YouTube - STEVE FORBES TRAINING FOR OSCAR DE LA HOYA

Check out former super featherweight champion Steve Forbes work the mitts with trainer Roger Mayweather as he begins training for his upcoming clash with six-division world champion Oscar De La Hoya.




No disrespect to Forbes but I think he's gonna get owned.

PS : It looks like he's training in jeans...

It's funny how he's being used by both the Mayweather camp as well as Oscar at the same time.

Does anyone know the exact weight they are fighting in? Also, how much is he getting paid for this? This would crush my dignity.

Why is he even training? I wouldnt even waist my time if I know I was going to get my aced kicked no matter how hard I trained. I'd just take that check and retire a former featherweight champ.

Wether he trains or not he's gonna get that check. He might as well try to look good and give his all in the ring.

Cuz he's a fighter and he's getting paid. What you expect him to do? Lay down?

Oscar is got no dignity, he oviously did not want to take any chances what so ever, at the very least I hope he carries the man a few rounds to help him save face...

If Forbes wins the DLH fight with floyd will fall apart. Unless floyd is really willing to fight a guy comming from such embarassing loss.

As long as that money is there he'll still fight him. But it'll look like the money is still there but PPV number would be in the tolet. So he wouldnt make anywhere near the amount he made last fight.

That would be sad. Floyd gotta have some self-respect and honor not to take the fight, because that would be lame and extremely disappoting

NOOOOOOOO He is already living up to his name by taking the fight in the first place. And forbes can dance around and fustrate Oscar to a SD or something. Thats not out the question.
