Both Oscar de la Hoya and Floyd Mayweather took part in the mandatory WBC 7-day safety weight check-ins from their respective training camps. Stepping on the scale in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico and overseen by the Puerto Rico Boxing Commission President, Jose Penagaricano, De La Hoya weighed 158 pounds. "I'm ready and eagerly awaiting the sound of the bell." Mayweather weighed in at the Las Vegas offices of Dr. Robert Voy. Dr. Cary Logan witnessed as Mayweather stepped on the scale and weighed 150 pounds. "Nothing left to say. I am in tremendous shape and ready to go."

So Floyd has unofficially lost two pounds in the last 30 days. Oscar has lost 6. I figured Floyd will weigh in at 151 and Oscar at 154.

Weigh ins look pretty solid. Oscar will definitely be the bigger man, but i don't think he'll be able to come close to matching up with Floyds speed or power as well.

I agree with ya, Oscar is not the same fighter he used to be, i'd be surprised if he even wins one round in the whole fight. This fight will certainly go to a decision in favor of Floyd, Oscar will need to be aggressive all fight long and better be in the best shape of his life cause Floyd is always in great shape!

It's going to be a night to remember

I am telling you guys Freddy has a great game plan and Butt head(floyd for you new guys)will be shocked at the speed and power of the left jab the best and strongest in the business. Oscar will time him late in the 6th or 7th and land a clean left hook Floyd will kiss the canvas get up at 7 ot 8 and then Oscar will fifnish him with a ref stoppage ( floyd will cry that it was early!!)any other questions?

You are truly mistaken my friend :) Oscar will time him late in the 6th or 7th and whiff a clean left hook, Floyd will smile and land back to back straight rights with Oscar looking around for who hit him!

When did Oscar suddenly regain all this greatness? Floyd doesnt have to matchup powerwise with DLH, but he's not gonna need to do that. However, he has a little more pop than you give him credit for.

has oscar ever lost it?

id say he's maybe 85%-90% of what he was but thats still a damn good fighter, a lot of guys talk about the hopkins fight being the end of oscar but he was clearly in that fight but was caught with a sickening body shot, mayorga isnt truly elite but is still a very good fighter, a bit of a homerun hitter but he had 2 wins over forrest who in his own right was an a-level guy at that time, oscar was sensational against him. if pbf wins all jokes aside i wont take anything away from him saying oscar was past it because he clearly still has a lot of gas in the tank, a bit inactive the last few years but he's had a lot of quality sparring with the guys from goldenboy ssm-b-hop.

Oscar is still good. But hes not as good as a few years ago obviously. Against a lot of competitors 85to90percent would be enough, but i dont believe thats going to cut it against Mayweather.
