You disagree with yourself?

Oscar wasn't a natural welter either...more a 140 pounder I reckon.

Hearns never displayed any weakness due to weight draining really...He tore through a pretty decent list of opponents in his reign but it's true he was always going to outgrow the division.

Hearns made 145 at around 11am the morning of the SRL fight and was comfortably ahead of Leonard after 12 rounds...Id assume he would only fight Oscar over 12 and I'd assume he would likely have 24 hours to make the weight.

And you have you forgotten Oscar's stamina issues around 147?

Tommy beats him no worries.
