Default Re: Who did Oscar De La Hoya Avoid/Duck?

Orzubek Nazarov for a unification bout at 135.

Not a duck as much as Nazarov being an unknown non-hispanic. I think his southpaw style and formidable power would have made it interesting while it lasted before Oscar figures and sparks him out.

Jose Luis Lopez at 147. That guy could crack and as evidenced by his fight vs Quartey, he also had a hell of a chin. It just wasn't an lucrative enough match-up and if memory serves, Oscar had already gone up to 154.
