Default Re: Is De La Hoya overated?

[quote=Bogotazo;14171140]He's underrated because of a few flops on the big stage. He's faced and beaten so many quality fighters across so many divisions and given so many different looks stylistically. Few ever mention his skills when talking about classic boxers, and while he's not a technical wizard or anything, but he had a variety of tools people collectively seem to overlook.[/quote

De La Hoya came into that fight with Tito had fought 19 champions he Ko'd 14 of them and beat the others by decision. Look what he did to Mayorga after that loss to Tito. And I agree De De Hoya fought many quality fighters, He always fought the best he could get his hands on ( thats something Mayweather cant say , even though he beat Oscar ). But he was more technical than people give him credit for, for the first 10 rounds of his fight with Tito He was given Felix a boxing lesson.
