Guess I shoulda started this thread a week ago. Oh well. And I likely won't be able to see this fight. Still, let those predictions rip. :)

It's been so long since I've seen either fight...Mosley's my boy, but he has looked unimpressive in his most recent fights. I think De La Hoya in a decision, but I'll be praying that Sugar Shane knocks that pretty boy on his @ss.

De La Hoya will knock him down in round 6. De La Hoya is going to tear it up tonight, you watch.
I really want to see this fight. The first one was awesome. Sugar Shane lost both to Forrest. But style makes fight. And Forrest was his kryptonite. Just like Mayorga how has whooped Forrest twice after Forrest beat Shane twice.
Shane has that speed over Oscar. Oscar has the will and power. Both guys are superior boxers. I can't call this one. One thing's for sure: a loss would be devastating for both fighters.

Mark my words..
De La Hoya wins it in 6.
If you can't see the fight, here's a round-by-round via ESPN.com. There was an accidental headbutt in Round 4 and Oscar is bleeding.
One thing to note. ESPN.com has Oscar up 4-1. But ESPN on TV thinks it's 4-1 Mosley. I guess we'll find out. :)
.com has it 6-1 for Oscar. Seems he's controlling the fight somewhat.
This is funny. ESPN TV keeps giving Mosley rounds. Yet .com is giving them to Oscar. ;)

Didn't see it, but man I wish my man De La Hoya would have won.
Apparently, this is a shocker. Early word is that most felt De La Hoya ran away with it. I wish I had ESPN News.

He probably did, he is an awesome boxer...just wait until Monday and watch Around the Horn, Max will be sure to talk about it.
Kellerman is saying that it was tough to score because the rounds were so close. But they're saying that they've never seen De La Hoya as hurt as he was in this fight. Both fighters very fast tonight. Kellerman had it 8-4 Mosley. Mosley the aggressor. Threw bigger shots.

After the "experts" watch the macth a few more times, we'll see who they think sould have won.

if that picture is indicative of how De La Hoya looked throughout most of the fight, then Mosley deserved it! ha! I can't wait for the HBO replay next week.

ESPN talked about it...
They said they never saw him so hurt and that Mosley won for the people who saw it at the place, for people on TV it looks like De La Hoya won because the short little punches are seen effectively up close.

De La Hoya looks like a martian in that picture.
I remember hearing that Oscar had a Cortisone shot in his left hand earlier this week. Wonder if that had any affect on him tonight.

WHat's that Muck?
It's a steroid used, among other things, as an anti-inflammitory. In sports, guys will get shots before a game so they can play. It's usually pretty painful.
It's not an anabolic steroid. Not a performance enhancer. It's more of a healing chemical. You're body naturally produces it. But taking it in large doses is very dangerous (see Alonzo Mourning).

And it isn't illegal to use?
