I think a lot of people underestimate De La Hoya's chin, he took some good hits in this fight.snidley said:I thought that was a good fight. I was surprised that Vargas was controlled as he was in the first few rounds. I am still not sure if he really had De La Hoya in trouble or if it was just Oscar's usual fear of being hit.
I would have let that go for a little longer though. The ref was justified in stopping but given the bad blood and Vargas's performance against Trinidad, I would have let him get up at least once more.
Vargas was a complete punk for leaving the ring afterwards without acknowledging Oscar.
I don't think Oscar will fight Forrest, he has too much to lose.
I don't question De La Hoya chin, I just don't think he likes getting his face marked up. Sometimes that means he'll coast and not press when he has the advantage (read Trinidad). Of course, that is the smart thing to do because he won't sound like Riddick Bowe in 10 years.Flyboy said:I think anyone who questions De La Hoya's chin must not remember when he fought Chavez a few years ago. That was brutal!
I heard about it, he finally gave some respect to De La Hoya. I felt bad for Vargas after he got knocked out( probably because people say I look like him ), although I was rooting for Oscar.Kira said:Did anybody watch the interview he gave on Thursday?
