Description : Here we have an original onsite boxing fight poster for the Oscar De La Hoya WBC Welterweight Title defence at Caesars, Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Oscar De La Hoya retained his World Boxing Council welterweight championship after administering a battering to Wilfredo Rivera, which Referee Joe Cortez mercifully stopped at 2 minutes 48 seconds of the eighth round. After consulting with the ring doctor Howard Taylor, Cortez did stop the fight in the eighth round because of the severe cut over Rivera's right eye. A dejected Rivera walked across the ring, pounding his chest with his gloves as if to say that he still had enough heart to continue, while De La Hoya ran to the opposite end of the ring and jumped onto the second rope and waved to the crowd. He was a strong man, the strongest fighter I've faced, the Los Angeles-based De La Hoya (27-0) said of his opponent. He had such a big heart. I really felt strong in there. I felt like a real champ. When I had him cut badly, my corner told me to behave like a champion, take my time and take him out like a real champion, like a Sugar Ray Robinson would!
