DLH was looking to fight Cotto had Cotto beaten Margarito in the 1st fight. It was a sellable fight because Cotto was turning into a major star in 2008. Only to get cheated by Margarito's plaster.

Tony already put it on Oscar when Oscar was preparing for Vargas, Tony never let Oscar breathe in there tore him a new asshole ****ed his ribs up which led to the Vargas fight being postponed

IIRC, DeLaHoya bypassed Margo after he beat Cotto and made the Pacquiao fight instead.

At the time, he got a lot of criticism for fighting a "blown up LW" rather than a leading WW.

Mayweather ran from Margarito and Paul Williams.

this myth needs to end.
Forrest wasn't in his weight class at the same time and Wright was a box office fail waiting to happen. Wright's more of a duck than Forrest though.

As to original TS question: DLH was dropping down in weight cuz 147 was where all the stars were. DLH fixed a fight date to rematch Floyd at welter, fought Forbes as tune up, Floyd pulled out. That's when DLH made statement about Marg/Cotto, Marg won, DLH fixed fight with Pac instead. Maybe DLH ducked Marg or maybe not. The world and myself saw it as a duck until DLH got his ass beat by Pac. Anyway, DLH could hardly be considered ducking Marg when two stylistic nightmares were preferred such as Floyd and Pac. Marg would have been a better fit.

Forbes barely took a risk vs Oscar in that fight and this fight was at 150 pound catchweight in which oscar couldnt make the weight in whic he weigh in at 151 pounds. If he had fought margarito at 154 pounds, oscar would have beat margarito exactly the way oscar destroyed big mouth mayorga. Gonzalez was a real good fighter in which oscar just basically was playing with him using mostly his jab.

Lets bust the myth once and for all:

Winky Wright fought at 154 between 1990-2004
Oscar De La Hoya fought at 154 between 2001-2007

Ronald Wright:
154 division
1998- Loses WBO 154 title to Harry Simon
2000- Fails to capture IBF 154 title against Fernando Vargas
2001- Trinidad Vacates 154 IBF title
2001- October: Winky fights a journey man for Trinidad's vacant title.
2002- 2003, fought 3 journeymen level fighters
2004- beats the much smaller Mosley who was champion only because he got a gift from Oscar.
2005-Moves up to MW, beats Tito, Oscar offers him fight, Winky declined.
2006-Fails to capture title against Taylor
2007-Hopkins beats his ass

Oscar De La Hoya-
154 Division
2001- DLH jumps into the division and becomes Champion by beating world champion Javier Castillejo
2002- DLH unifies the 154 division by KO Roided Fernando Vargas
2003- Takes his 3rd Tune up in 10 fights against Campas
2003- Avenges his ONLY TRUE LOSS to a Roided Shane Mosley
2004- Jumps to MW
2005- Oscar offers Winky what would have been his biggest pay day. Winky declines!
2006- Oscar MOVES DOWN to 154 and KO WBC 154 titlist Ricardo Mayorga

The proof is in the pudding.

That was pretty much exactly what happened, I think. Oscar was only there for the big money and he had assumed Cotto would win and he was the only Oscar-money between the two. So, when Margarito won, Oscar was never really planning to fight him, I suspect.
This. Neither Margo or PWill had the draw of Cotto or Pac. So, when the Plaster Blaster took out Cotto, Oscar looked for a new opponent, who ended up being Pac.
