YAWN - De La Hoya vs. Mosley 

 

HBO Boxing

 

September 13, 2003 - 6pm PT

Las Vegas, Nevada

On HBO PPV

 

With a little over two weeks to go, the rematch between Oscar De La Hoya and "Sugar" Shane Mosley

looms .... ah, who am I kidding, this fight bores me.

 

Why does it bore me? 

 

Well, I really don't want to see De La Hoya avenge his loss to Mosley when Mosley is coming of a no

contest in his last bout (opponent cut from headbutt) and two losses previous to that.  

 

Not a glowing endorsement for a rematch bout.

 

Sure, Mosley is a good boxer but I would rather see him gather his bearings with some tune-up fights, then

fight for a title. Preferably against WBC welterweight champ Ricardo Mayorga (26-3-1, 23 KO's). Then I

would have like to seen a rematch between Fernando Vargas (23-2, 21 KO's) and De La Hoya. And if

Mosley and De La Hoya both won those bouts, then I would have like to seen the rematch between the two.

But that's just me.- SN
