Is Oscar de la Hoya a legend? Part 1

Published

on

Even before fighting Manny Pacquiao in 2008, Oscar De la Hoya has been claimed by
many as a legend already but how true is it?
Even if his devastating defeat to Pacquiao is excluded, his boxing career may seem a
little less impressive than what the hype. In short, it doesn’t live the expectation.
Here’s why:
His tremendous fame appears to come from his 1992 Olympic Gold decoration, and his
ten world titles in six separate weight classes. Notwithstanding, he didn\’t so a
particularly great work after 1997, for by then he started to look not exactly amazing in
his battles.
In April 1997, De La Hoya prevailed upon a problematic 12-round choice Pernell
Whitaker, with many boxing fans feeling that it was Whitaker who ought to have been
given the gesture in the choice instead of Oscar. Prior to that battle, however, between
1994 to 1997, De La Hoya was at his best battling as a lightweight. During that time, he
won the WBO and IBF lightweight titles and beat any semblance of John Molina, Rafael
Ruelas, John Avila, Genaro Hernandez, Jesse James Leija, and Darryl Tyson. After De
La Hoya went up and crushed Julio Cesar Chavez to win the WBC light welterweight
title, De La Hoya began to give indications of slipping as a warrior
In his next battle after Chavez, De La Hoya battled against Miguel Angel Gonzalez,
overwhelming the main portion of the battle however at that point wearing out, and
blurring seriously in the second 50% of the battle. In the last six rounds, De La Hoya
looked unfortunate, running continually from Gonzalez and getting his left eye seriously
puffed up from Gonzalez\’s hard shots. Before very long, De La Hoya would scarcely
beat Ike Quartey after again blurring in the last piece of the battle as he did against
Gonzalez. In the middle were battles against the blurred Chavez and Hector Camacho,
the two battles being basically inane on the grounds that they were coming past the
primes of the two contenders.
