Oscar De La Hoya (32-1, 26 KOs)
vs. Shane Mosley (34-0, 32 KOs)
June 17, 2000, Staples Center, Los Angeles
The most-anticipated fight of the year lived up to all expectations, with The Golden Boy and Sugar Shane matching every bit of their skill and savvy in what would become one of the greatest rivalries of the era. The unbeaten Mosley, from Compton, felt under-appreciated. De La Hoya, from East Los Angeles, was already an icon, but felt like he hadn't yet earned the respect of South of the Border fans. Each had plenty to prove and brought their best to the Staples Center for the first of their classic fights.
