Default How much effect did Oscar De La Hoya had on Floyd/Manny being superstars?

How much effect did you think Oscar's fights with them and marketing of them had to do with Floyd-Pac being the superstars that they are today?

It helped Pac more so than Floyd imo. Everyone has always hated Floyd... Nothing new. He was a big name by then. More people learned about Pac though. People could barely spell his name up until then lol

A lot of course, no fanboy can deny that.

But they were destined to be superstars, just needed some one to trigger it.

It's like when you are born with a genetic problem that is triggered by something, like stress. You are destined to have it, you just need something to pull the trigger. Mayweather and Pacquiao were stars who needed to be put on stage and Oscar did that.

You didn't see Mosley becoming a million-PPV-A-side fighter, or Hopkins, or any one else. It was only Mayweather and Pacquiao.
