    Not a lot of faith in Oscar, huh?

    I think you are underrating him.

      I will offer a short reasoning post now. Basically, Oscar has not beaten a top opponent (which FMJ is) since 2002. Since that win over Vargas his only wins are vs Luis Ramon Campos, Felix Sturm, and Ricardo Mayorga. Those 3 guys probably are not even top 50 p4p, maybe even more. Sure he looked impressive vs Mayorga, but EVERY good boxer should. Mayorga is a a big name, but the fact is that his style lends itself to getting dominated by good fighters. He is a tailor made comeback fight. You saw it when Trinidad killed him. I was not overly impressed with DLH there. DLH has not been in the ring with someone the same level as FMJ for at least 4 years, probably ever. Combine that with the fact that this will likely be Oscar's last fight and that his money is in the bank and I think the recipe is there for a blow out.
      When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

      • I think Oscar wants to finish strong, and will give his best.

          I am inclined to think that as well. However, even if he does I think that if PBF sticks to a boxing game plan he can dominate.

          • Amir Khan just won at lightweight in 3 rounds with a decent body shot. Manfredo vs Calzaghe yet.

            • Anyone watching, Calzaghe dominating so far behind his jab, he hasn't really hurt Manfredo, but Manfredo looks lost in there. To be expected I guess

              • It's all over! Soft stoppage IMO even though Manfredo wasn't firing back anything

                • That Manfredo stoppage was one of the worst I've ever seen. Anybody lookin forward to Zab vs. Cotto? I think it's gonna be a great fight and if Zab can stay focused or land big shots early on, Cotto's not makin it past the 8th.

                  • I'm trying to go to Zab v. Cotto. Cotto's chin needs to be tested early thats for sure.

                      I think it could be great. I Think Cotto may surprise some people.

                      • I know Zab has his issues, but I can't help but think about how he dominated Floyd over the first four rounds of their fight. I hope Zab can stay focused and in good enough shape to make some noise again. I think he's probably the most naturally gifted figher in the sport. His handspeed and power are ridiculous. I have nothin against Cotto, but I would just love to see Zab perform at his highest level on that big stage in June and pull out a victory.

                            • Taylor vs. Spinks was a joke. It was the type of fight that I pray no potential fan of the sport was watching.

                              Here's my detailed analysis of the fight:












                              Round 1 - Spinks danced. Jermain watched. No punches were thrown. Manny Steward yelled at Jermain iafter the round because Jermain wasn't listening or throwing any punches. Merchant sucked. Fans booed.

                              Rounds 2-12
                              (repeat)
                              When you reach the upper level, your mind body and soul must be one.

                              • Haha, pretty good analysis, who did you have winning it? IMO Cory sneaked it, but I can't complain at the verdict as he didn't exactly rip the title away from Taylor...
