You've just come back after judging from ringside the upcoming De La Hoya v Mayweather bout, So what happend.
Give me your score card and or a short fight report on how you saw it.
RND9- OSCAR KO'S FLOYD
Floyd has not fought the caliber of fighters that De La Hoya has, pound for pound, Mayweather is an excellent fighter. But Gatti, Judah, Quartey are not ample opponents. Also, Oscar is a better fighter when he is mad and he is definately mad at Mayweather.
judge 2 scores the fight 117 TO 115 mayweather
judge 3 scores the fight 119 TO 113 and the winner
DE LA HOYA
He was just to dame good, he reminded me of Sugar Ray leonard.
not a whole lot of action throughout the fight, but oscar continuously attempts big power punches, knowing it is his best shot to win...he only lands a couple, resulting in the rounds he does win...meanwhile, floyd uses his youth, speed, and style to take control of the fight...he tires oscar out as he forces him to chase around the ring, and gets in numerous good counterpunches while oscar attempts to land the knockout blow

Rd 9 Oscar
Mayweather knows he is defeated, says his hand is injured and the fight is brought to a hault in a cowardly way. TKO Oscar 9th/10th. I see Mayweather grimmecing from his "hands" and saying that Oscar needs to fight him at 100%. Mayweather quits on his stool going into the 10th rd or stops it himself in the 10th rd by telling the ref his hand hurts.
Throughout the fight Oscar applied effective pressure, Mayweather lands visable shots but they are shadowed by Oscars power shots and activity level as well as pressing the fight constantly. Floyd wins some rounds by running and pot-shotting. Oscar adapts to Floyd and accumulates clean points with only his jab, making mayweather try to catch up, this is where Mayweather takes a systematic beating because he is not good going forward. Around the 7th round he realizes he wont make it and starts making gestures that his hand is hurt from the 7th on to the 10th.
All in Favor of the NEW WBC Junior Middleweight Champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.
