Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr,
Who do you think is going to come out victorious? The fight is scheduled for May 5th (Cinco de Mayo). I'm rooting for Mayweather Jr.

Oscar surprised me in his most recent bout. However, he will go out on his back.

I think this is an easy descision, depending on dela hoya it could be a great fight. I voted oscar to give him some karma, but floyd is the obvious favorite.

Mayweather is such an amazing fighter, and anyone who hasn't seen him fight, I recommend getting a few buddies together and watching this pay per view because he says he's retiring afterwards (win lose or draw) and that really might happen.
The only problem with mayweather is the time he dominate the sport was in it's major decline. He has never fought anyone who could compete at his level and he is a plain old d*ckhead who knows how good he is.
De La Hoya is too old to match up. I'm calling it a KO/TKO in the 5-6 rounds....

I think pretty boy Floyd will put the shoeshine on Oscar. Oscar has a lot of heart but I think he cant overcome Floyd's skills. His hand speed and head movement are amazing I love to watch a really fluent fighter get into his flow and pick people apart. He imposes his will on other boxers and just makes them want to quit.

Any time DeLaHoya steps into the ring he has a chance. I'm praying that he catches him early and dictates the tempo. I cant stand Mayweather but his skills are amazing. Unfortunately I think Oscar is in over his head this time, but I'm hoping he proves everyone wrong. It would be the crowning achievment of a brilliant career.

I can't remember which fight it was exactly but I remember I saw a fight once a few years ago in which Oscar was running around the ring the WHOLE time. It was disgraceful and he looked like a pretty big panzy unfortunately. Hopefully he won't do that again seeing how that was the last fight I ever watched of his.

Probably with Trinidad...
03-24-2007 03:05 PM
Was it with Trinidad? I believe so...either way. He looked like a panzy. I'll never forget he did that.

Here's the scoop.
Oscar has 3 rounds to knock him out. By that time, Floyd will have figured out DeLaHoya and will dominate the rest of the fight. Oh, and by no means will those three rounds be easy... but they are the only 3 rounds Oscar will have. After that, it's show time and Floyd will dominate him the rest of the way.
PrettyBoy Floyd is known for his unmatched speed/quickness and herculian stamina, but his best attribute is his brain. Floyd goes in with a gameplan after studying each fighter, then slowly picks his way through the first few rounds and figures out each fighter. At that point, he effectively analyzes the gameplan, what he can do against the other fighter, and picks him apart for the rest of the fight. I've never seen a fighter adapt and customize a gameplan on the fly like Floyd. By round 4 of every fight, the tide always tilts towards Floyd and there's no turning back.
Oscar has a couple rounds to do his damage or he'll lose, period. Oscar was an amazing, blessed fighter, but I just don't see him standing up to PBF, even in his prime. I look forward to a great fight.

That's one hell of an analysis. Sounds right on the money though

A great example was Zab Judah. Mayweather knew he was fast, but you can't gage that until you into the ring. Judah fought very competitively the first 3 rouns, then Mayweather turned on the switch and absolutely dominated the rest of the way. Incredible.

Mayweather is at his peak right now, but De la Hoya is the best fighter he's ever gone against. It should be a good fight, but I think mayweather wins by a few rounds in decision.

What about aurturo gatti?
04-01-2007 05:11 PM
What about him? He's a good fighter but that's about it. Mayweather annihilated him in one of the most one-sided fights ever. Gatti literally couldn't even throw a punch, let alone land one.

I hope De La Hoya wins, but unfortunately it is not likely. Mayweather runs his mouth too much. He should keep his mouth shut when he doesn't know what he's talking about. He had some very harsh things to say about MMA fighters. I'd love for him to back up his talk and fight MMA, he would get smashed. I will say if he were to train for MMA for a few years he would probably be damn good, as talented as he is. Unfortunately mainstream MMA doesn't have a division for a guy that small.

Yeah that was BS. He just looked stupid. Boxing's cool, but completely one-dimensional compared to MMA.

I enjoy them both. But nowadays there isn't as many good athletes in boxing as there are in MMA. Well athletes and personalities. Mayweather is one of the few left that is worth watching.
Fights in boxing have been so lopsided today, and there hasn't been a superfight or a *****ry recently and that has really detracted from the sport. Don King, IMO killed it.

Why do you say Don King killed it PI?
