Default Re: Is De La Hoya overated?

Still overrated generally. I'll break down what Oscar does well and what he does badly, I'll start with what he does badly:

1. Fights in spurts, he doesn't like to fight 3mins of a round and rarely does. He often looks to use flurries to win rounds
2. Defence and timing aren't too good and against better defences is inaccurate
3. Because of 1 and 2, not a great ring general
4. Weak right

What he does well

1. Fast hands
2. Top class chin
3. Very big strong at his prime weights
4. Excellent jab and left hook, although not quite as good as his fans make it out to be
