[quote=LittleRed;14184531]Not to go of topic but pep never beat a top 10 guy post Saddler.

Overall record against top 10 opposition: 27-8

Before Saddler: 24-1[/quote

Sounds familiar.. Comin into his fight with Tito, DLH had faught 18 champions, who he either beat, or retained his title, to me thats phenomenal

At 140 pounds, I think DLH is better than all the guys I mentioned above in their best divisions.

Oscar rarely cleared the confusion from his big fights by offering rematches, which was kind of disappointing, but he did face a lot of quality guys regardless, stage managed as his career was.

Personally I'd call him great.

Not top 50 great, but great nonetheless.
If Ike is just of good as WW than any..Did why did DLH put him on his ass?..Quartey was good, but not that good.

I don't normally see the same for De La Hoya.
Ya..but we should see the same

Who beat Tito first & at his better weight?

Which former SFW gave Hopkins (a former LHW) all he could handle for the first 8 rounds before being KO'd?
DLH had no business fighting Hopkins...KO'd by a body shot...Eeeeesh

So some people have mentions rematches, here are some rematches that would have been nice to see and have no cue why these fights never took place.

Oscar vs Tito
Oscar vs Quartey
Oscar vs Mayweather..( Floyd would have beaten him again anyway )
Oscar vs Vargas
Oscar vs Mosley...( they should have fought one more time..why not?

Why don't you just make 1 stupid post, instead of spamming us with 10 responses to yourself...You have been here long enough to act like a semi-intelligent human being!

I am so sick and tired of you answering yourself and having a conversation with yourself.....

I do it by hand.

And not that way either. My old copy of the boxing register lists whether or not you were top 10 or a champion when you fought them.

Napoles was 23-4. I don't have Whitaker handy. Honestly those numbers don't tell the whole story as there were almost half as many divisions as well as the fact that pep (and guys like him) fought scads of guys who were just out of the top 10 or damned good. Anything above 20 is pretty deep. 30 and.above is simply fantastic. 40 is jaw dropping.

Default Re: Is De La Hoya overated?

Ah yeah, I've heard the register has a feature like that contained in it. I've got a source that actually has all of the monthly's and pegs by exact rating at the time.

Here's Ray Leonard, for example:

1978: Floyd Mayweather, Sr (No. 6 WW)
~ Ray enters WW ranks at No. 8 ~
1978: Randy Shields (No. 4 WW)
1979: Johnny Gant (No. 4 WW)
1979: Adolfo Viruet (No. 8 JWW) @ 147
1979: Tony Chiaverini (No. 4 JMW) @ 154
1979: Pete Ranzany (No. 5 WW)
1979: Andy Price (No. 8 WW)
1979: Wilfred Benitez (World WW Champion)
1980: Dave "Boy" Green (No. 7 WW)
1980: Roberto Duran (No. 2 WW) - LOSS
1980: Roberto Duran (World WW Champion)
1981: Larry Bonds (No. 15 WW) <-- they did Top 15 then
1981: Ayub Kalule (World LMW Champion)
1981: Thomas Hearns (No. 1 WW, Titlist)
1982: Bruce Finch (No. 6 WW)
1984: Kevin Howard (No. 15 WW)
1987: Marvin Hagler (World MW Champion)
1988: Donny Lalonde (No. 4 LHW) @ 168
1989: Thomas Hearns (No. 5 SMW) - DRAW
1989: Roberto Duran (No. 2 MW)
1991: Terry Norris (No. 1 JMW)


#2 Welterweight of All-Time.
