Default Re: 'Oscar De La Hoya's ATG ranking is similar to Pernell Whitaker's ATG ranking'

Oscar had an impressive resume no doubt but Whitaker was on a whole other skill level when comparing the two, and ATG's rankings should take into account factors other then just 'wins' ie longevity/losses/general dominance.

IMO Whitaker never really lost until the coked up version got hammered around the ring by Felix Trinidad (yes having seen the fight against DLH again I do believe he got the better of Oscar) this shows what a gifted fighter Whitaker was not to say Oscar wasn't gifted and a great fighter in his own way but he did have losses during his prime (Mosley) and he got KTFO by a weight drained Hopkins.
