I thaught exactly the same, sounds like kind of "Well, just out of charity I give DLH the close rounds, which normally were also Ikeīs rounds...", but thatīs bs, it was a close fight, no way Quartey won 9 rounds...

I watched the HBO legendary nights, Leonard v Hearns the other night, and a Detroit journalist said after Hearns was seriously hurt by Leonard's assualt during the 6th round "He had never been hit with those type of punches up until then his career, nobody knew how good his chin was".

De La Hoya fought a good battle with Quartey and was floored during the 6th round, before coming back to almost finish Quartey during the 12th, and ended up pulling out a decision. His chin was fine whenever Trinidad caught him flush, which wasn't often. And his chin was tested regularly against Mosley over 12 rounds. All those fights were at welterweight against guys who had very decent power.

Fair enough.


Agreed.

We'll leave it there.

I had it very close.

I gave it to Delahoya by a point. I could live with a draw.

You always give ground and admit your wrong, at times when you see fit. But more often than not your right.

I'll give ground, maybe me saying "you would need to be a Hearns nuthugger or a De La Hoya hater" when it comes to comparing their chins was a bit strong. However, I still think De La Hoya clearly had a better chin as previously mentioned.
No worries Rob
