FORZA! my good man! Why is Oscar a slimey snake?


As a promotor, he cares about making money first and foremost, but as a former fighter, he cares, and understands the need for boxers to be compensated, and rewarded more than other promotors like Arum.


And as a boxer, he did nothing but constantly take on the best!

Two seconds of silence from the corner.

1:44 Body shot!!!

Bernard swoops in and slaps at Oscar's sides with a right and a left before clinching, neither of which were caught well by the camera angle provided by HBO - but if you're paying attention you can both hear their smacks and plot out their logical trajectory.

1:43 OH, OSCAR!!

Six seconds of silence from the corner

Knockout punch lands @ 1:37 without Naz saying a word.




It's pretty clear to me that Richardson saying Oscar's name was done to mock him in the spirit of competition, not to warn him of anything premeditated or scripted out between them. Just listen to his tone. "Ohhhhhhh, Oscar!!" as in "I bet that hurt, huh?? Poor little baby..."

It makes Naz sound like a typical kid in the hood watching someone lose a fight on the playground, actually.
Yeah, that's one way of looking at it.

The conspiracy theorist in me wants to say, though, that they planned that ahead of time.

When did you ever see him take a shot that far back, on that spot? (from a 169 lber, no less)

Lol, so he blew some coke? Not that big of a deal. . . He admitted his problem, and went to rehab for a good amount of time. . .


And he has some kinky ideas about ***? He's a little feminine in his ***ual role playing. . . But at least he's banging hot ass females in the process. . . .

Took a dive as a deal to help form Golden Boy Promotions.

Yeah, I really don't. I'm going to assume there were three people in this plan. We'll go with DLH, Hopkins, and Nazim. Just looking at the three we have De La Hoya. Arum has said De La Hoya isn't a smart guy. Based on the his twits (Twits? Tweets? Tits? I don't know, that twitter thing) that people post on here every once in awhile, his spelling is quite shocking. Then, the way he has handled his business at Golden Boy....eh, that doesn't help.

Then we got Hopkins, well, again, I'll cite twitter. His spelling is quite shocking. And, of course, this is the same guy who thinks Australia is Europe. Nazim? Well, he seems like a smart guy. But, still, two out of three I don't think are too bright. So, I could sort of see them all hunkered down trying to come up with a plan. And, of course, their plan is Nazim yelling body shot, body shot, etc. etc.

He took a well placed shot from a markedly bigger man. I didn't look at it as fishy....maybe I should have .

Look at the video carefully. When the punch lands Oscar's body is lifted into the air, both feet leave the floor at the same time. As soon as his feet the floor again he collapses. Typical reaction for a well placed body punch from a bigger fighter. Although the punching the floor was all theatrics. Remember he was a boxer/"singer"/"actor"/promoter.
