I have been a boxing fan since 2005 (9th grade) and I've never seen a fight so hyped as Mayweather-DLH.

After destroying Mayorga, 35-year old De la Hoya was a top contender at 154. Maywaether was the recent 147 champion. Superstar vs. Wannabe Superstar. The fight was not so great, but it had an aura of magnificence.

floyd-dlh
dlh-pac
dlh-hopkins
floyd-hatton
pac-cotto
pac-hatton
mosley-floyd
dlh-mosley
mosley-margarito i think was pretty big even though it wasn't on ppv. but they had more people in that building than any other time.

although i was very hyped for cotto-mosley and cotto-margarito 1.

I believe that you can pretty much statistically prove that it is Mayweather/De La Hoya.

No option comes close to Floyd/DLH. First 24/7 and all made it a can't miss. Especially with Floyd's daddy problems being exposed on 24/7 XD

In Britain, Hatton-May was huge. But overall got to be De La Hoya-Mayweather. Proof is in the buyrates.

I don't think I've ever seen a fight as hyped as Hatton vs Mayweather over here, it was being talked about even by non boxing fans.
