Sources close to the Golden Boy camp have been saying Oscar is upset over his loss to Manny Pacquiao. Oscar is believed to be angling to get a rematch with Manny Pacquiao perhaps as earlier as late this spring.

Oscar does not want to end his career with his most recent dramatic loss to Manny Pacquiao. Oscar believes that his trainers overtrained him for the Pacquiao fight, a mistake he hopes not to make again. On TV there appeared to be a lot of confusion in Oscar's corner the night of the fight.

Who would train Oscar in a rematch? Floyd Mayweather, Sr. has stated he is willing to take the job. Mayweather, Sr. previously trained Oscar De La Hoya and has stated he would be willing to train Oscar De La Hoya in a rematch with Pacquiao. In another recent interview Mayweather, Sr. stated the following:

“I can tell you is that it wasn’t all Oscar’s fault. I know personally of two things that went on in Oscar’s training camp. There was a lot of stuff that went on in camp that was counter productive to Oscar’s training,” said the controversial fight coach.

Mayweather Sr. also picked Ricky Hatton to beat Pacquiao if the two should ever face one another.
