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.

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.

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.

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.

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 rivalry recently and that has really detracted from the sport. Don King, IMO killed it.

But he influenced the federations to such an extent that the fights were not as good as they could have been. Great fighters should fight great fights, not bums...
Also, I personally believe that he fixed a sh*tload of fights.
04-23-2007, 08:42 AM
The winner of this fight was/is due to fight the Welsh dude Joe Calzaghe right? He would floor both of them anyway.
04-23-2007, 08:54 AM
and i believe you are wrong...
mayweahter has already stated win/lose/draw that he is retiring...
but i see that as a Roy Jones Jr. move...retire for a while then try and come back and not be anywhere near as good as you were.

Chances are you've never watched him fight. the guy is unbeaten in a stack of fights against respectable opposition. He might look like a skinny white guy but he would put up a damn good fight against Mayweather. Got to give credit where credits due..............
04-23-2007, 10:21 AM
First off, he fights super Middleweight...mayweahter and de la hoya fight welter...
Thats like 20 lbs...

Mayweather always talks about going up in weight classes, and that's what he's doing with this fight, but 20lbs is a lot in boxing...
04-26-2007, 10:33 AM
Back in 2003 maybe watched De La Hoya and __I forget his name. After the fight he tested positive for steroids. I think the fight was stopped or it was a KO. watched it on payperview.
I havnt ever seen Mayweather fight so I will pick the winner if I see the fight. Good idea on getting a few buddies together to order it. May the 5th Ocsar had been recently hitting the weights. his arms seemed to have gotten bigger than the last fight in saw around 2003. he could use some chest , upper chest, but he looks like he may have more power then 2003 or whatever year it was. He foght a spanish fellow I beleive.Young guy

Thats who it was Fernando Vargus and winny. De la hoya still beat him and Vargus was younger, and more ripped. Vargus was dancing around and De was giving mostly power shots then out of no-where, almost like the Ali and Foreman fight , De out of no where came with speed that wasnt expected.That when the fight was stopped or a knockout. Cant remember
Two days prior to the weigh in Vargus gained or lost, one or the other, like thirteen lbs

In his prime, De La Hoya wins due to his tremendous skill,heart,determination and speed. But age is speeds' worst enemy..
Today, PBF wins simply because he is very similar to De La Hoya when he was younger. And is IN his prime.
Common opponent Arturo Gatti. Both pretty much erased him so it will be a fight.

De La Hoya's heart and determination are just a media biproduct. He knows how to work a crowd and make himself look like a good guy. I'm not saying that he isn't, but he is put on such a pedistal. I think Mayweather has much more determination in ths fight. He is moving up in weight and thats the major difference.

There is only a 4 year age difference there. Hoya has a reach advantage. Hoya has 5 more fights under his belt, which translate into one win and those 4 loses.
Mayweather is at his peak. Hoya is just about to come off of that plateau. Hoya has fought more accomplished fighters than mayweather, but has lost to msot of them.
I still can't find any reason to pick against the Pretty Boy.

JIm Braddock beat Max Bear in a total underdog fight. Where theres a will theres a way..this fight will show who is more hungry. De la hoyas gonna get paid so thats no thing to him, but could still be hungry for unknown reasons.
Mayweather could be hungry for whatever reason. @
I will decide on the day on the contest who I choose to win by lookign at there body language, reading them, like a book=)
In the Vargus, De la hoya fight I was for De but in this fight it could change , the day of the fight determines it
