Full Version: Trinidad vs De La Hoya at 154...

Oscar probably deserved the fight the first time at 147 pounds.


I think I'll take Tito at 154 to win a close but DESERVED decision this time.


Oscar would start well, but he was noticeably slower, and more flat footed at this weight, and that was probably due to him not having the stamina to dance for 12 rounds. I think by the mid rounds Trinidad starts to find his range, and begins to put some serious hurt on Oscar, closing strong in the championship rounds once again.


Trinidad via close decision(But deserved this time).

There's ANOTHER overrated fighter....one of the most overrated ever, in fact....Oscar De La Hoya.

Trinidad takes the rematch clean at 154.

Trinidad is more overrated then DLH..I'd go with DLH in this rematch since I also thought he won the first fight..DLH had an amazing jab and pretty good feet when he used em..

He didn't really have fast feet at 154 pounds. His mobility wasn't quite the same, and he was much more hittable.

Trinadad i think if he coulda stayed at 147 154 i think would have had a better legacy but as soon as he fought the tougher guys at higher weights he got schooled...if we was a welter super welter most of his career he woulda made bank and had really great fights....why didnt he fight shane at 147 or veron forrest at either weights or ike quartey or whatever i think those fights woulda been really nice to see
PR316
^^^^He was set up to fight Ike Quartey at one point after he tried to leave Don King. Then King sued, and that fight fell through.


Then he was scheduled to fight Terry Norris in 97, but Norris opted out of that fight to try and get a fight with Oscar, and then he lost to Keith Mullings.


Tito's legacy would look better for sure if he would have stayed at 154 IMO and avoided the likes of Hopkins. He would probably have had to fight Winky still though and styleswise that wasn't a good fight for him. But he would have probably had the chance to fight against a Shane Mosley which would have been a great fight.,

I think Trinidad was at his best at 154lb unfortunaltey for him he kept moving up and ran into Hopkins but i think he stops DLH at that weight.

Clear decision win? He got a gift the first time, and was ONLY in the fight because Oscar took the last 3 rounds off. He would NEVER beat Oscar clearly.

Totally agree..Trin got lucky gettin the decision the first time..I had DLH winnin that fight by a couple points(it's been too long to be too accurate)..Either way,had they had a rematch at any weight,DLH would have beaten him even more clearly..

Trinidad also would have been clearly beaten by Winky had he stayed at 54..

Fuck DLH he was straight cocksucker with his olive oil voice & guinea charm. I hate that cunt. Tito should have fought the cunt at 154 with loaded wraps in a 16' ring & busted his head open like a taco.

Oscar wasn't that good at 154 though, and Tito was if not at his absolute best, closer to his than De La Hoya was to his best.

The same strategy Oscar used at welterweight would not have worked because he no longer had the legs he had at the lower weight to stay away from Trinidad.

He would have been forced to fight, especially when the fight enters in the mid-late rounds.

DLH was better at lower weighs and 54 was the highest he was able to go and still win(he lost to Sturm and Hopkins)..Tito may of handled higher weights better but DLH was the better boxer..

He looked ok at 154 in the rematch against Mosley and could have got the win. I still take the version of DLH at 154 against Mosley in the rematch over Tito.

What about versions who fought Vargas??...


I think that Trinidad beats any 154 version of Oscar.
