Sportrait: Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya


Boxers always try to get in each other's faces before an upcoming match. Stare down one's opponent with a display of machismo.

Box1 Box2

It's a pretty tough act for a couple of pretty boys, as was the case when Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya faced off yesterday at NYC's Waldorf Astoria Hotel to announce their May 5th Junior Middleweight Championship fight at the MGM Hotel in Las Vegas.


The face-off broke up as Mayweather stripped off his jacket, setting off what looked like an episode of "Pants Off, Dance Off", but never quite got that far.

See the rest, after the jump...




C'mon Oscar, you can do better than that.

  3. Oh jeez! The look on Oscar's face is priceless! He's IN LOVE with his opponent! Or at least with his body!

    I saw John Ameichi on Bill Maher the other night and he said the locker rooms of the NBA are the gayest place ever, with all of the "straight" guys checking each other out and adding product to their hair... he also said there's huge irony because some of the players arrive wearing "Jesus loves you" wristbands and then proceed to discuss their sexual conquests from the night before.

  5. I wanna be the cheese in their Ash Wednesday sandwich.

    What babes... the black guy is obviously a dreamboat and hung like a horse.

    And Oscar is the hottest Mexican I have ever seen.

  8. Krishnan, get a life. "The black guy" has a name -- Floyd Mayweather. It's right there in the headline. And I'm not sure why you assume he is "hung like a horse." Can you see something through his jeans that the rest of us can't? Oh I see, it's because he's black. Both of these guys have very delicious bodies, to be sure, but the racial objectification is truly icky and uncalled for.
