Bob Arum, promoter of Oscar De La Hoya stated to USA Today that he was very upset with the performance of Oscar De La Hoya against Felix Sturm.

"Oscar owes me an apology, I think, because I set this (June) thing up so both guys would look terrific and everyone would say how great they looked. That didn't happen." said Arum

"Bernard fought a beast, a big puncher and fought an intelligent fight and dominated. He fought brilliantly. Did he look sensational? No, but he fought the fight he should fight."

"Bernard fought a beast, a big puncher and fought an intelligent fight and dominated. He fought brilliantly. Did he look sensational? No, but he fought the fight he should fight.
