De La Hoya: Sparring With The Stars

By all accounts, the big fight between Mayweather and De La Hoya was pretty evenly matched, with Floyd getting the nod.

We have to wonder one thing: Did Oscar train hard enough?

This (scroll about half way down) account reports that De La Hoya sparred the Monday before the fight with..............Mario Lopez.

Yes the "Saved by the Bell" and "Dancing with the Stars" guy.

Ummm. We don't claim to have ever trained for a fight against the guy that is considered the best pound for pound in the world. We have only been in a few bar room brawls in our youths. And taking a few swings at AC Slater certainly wouldn't even have prepared us for that.

Although, we'd be the first to admit; it sure sounds like it would be fun to punch Mario in the brain.

Sir, you undersell Mr. Lopez. Do not forget his oscar worty performance in , "Breaking the Surface: The Greg Louganis Story" and "The Golden Girls".

Sir, we apologize for "underselling" Senor Lopez.

We just didn't know any one was buying.

You also forget Mario Lopez and his 16 time conference Wrestling Championships.

He led Bayside to the top. The Top I tells ya!

"He led Bayside to the top. The Top I tells ya! "

Sir, so what you are saying...and let us know if we are correct here...is that the combination of incredible striking skills he has developed while simulating Floyd, Jr. for Oscar; coupled with his unmatched grappling ability....adds up to.....The Ultimate Fighter!

Some one tell Chuck Liddel to start worrying.

Sir, who is Chuck Liddel? That's our parking spot, we were here first.

Sir, did we spell his name wrong?

And, no, back your truckup. We were here with our Escalade first! Right, Turtle?!

Well, sir, I do not know if Lidell and Lopez match up in weight classes. However, if they do. I declare Mario Lopez would, at the very least have a better shoing than one Huntington Beach Bad Boy against Chuck Lidell.

Sir, if Mario were to dye his hair platinum blonde and start "dating" a porn star...we offer that one would not be able to tell AC and Tito apart.
