2007-05-05 Floyd Mayweather Jr w pts 12 Oscar De La Hoya, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Kenny Bayless. Scorecards: 116-112, 115-113, 113-115.

Mayweather vacated the title in June, preferring to hold on to the WBC welterweight crown and following his decision he was given ‘emeritus’ status. Originally an eliminator, a match between Carlos Baldomir and Vernon Forrest, rated number two and three respectively by the WBC, was eventually given full title status after Oscar De La Hoya, the top-rated man, was undecided on his future.
