Pretty Boy wants Golden Boy!
Saturday, March 11 2006
By Big Joe Miranda
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has Zab Judah in front of him on April 8 at Thomas
& Mack Center in Las Vegas, but he has the Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya
on his mind. "He's still one of the best fighters out there pound for
pound," Floyd told reporters Thursday in Los Angeles. "I have nothing
but respect for this guy. But as of right now, I'm focused on Zab Judah.
Once we get past him, my team will go back to the drawing board and see
what they talk about." If it happens, the fight between Floyd and Oscar
would take place in September. In the meantime Mayweather can't look
past Judah, who is coming off a humiliating defeat at the hands of 10:1
underdog Carlos Baldomir. Judah still has his IBF title due to a
technicality (Baldomir didn't pay his IBF sanctioning fee), and a win
over #1 P4P Mayweather would spell redemption for the Brooklynite.

I would love to see this fight. I think that prime Oscar has the boxing
skills to give Floyd trouble. He has a good left jab, fast hands, and a
smart boxing style. His jab and his movement would keep Floyd at bay
early, and help Oscar bank some rounds. The Oscar who fought Pernell
Whitaker and Felix Trinidad would be more competitive with Mayweather
than anyone he has ever faced, with the possible exception of Jose Luis
Castillo in their first fight.

But Floyd will not be facing the late 90's welterweight Oscar. He will
be fighting an older businessman who bares little resemblance to the
young conqueror of the 1990's.

Having said that,I expect the first five rounds of this fight to be
close. Oscar will throw the jab and look to hook off the jab when he
can. But Floyd will pick off DelaHoya's hooks with his right glove.

I look for Mayweather to start breaking Oscar down in the middle
rounds, and for DLH to become frustrated at his inabiity to match hand
speed with Floyd. I don't see a knockout, but I do see Floyd winning
this fight 8 rounds to 4 or nine rounds to three.

It won't go the distance....oscar has been out of it for too long and won't
have the speed, power, stamina, or reflexes to even hold the fight close to
floyd. I think the fight will go to the 8th round, and only because floyd
will give him respect early on before really letting his gloves fly and
hitting him at will.

I can almost see this fight now... Floyd injuring his hand in the 5th-6th
round and ODLH coasting to a UD in 12.

No thanks.

Even if Mayweather Jr. does hurt his hands, Oscar won't cruise to an easy
points win. Floyd makes it too tough for fighters to make it easy.

It might be a close fight, but I'll take Mayweather Jr. by late TKO or
(117-111).

Scar TKO

All predicated upon Oscar getting by Mayorga intact.

De La Hoya will get by the wild, but limited Mayorga.

Oscar will be in great shape and simply has better hand speed and stamina
than Ricardo.

Will it be a walk in the park for The Golden Boy? Nope, but he will win in
pretty comfortable fashion IMO.

I'll take De La Hoya TKO 10 over the durable and battle tested Mayorga.

Why is everyone so sure Floyd would beat Oscar?  We don't even know yet
if Mayweather is a legit welterweight, let alone a Jr. Middleweight.
Lets see how well he does against Judah first, and we all know one
should never look past thier opponent, like FM seems to be doing.

But I don't want to see that fight. I want to see Mayweather stay at a
division and actually win a real championship fight there and defend at
least a couple of times.  That is what a real champion does, not keep
moving up in weight and picking and choosing a belt-holder who isn't
even the 2nd best in his division.  Mayweather has fallen prey to an
attitude we have seen others fall to--he seems to think he has attained
some perminent championship status that is beyond whatever division he
is in, thus any fight he decides to take on is in his mind a
championship fight.  You got to keep proving yourself the best IMO.

I'm not 100% sure that Mayweather will beat De La Hoya, but will pick him if
they fight. Mayweather is faster, younger, and fresher than the Golden Boy.

Mayweather is not looking past Judah, the majority of the boxing community
and experts are simply bacause on paper, he should win this fight based on
Judah last poor performance and Mayweather current p4p #1 status.

 I want to see Mayweather stay at a

Ummm, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is all champion and his p4p status can't be
questioned. Don't worry, if they fight, Mayweather Jr. will defeat Miguel
Cotto or Ricky Hatton. Zab Judah is still a somewhat formidable opponent who
at his "A" level boxing game, brings something uniqe to the table. I'm
curious, as most are, as to just how GOOD Floyd will look against a speedy
boxer like Zan Judah.

 >You got to keep proving yourself the best IMO.

Do you want me to name just some of the elite fighters Floyd Mayweather Jr.
has beaten to be the best IMO? here is just a couple to keep in mind:

Mayweather Jr. toppled the likes of : Genaro Hernandez, Jose Luis Castillo
(twice), Diego Corrales, Sharmba Mitchell, Victoriano Sosa, Jesus Chavez,
Angel Manfredy, and Goyo Vargas.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. took significant risks against Corrales and Castillo,
so simply put, his heart and courage can't be questioned. He's even taking a
small risk by fighting a wild card fighter like Zab Judah because Floyd is
supposed to win and anything less than a good performance will have critics
and Mayweather haters jumping all the way down his throat.

I will say that while Mayweather Jr. is already a Hall of Fame caliber
boxer, that he does have to beat a few more top notch fighters if he wants
to truly rank amongst the guys like = Willie Pep, Carlos Monzon, and Bob
Foster. And if Mayweather beats the likes of Hatton, Margarito, and Mosley,
maybe he can mentioned in the same breath as Ali or Sugar ray Robinson.
Mayweather Jr. has lots more work to do, just let the man have some time to
get it done.

Scar TKO

I'm honestly shocked that ODLH is still fighting. I think he's WAY past
his prime and has no real fire to drive him, beyond making money and
having fun...not that there's anything wrong with that.
If an over-the-hill ODLH beat Mayweather I'd really be shocked. Then
again...I've been shocked before. I remember this powerful boxer named
Jeff Lacy and.....

I think Oscar is so fast that he will make the early rounds with Mayweather
somewhat close, but after round 4, Mayweather goes into cruise control to a
comfortable points win.

2-3 years ago is a different story, this would be a classic because of the
inexperience of Mayweather at a higher weight class.

Mayweather is p4p #1 right now, there is no way I can place anybody higher
than the undefeated phenom.

I agree. However, he will get by the wild, but limited Mayorga when they
fight. The Golden days seem to be over for Oscar unless he can somehow upset
the likes of a Winky Wright or Jermaine Taylor. I would love to see De La
Hoya fight the winner of Wright-Taylor just to see the performance of Oscar
at such a high level while he's past his prime.

If they do fight, I'd take:

Wright W12(116-112) over De La Hoya
Taylor TKO 11 over De La Hoya

Both close fights on points, but until Oscar proves he's back at that elite
level, it's hard to pick him a winner against either Wright or Taylor.
