De La Hoya Needs To Retire

What a sorry performance.

Oscar De La Hoya proved again to be the biggest featherweight in the world after getting KO’d by Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas on Saturday, Dec. 6.

De La Hoya looked slow and old and that was before he refused to come out of his corner after the eighth round. He couldn’t handle Pacquiao’s jab or left uppercut. And it was Pacquiao’s SPEED that overwhelmed De La Hoya. When has that ever happened?

There wasn’t a single punch De La Hoya was landing with authority as he was out-fought and out-manned by a smaller, more determined and simply better Pacquiao, who said he knew he would beat the ‘Golden Boy’ after the 2nd Round.

De La Hoya talked the talk before the fight, hamming it up for cameras on that ESPN-produced mock-u-drama. He did his best to try and make others believe he had one more good fight, one more victory, in him.

Now we know it isn’t just his act that’s grown old.
