If you’re a betting man, id say Mayweather would be the most “safe” choice. But personally, id like to see De La Hoya win. Floyd may be faster than De La Hoya but he also is more arrogant to the point of being disrespectful of his more storied opponent. Oh dont forget that the last 2 opponents who tried to trashtalk the Golden boy: Ricardo Mayorga and Fernando Vargas, both got decked via TKO.
