De La Hoya made a cameo on the show’s broadcast during Frank Mir’s fight with Steve Cunningham. The entire program had a very casual vibe and featured musical performances intertwined with the boxing fights. Broadcasters were encouraged to be relaxed and cussed with regularity.

Even though the vibe was relaxed, De La Hoya crossed the line into being too unprofessional. Many viewers felt the “Golden Boy” was wasted.

“I started having a couple drinks, and then they told me ‘why don’t you go and commentate?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, man! OK, OK,'” De La Hoya said during an interview on “The DAZN Boxing Show.”

  Putting a capstone on North Texas SC’s preseason (and catching up on some news) FC Dallas’ second team shifts its focus from all this preparation to performance.But first, a brief interim point: a few NTSC alumni made news since we last spoke. Winger Beni Redzic was signed on a 2+3 homegrown contract with the first team after spending all of the preseason in their setup, CB Justin Che made his competitive debut and his first start for Bayern II, and NTSC loanee David Rodriguez, an attacking midfielder, made his Liga MX debut and first start for struggling Atletico San Luis, his hometown club.

“I got a little carried away and I apologize,” De La Hoya said.

The 48-year-old acknowledged in the interview that he was consuming alcohol, which is how it sounded to most viewers. De La Hoya sounded like he had more than just a few drinks too (you can hear some of him here).

De La Hoya last fought professionally in 2008. He is set to make a boxing return on Triller in July. His relationship with the company helps explain why he ended up being a part of Saturday’s broadcast.

Is this an 'Asterisk Oscars' or a sign of things to come?

  Is this an 'Asterisk Oscars' or a sign of things to come? In 93 years of existence, the Oscars have been postponed by shootings — the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and the attempted killing of Ronald Reagan — and by a flood, when 1938 rainstorms overwhelmed the Los Angeles River. Sunday’s ceremony will be the first Academy Awards delayed by a pandemic. After a year that erased movie titles from marquees and sent seismic shockwaves through Hollywood, the show is going on — two months later than usual, in a crowdless ceremony at Los Angeles’ Union Station and with a batch of nominees that have barely played in movie theaters.

Some believe it “eliminated confusion” while others say “editing sounds is still a different kind of work from mixing sounds.” A new category name is also suggested.“Each Academy Branch updates its rules periodically. I expect that there will be further refinement by the Sound Branch,” summed up supervising sound editor, designer and rerecording mixer Randy Thom, a two-time Oscar winner for The Right Stuff and The Incredibles. “Going from two sound awards to one is controversial within the Sound Branch. On the visual side of things there are lots of categories: cinematography, production design, visual effects, costume design, makeup.
