Review: 2000-06-17, Oscar De La Hoya had lost the WBC welterweight title against Felix Trinidad in 1999, but the Puerto Rican boxer left the title vacant (since he moved up in weight class to the light middleweight division), thus the “Golden Boy” faced Shane Mosley to get hold of the title. “Sugar” Shane was still undefeated, having a record of 34-0-0, while Oscar De La Hoya entered the fight with a record of 32-1-0. The first fight between Shane Mosley and Oscar De La Hoya was a spectacular and balanced battle; one of the Fights of the Year 2000. Watch the video!
