He'd have to KO Oscar.

Even then the Referee will be counting slower than usual and may just pull a McClelan-Benn move and use his body as a human shield to prevent Forbes from getting to a hurt De La Hoya. Either that or knock him down as many times needed to win counting all other rounds as a loss.

The judges will not score this fight for Forbes and the referee will not let Forbes hurt Oscar.

His chances are slim and none, slim is on a diet currently being treated for anorexia.

hey im with you...like i know Oscar is real motivated as well i just figured that Forbes would maybe turn it up a notch...especially seeiing as how hes trained with roger a little bit and now hes training with jeff.

for the Floyd/Cotto fans...if Forbes wins then the DLH/PBF fight doesn't happen and makes the Cotto fight come even quicker...imo, what do you guys think?

DLH will crush Forbes. Think Mayweather vs Gatti only with more knockdowns and a knockout.

You guys are goign to be surprised. He's going to have trouble with forbes, most likely go to the cards. Forbes has looked great, his last few performance against good comp.

Ive always said Forbes is no gimme for anyone, he can box, he moves well and has a very good chin.

Oscar being the bigger man though he should out muscle Forbes to a UD.

Forbes showed me he could bang with a could puncher when he fought bojado. Oscar isnt nearly as explosive as bojado, but he is much better overall.

Forbes has absolutely no chance.
You never know..he could get a lucky shot. Personally i never seen Forbes fight or even heard of him so that means he's a nobody so of course i'm gonna say De La Hoya will win maybe not by knockout though cause his performance in Mayweather/De La Hoya wasn't so great.

No, he has no chance man. That is why he was selected.
