Re: Oscar De la Hoya vs Thomas Hearns, 147, somebody gets KO'd, or decision?
Oscar, by his own admission, was nervous enough about Quartey's power that he got real tenative and didn't throw much.
Well, Hearns had a bigger right hand, faster hands, and was simply a better fighter than Quartey (who won at least 7 rounds against Oscar, who did nothing in the mid rounds).
Hearns by decision.
Oscar has a slim chance at landing a great left hook and stopping Hearns, but it isn't likely. Hell, look at how long it took for Leonard, one of the greatest finishers ever, to finish Hearns.
