Review: the fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Ricardo Mayorga was one of the most spectacular of 2006 (three knockdowns). De La Hoya was not fighting for nearly two years, since losing against Bernard Hopkins in 2004, while Mayorga came from the victory versus Michele Piccirillo with which he won the vacant WBC light middleweight title.

Review: 2002-09-14, Oscar De La Hoya vs Fernando Vargas was valid for three world titles of the light middleweight division, in fact De La Hoya was the champion for the WBC, while Vargas for the WBA and IBA. Oscar De La Hoya had already lost two times, once against Shane Mosley and the other one with Felix Trinidad (who had also already won against Fernando Vargas). Both boxers had a very spectacular way to fight even if different, and therefore could only be an exciting fight. Watch the video!
Review: 2001-03-24, Oscar De La Hoya vs Arturo Gatti, for us, was the fight of the year of 2001. De La Hoya, nine months before, had lost against Shane Mosley and absolutely needed a win to move closer to a world title, Gatti, instead, did not suffer any loss in the two previous years. Oscar De La Hoya and Arturo Gatti were two boxers very technical and spectacular that could not give us an exciting fight. Watch the video!
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!
