Comments

  • Bob Arum (De La Hoya's promoter): "I've never even seen anything like this in my life!! It wasn't even close!!"
  • De La Hoya (on the investigation request to be filed): "I'm really going to put my heart into it and the resources I have."
  • Mosley: "I really don't know what to think about that [investigation]. All I know is that I won the fight, I'm the legitimate champion of the world. I feel like I won a couple of fights that I lost, or won a fight that I lost... what can you do?"
