Oscar isn't overated, but he DID decide to RUN during the most important fight of his career and that sure tarnished his greatness.

Absolutely, that hangs over him in public opinion.

He still won the fight on a competent scorecard.

At the time while watching the fight, I had Oscar winning handily. But, when he started moving and backpedaling. I remember thinking, ` I wish he wouldn`t back into a victory` ... He should have closed the show...

Honestly when this fight happened I rooted against Oscar, but yeah he was whoopin' Trinidad's ass and could've even put him on the floor....but WHY the **** did he start acting like a backpedaling bum the last few rounds?!

That should have been his career defining victory. I bet he would do that one over if he could ...

I think because Mosely style was different and his speed gave Oscar problems...
