oscar wins this by stoppage that left hook is the best in the business, i still see people righting oscar off i thought they would have learned after he dismantled mayorga.

I think that the golden boy will win by a close ud and floyd will be knocked down in the fight but everybody knows that this is a 3 fight deal.

PBF a little too quick

I'm gonna say Floyd would win a close ud, only because Oscar is a little too inactive (rusty) to contend with Floyd's speed. Floyd's defense would also limit the damage done by Oscar's left hook.

I think if Hopkins could beat Oscar, then Floyd certainly would be able to do likewise, without the knockdown/knockout.

inactivnes could play a part i think oscar has only fought mayorga in the past 2 years but ive read that he's having some real quality sparing with the likes of b-hop, barrera and demarcus hopkins, obviously this is no substitute for a real fight but with these guy's in oscars camp thats real quality.

im not gonna compare mayorga to mayweather because there a league apart but oscar did look the dogs in those 6 rounds.

Definetly Floyd. Oscars my favorite boxer but there is no way he can win. What advantage does he have over Floyd? Not speed, skill, talent, or technique. Maybe power with his left hook but I doubt Oscar could ever catch him with it.

As for "dismantling" Mayorga give me a break. Mayorga was a easy comeback fight for Oscar. Coincedence that Trinidad chose the same fighter to make his comeback out of retirement? I think not. Mayorga is boxing equivelent to a heel in wrestling so beating him would look good and not be very difficult cause he has no skill whatsoever.

Floyd would have to win by decision because Oscars chin is one of the best in boxing and I doubt he could be knocked out. (In the hopkins fight I feel like Oscar stayed down to avoid further punishment. Probably wise or he could of ended up like Trinidad when he fought Hopkins.)

DHL has had a great run. He will go down as a all time great, but Pretty Boy Floyd is way too slick for him.

Floyd in a some what close UD

Oscar-Floyd is on for May 5!
By Karl Freitag
Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather have reached an agreement to fight on May 5. The fight was finalized today. The bout will be promoted by Golden Boy Promotions. "We are not going to comment what the deal is," Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer told Fightnews.com. "It's a fair deal and if the pay-per-view hits the numbers which we anticipate it will, it will be new record payday for both guys.....It's going to be big. It's clearly the biggest fight in boxing and I think it's the kind of fight which will transcend and which will clearly capture the interest of the American public and the American sports fans, because it is Mayweather pound-for-pound number one fighter in the sport against Oscar, the most popular and biggest name in the sport. Actually I was looking today at my trophy case, Oscar's trophy case in our office and I was standing in front of one of the belts which was a ring belt that had 'Oscar De La Hoya, pound for pound' on it, and it was 1997. So here we are ten years later and the question is, can he do it again?"

Oscar should win this fight if he takes a page out of Sugar Ray's book and use that exp to hang and then explode in the later rounds.....I just hope the rust falls off early

Go Oscar

I like Floyd
I like Oscar

I hate it that Floyd is such a defensive minded fighter (I don’t blame him but from a fans point of view) I HATE IT
So that being the case I have to root for Oscar I actually want Floyd to be KO’d so that we can see more Floyd fights.
I feel that if he was to loose he would not retire.

To beat Floyd I think it takes a fighter like Hatton.
A relentless attack from start to finish.
A dirty fighter like B-hop lots of head bunts and elbows
A fighter like JCChaves Sr. to hit on the hips like he hit sweep pee.

I can't see Floyd loosing to a boxer.

If Oscar is sparring with the fighters that he promotes then Floyd is really in seriuos s***. sparring with B-Hop and Winky and then with Mosely to defend against speed. Wow Floyd is in for a real fight I dont think he will be that pretty when this one is over.

Couldnt have said it better myself. Exactly how I see it playing out as well.

You Can Say All You Want About How Oscar Can Use Those Elite Boxers As Sparring Partners But When It Comes To Being In The Ring With Floyd Its A Whole Different Ball Game. Much Faster,defensive Skills, Everything. It'll Be Close But Floyd Will Come Out Victorious. And If They Do A 2nd And 3rd Fight It Better Have Some Brawls If Not There Just There For The Money.

there will be brawls in the fight. Oscar will make Floyd fight his fight. Floyd wont be picking his punches too much in this fight.

I dunno, don't under estimate the golden boy, I agree with most of you that floyd is faster, better defence etc. but i think oscar is full of suprises and that left hook is still pretty deadly and quick maybe even equal to PBF speed and defence, whose training oscar anyways? is it floyd Sr. cause that would be a bonus

gotta go with oscar. big left hook could land in 12 reounds and ko floyd. Floyd has never been in a fight as big as this but hoya has. floyd will try and outbox him but hoya can also make fights his fights. Hoya will work the jab but also use combinations that will rock floyd. Come the 6th round hoya could land a left hook which sends floyd to the canvas. floyd gets a standing 8 count and carrys on. come the 11 round hoyas power will show and some how will ko floyd. 11 round kayo
