Hold on buddy, neither me, nor that poster you quoted said he beat them. You did however say that Oscar along with many other great fighters never fought a prime great. Well that's a lie. Oscar did fight a prime Mosley & Tito.

B-Hop, well that's another conversation totally. It's been damn near a decade since that fight & B-Hop is fighting on the world class level, against naturally bigger men. I would find it hard to argue that he wasn't in his prime then.
