    Yea, I was wondering why no one is talking about this. I actually wanna see if DLH can KO him.

    It will be interesting to see how DLH looks against someone other than Mayweather

    So hypothetically, what would happen if Forbes actually beat DLH? The PBF rematch would be off right?

    i'd be very surprised if DLH doesn't stop him, not necessarily by koing him cold, but forbes shouldn't make it to rd 12

    ok for you i'll add an addendum

    recently after bhop, DLh only fights guys smaller than himself and future talks of fights consists of tiny guys such as mayweather, hatton, pacman, and now cotto

    it seems as though, recently, DLH doesn't want to fight guys his own size.

    happy?

    How big do you believe DLH is? You know he started his career at 130 and 135lbs right? His best weight was 140 or 147. Cotto's a much smaller opponent? Who should DLH be fighting, Kelly Pavlik? Joe Calzaghe? Even 154 is a stretch for DLH. Ive never heard of Oscar fighting Pacman, Hatton is a natural 140 lb fighter. Give me a break.

    Fighters move up in weight classes as they age. DLH hits 154 without a problem these days.

    the national anthems are light years ahead of the Calzaghe Hopkins fight with Ray J and Tom Jones.

    154 is a stretch for oscar? oscar can't even make 147, has tiny guys move up in weight to fight him

    you my friend are delusional.

    and yes, its widely known that oscar wants to fight pacman, do some reading.
    i have no problem if oscar fights these guys at THEIR fighting weight, but he has them come up to his

    he should start fighting guys who actually fight at 154, instead of having small guys come up to 154

    Ray J was pretty bad, Tom Jones was decent.
