Description : Here we have an original Top Rank Boxing closed circuit poster in association with Caesars Palace Las Vegas the official fight sponsors for the mega fight rematch that took place at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

ESPN magazine recently labeled World Boxing Counsel welterweight champion Oscar De La Hoya the "DiCaprio of boxing" because of the way female fans swoon over his matinee-idol features. But there was nothing pretty about the way a determined De La Hoya beat back a surprising challenge from former three-time champion Julio Cesar Chavez of Mexico. With Chavez spitting blood after the eighth round, his cornermen conceded defeat. Chavez insisted it was not his wish to end the fight, but did not protest his corner's decision. Chavez, a 7-1 underdog and considered by boxing critics to be way past his prime at 36, turned back the clock in forcing the unbeaten De La Hoya (29-0) to exhibit tremendous heart and endurance. Just when Chavez (101-3-2) seemed to be turning the fight in his favor against the arm-weary champion in the eighth round, De La Hoya showed new resolve and regained command. But the ending still shocked the capacity crowd of 17,715 at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Afterward, there were no alibis from Chavez. "I told Oscar, if he won tonight, I would give him my respect," Chavez said. "Now he has it. We shook hands like good friends. The past is forgotten. He is a great champion."
