      I really don’t see it but ? I think ODL plays him like a matador and stops him before the final bell .

        De La Hoya will knock him out, but he is supposed to. If Belfort goes the distance, it's a bit embarrassing, considering that a ko is allowed, and Vitor has never boxed before.

        The other mma guy, Anderson Silva, he can box very well. I was very impressed with his boxing.

          He has boxed he has an amateur boxing background and one pro fight.
          He's trained under Pedro Diaz for years he is no stranger to boxing and I doubt Oscar stops him purely because of the size difference, Vitor has competed as a heavyweight and must walk around at 210-220lbs, he is huge.

            Since this isn’t an exhibition what weight will this fight be contested at? If these fights are going to happen the weights should be comparable.

              ESPN wrote: "The boxing match, which will be staged at Staples Center in Los Angeles, will be contested over eight two-minute rounds at 180 pounds. De La Hoya and Belfort can weigh within 5 pounds of the limit."

              I don't know why they don't just have a hard limit at 185lbs instead of saying it's 180lbs... but they can weigh within 5lbs of that.

                Beltor boxed as an amateur and once as a pro and was a boxer before MMA. Hes not a novice and is a massive man... De la Hoya's career high was 160. Belfort , heavyweight...

                Dont be shocked if theres not a KO, it's only 16mins of action (2min rounds x 8), first three will likely be feeling out. Then Oscar taking over. Both dudes are retired so don't expect much.. but I do believe it'll get scrappy. And be entertaining for sure.

                  It’s been so uneventful. I’m getting intrigued by this.
