No Rematch


I woke up this morning and turned on the TV and started to watch SportsCenter. Right off the bat it put me in a bad mood. The ESPN boxing commentator and I watched a totally different fight. I’m not the biggest or most knowledgeable boxing fan out there, but I do know a good fight when I see one. The ESPN boxing commentator was trying to make a point of if you are a boxing fan or in the Los Vegas audience you seen a good fight, because you can argue who won the fight on both sides. Floyd Mayweather Jr won in a split decision, which only left this camp satisfied. This fight did not live up all of the hype and Floyd Mayweather Jr trash talking.

Right after the fight, Floyd Mayweather Jr trainer said we kick Oscar De La Hoya ass. Wrong, you dance around Oscar De La Hoya and played only defense to win the fight in a decision. Not once in the fight did Floyd Mayweather Jr tired to go for the knock out. It was his camp strategy to play it safe, dance around and out last Oscar De La Hoya. Floyd Mayweather Jr did not display any passion.

There is no point of a rematch. If these two men do fight again it is just going to be another reply of this fight. Floyd Mayweather Jr is going to be satisfied winning in another decision and getting a big pay check while Oscar De La Hoya is swing wildly trying to catch a faster boxer who is not willing to go toe to toe with him.

OT: Is it really Manny Pacquiao's last fight ? Manny Pacquiao remain adamant that he will retire from boxing after his fight with Timothy Bradley on Apr. 9 in Las Vegas. But the Filipino boxing icon also revealed he is open for a comeback once he hangs up his gloves.
