De La Hoya Schools Mayorga!

In a 6th round TKO, Oscar De La Hoya defeated Ricardo Mayorga to win the WBC Middleweight Championship. After a vicious promotion, where Mayorga taunted De La Hoya with vile vitriol, the new champ dropped Mayorga twice and gave him a boxing lesson. There is no doubt that De La Hoya is the #1 boxing attraction. I'm hoping a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. sees the light of day! Although De La Hoya showed a little rust, he landed an impressive 44% of his punches. Mayorga could only bow down after the brutal beating he was given.

Good Stuff!!!

Good fight. I definitely expected a K.O. but not from Dela Hoya!

I doubt he'll fight Mayweather Jr. Dela Hoya's coach is Mayweather Sr. and he publicly said that he won't let that happen.

Then again, how much gap lies between money and blood. It would be a good fight for sure.
