    Just like he brutally knocked Canelo and Jacobs out right?

    They were naturally larger? Oscar would get folded.

    Unless you think Oscar beats Golovkin, does Oscar beat Golovkin? Just say yes or no so all your buddies here on ESB can call you a MORON.

    I don`t know but he fought for America at the Olympics, but if he`s elgable for Mexican citzenship then he certainly has Mexican heritage.

    Canelo has a great chin and rides shots better than DLA did and has a better defense also. DLA ran from Trinidad in the last couple of rounds of their bout so a solid punching middle like GGG would be too much altogether, B-Hop stopped the smaller Trinidad too.

    Do you admit that Golovkin would beat Oscar?

    And I hated oscar, I hate oscar and I will always hate oscar. I dont know why, but I never could stand this guy, with his silly smile asking for a punch just in the middle of it.

    But this guy was so good in his prime that it was obvious even for a hater like me.

    Well Oscar was never really a Middleweight so I think he'd be facing a significant size and power disadvantage taking on GGG. We saw what happened when he fought Hopkins and Hopkins isn't exactly a big puncher. I think a prime Oscar could outbox GGG but it would take him fighting a very intelligent fight to stay out of danger. Was the 160 version of DLH who fought Sturm good enough to beat GGG ? I highly doubt it. Could the 154-lb version of De La Hoya who fought Vargas give GGG problems at 160? I think so if he retained that speed. That was a better fighter.

    I think the version who fought Vargas at 154 would give GGG a very competitive fight. I mean DLH's only been stopped twice, both times he was past his best and not at his best weight. I just think DLH had a lot of speed even at 154 and it would be hard for anybody to stop him before he lost a lot of his speed when he moved up to 160. If we're talking the best 154 version of DLH vs GGG it'd be close. But the later "past it" versions of DLH he'd be in trouble.

    Oscar wasn't a ducker like Canelo the Mexican Beef Experiment.

    He would have struggled against some of the 160 pounders but beaten most of the rest in his prime.

    The Pac fight would have been better money than Margarito. He miscalculated Pac's ability and paid the price.

    Jacbos has a glass jaw compared to DLH chin, it's called skills that's why they could hang with GGG, GGG is only good at knocking out cans

    I hate Oscar, I can’t help it, I try but that smile of his creates a reaction within me where I feel like slapping him with a object made from heavy metals.

    I know it’s wrong why do you think he is still smiling?

    Yes he was a very good highly rated boxer that I enjoyed watching.

    That has nothing to do with his smile.

    Just for the record I felt this way about him long before the fishnet pic started making the rounds.

    Because he knows he should be in jail and he's a free man stealing millions from mexican fanboys through his boy Canelo

    Wouldn't you smile?

    No because the pain inside of me from stealing millions from Mexican fanboys would destroy me from the inside out.

    Well some people have no conscience.

    Oscar also smiles knowing he never did have to fight in the same era as GGG.

    For had he done so, GGG would have wiped the smile off his face and turned it into a grimace.
