Default DLH vs. Mugabi

John is bigger, but can he outclass the Golden Boy?

de la Hoya would find a way to win, Mugabi had a bit of dog in him...

de la Hoya TKO11

I find it funny that you pick DLH to stop him in the same round hagler did.

It's just like in the Jones-Hagler mythical matchups, people pick Jones by SD......the exact same type of decision leonard got.

De La Hoya could outhustle a Good Middleweight with good to average power. But against a Middleweight who hits like a heavyweight? Mugabi by Mid fight Stoppage.

De la Hoya has better defense than Hagler and would get hit less. His movement secures a UD.

De La Hoya wins late, by 11th round tko, when he makes the necessary changes to handle Mugabi.

DLH UD I think, Mugabi would be the biggest he faced alongside Hopkins, but he thrives on come forward brawlers usually with his shorter quicker punches and his movement. Similar to the Vargas fight but maybe no KO

DLH was just a decent fighter at 154 and above.

Nowhere near the legs, boxing skill, elusiveness or power to avoid taking too many punches against the beast.

The Mugabi that fought Hagler would land massive shots on that static head and eventually obliterate him.He'd walk though everything Oscar throws and the beast knew how to set traps, which would work well against a physically unimpressive blown up junior Welter sized fighter that can't out-range or punch him out.

Post Hagler was a ruined faded fighter-who had never had much dedication anyway- so yeah, oscar could do a Mosley II against him and box to a dull safety first decision win.

I don't know where this idea of Oscar as some sort of master boxer at these weights comes from.

I'd be worried about middleweight technicians the calibre of Griffith, Archer, benvenuti, Kalambay etc against a massive puncher that throws unpredictable punches like the beast.....i wouldn't pick him to beat them, but i'd have my doubts because they lack real consistent heavy-handedness and would have to go plenty of rounds being very sharp.Even Hopkins, who hits harder than those guys and is a huge middle, would need to play it safe.

Oscar? He's not remotely in that class here, physically or technically.I have my doubts he would even have clearly defeated Vargas had he fought him pre-Tito.
