Ring legend Oscar de la Hoya won a five round decision over hoops legend Shaquille O’ Neal in a five-round boxing exhibition before a star-studded crowd at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. The bout took place on the latest installment of “Shaq VS,” the new ABC series starring NBA superstar Shaquille O’ Neal. Shaq, who coined himself “Manny Shaqquiao” for the exhibition, got boxing tips from Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach while “The Golden Boy” was trained by Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins.
Oscar was also seen in the ring last Saturday night in Panama, participating in an exhibition match against WBA executive vice president Gilberto Jesus Mendoza. The two boxed three two-minute rounds, raising $25,000 for the fight against cancer during the WBA’s KO Drugs Festival XXI.
