Re: Is De La Hoya overated?
Oscar was something else.
His biggest problem was he was a ****en big star before his first professional fight. Pretty much fresh out of his teens sometimes his heart wasn't always there. Sometimes it felt like he really wanted to be anywhere else, and anybody else.
But all in all, there will never be another like him.
Also, Oscar is judged harsher than everyone else. The "elites" he lost to have about the same number of losses, and some to fighters one would hardly describe as elite. Oscar's win/loss ratio is about average for ATG fighters who didn't duck opponents.
Having fought anyone who was anyone since day 1, 10x champion, unifying 2 divisions, all that alone says otherwise than he didn't win his fights.
