Tito Mosley: I cant picture this, I'd say a toss up

Casamayor SD or otherwise. Casamayor's craftyness, counterpunching skills and solid chin would be tough for Mayweather, and this fight wouldnt be an actionfest for sure. And wouldnt be the prettiest boxing contest either. Mayweather's speed and skills would make it equal or giving him a little edge. SD or draw

Roy Jones UD. I just dont think a prime Roy Jones would be outsmarted to the point of losing a fight. As ugly as bernard could make it, roy's phisical tools would get him the win in the end.

De La Hoya, SD. I think DLH was more versatile than Mosley and would have the movement and angle to make Vernon pay for his straightness. A very disputed boxing contest with DLH getting the nod in the end.

Winky Wright UD. I dont think Oscar would have the answers against winkys polished defense and punishing jab. Winky would be the bigger man, with the reach advantage, the more consistent fighter.

Good thread.

Mosley UD : It would be like Oscar/Tito but for 12 rounds non stop.

Floyd by TKO : He was a beast at 130 and the speed, skills and power would have been too much for Casa. Great competitive fight until the stoppage though.

Roy UD : He would have the advantage in size and power not to mention his superior skills.

Oscar UD : I see him outsmarting and outworking Forrest.

Winky UD : He would impose his will on Oscar with his consistency and control the rythm of the fight.

Morales UD : Great matchup right there. Morales would eat some nasty counters but I don't think Casa would hurt him and he would win win a decision with his workrate and accuracy.

Nice thread Nate.

Trinidad-Mosley - SD either way.
Mayweather-Casamayor - Mayweather UD
Jones-Hopkins - Jones UD
De la Hoya-Forrest - De la Hoya UD
De la Hoya-Wright - De la Hoya UD
Morales-Casamayor - Morales UD

Mosley by UD if he boxes him. If he trades with him Trinidad stops him
Outstanding fight that would end in a draw.
Jones by UD
De La Hoya stops Forrest around the 6th or 7th round
I think Wright out boxes Oscar to a UD win
Casamayor by UD. His southpaw style would trouble Morales

Mosley's lightening handspeed and footwork equate Tito's size and power. Mosley close UD

Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Joel Casamayor @ 130 (2001)
Great match-up that should have happened, both are technically good, crafty boxers. I think Mayweather's too good and would take a decision.

Roy Jones Jr vs. Bernard Hopkins @ 168 (2001)
Be alot more competitive than the first fight but I think Jones had to much for Hopkins. Jones UD

Oscar De La Hoya vs. Vernon Forrest @ 147 (2002)
DLH would stop Forrest around the 9th or 10th round

Oscar De La Hoya vs. Ronald Wright @ 154 (2003)
Wright is too defensively sound and DLH would have a tough time with him. I think Winky wins a decision.


Erik Morales vs. Joel Casamayor @ 130 (2004)
I'm leaning towards Morales UD.

Two of my all time favourites. Like was said above, toe-to-toe, Trinidad KOs Mosley. But in a boxing match, Mosley schools. Mosley close UD

Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Joel Casamayor @ 130 (2001)
Floyd Mayweather would win a UD. About 8-4 in PBF's favour.

Roy Jones Jr vs. Bernard Hopkins @ 168 (2001)
Tight. If Jones attacks he has a very good chance but if he tries to play a tactical bout he will lose to the Hopkins of 2001.

Oscar De La Hoya vs. Vernon Forrest @ 147 (2002)
DLH via KO.

Oscar De La Hoya vs. Ronald Wright @ 154 (2003)
Winky wins a wide UD. Easily my top 3 favourite fighters of all time he is and I think he defensively superior and will just ease past DLH.

Erik Morales vs. Joel Casamayor @ 130 (2004)
I've never been a huge Morales fan. He's great, but I don't like him to much. Still, he'll beat Casa via UD or late stoppage.

Two things strike me when reading you guys' predictions...

no love for B-Hop circa 2001 and not thinking Forrest would stand a chance against Oscar (especially that he'd get knocked out)

I agree about the Hopkins one.
Yeah, coming off the big win over Trinidad, I thought that one would weigh more heavily in people's minds than Jones over Julio Gonzales. As for the other part of that, I'm not saying that Forrest was all that, but in his prime, he absolutely schooled Mosley twice and I thought he would present Oscar with some problems.

Yep. I definitely think that Hopkins had a huge chance of beating Jones Jr in that period. It was the Hopkins prime and Roy Jones hadn't really fought a great contender in a while.

Forrest is a great boxer and yes, he schooled Mosley but I still think DLH would have beaten him.

Tito vs Mosley - Mosley UD, remember what DLH did to him? Well Mosley does not get tired and he does not get hurt

Floyd vs Casamayor - Floyd UD, no need to explain.

Roy vs Hopkins - Roy UD, Roy is too fast and too powerful should be simular to the first one if not more lopsided.

DLH vs Forrest - Forrest UD, Remember DLH vs Quartey?!?!? Quartey won that fight imo and i know im not the only one to think so, well Forrest and Quartey have simular style altho Quartey is more powerful Forrest is much better and imo would win a comfortable decision.

DLH vs Wright - DLH UD, DLH would steal rounds with flurries and in the end win a decision imo.

Morales vs Casamayor - Morales UD, Morales is better at everything and would win a comfortable decision.

Still, hopkins was beating up a welterweight while jones was fighting legit lhw and knocking them out. As much as Hopkins had improved and was in his more natural prime, so was Roy Jones. In 2001 he was what, 30years old? He was peaking. He would of still out done bhop in my oppinion.
