I'll just cut and past my topic.

I was just over in Union Station for lunch (in DC) and I heard this huge commotion.  I look up and its the Golden Boy Oscar De la Hoya and Pretty Boy Floyd Maywether, having a press conference for their upcoming fight.

It was pretty damn awesome, watching the trash talking and the whole circus.  Oscar seemed a little more laid back while Floyd was kinda being a jerk, and making a scene while Oscar spoke.  They they got in a mini pissing match, but these guys probably do this in every town they go to.

Ooops, I made a repeat topic.  Go discuss this here http://hudlinentertainment.com/smf/index.php?topic=1145.0

No problem, the two threads are now merged.

Oscar need to stick w/ continuing to build his production company and make his $$$$$$ outside of the ring as a boxing promoter instead of getting back in the ring.  He can issue in a new era as the top boxing promoter in the industry.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for Oscar.He doesn't have to fight Floyd and he didn't have to fight B.Hop...but he has.He's got enormous cojones,and the skillz to go along with it.Hey...is FLOYD SR. going to train Oscar for this fight? If he is...then Oscar has the best opportunity and the best personnel to fight and beat FLOYD,if he ever will.This is his best chance.If he doesn't,then he won't under any other circumstance,either.

But make no mistake: Oscar has the speed to hit Floyd,the punch to hurt Floyd,and a chin that I seriously doubt that Floyd can dent to any real degree.Floyd's aces are his unbelievable laser-like speed,his tremendous defensive skill,and his nearly flawless technical boxing ability.However,the public (and hopefully the egos of the fighters) demand a FIGHT,not skillful technical boxing display.They and even I want both fighters to really FIGHT,to mix it up.To put the pressure on the other and genuinely try to knock the other out.If they both come out with this intention,then this will be a fight worth the money.

And as for Oscar doing promotions...maad crazy respect.I think he should do both as much as he can and as long as he has the will and the skill to.I really want to see other faces besides Don King and Bob Arum.Younger faces whom don't make a art form of raping the fighters.

When did Mayweather become such a dick?  He's fallen into that ol' typical Black athlete stereotype where he's the best thing since pockets on pants, and everyone's a bitch, and he'll beat yo' ass, and 50Cent is backing up everything he says.  I was pulling for him (see earlier post) but after watching HBO's 24/7 I hope he get's his ass laid out just like Mayorga did, talking all that sh*t.  What happen to being humble or at least being colorful like Ali (he knew he'd give you a whipping but it was said with style, flair, and taste).  I dunno.  Anyone watch the show?  Anyone feel the same...or is it just me?

I feel the same way.  That exactly how Floyd acted during the press conference I saw.  Oscar was being doing his thing, giving respect but not talking trash, when Floyd got in his face and started mocking him.  It annoyed me.

Ain't that the truth.

I understand some grandstanding but what I witnessed was overboard--straight up buffoonery

LAS VEGAS -- After three months of verbal sparring, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Oscar De La Hoya are just about ready to shut up and fight.

Boxing's best pound-for-pound fighter and its most popular champion said little to spark controversy or antagonize each other Wednesday at the largest media gathering before their fight for De La Hoya's WBC 154-pound title Saturday night.

"I think I'm out of words," De La Hoya said at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. "There really isn't much more to say. There's only one thing left to talk about, and that's the result."

That hasn't been the case during the colorful buildup to fight week. The innovative promotions for boxing's most anticipated fight in a half-decade included a widely praised HBO reality show, popular videos distributed on YouTube and an all-out blitz on every other media format.

After Mayweather (37-0, 24 KOs) taunted and threatened De La Hoya -- and hung a replica of the Golden Boy's Olympic gold medal around a chicken's neck -- during their 11-city promotional tour, the fighters' Las Vegas extravaganza was decidedly muted. Mayweather said only a few words on the dais, and De La Hoya (38-4, 30 KOs) was equally brief.

"I'm hungry, I know what it takes and I'm ready to go out there and die in the ring," said Mayweather, who wore $1 million in diamond jewelry.

The only vintage trash-talking came from Roger Mayweather, Floyd's uncle and trainer, who attacked the fighting credentials of Freddie Roach, De La Hoya's respected trainer. Roach didn't acknowledge Roger Mayweather's jabs with a reply.

"Don't miss this one. It might not be too long," Roach said.

Though Mayweather claims to see fear in De La Hoya's eyes, both fighters seemed calm and comfortable. Those feelings could be due to their eight-figure paydays for what could end up being the most lucrative fight in boxing history.

Richard Schaefer, the chief executive of De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions, said the MGM Grand Garden Arena already has sold each of its 16,200 seats, and six casinos on the Las Vegas Strip already have combined to sell 15,700 seats at closed-circuit viewing parties for the mass of boxing fans heading to town this weekend.

Though both fighters seemed mellow, both realize a portion of their legacies hang on the outcome. Both have intimated it might be their last fights, though Mayweather said he would be open to a rematch depending on the outcome.

"I've got a lot of money. I'm fine," Mayweather said. "I wasn't chasing fame, and I wasn't chasing money. I was chasing respect, and going out as a legend."
