Well, you said "Back then everybody watched Oscar, even non boxing fans."

.... but actually most people never heard of him.

Oscars fights were the last of the super fights and he was the biggest draw in boxing including the UK where he fought on SKY PPV. His fight with Felix was called "fight of the millennium". You're wrong and that is a fact.
How many people watched him in the UK on SKY PPV ?
Nowhere near as many who watched Hagler-Hearns and Hagler-Leonard and Tyson-Bruno 1.

I don't care if they called it "Fight of the millenium"... in reality, it wasn't even the fight of the year on SKY PPV in the UK
