By Jhonny Gonzalez

Three division world champion Felix "Tito" Trinidad has been retired since January 19, 2008 - and has no desire to return to the ring, but he would be willing to return to the gym if Oscar De La Hoya was willing to stage a rematch. They fought 13 years ago - on September 18, 1999 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas - and Trinidad won a close twelve round majority decision. De La Hoya himself has been retired since December 2008.

A rematch has been negotiated numerous times over the years but the two boxers were never able to reach an agreement on the money. Trinidad doesn't see money as the issue but there could be an issue with the agreed upon weight. The Puerto Rican boxer would probably be able to get down to 168 and De La Hoya has never fought above 160 and last fought at 147, although he killed his to make the weight.

"I've always been willing to fight him. If he [Oscar] comes out and says, 'Tito, I want to fight you ... something serious ...[I might return]. The rematch between Roy Jones and [Bernard] Hopkins, it took almost 18 years [to put together]. We [fought] 13 years [ago]," said Trinidad to Noel Planas.

Mad this fight never had a rematch Oscar beat the brakes off of Tito; I still can't re-watch that fight.

[QUOTE=GoldSugar]Seriously. He picked up trash fighting bums and blown up lightweights his whole title reign. No Quartey, no prime Whitaker, no Page, no Lopez, no Rivera. Carr was Tito's best win and that was in 94 lmao[/QUOTE] You really have no idea what your talking about. Undefeated...

[QUOTE=GoldSugar]LOL if Oscar had no energy he'd have not been able to run away you simple fcker. He schooled Trinidad in rounds 7,8,9 so you're full of it. Trinidad took 10,11,12 and lost pretty much all the early rounds. Get over it![/QUOTE] Your an idiot. Theres nothing to get over, tit...
