For real. I think a guy who fights and promotes a successful company for a living has other things to worry about than people on message boards calling him a bully and a girl.

I agree a fight with Margo (who would be very comfortable at 154) would be a great fight, and not a sure win for Oscar. Whatever the outcome it would be a hell of a fight. I understand that De La Hoya wants to go out with a win so maybe a fight with Margo would be a little too dangerous for him, but I agree that fight would make sense and a lot of money. I know I would buy it.

Floyd Mayweather got chewed up on these forums for not fighting a guy that is just getting recognition(Cotto) Didn't Oscar say he wanted tough fights? So why not fight the baddest dude on the block right now?(Margo) I think it was only a matter of time before Cotto lost, but I don't think Oscar expected Cotto to lose being that they had a "so called" date in december. Margo's washes Cotto up and it's like Margo doesn't exsist to him. He's choosing a guy that's 25 lbs south(Pacman) I was actually a Delahoya fan before all this fighting Pacquiao crap

Isn't this a boxing website? Where people talk about "boxing" and "boxing" issues and TALK about "boxing" and express opinions? Does Floyd Mayweather care that people online bash him everyday and call him names? I don't think so. Who the hell cares what Oscar would think of this thread? It's about "boxing" isn't it?

The reason Oscar even considers a fight with Paq is because he knows somebody will always buy these bullshit fights. Jones-Trinidad, Vargas-Mayorga, Hopkins-Anyone, are prime examples. Stop doling out for nostalga fights between former players, and demand top quality matches. Supply and demand!

I never argued otherwise. This fight is a circus.

But I don't expect The Golden Fishnet or the Swiss Banker to care.

Neither do I. But none the less, it's about boxing.

I think De La Hoya knows deep down that at this point in his career he can't beat Margo. From an analysts stand point its not a mismatch or a sure thing Margo would win, but I dont think Oscar would have full confidence in winning that fight. None the less it would be a great fight and as fans we want to see the best fight the best, not the best at 130 fight the former best at 147 lol.

It just seems to me guys like Ivan Calderon, Brian Viloria, and Vic Darchinyan would have a good shot at Oscar right now

Why a great fighter like De La Hoya who hasn't fought below 150 in over 6 years, would want his last fight against a natural 130 pounder is beyond me. Pacman has just went up to 135 and did very well, however I dont think he is planning on moving up again for some time. I thought it was somewhat silly for Mayweather (who in my opinion was a natural 140 lbs at the time of his fight with Oscar) to make that fight with De La Hoya. A fight with Pacman is a much bigger size diffrence then the mayweather fight, we are talking about 4 weight divisions apart! Where the hell would they meet at for both men to be at a comfortable weight anyway? I doubt pacman will go above 140 and you know Oscar cant get down below 147 without draining himself and losing some stamina after 8 or 10 rounds. I think this idea is just ridiculous. De La Hoya should go after a Shane Mosley or Winky Wright type of fighter, someone his size.
I think Oscar knows both those guys destory him, Mosley did it to him in his prime and Mosley is less shot than DLH, Winky would beat DLH anytime in his career and that's why he ducked him after Winks has called him out hundreds of times publicly so forget that one, DLH best shot would've been to fight the smart fight against Margo and it was I a fight DLH had a decent chance in winning and would've gone out with his fans respect regardless of the result
