Oscar fought just two times @ 130 lbs.

At age 25, Oscar was a welterweight weighing 161 on fight night, and at age 26 was complaining about having trouble making 147. By 28, Oscar had left the welterweight division. By comparison, at 25-26, Floyd was a lightweight weighing less than 140 on fight night, and at 28, filling out into 140 (he looked solid and filled out against Gatti).
Of course, you're right, but it's hard enough getting some people to see that Floyd would struggle with DLH's comp (they don't even want to admit that, despite Floyd himself having trouble with an older DLH), saying nothing of the weight disparity between the two, which of course is relevant.

Floyd is naturally smaller, no doubt. Having said that, DLH puts on a lot of weight because he lives a lavish life, not becuase he is MUCH bigger naturally than FLoyd.
