I think he already made 147 pounds after May so any day from now on is as valid as May 3rd ( or the 5th, whateva), starves and drains himself to the limit and spends that day rehydrating back to 159 or something, actually like Cotto does. In what has to do with being safe, the guy doesn't have 154 lbs of solid, compact muscle so he can still have an edge in punching power at 147 pounds... Doesn't have the fight rhythm, the speed or the stamina though.

Old poodle from East LA, no way Josť. De La Hoya may turn into something like that Stephen King's Saint Bernard "Cujo" and lick the boricua rottweiler to death. After all, he is the one to find vulnerabilities in Cotto in that performance against Mosley, so I trust De La Hoya's dexterous tricks.

I don't like Zab. I don't wanna see him get a big payday until he actually beats a top fighter again.

Delahoya needs to think legacy now and fight Winky at 154lbs.

Yeah I remember him saying that. I think he should fight Winky and be done. It would do wonders for his legacy unlike some of the others that are being mentioned.

I remember Oscar saying he would not fight Cotto because his wife is Puerto Rican and he lives in Puerto Rico. Thats a pretty sorry reason, if I was Mexican I would be pissed. Thats pretty much selling out.

Tranny looked emaciated at 154. I dont think Oscar makes 147 again.
Fight Hatton at 160.
