Floyd Mayweather Jr. Defeats De La Hoya in Las Vegas!!!

Wussup Everybody! This was the Biggest fight in at least 6 years and was probably the most profitable fight in a long time. All the biggest stars turned out for this fight. Chances are if you can name a star, he/she was probably there to see it live in Las Vegas! This was the big one that I was personally waiting for. I waited a whole year for this and finally it was here, and everything that happened in the fight was exactly how I saw it going lie!

The fight started with Mayweather (my favorite boxer) came into the ring along side (my favorite rapper) 50 cent rappin a new track. He came out dressed in Mexican colors and a big Mexican hat on top of his head, something that his uncle/trainer Roger Mayweather used to do back in his championship days when they called him the Mexican fighter killer. De la Hoya came out as usual to a mexican song and looking a little scared in my opinion.

Anyway, Mayweather started out pretty quickly and was using his classic style of hit and run...hit, hit, move away. It was working well in the first round. The second round is where De La Hoya proved he can let his hands go and be somewhat dominant with the jab. Mayweather scored decently in this round but the crowd was almost 90% De La Hoya fans, so anytime Oscar looked busy, the crowd would scream! Mayweather won the next 2 rounds as he was scoring at will. Oscar started to look a bit sloppy after he abandon his jab. Mayweather had the best punch stats as he landed more punches while throwing less. De La Hoya started to use the jab again in the 5th and 8th and won those rounds. After the 8th round, Mayweather won every other round in my opinion. He was simply dominating Oscar just as he did with Baldomir and Judah. Oscar didn't have the stamina for the final 4 rounds and he simply couldn't catch Mayweather or answer back to any of his punches. Overall it was a good fight, but it ended just how I predicted with a split-decision win for Floyd Jr. Many say it didn't live up to the firework-type of fight, but I knew how both fighters fight and this is exactly how it should have ended.

There are already talks of a rematch....

This fight was a bit disappointing considering this super fight was suppose to save boxing and all that. Mayweather should fight Hatton next. I don't believe he will retire just yet.
