How so? De La Hoya started at 135. He was really a welter that was burning himself to beat down much smaller guys, though. So he's a former 147 that moved to 154 and failed at 160. So it would REALLY be like De La Hoya winning a middleweight or supermiddleweight title in his career. Still very impressive, but not the impossible like De La Hoya winning a heavyweight title.
Shit. Shane Mosley moved up two weight classes and beat who was at the time "the man" at welter. That would be equivilent of Hatton moving up and taking out a 154 pound unified champ.
