After some handbags at a recent press conference things are really hotting up in the build up to the "Fight of the Century."
Mayweather said he was going to do what he has done in all his 37 fights, and beat him up real bad. He jabbed Oscar in the chest and called him a pussy.
De La Hoya remained calm, said he would do his talking in the ring, and while he respected all Mayweather has achieved come May 5th, he would be "hurting for weeks."
I don't think I have been this excited about a fight for years, but what do we make of all this pre-fight (by a few months) bluster? Is Mayweather genuinely worried by De La Hoya? Is all this trashtalk from 'Pretty Boy Floyd' getting to De La Hoya? What effect will the absence of Mayweather Sr have on De La Hoya? Finally, what do we think will happen when two of the best fighters of their generation finally get it on in the ring?
