Oscar flattens Hearns before the 9th.

I'd expect Hearns to win a decision. Excluding the Pac fight, De La Hoya was never even that close to being stopped at 147. The least he should do is last the distance.

he never fought a guy as fast as Hearns who would be picking him apart with the jab. I think Hearns would pick him up and down with the jab and land the right somewhere about 7 or 8 and stop him. Or win a UD. Oscar is great, but Hearns was not the style for him. Out of the fab 4 the one guy he could beat come closest to beat is Duran. But Oscar does not have the lateral movement of Ray, but he does have quick hands which could counter Duran with if Duran came close and then he could tie up Duran. The Duran fight at welterweight is a pickem fight and maybe leaning to Roberto. Oscar is not as hard a puncher as Hearns, and does not box and have the handspeed of Leonard or the physical strength of Hagler or the defense of Benitez. He was all around a great fighter and a fast handed guy with a great counter left hook and a decent jab.

I think Oscar would beat Duran and have a very close fight with Benitez, slightly favoring Oscar.

Duran hald the weight well and could fight at 160 and 168 better than Oscar. I think he would be too strong. Benitez would outbox Oscar at 154 in a closer fight than Duran, but he would win a decision. Oscar was great at 140. 147 he was very very good. And at 154 he was very good also but a little less. Benitez almost peaked at 154.

I loved Oscar at 140, but at 147 or 154 he struggled with elite fighters. And Quartey was not elite, and Vargas certainly was a good fighter and fought with such heart but he was not great.

Im with you..Duran was to strong for DLH, and he would have for sure had his hands full with Benitez.

140 and 147 was DLH's bread and butter though!..
