Art Aragon, who was boxing's "Golden Boy" long before Oscar De La Hoya was even a boy, was in Las Vegas to get his first look at the youngster who has taken over the nickname.
"Never saw him fight before, not on TV, never," said Aragon, 68 and a longtime Los Angeles lightweight and welterweight. "For a long time, I didn't want to see him, but then, before this fight, I asked somebody how much he was gonna make. They said $9 million. I said they can call him anything they want."
