View Full Version : Oscar DeLaHoyas greatest moments
04-30-2005, 07:34 AM
I am a huge Oscar DeLaHoya fan. One of the main reasons why he is my favourite fighter is because he always fights the best. What do you think was the greatest moment in his career?
In my opinion it was when he faced Felix Trinidad for the Welterweight Championship in Las Vegas,Mandalay Bay. Although he lost the fight,beforehand he was at the top of his game,he was the best pound for pound fighter in the world and his popularity had reached astronomical heights. Also it was the biggest non heavyweight fight in boxing history in terms of gate receipts and PPV buyrates, a record that remains today.

I also feel this was one of his greatest moments because I thought he outboxed Trinidad and looked good doing it untill the last 2-3 rounds were he just didn't work enough and began running to protect his lead, I still feel he won the fight though.

i think his greatest moment was his fight against quartey even though i think he lost that fight he showed alot of heart and that is why i think it was his greatest moment . if he would of shown that kind of heart against trinidad in the championship rnds. who knows what might of been ...

DeLaHoya only lost that fight because of a mistake made by his corner in advising him he had the fight and to back peddle for the remaining couple of rounds. None the less it was a great bout. He sure took that loss out on Vargas when he knocked him out :)

I loved that KO on Vargas.

Yeah, I saw that fight too. He was dancing around and showing his footwork the last few rounds. But even so, Felix didn't really come to cruch time. I think he should have won it.

I'm not the biggest Oscar fan but I think his best moments were against Mosley I and Quartey. Those fight brought the best out of him even tho he lost. He showed heart and tried to finish strong. He didn't run, fade or slow down with fatigue. That was Oscar at his best IMO.

i luv watchen his fight with vargas
that **** was great
and a movie like ending
that fukin sledge hammer left hook just seemed to put vargas to sleep for a sec
it was great how he jusy sorta toppled over
then how he cornered him and just let his hands go
but i also like watch the fight with tito
cept those last couple rounds
I've always admired Oscar for the way he brings power when everyone says he's "coming in light" or whatever. The Vargas KO was great, but I admire him most for the heart he showed against Mosley.
He's making a good start to his promoting career, too.

The trinidad fight was great but the interview after the Vargas fight, "he got under my skeen" or something to that affect made me laugh my ass off.

I am a HUGE DLH fan. I love watching him fight.
IMO, his greatest moment was knocking out Vargas. That moment almost brought me to tears. The other greatest moment of his for the FANS, was when he was seemingly losing coming into the 12th round against Quartey. He needed a big round, and he knocked down Quartey with a rocket left hook (from memory). I was SO HAPPY at that moment i nearly exploded. I was screaming!
His fight with trinidad would have been the greatest moment if it wasnt for the ridiculous decision of the judges.

Beating Vargas Was Up There With The Best

The greatest moment in Del La Hoya's career is when he decided to become a promoter..

Trinidad was the worst night of his career. He ran like Carl Lewis when he was winning. Hopkins was bad too, when he quit and acted like it was a vicious body shot, but he acted fairly well and some people believed it.
Oscar's best nights were beating Ruelas and Vargass.
