    rematch?

    LAS VEGAS -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. wanted to give Oscar De La Hoya a beating. He had to settle for just getting a win. Mayweather won one of boxing's richest fights ever Saturday night by using his superb defensive skills and superior speed to take a 12-round split decision and win the WBC 154-pound title in his first fight at that weight.

    The fight was billed as one that would save boxing, and while it didn't do that, it was an entertaining battle between two proud champions who fought hard from the opening bell through the end of the final round.

    The fight ended with the sellout crowd on its feet roaring and two fighters trading punches wildly at the final bell. They then stopped and embraced each other.

    Mayweather was favored on one scorecard 116-112 and 115-113 on a second. De La Hoya was ahead 115-113 on the third scorecard. ESPN.com's Dan Rafael had Mayweather winning 116-112, as did The Associated Press.

    In the end, Mayweather was simply faster and more slippery in a bout where neither fighter managed to hurt the other and neither went down

    Hindi kasing exciting ng super featherweight division. Division ng dalawang Pacquiao, Morales, Barrera, Marquez, Valero the tricycle driver, Soto at marami pang iba

    Pakiramdam ko talaga si Dela Hoya nanalo dun. May rematch yan. Parang gagawan ng trilogy na mala Pacquiao-Morales ang dating hehe.

    The Golden Boy vs Pretty boy fight was boaring. It was really hyped to be one of the best fights. It was not even in the top fifty most exciting fights. Mukang nagka lutuan pa.

    Totoong boring yung fight. Sa sobrang boring sa tv, binasa ko na yung internet reports. Wala man lang slam bang action nung first few rounds. Wala man lang actions ala Hagler-Leonard, Hearns-Leonard, Duran-Leonard, Ali-Frazier, Pacquiao-Morales, etc

    Dangit, talo Rangers. Oh, well, it was an interesting series and they went farther than they did last year.

    boring fight. mayweather must think he's fighting in the olympics, where it's sufficient to win just by jabbing away. boom boom's fight was reportedly a rumble though so that's a saving grace. i missed the live coverage and the replay - will there be another replay?

    dela hoya- mayweather.

    Nakatulugan ko from the 4th to the 11th. Nang magising ako, aba ang linis ng mukha ng dalawa! Wala man lang gasgas.

    Ano ginawa nila habang natutulog ako?
    We had a head start in this game. At one time we had a glorious 3rd place finish in the World Championship and was the undisputed power in Asia. But the world has learned how to play it. They may not be as good as us,but they have enough smarts to make use of their height. That is enough to beat us.

    Nagdepensahan. Nag-ilagan. Pangit, if there is a rematch I hope it gives credence to the title The World Awaits
