Default Re: Basilio vs DelaHoya @ 147

De La Hoya loves aggressive fighters. Ruelas, Chavez, Trinidad, Gatti, Vargas. He finds it much easier to trigger off his combinations on come forward aggressors. Only when sharing a ring with slick technical boxers like Whitaker, Mosley, and Mayweather has he struggled to find a good balance of defending and attacking.

When forced to be the hunter, De La Hoya becomes something he really wants his oppnent to be, as he's never been quite comfortable on full attack mode.

Basillo could take De La Hoya's heavy weapons, including the left hook. But I'm confident De La Hoya could stop Basillo late.
