Junior middleweights Oscar De La Hoya (38-5, 30 KOs) and Steve Forbes (33-5, 9 KOs) showed why they were world champions as "The Golden Boy" won a twelve round unanimous decision over Forbes on Saturday night at the Home Depot Center Soccer Stadium in Carson, California. Both boxers boxed at an extremely high technical level, but Oscar was simply too fast, too strong, too skilled, just too "everything" in virtually every round as he compiled a 119-109, 119-109, 120-108 over the game, but outgunned Forbes. Next up for De La Hoya is a September rematch with Floyd Mayweather.

I agree if you need a poll to this fight there is something wrong. "2 Pound" will last 2 rounds if he is lucky. This fight is a joke and if DLH is not careful the end of his carrer could look weak. After his fight with Mayweather is he planning on fighting Gomez. THIS FIGHT IS A JOKE. HBO should leave it up to VS. to televise this sub-par fight.

I hope there is a good undercard fight, hatton vs malignaggi would be a good undercard fight.
looks like hatton is planning on fighting may 24. he started with 22 possible opponents who contacted his camp and now says he is down to 4. as far as the dlh forbes match-up, it's obvious oscar really doesn't want to jepordize his scheduled rematch with Mayweather by taking a fight he may actually have a shot at losing.

Why even comment on this fight. Its simple if Oscar wins and looks good it'll give him the confidence to fight Mr. P4P even better this time around but if he loses or looks bad then that fight will be scrapped.
