Saturday Night Boxing
De La Hoya VS. Mayorga; the boxer VS. the puncher, the Golden Boy VS. the chain smoking thug. And yes I fell victim to the odds makers tonight, I placed a paltry sum on Mayorga. I knew it wasn't rational, it wasn't a good idea but it would have paid so well. In the end De La Hoya did boxing a favor and took it out of the judges hands and TKO'd Mayorga in the 6th, in an impressive show of power and patience he simply outclassed Mayorga. I whinnied in joy, it is the Kentucky Derby weekend after all, Dawn involuntarily clapped, and my friend and fellow bettor Ryan lamented as our bad bet went down; it was a good fight, one sided though it was.
