Shaq Fights Down at Oscar de la Hoya's Level

8/19/2009 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It was hardly a fair fight -- Shaq is 7'1", 325 lbs, Oscar De La Hoya is 5'10", 154lbs -- but the two strapped on the gloves and threw down in Vegas last night ... and the footage is AWESOME.

Shaq & Oscar: Click to watch
During the fight at the Planet Hollywood Hotel, the diminutive boxing champion is clearly holding his own against the behemoth of basketball -- even landing a few shots on the big man's grill.

As the for winner -- we're guessing we're gonna have to tune into that "Shaq Vs." show to find out.

Daddy wants some of the pie too.    

I had a buddy in High School. Tiny guy but was really quick. Watched him demolish a football player twice his size in about 15 seconds. If Oscar didn't win the fight it was rigged.

C'mon, everybody knows the ending to this one already, why hold back?

De La Hoya scored a knockdown at 1:34 of the fight with two huge (comparatively) uppercuts. Shaq's knees collapsed and that was it.

Shaq had nothing other than the left jab and the tie up working for him anyway.

It was a freak matchup like any Pride Giant Silva fight, but I always enjoyed watching the Grand Prix, especially 2000 Pride GP.

Why did Shaq fight a man less than half his size when there are so many heavyweights available who'd probably knock his a** out? And he needed headgear also? Sounds pretty chickens**t to me.

It's not a real fight, stupids. Oscar is out of shape, and he is too small to land anything significant. In a real bout, Shaq would kill Dela Hoya.
