Oscar De la Hoya a legend Part 3


This is the third and last part of our series in looking back to the career of Oscar De la
As far as I might be concerned, that is had the chance to be one of the more awful
choices I’ve at any point found in my life. Sturm beat the hell out of De La Hoya, puffing
up his face and showing that De La Hoya should not be battling in the middleweight
division. Whatever the case, De La Hoya was taken out in his next battle, a ninth round
TKO to Bernard Hopkins in September 2004. Hopkins dropped De La Hoya with a body
shot that left Oscar moving around on the material, beating the mat in aggravation and
Following that misfortune, De La Hoya required off two years and got back with a 6th
round TKO over the blurred Ricardo Mayorga. On the off chance that this battle had
happened three years sooner, it would have likely been De La Hoya who was halted as
opposed to Mayorga. In any case, when that De La Hoya got to Mayorga, he was a
simple shadow of his previous 2003 title structure. De La Hoya would then re-visitation
of the ring in 2007, losing a 12-round split choice to Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The battle, similar as the Trinidad session, showed Oscar beginning solid and afterward
blurring gravely in the last six rounds. At long last, in De La Hoya’s last session, a 12-
round consistent choice over a lot more modest Steve Forbes, he demonstrated that
he’s sufficient to beat a decent B-class light welterweight – barely the sign of an
unsurpassed incredible, if you were to ask me.
