    I think Oscar De la Hoya was the closest to beating Mayweather but even then it wasnt that close!!! Maybe a Prime ODLH would of done a lot better! What do you guys think?

    Castillo in the first fight many felt Castillo should have won, very close fight. Didn't really think the Oscar fight was that close 8-4 floyd in that one.

    I dont think a close fight is a robbery even tho those scores were outrageous.

    I had it a draw

    Castillo won that first fight and Oscar had it won till he faded down the stretch.

    Castillo was definitely robbed in his fight with Mayweather.

    Actually just watched the DLH fight again.. Oscar looked like shit.. He wasn't jabbing, and contrary to popular belief, it wasn't because he was getting countered.. He was getting hit because he wasn't jabbing.. he would put his hands high and walk in with nothing and Mayweather would pick him apart.. did the same to Canelo when he wasn't jabbing.. but I think it was the 7th round that DLH decided to jab and he dominated.. and then went back to not jabbing..Yes you are going to get countered by May if you jab.. but May will do a lot more damage if you dont..

    Not really.. he was doing fine.. He hurt his shoulder supposedly in the fight though.. but he was still using it late in the bout so I think he was just looking for a way to explain his performance.. He did good adjusting in the rematch, but the first fight should have marked his record

    Eh, he is damn good. No denying it. Even if he walked out with Justin Bieber.

    Zab, , Shane , Oscar and Castillo all had moments of success.

    I seem to recall Chop Chop catching him with something.
