Haven't seen the fight yet so I can't comment on De La Hoyas aggressiveness or MayWeather's in-aggressiveness, but I know that aggressiveness isn't everything either. There have been plenty of fights where the aggressor was getting tagged the whole fight, such is the nature of the game when fighting a counter puncher, we wait for the aggressors to make their move in order to conduct our own offense. Mayweather is a counter puncher which will explain his not chasing around the ring. Mayweather was more than likely moving in order to get better angles for his punches. Good Ring Generalship requires that a fighter be well versed in usage of the entire ring, not just the middle, not just the corners, not just the ropes. In the end, punch stats speak volumes as compared to level of aggressiveness. When you have a guy that threw 587 punches versus a guy that threw about a hundred less punches (481) yet still managed to land over 70 more punches than the former fellow, then the latter fellow should and will be the winner safe for some ill-informed judge. Let's not even talk power punches, De La Hoya threw 341, landing 82 versus Mayweather who threw exactly a hundred less punches, landing 56 more power punches than De La Hoya. Mayweather won, on paper and according to most experts.

I must say DLH had to ENGAGE FM a of a lot more. But DLH's "flurries" were powerless, FM laughed a majority of em off. It was obvious that FM's strategy was to try and tire DLH.

FM should of went at him hard , that was my first time watching him fight and his speed is crazy, i think off speed alone he could of put it on DLH

DLH on the other hand was just throwing wild shots to me w/o much behind then, it was like a scene out of a rocky movie where he was the crowd favorite and they went crazy when he threw punches

EXACTLY what friends of mine who've seen it have been saying. He was the crowd favorite and they went crazy when he threw punches, but the punches weren't doing any damage...

...now as far as FM going str8 at him, not really his style, he likes to counter. He moves to create angles...

That fight was a waste of $50 on PPV. All FM did was jab at DLH's gloves and I will credit him with a few good shots, but 90% of the time he was just running around the ring. DLH landed shots all nights and got him good against the ropes in most of the rounds and kept FM on the run. This fight reminded me of the Lewis vs Holyfield fight where Lewis got robbed of the title. In my opinion this just showed how much corruption there really is in boxing. If there's a rematch DLH will kick FM's a$$! Oh and did ya hear at the end of the fight when FM's dad even said DLH won the fight!!!!:BangHead:

Watch the fight if you can, I agree with you except FM didn't back DLH up and many of the punches that he landed were glancing blows. I would say that many of those power shots..........weren't so powerful. Like was said earlier neither man had a mark on him, and DLH has usually gotten pretty red around the eye's when he gets hit. Power shots may be a generous term.....in this case.:eh:
