The nearest fight I can think of when trying to figure what this fight looks like is Duran/Leonard I. That fight could have gone either way.
If Leonard/Duran I could have gone either way dose this mean that Duran would beat De La Hoya who I belive to be a lesser version of Leonard? I'm not sure. De La Hoya has been with a pretty good group of boxers. John John Molina, Rafael Ruelas, Genaro Hernandez, Pernell Whitaker, Ike Quartey, Felix Trinidad & Shane Mosley. Only losing to the last two.
Plain and simple Duran was just to ferocious for Oscar..
