Bout Summary

08 05 03 delahoya forbes.jpg

De La Hoya attacked from the opening bell, and the fight soon settled into a predictable pattern, with De La Hoya stalking Forbes and punishing him with combinations to the body and head. Late in the second round, De La Hoya unleashed a five-punch combination that backed up Forbes, causing a small trickle of blood to drip from his nose. Forbes was rarely able to get inside De La Hoya’s reach or mount any sustained attack. Both boxers boxed at a high technical level, but De La Hoya was simply too fast, too strong, and too skilled for Forbes, as he pitched a near shut-out on the scorecards against the outgunned Forbes.
