Champion Challenger

SKILL
HEART

This will be Oscar De La Hoya's first fight at 154 pounds. De La Hoya will be facing a very talented and hard hitting Javier Castillejo. The fight will most likely play out with De La Hoya utilizing his superior speed in the opening rounds to wear down the larger Castillejo. Look for De La Hoya to try to get ahead on the scoring quickly. Castillejo should counter De La Hoya's speed with body shots in an effort to slow his quicker opponent down. Castillejo will try to use his size and power advantage to frustrate De La Hoya in hopes of landing a big combo to send De La Hoya to the canvas.  Look for De La Hoya to become one of a select few to win world title in four different divisions by easily out pointing Javier Castillejo.  Please remember, no offense to De La Hoya nor his fans, but this will NOT be his fifth world title as his WBO Junior Lightweight Title he won against Johnny Bredahl is not a true world title.    

BoxingGurus.com Prediction:    De La Hoya by unanimous decision
