Default Re: Is De La Hoya overated?

I've never subscribed to the argument that a fighter is a "quitter" for pulling out, even though I've never done it.

If he's come, fought hard, taken a pounding, he has to worry about his career and about his health. Oscar pulled out of the Pacquiao fight later than I would have been okay with had I been training him.

The second it becomes crystal clear a fighter isn't in with a chance and is simply a punching bag, every punch they allow themselves to take afterwards is a punch too many.
