Description : Here we have an original (Oscar De la Hoya-pre-championship) Top Rank Boxing/ESPN onsite event poster from the 'America West' Arena Phoenix, Arizona, October 30th 1993.

Fighting for the 11th time in less than a year since turning pro in late 1992, undefeated De La Hoya, 20, was knocked down for the first time in his boxing life, including more than 200 amateur bouts. His swift retaliation gave fans a first glimpse of a tenacity that his charming public persona camouflaged. Less than a minute in, De La Hoya stepped forward to land his signature overhand-right-left-hook combination to Valenzuela's head. With De La Hoya's hands low and head exposed, journeyman Valenzuela fired back a left jab and a short, hard right that caught De La Hoya on the chin, sending him onto the seat of his pants. The Golden Boy rolled over, stood near the ropes and shrugged to his handlers, and went back down to his knee until the referee's count reached eight. Then he delivered quick retribution. Four brutal punches to Valenzuela's head had him down 30 seconds later, and De La Hoya pumped his fist vengefully over his victim. Valenzuela rose, and De La Hoya finished him with a two-fisted barrage.
