The HBO announcers are calling it a better fight than anticipated — and it did go the distance, but I don’t think this was a fight that is going to be remembered so fondly.

EVERYBODY was talking about this fight and I’m sure more people are watching than have in years, and sadly, this isn’t the fight that’s going to “wow” people into running to HBO for any of their aformentioned fights coming over the next few months.

It was a great clinical display of boxing by Mayweather, but hardly inspiring enough to spring for $54.95 for the next one.

115-113 De La Hoya
116-112 Mayweather
115-113 Mayweather

Split decision…

Oscar’s wife is disappointed…
People are booing…

That wholly unsatisfying feeling…

Crowd is yelling “BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT…”

Where’s Vince McMahon when you need him?!
