Default Oscar De La Hoya speaks on chances of a Floyd Mayweather Jr Rematch

Oscar De La Hoya speaks on chances of a Floyd Mayweather Jr Rematch


In a recent interview with Jim Jenkins, published in the Sacramento Bee, Oscar De La Hoya, who's company is promoting Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Ricky Hatton on Dec. 8, confirmed that he himself would like to fight twice in 2008. De La Hoya was asked by Jenkins if his plans for 2008 included a rematch against Floyd Mayweather Jr.?

In regards to fighting twice in '08, speaking by phone from Los Angeles, De La Hoya told the publication: "I would like
to fight twice next year, in May and September, opponents to be decided."

Jenkins then probed De La Hoya, asking him if his plans would include a rematch with Mayweather? That question got laughter out of De La Hoya.

In regards to a possible rematch with Mayweather Jr., De la Hoya rated the chance as basically slim, stating: "The only way it would happen is if they let us fight in a phone booth," referencing to Mayweather's hit-and-run tactics.

De La Hoya is also considering going back to welterweight, the same division Mayweather Jr is in. De la Hoya feels the change in weight divisions would better suit him.

"I think welterweight would better suit my style," said De La Hoya, adding: "You have opponents who are bangers, fighters who stay in front of you. I want to leave this sport with fights that people will remember for a long time. It will be interesting to see who is on top in December."

more crap from oscar, he was doing just fine when he had smaller guys live chavez, and sweet pea in front of him. the minute he gets a small guy who fought 71% of his fights at 130 (floyd) in the ring he wants to talk about standing and trading.

where was his bravado against b-hop and trinidad. Oscar is a joke lets see him go to 147 and challenge margarito, williams, and cintron guys who are his size and see him talk about banging.

Deservedly so.

Especially when he makes comments like these. Trinidad-DLH could have been a legendary scrap if DLH fought like he's talking here, but he had no problem employing a hit-n-run style for that entire bout.

Its ok when it suits him.

I don't think he's going back to 147 regardless of what he or Larry Merchant say.

But I hope Oscar is telling the truth when he says he won't fight Floyd again.

Correct, Oscar's running cost him the fight while Floyd cruised to an easy decision

Personally I don't give a shit what excuse he gives as long as he doesn't fight Floyd again. I wouldn't be able to deal with 5 more months of hype leading to a mediocre fight.

He said in another interview that he'll fight the winner of Mayweather/Hatton.

Easy decision?, I don't think so. The fight was close and competitive.

YOu want DLH to challenge them, but if they are mentioned as possible Floyd opponents, you cry "WHat have they done to deserve...".

My god you're a ****in imbecile...
