De La Hoya Loses the Fight of the Century - We'll Have Another Fight of the Century in a Few Months

Why is boxing genetically disposed to be over the top sleazy?

Over the last few weeks, there has been an unending barrage of commercials in the Los Angeles area about the De La Hoya-Mayweather fight. The commercials basically stated that the world was riveted by this matchup, and included brief sound bites from the people of the world either saying "De La Hoya" or "Mayweather." Strangely enough, the people of the world all sound like they live in East El Lay or in Vegas, Baby.

As I was wrapping up some stuff on the computer here, I remember that the fight was supposed to take place around 8, so I surfed to find out the results. The article that I found had a running commentary sort of format. Excerpts:

Now Mayweather enters the ring wearing a Mexican sombrero and Mexican colors as an in your face psychological move to a 50 Cent song- total disrespect intended.

Stars are everywhere the camera lands, from the UK and the US, Tom Jones, P. Diddy, John Cusack, Jack Nicholson, Wesley Snipes, John McCain, Ron Howard, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Jim Carrey. What an exciting night in Las Vegas.

De La Hoya enters-class act-to the strains of a Mexican song....

Tommy-115-113 De La Hoya

Chuck-116-112 Mayweather


Mayweather wins the belt.

So let's get ready to rematch, or whatever. The verdict is out:

Good, the crowd booed it.

Oscar was robbed, they didn't know how to count, the whole thing was...rigged.

On the other hand:
