If you noticed, against Forbes, DLH through jabs in all 12 rounds
winning all of them. Agains Pac, DLH looked physically weak.
You are the first fan saying that Floyd did not fight the rematch
for the reason that you mention which I never heard before.
Most common sense boxing fans, understand that when a fighter who hasn't fought at a weight in 10years, suddenly tries to move down, and is so drained that he only weighs 145 on fight night, that's he not severely drained and he's very susceptible to being stopped. Oscar at 147 was drained and shot to ****. Hell, even at 150 he was drained. The remach was going to be at 147 and in hindsight seeing how drained to **** Oscar was, Floyd would have stopped him.
