De La Hoya vs. Hopkins 2 Not a Done Deal!

By Rick Reeno

The last time I had Oscar De La Hoya on the site, he said that he could not believe how easy it was to outbox Bernard Hopkins. Oscar thought the fight would be much harder then it actually was.  The first thought in my mind was that if the fight was so easy, why doesnt Oscar ask for a rematch, now I'm eating some crow. Oscar De La Hoya not only asked Hopkins for a rematch, an agreement was drafted and from what Golden Boy Promotions stated to the press, was also agreed to in principle.

There was an actual press conference scheduled for tomorrow by Golden Boy Promotions in order to announce the mega rematch between Oscar De La Hoya and Bernard Hopkins, now the conference may be put off and the fight not as close to being a done deal as De La Hoya once thought.

Steve Springer of the LA Times reported that late Sunday, Richard Schaefer, head of Golden Boy Promotions received a letter from Arnold Joseph, attorney for Bernard Hopkins, which stated that Bernard has not agreed to anything.

"Bernard and I have just discussed the e-mail which I understand you sent to the press on Friday. Bernard is disturbed that a communication involving him was released without his express consent or knowledge. While it is true that we have received and are considering Golden Boy's proposal, as you know, Bernard has not agreed to anything."  said Joseph

BoxingScene will stay on top of this story and will give our audience full details if an agreement is reached today.

[QUOTE=Eman]i dont think he is a sore loser, he showed class in everyone of his loses that i can recall.[/QUOTE] Class??!? When he lost the second fight to Mosley he said he was going to launch an "investigation". Investigation?!? I mean, he had every right to say that he thought he got...

Hopkins is going on like he is a legend. If he is that brillant why does he not promote Hopkins vs De La Hoya 2 himself. so let him waste money on his attorney saying never agreed nothing typical like he never agreed to fight Roy Jones, Joe Calzaghe, James Toney, yet he can does not mind callin...

[QUOTE=baserocks]Oscar wants this fight because he wants to go down in history as a 6 division champion. Hes already won every title from 130 to 154, now hes going for just one more. I think he has a chance of outpointing Bernard, but I wouldnt bet on it. I'd be cheering for Bernard because I w...

[QUOTE=Bombardier]I just don't see the point of DLH continuing to fight at this level. The man dominated in lower divisions, and there's nothing wrong with dropping back down to a class where you rule (unless you take it to an extreme). The thing is that he's simply not built to take on middles...

Forget about the rematch . . . I'm also a DLH fan but I'll say that he is stupid if he goes for Hopkins again. Hopkins started too cautious in that fight that's why DLH lasted that long . . . and it may not be the same next time around. If DLH is just after the money fight other named fighters...
