Just watched the Del la Hoya fight lol

He gave up in like the 9th round or something, threw in the towel. So 9/10 boxing goes to a decision and when there is about to be an actual knockout, they throw in the towel between rounds. LuL

I forgot how much boxing fails and how boring it is, tonight reminded me why the sport is dieing.

Wow you really are a sad MMA fan. That was an absolutely amazing fight for Pac man. Oscar is a good fighter (past prime even) and gave mayweather Jr some trouble. Pac man is pure heart, fire and high level skill. Oscar has never quit before. He was not supposed to even lose this. He got dominated and was humbled into quitting. The under card fights were exciting with a lot of knockouts. This was a great night for boxing. Too bad there are fan boys like you that just cant APPRECIATE good fighting regardless of style.

That was actually a great night of fighting. Don't listen to Dana White's marketing BS too much, you'll end up being very biased on some subjects (like this one).

Damn...in back to back months, my two favorite boxers lost. **** boxing...not really but man this fight soured my night. It's worse than after Roy Jones' fight. I grew up on boxing, so I won't abandon it.

BTW, it was not boring.

I know what you mean; RJJ was my/is my fav of all time. In his prime he was pure art. I wish he retired years ago. I wanted either DLH to win or have Pac man win like he did and bring some excitement to the sport. I think he has a good chance of enticing mayweather JR out of retirement. There is no way Oscar aged THAT fast from 2007 to 2008 and Pac Man just boxed beautifully. The way he threw his str8 left lead is reminiscent of a straight right lead by mayweather. I agreed taht Pac should probably not stay 147 as I see Cotto, Paul Williams or Margarito giving him major problems..but then again after this fight I will never doubt Pac out of any fight.

Yeah, I heard the commentators mention that Pac's performance might draw Mayweather back to compete for the p4p best title. That would be awesome imo.

Pac's straight left seemed to confuse De La Hoya and he was just to fast. I saw a couple instances where Pac circled Oscar, and Oscar was looking where he used to be. I know Pac Man is a hell of a fighter, but I wonder what was up with Oscar. He looked old, run-down, and uninspired to me. It's a shame when a legend gets embarrassed like that. I was embarrassed for him.

It's also too bad that many discredit RJJ for not fighting the type of competition as older generation fighters and for ducking Benn (when he didn't). He was the f'n man.

Thats just it, he is old, run down, and a shitty fighter now. When greatness passes it always hard to watch. I will catch the fight when HBO puts it out and I cannot wait.
