Re: Aikido and Target Focus Training

Actually, it took eight rounds, and Delahoya looked like he was winning for a time. I remember this fight...

Oscar De La Hoya surprised many fans Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins was on the menu and Oscar almost made Hopkins look old while winning three of the first four rounds on my card. But by the fifth round, Hopkins got comfortable and used his advantages in height and power to take over the momentum of the fight. In the eighth round, Hopkins landed a left hook to the liver that put Oscar down. He was out for the count. It was the first time Oscar was knocked out.
