Predictions? I'm hoping Oscar gives Mayorga a thorough beating. But I'm not confident it's gonna happen.

Colin -
Mayorga is fearless, tough-as-nails, and apparently has an iron jaw! But he comes across as such a low-life punk that I'm hoping Oscar puts a real hurtin' on him.

Yeah, i have heard that Mayora is like that.

Very vile man but great fighter.

I think they should heavily fine boxers who conduct themselves in that manor cause they are rolemodels who are representing boxing.

I didn't see the fight (I was camping), but apparently Oscar went through Mayorga like a knife through butter! Anybody see it?

I watched the fight 'live'.

It was a fantastic fight.

Mayorga was still talking trash to De La Hoya when the ref brought the fighters together.

Halfway through the 1st Oscar caught Mayorga with a beautiful left hook that floored him.The look Oscar gave Mayorga was a classic.

After that it was only a matter of time before Oscar won and it ended in the 6th with the ref stopping the fight.

Mayorga was totally outclassed. :wink:

I watched it live too and really enjoyed it. I did figure De La Hoya would be a little too clever and classy for Mayorga, but didn't expect it to be that easy. It was the second best fight I've seen this year. The best was the amazing display by Calzaghe against Lacy.
