Default De La Hoya vs. Trinidad officially in negociations.

I was hoping I would not see this, but Don King is presently in Puerto Rico meeting with both fighters to discuss terms. This is sad as I hoped Tito would stay retired. He will get whipped no doubt. Check endi.com (spanish) for more info.

I don't know.. Tito might still have enough to be the Oscar that's left today.

It'd do huge numbers even though it'd mean nothing and both guys are way past prime.

Hoya says that if he could change one day in his life, he'd change that day of 1999 when he lost against Tito. He would fight those last three rounds to secure the victory. The man is traumatized because of that controversial loss....I bet he'll train like a monster to beat Tito this time CONVINCINGLY.

Has Tito been in a gym lately, other than the photo op on 24/7?

Good, Hoya can go out with a revenge victory, they can both make a lot of money and Floyd will concentrate on making fights with real challenges.

I don't think this fight will be as one sided as some do.

The last thing a fighter loses is his power. While Oscar can still look extremely sharp in spots, I'm very skeptical about him being able to maintain that throughout the fight.

That alone makes this fight more intriguing now than a couple of years ago.However, it does go completely against Oscar's statements that he will only fight the best. For that reason, I wouldn't be too broken up if he gets himself KO'd. I'm not a big fan of fighter's shamelessly fighting aged/inactive big names because the reward far outweighs the risk. At this stage of their career, this fight does nothing to reverse the way their 1st fight turned out.
