Description : Here we have an original full-size onsite MGM Grand main event poster for the WBC Light/Middleweight Title fight from the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

After defeating Arturo Gatti in March 2001 Oscar De la Hoya decided to move up to light-middleweight, challenging the Spanish Lineal/WBC champion Javier Castillejo. On fight night, De La Hoya proved his weight in gold as he dominated the action from start to finish. Castillejo was tough, but outmanned. In the final seconds of the 12th round, Castillejo landed a solid left hook to De La Hoya's face. This only enraged De La Hoya, as he then responded with a flurry of punches that sent the champion to the canvas. Castillejo beat the count, but not the judges' scorecards. All three scored the fight 119-108....The CompuBox numbers also showed the Golden Boy's dominance. He landed 54 percent of his 749 punches, compared to just 18 percent for Castillejo.

At age 28, De La Hoya became the youngest man to win world titles in five different divisions (both Hearns and Leonard were in their early 30s)
