. You have your opinions, no one agree with them, but hey, I have a buttload of opinions that no one shares with me either. True, boxing can be boring at times, but so can every sport.
I think this is more of an agree to disagree kind of situation.
And to whomever it was that said baseball was boring too a fe posts ago...I was completely with you until you decided to bash that greated sport ever played!!!
haha, i'm unsubscribed...take care.
05-07-2007, 03:01 PM
That be me. Hate it, bores me comatose. We'll agree to disagree amiably, unlike another we know of, the greatest sport is the one with 22 guys scheming and slamming on every play - Football. I readily admit to a professional bias here.
05-07-2007, 03:10 PM
it all depends on how you look at it.
05-07-2007, 03:25 PM
There's ~135-165 offensive plays per football game, we were fast , not that fast.
As you say, a matter of perspective.I'm also big and sweaty and irritable, I melt into madness in the summer sun if I'm stuck in the stands and I'm not even going to address the tedious agony known as NASCAR. No sacred cows at the House of Drone.

Different strokes for different folks...
I like all sports...being good enough at anything that you can make a million bucks impresses me...

What are the objectives of a forum, dannyboy?
The exchange of information AND opinions, it's called discussion.
PumpingIron posted on this thread specifically about this fight, and as this discussion was trailing off, he rendered an opinion on sports in general,as did I and Not Big Enuf. That's how it's done.
What did you do? You rebuked his opinion with your opinion on his, "pot calling the kettle black", think about this specifically and in general how Internet Forums operate.

Don't worry, I like you all.

But back on topic.....theres talk of uk boxer Ricky Hatton taking on either Oscar or Pretty boy (provided he doesn't retire) as long as Hatton beats Castillo in their upcoming fight. They would have to lose a few pounds to make weight but it would be a great fight to see.
05-09-2007, 06:40 AM
Ricky Hatton has only left England for his last two fights...granted he won both, but I don't see him being much of a match for either opponent.

oh i agree that the cash definitely lies in the US but boxing doesn't have many guys that can draw a huge crowd and big money like Mayweather and Oscar, but Hatton still gets a few mill per fight and Kostya Zu is stinking rich as well. The big money fights are no where to be seen. Besides last wkend.
Its a shame the USA isn't good at any sports that the rest of the world plays..........besides maybe basketball.

Serena is ahead in points and money this season...by a lot too...
Shes the smaller and more feminine of the sisters.
05-09-2007, 08:57 AM
And to anyone following this thread and complaining about DeLahoya/Mayweather....
In a fight, do you usually let people hit you? Mayweather is defensive for a reason.
The outcome of the fight:
--Mayweather landed TWICE as many punches
--Mayweather landed TWICE as many POWER punches
--Mayweather was TWICE as accurate
Game over. There's absolutely no argument for Oscar.
