Re: Who did Oscar De La Hoya Avoid/Duck?
He didn't duck anyone. If he was going to get paid a bundle of money, which he usually did, he'd fight anyone. I agree with the poster who said the guy was willing to fight Hopkins, which says it all. A former junior lightweight willing to take on a guy who has been middleweight his whole career, a guy who was still winning on a consistent basis and only loss at middle was close to Jones, Jr.? That takes guts.
