Oscar De La Hoya wants a rematch with Manny Pacquiao!

No, I am not making this up:

Oscar De La Hoya's Future: Rumor Control | Bleacher Report

"Sources close to the Golden Boy camp have been saying Oscar is upset over his loss to Manny Pacquiao. Oscar is believed to be angling to get a rematch with Manny Pacquiao perhaps as earlier as late this spring.
Oscar does not want to end his career with this loss. Oscar believed that he was overtrained by his trainers for this fight. There also appeared to be much confusion in Oscar's corner the night of the fight.

Who would train Oscar in a rematch? Floyd Mayweather, Sr. who previously trained Oscar De La Hoya has stated he would be willing to train Oscar De La Hoya in a rematch with Pacquiao. In another recent interview Mayweather, Sr. sated the following:
“I can tell you is that it wasn’t all Oscar’s fault. I know personally of two things that went on in Oscar’s training camp. There was a lot of stuff that went on in camp that was counter productive to Oscar’s training,” said the controversial fight coach.
Mayweather also picked Ricky Hatton to beat Pacquiao if the two should ever face one another."

My question is, who would want to see this? We know what happened the first time!

Dude, he should just retire as planned. Like what they said in the Knight...he's been weighed, he's been measured, and he's been found wanting.

Granted he doesn't want to end his career with a loss, what happens if he loses again after a rematch? Another one? :lol:

You can't start calling re-matches willy nilly just because you feel you were "over-trained".

Like it was mentioned before, he wants to end his career with a win, so what, he could be boxing on forever to obtain this win.

I say he retires as intended, too many boxers have gone one fight too many and it's punished them forever.

This doesn't make much sense, De La Hoya had his oppurtunity against Pacquiao and he just destroyed him. I don't understand why Oscar would demand a rematch like this. If I was Manny I wouldn't accept a rematch.

De la Hoya should retire with the grace of the champion he once was,if it had been a close fight i would of understood wanting a rematch,but his performance was lack lustre,and he did nothing to warrant a another shot.

If he gets a shot and he loses again what would he blame it on.
