Yes the fight was supposed to happen but Genaro destroyed Raul Perez with a devastating liver punch--Oscar quickly backed off. Oscar also announced he was going to fight Azumah Nelson--that fell through as well.

I met him at the press conference for ODLH v Chavez I have to say he is a real gentleman.

Seamus is right Genaro was a solid fighter he had a bad hand and his boxing skills allowed him to win.

He's a credit to the game.
I heard he'd doing better. Is this true? I hope so. He seemed like a real class act.

I disagree. Hernandez was a solid favorite over Mayweather, with the odds doing the traditional narrowing as fight time approached.

He is. His recovery has been nothing short of amazing as he became badly discolored and frail.

I dont think Esparragoza was any better than Chicanito,he hit harder but Hernandez was probably the better boxer.
ODLH was too strong for Hernandez,but I thought Chicanito still won a couple of round. From I what I remember it was pretty close before Delahoya broke his nose. I do agree that he was past his prime when he fought Mayweather,I also agree that it wouldnt have made much of a differance although he would have probably lasted the distance

I think Hernandez is kind of underrated,I also think He is borderline HOF.

I don't know why you bring up random irrelevant fights when another fight is being discussed, either.
Are you dense?

I was playing devils advocate to your "no mas" statement.

A broken nose resulted in a TKO with one of the gutsiest fighters of the past few decades in Irsael Vasquez, similar to the Hoya/Hernandez fight. It was a direct parallel.

Irrelevant alright.

It has nothing to do with the fight or fighters being discussed, so yes it is irrelevant.

And wasn't the fighter who originally coined the phrase "No mas" one of the gutsiest of all time?

I have no idea what your point is supposed to be.

Genaro was a stand up, classy guy; almost too good for this sport.

He was not without talent, and had an excellent ticker when the going got tough.

He only ever lost to the very best, thus he was, as mentioned by many, very good.

Where exactly is your "elaboration"? All you've done is ask me about some random fight I've never seen that doesn't concern any of the fighters I was discussing.

My point since first replying to your post was that, as you said, it's very unfair to label Genaro someone who had a "no mas" moment.

I then asked if anyone would label Irsael Vasquez, maybe the ultimate blood and guts fighter in the game today, a quitter because of what happened with his broken nose.

From what I remember, there was fair amount of criticism for his "quitting." In the lead-in to the rematch, part of the build up focused on whether Vazquez could/would "redeem" himself.

Besides, who was the fighter that the phrase "No mas" was coined for? You wouldn't describe him as a "blood and guts" fighter otherwise?

Neither Hernandez or Vasquez quit like Duran chose to in Leonard/Duran II.

He turned his back and in the very most literal sense quit.
