OSCAR MAY HAVE TO MOVE UP FOR REMATCH WITH TRINIDAD

If Oscar De La Hoya wants another crack at Felix Trinidad, it will have to be as a super welterweight.

Trinidad said Sunday he plans to leave the welterweight division if he defeats WBA super welterweight champion David Reid on March 3 at Las Vegas. Trinidad wrested the WBC welterweight title from De La Hoya on Sept. 18.

"If there's a rematch now, it's going to be at super welterweight," Trinidad said Sunday during a news conference.

Trinidad said he has nothing left to prove in the welterweight division after handing De La Hoya his only defeat.

Elsewhere, former five-time super middleweight world champion Vinny Pazienza was arrested early Sunday in Pawtucket, R.I., on charges of drunken driving, recklessly eluding police, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer after a minor one-car traffic accident.
