bro, at least oscar has the balls to take on manny. gayweather is just a pussy who is afraid to get his face bones broken by pacman. and oscar has enough balls to fight mayweather. we mexicans can be short and all that other shit, but we pack a good punch to the face. you niggas like gayweather betta fuck off thinking ya are the best. gayweather knows that pacman will knock him down so thats why he wont fight him.

oscar de la hoya is true friend with PAC-MAN. He will train manny to beat the next James “Clubber” Lang (Floyd Mayweather Jr.)

l have mixed emotions about Oscars issues..l feel bad cuz he lost his mother young and she was his # one fan..however, l wish he’d man up and face his issues face to face..he had to rely on drugs and alcohal..Oscar needs to restore his relationship with his wife and really WALK the WALK

@s281jam he will fight pac, pac just has to take the test which floyd and all of his oppentents take, simple as that. As for his dad, you would have second thoughts about ur father if he held u up as a sheild when he got shot when pbf was a child. The ortiz punches were completely legal

Much respect to De La Hoya. Not many people can man up and talk about it. Especially on national television. He fucked up. But he recognizes it and has learned from it.

@billllllyyyyyy1 mayweather is a piece of shit he dont even have respect for his own father what makes you think hes a good person now hes even more of a piece of shit for that cheap shot with victor ortiz any ways hes a pussy ass bitch cuz he wont step in the ring with pacman

@clittwister floyd was the one who fucked those 2. He beat hatton when he was undefeated and oscar at a weight that didnt make him look like a starving bum. Pac fights pbf leftovers

Oscar, you are a disgrace to your race!

MADMAC572 November 16, 2011 at 7:39 am

You have to admire his ability to come out and call it the way it is. A lot of people can’t do that, and certainly not too many who are in the spot light the way Oscar is.

about the point punch trough your opponent..i think is usefull to immagine a color line (straight curve or perpendicular)wich cross your opponent from a point a to a point b;look at how sergio martinez followed a curved line to develop his punch against p williams..it looked like as he was targeting the punisher’s shoulder(look the power unleashed on the shoulder) and in the way of doing that he got his chin..bang..i find easy to immagine that when i’m perpendicular to my opponent..instead
