Published June 15, 1998
Oscar De La Hoya defended his WBC welterweight title on Saturday by knocking down Patrick Charpentier in the third round in El Paso, TX, before 45,368, according to Barry Horn of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Horn: "Given the quality of some of his opponents of late, there are those who would debate the claim that De La Hoya is the best fighter pound- for-pound in the world. That he is boxing's best igniter heartbeat-for-heartbeat cannot be denied" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 6/14).
