    well...

    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.
    BUMP!^

    It was a hands down decision. The only judge that voted for Oscar was obviously biased. lol

    I can't, for the life of me, figure out what that judge was doing. Even Max Kellerman, who I'd love to muzzle, stated that was biggest issue he had is that a judge could have that many rounds for Oscar... just doesn't make sense in any way.

    NEW YORK -- HBO Sports reported today that 2.15 million pay-per-view buys and $120 million in pay-per-view revenue was generated from last Saturday’s mega fight showdown featuring Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The fight was promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in association with MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

    In a fight that set the all-time pay-per-view record by eclipsing the previous mark by a sizable margin of 160,000 buys as well as establishing a new mark for revenue from a pay-per-view telecast, Mayweather scored a split decision victory and captured De La Hoya’s junior middleweight title. The showdown, which featured boxing’s two biggest attractions, produced 1,225,000 buys from cable systems and 925,000 buys from satellite homes throughout the 50 states.

    “De La Hoya vs. Mayweather was a record-setting event from the moment the fight was announced,” said Ross Greenburg, President of HBO Sports. “We are delighted that sports fans recognized the greatness of these two future Hall of Famers and tuned in for their showdown. It’s satisfying to see that boxing still connects with sports fans throughout the country and we are determined to continue to present high-profile fights that capture the public’s imagination.”

    Mayweather, regarded as the sport’s pound-for-pound king, now possesses a spotless 38-0 record. The 30-year-old Grand Rapids, Michigan native now lives in Las Vegas.

    De La Hoya, 34, who has won titles in six weight classes and is the industry’s all-time top pay-per-view performer, has now participated in each of the top six non-heavyweight pay-per view events in history -- including the industry record-setting 2.15 million buys vs. Mayweather; the 1.4 million buys for the Felix Trinidad fight in Sept. 1999; one million buys for the matchup with Bernard Hopkins in September 2004; the Sept. 2003 rematch with Shane Mosley, which generated 950,000 buys; and the Sept. 2002 showdown with Fernando Vargas and the May 2006 encounter with Ricardo Mayorga, both of which registered 935,000 buys.

    The De La Hoya vs. Mayweather junior middleweight championship fight will be replayed this Saturday night, May 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET/ PT & 9:00 p.m CT on HBO.

    The rebroadcast will include a studio show hosted by Jim Lampley and Larry Merchant with new interviews of Mayweather and De La Hoya, plus highlights from the groundbreaking “De La Hoya/Mayweather 24/7” reality series.

    The program will be replayed on HBO2 Sunday, May 13 at 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. and Tuesday, May 15 at 11:30 p.m. Both times are ET/PT.

    I'm much more of an MMA fan, but those are pretty impressive PPV numbers. The top UFC event is still under 1 mil, I think.

    Me either bro. I don't know what fight he was looking at but Mayweather won every single round if I'm not mistaken....if anything, he won all of them (according to the scorecards) except 1 or two AT MOST.

    Actually, anyone that ordered that ****ty fight = PWNED. I watched a stream of it online for free. I would have been pissed had I wasted $55 on that boring worthless pile of a fight. If it werent for that overwhelming support of ESPN and all the other major networks/newspapers hyping this crappy dying sport, they would not have broken any records at all. Fact is, the only coverage UFC has is on Spike, and they sold 1,050,000 pay-per-view buys for UFC 67. This Maywether/De La Hoya even is boxing's last stand, it was hyped as can be for months everywhere a sports fan can look. It was boring, didnt live up to the hype and people wont want to pay $55 next time for an over hyped fight. UFC PPV numbers grew 700% last year, and wait until the Pride/UFC superbowl PPV numbers absolutely shatter every PPV record.

    The PPV numbers seem to suggest that there still is a lot of interest in boxing, but that there needs to be better promotion, matchups, and trustworthiness in the sport.

    CNorris, time to leave this thread and guys don't aggravate him. He makes points that I may agree with sometimes, but in a manner that makes you not want to agree with him.

    Aussie, I'll pretend like you didn't say that.

    And, BTW Jim Lampley who once called MMA barbaric has been arrested for beating up his girlfriend.

    Actually PI, I'm not sure who Lampley is, just saw that on an MMA forum. I casually followed boxing in the 90s, but haven't really gotten into it in a while. This PBM vs. DLH fight got me a little interested again.

    What do you guys think about Kermit Cintron? How good is he? He said he'd fight in MMA if he got a good offer. He has a college wrestling backround, apparantly.

    The twentysomething HBO commentator with a goat is Max Kellerman, a fan of MMA who has rebuked Lampley's disparaging remarks on the same.

    Lampley does'nt know jack about MMA, neither does Larry Merchant, but the latter 's smart enough to keep ignorant opinions to himself.

    Lampley is a douche. Calls MMA a "bar fight" then beats up his girlfriend. Sounds like the only bar fighting going on is in his bedroom.


    "SAN DIEGO - Jim Lampley was sentenced to three years of probation Wednesday after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of violating a restraining order.

    The 57-year-old sports announcer also was ordered to stay away from Candice Sanders, the woman who claimed he attacked her in her Encinitas apartment on New Year's Eve.

    "I received injuries to my head, neck and back from his throwing me against the walls and door," Sanders wrote in her request for a restraining order.

    The 28-year-old Sanders is a former Miss California USA.

    In a statement released by his agent, Lampley said he did not commit a violent act.

    "The thing that I am most guilty of is choosing (the) wrong woman," Lampley said.

    In addition to the stay-away order and probation, Lampley was ordered to enroll in a 52-week domestic violence recovery program, perform 40 hours of volunteer work and pay a fine of nearly $700, Deputy District Attorney Per Hellstrom said.

    Lampley began his broadcasting career with ABC in the mid-1970s. He later worked for CBS, NBC and more recently as a boxing commentator for HBO. He currently appears as himself in the movie "Rocky Balboa."

    You got it. All worthy opinions have been expressed and it seems no matter how many more have yet to be expressed, one person is going to deliver 10 more useless ones to match them so yeah...it's about that time.

    Can I request a moderator to delete this thread please? Thank you!

    P.S. I'll pay shoot 20 dollars to whichever mod bans CNorris for 7 days. We could all use a week off without him

    Hatton anialated Castillo no two ways about it. I think he proved he is worth the big money fights. Its a shame mayweather or de la hoya probably wont get a chance to fight him because or retirement and slightly different weights etc.

    Mayweather is gonna keep fighting...IMO.

    I think his whole retirement thing was a publicity stunt. The guy is a natural born fighter, his pedigre shows that. He'll be back in the ring soon enough.

    the mayweather vs hatton fight could be going ahead!! Hatton has been giving him sh1t to come out of retirement and fight. mayweahters old man who is also his trainer has said if the money is there he will def go for it......lets hope so, i think hatton at least deserves a shot.
