where was his bravado against b-hop and trinidad. Oscar is a joke lets see him go to 147 and challenge margarito, williams, and cintron guys who are his size and see him talk about banging.
Good post. He should go back down. He wasnt really doing anything at 154. I doubt he wants to fight ntaural 154 lb'ers either. So he is better suited for 147 where fewer fighters in that divison know how to box and carry solid power.

especially when you factor in that Tata's chin is granite and Tito's was not so...also the fact that Oscar had comparable power to Tito in his left hook, while Tata outweighed PBF by over 10 lbs on fightnight...

Am I the only one who thinks that the DLH v. Mayweather match was exciting?! I must've watched it some 50 times now.

Oscar took a beating in that match and there's all I can say about that. If he wants to fight in a phone booth he'd still lose.

I do wanna see a rematch however. Oscar gonna get ktfo. However, we all know that Oscar isn't willing to get hammered like that again.

You call that a beating ? He looked like he was in a cat fight ..And Floyd would never fight him in a phone booth 1 no real reasosn for it and 2 he knows he would get knocked out .And hammered like that did you ever watch the first fight w/Mosley ?

It was a decent fight.

A lot of people worried that it would be a one-sided stinker, so the general consensus (around here) immediately afterwards that it was a pretty good fight. Now it's being called a lousy, boring fight.

It was suspenseful and good enough when it was live, but the replay value isn't all that good. Kind of like Oscar's fight with Quartey, only that had more suspense because it was closer (and even though that fight only had 2 good rounds, it still had more action than PBF-DLH).

Oscar doesn't want to fight Floyd for all the reasons he mentioned. He wants to fight someone who will stand in front of him meaning w/his size and power he will have an advantage in most fights. He's not looking to fight anyone w/Floyd's skillset again

What he got against Floyd was a guy who could move, who was faster, smarter, and just better. Floyd fought a beautiful fight on the outside, and when he would become offensive. Please someone in here tell me what Oscar was doing when Floyd was offensive? He sat back and got tagged, and didn't do to much fighting himself! Then when he would get Floyd against the ropes who dished out the better punishment? Oscar swung more that's for sure, and it looked good to the crowd, but he took more punishment than he dished out. He was hurt by a nice body blow, in the 11th rd I believe, and was buckled in the 5th. Oscar had moments, but he clearly lost a fight that IMO wasn't close. The only damage done that fight was by Floyd!

I don't blame Oscar

It wasn't a vicious beating, but it was a beating nonetheless. Oscar struggled to escape Floyd's jab, left hook, and straight right hand... not to mention the right hook.

Oscar was tough, he took the shots well and kept coming. He put up a decent fight, but he was no match for Floyd Mayweather that night.

Its ok when it suits him.
U are exactly right on that This rematch could happen though, because DLH was trying to fight Hatton next year in May, but a lost to Floyd would cut that short. Which mean a possible rematch. Unless Cotto beats Mosley, then DLH would probably challenge Cotto.

cool let me know which rounds you gave him because anything other then 7-5 mayweather is being biased and giving oscar credit for doing nothing effective.
