Welcome to the boards! I agree with your assessment. The manner of DLH's kayo loss to B-Hop was very telling to me, and Basilio could be devastating at either WW (as Tony Marino discovered), or MW (where he was one of only three people to take out another Goldenboy, Art Aragon, in 116 bouts Aragon had). Basilio was one of only two boxers to flatten Kid Gavilan in his 143 matches. (If Basilio hit DLH with the double left hook he dropped "The Keed" with, it would be "Nighty-night, Oscar!") I do think Basilio's 15 round pedigree comes into play here, and that he drowns Oscar in deeper water than you project. I figure Oscar would be outta there in closer to 14 rounds.
