American Son: My Story Oscar De La Hoya with Steve Springer HarperCollins: 286 pages, $25.95 For decades, the health of boxing depended on the presence of a crossover star-the pugilist who could compel non-boxing fans to hit the pay-per-view button.

When he defeated Oscar De La Hoya in June 2000 for the World Boxing Council welterweight crown, Shane Mosley was poised to replace De La Hoya as boxing's brightest star. Mosley was 35-0. He had shown speed, power, poise and showmanship similar to Ray Leonard and Ray Robinson - Hall of Famers with whom he shares the nickname "Sugar." But as swiftly as Mosley had risen in the boxing world, two losses to Vernon Forrest over six months in 2002 sent him plummeting to near has-been status. Now, a fiery, resentful Mosley (38-2, 35 knockouts)

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - Floyd Mayweather has staked his reputation as boxing's best fighter, pound-for-pound. Roy Jones used to hold the mythical title, but a loss earlier this month would seem to leave the crown to Mayweather. Mayweather (32-0, 21 knockouts) has made his case in the ring, most recently here on Saturday night, outclassing former junior welterweight champion DeMarcus Corley with a unanimous decision in a 12-round, non-title bout. Mayweather, a champion at 130 and 135 pounds, moved up to the 140-pound class for the fight.

LAS VEGAS - Undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins said he has no problem that two of the judges chosen for his Saturday night defense against Oscar De La Hoya gave De La Hoya the 12th round in his controversial decision over Felix Sturm on June 5, and that the third, Keith MacDonald, hasn't worked a fight of this magnitude. De La Hoya (37-3, 29 knockouts) edged Sturm, 115-113, on all three cards, with Dave Moretti and Paul Smith awarding him the final round. With the win, De La Hoya claimed Sturm's World Boxing Organization title.
