Default Will Oscars ppv sales and his popularity go down now that he's been exposed.

Has Oscars popularity gone down after those photos were shown recently on the internet or will his fans say I don't care if he's bi-***ual or not, he's still one of my favorite fighters and I will always pay big bucks to see him fight?

No. Oscar is one of those rare marketing sensations whose marketability has never suffered following losses. The recent controversy will be no different. If anything, it will help further promote his cause.

He will be the sport's top draw for as long as he wants to continue fighting.

Expect annual bouts on Cinco de Mayo weekend for years to come!

Those photos look like fakes, and nobody really gives a **** other than having a good laugh at them. Exposed... whatever.

I doubt it matters and he doesn't have many fights left in him anyway. Even if it did matter it would probably only draw more viewers who want to see the guy dressed in drag get knocked out.

Fake or real. We may never know but now the girl who took the pictures has stepped forward and said they are real. Anyway let's assume for now they are real and the evidence is overwhelming that that's the real Oscar. Will his PPV sales drop, will his popularity drop, will he be too embarassed to continue his career, will his nuthuggers ever admit he posed like that even if Oscar admits it. Your thouhts.

He has just attracted a new fan base so I suspect his numbers will go "up".

Another incident that puts suspicion on Oscar. He made a bet, or wanted to, with sugar Ray that if his team had more winners he would have to parade around the ring dressed like a woman for all to see. Now why in the world would he come up with something like dressing up like a woman? Pretty obvious isn't it.

Yeah they threw in a bunch of photshopped pics with the "real" ones to add to the authenticity.

Unfortunatley No! I think it will now gain in popularity and revenue by aquiring the intrest of the GAY community!

I doubt Goldie is a ****.....but the Gay community probably like to think he is a closet *** and would invest time and money into someone like DLH.

And I think he'll keep the female fans b/c you know females.....they like a man in touch with their fem side.

He'll keep the boxing fans b/c he's still a great fighter who offers stern tests to the sports very best.

The only thing I can say that might take a hit is his marriage......He was at the Ritz with a 22 yr old stripper and he was wearing her clothes....how can you explain that to your wife.
