That was a close fight that could’ve gone either way. I really thought Quartey edged him to be honest. One thing people never ever talk about is how Quartey recovered and went right back to jabbing Oscars head off in the same round. Had Richard Steel been the ref that would’ve ended in a TKO win for Oscar. Anyway, I thought Quartey, Sturm and Sweet Pea beat Oscar so maybe the Trinidad fight was nothing more than Karma. If you watch that fight real closely all Oscar did was shoe shine all night anyway, if Tito wasn’t hurting him he wouldn’t have fought like that in the 12th no way.

I’m going to skip over the “TriniDud” remarks as he is one of my ALL TIME favorite fighters LOL. Don’t wanna go there. But, I totally agree, I was in complete SHOCK when I heard the “decision”…Tito was SCHOOLED and could not get anything going, besides keeping De La Hoya on the move while taking clean, precise punches to his dome. I gave Tito all of 5 rounds, two of which Oscar handed him, AND I am a Tito fan. But as far as “performances” goes, De La Hoya could never (never did) do any better than the night he picked Fernando Vargas APART!! I never cared for Vargas and I was (always) a De La Hoya fan, he was born and raised in East LA, same place I was born and raised, he grew up blocks from where I did….to see him totally DESTROY a roided Vargas was GREAT!!

“. . . failed to demonstrate his [Mexican] heart!” Agreed. that was the tipping point between warrior Oscar and just-business Oscar. nonetheless, NO F’n Way TriniDud took 7/12. he was being Schoooled and exposed and dinged with relative impunity. every combo DLH threw resulted in at least one scoring punch and DLH delivered a Lot of combos that fight. even in retreat-mode he exposed TriniDud’s inability to effectively stalk-and-stun and close the show. Btw, no less a boxing authority than Gil Clancy was ordering DLH to “box” along with DLH’s longtime trainer Alcaraz. of course DLH should’ve gone for the big finish but he also had at-least two rounds to spare. TriniDud was one plodding, flailing, befuddled Mfr that night . . . even with his suspect wraps . . . :twisted:

They fought on a Friday? LOL j/k

Okay. I just went and re-watched the fight, and my views have changed (as far as clarity) a bit, I had it 6/6 with Oscar having a 10/8 round in the 12th. Close close close, but I had Oscar by 1 pt.

You’re CRAZY! De La Hoya CLEARLY won that fight.

Agreed! De La Hoya made a fan out of me that night, I had chills the whole time, he was gutsy, strong, fast, determined and prepared to fight hard for 12 rounds…he was the full package that night. Certainly my second favorite De La Hoya fight (next to his fight against a juiced Vargas), he was damn good against Tito but failed to demonstrate his Latin heart!

DLH earned a convincing “W” that night. a close UD in his favor going into the 12th. only if Ike had scored his own KD in that round could he have pulled off an SD in his favor. otherwise, he was outboxed and most remarkably outJabbed by a prime DLH. even his misses made an audible “whizzing” sound like errant bullets. this matchup is also an example of how bold and ambitious champions go about targeting risky, dangerous, and equally-prime opponents NOT avoiding them. Ike was Good. however, due to some fundamental lapses beneath the impressive “bazooka” pyrotechnics, DLH was demonstrably Better.

Ike was robbed ODH win four rounds Ike won the rest same as what happen to pernell and strum. Only shows how corrupt the sport is.
