After doing some thinking and studying a bunch of fights, I think Oscar will actually be very tough for Floyd whether it comes down to a boxing match or whether power is the key to victory. Here is why:

Oscar has always had a very nice jab and he vows to use it 50-60 times per round against Floyd. Oscar's jab is snappy and hard to counter. He doesn't lean with it. He snaps it and stays centered. Floyd's defense works wonders against free swinging knockout artists, but against somebody staying centered and popping the jab in his face 50 times per round, I don't see it being as effective. He shells up and leans to his right which defends against most punches, but the jab can slip through easily and after so many land, DLH can start adding hooks to the body and so forth. As long as DLH stays centered and at his range, he'll be able to use that jab without putting himself at risk of getting countered too much.

Now I know some of you are saying "showstopper's done lost his marbles if he thinks DLH is going to outbox Floyd!" Well hear me out anyways. Why did Antonio Tarver give Roy so much trouble? Roy's faster than him and more skilled defensively. The answer is the jab. The long jab of Tarver (which is not as good as DLH's) neutralized Roy's speed.

Roy and Floyd have very similary styles. Floyd is a little better defensively but Roy's better offensively. At any rate, they are similar. That's why I'm bringing Roy up here. If Roy can struggle against a good jabber, so can Floyd.

Floyd's defense is dependent on his opponent getting off balance. He shells up like a turtle and shuts down offensively during that time. SO long as DLH stays cool and keeps centered, Floyd will spend more time in his shell than he is on the attack and DLH will win via decision.

thats a well thought-out post dude but i cant see oscar trying to out-box little floyd. i think oscar will use presure and accuracy as his main tools oscar is also super fast to.

that was an execellent break down and as for my personal opionion if Oscar was to jab to the shoulder andarm of Floyd from the first bell that arm can be dead in a few rounds and would change the fight in the middle rounds like you I really can't see Floyd pulling a decision by backing up all night and not landing clean shots. and like you said when floud goes defensive he tends to lean to the right and that would be a great chance for a short left upper or hook. I will be looking for Oscar to come in at about #152 or so maybe even lighter.

Oscar wins becuz hes gonna be coming foward all night somthin like judah in the 1st couple of rounds. hes gonna take him to the ropes and not let him get out. as we all know floyds dead on the ropes. in less he can slip and slide all night which i dont see happing..

oscar wins flat out

also in the past year Golden Boy Promotions (shane,b-hop,barrerra, oscar) have been to tought and to smart as a team!!! IM positive oscars gonna be sparing with shane to get a feel on speed simular to floyds....

We'll see. I just hope that if Floyd loses he doesn't break his damn hand. There better be no excuses after all the trash talking/promotion. I still have Floyd winning.

Id like to see a DLH victory, but I honestly just cant see it happening. Floyd is too quick and smart in the ring to lose to Oscar at this point of Oscars career. He has the quicker handspeed, defense, and movement. It will be another punch and run victory for floyd. Unanimous dec, Mayweather.

Agreed. But I think it will be far more entertaining than the Baldomir fight (although it was tactically beautiful) and I see Floyd popping on Oscar. Floyd is going to frustrate the hell out of DLH and I can't wait to see it live at the MGM. I finally got my tickets.

With Mosley in DLH camp helping out with sparring I can't see the speed to much of a factor. Plus DLH has been in there with people with speed so I don't see that being a problem.

HAHAHA. You must be kidding. Shane is not nearly as quick as Floyd, nor as smart. It doesn't matter who DLH spars with, or who tells him what and so on. All that matters is that he is fighting a superior fighter who will not lose, period. Floyd will win just about every round with clear UD.

Floyd already lost to castillo! I think you mean Mosley is not as fast a runner as Floyd.

Nope, not nearly. Not as fast with hands, feet, or defense altogether. And Floyd didn't lose to Castillo, keep trying to put a dint on that perfect record bro. What happened to ol Castillo in the second fight? Right. Close doesn't give you a W.

Thats funny... The guy hasn't fought a A level fighter in what? like 4 yrs and all Floyd and his fan can talk about is that perfect record. I'm not talking about the 2nd fight. Floyd did win the second fight. I'm talking about the first fight in which many including myself saw him loss. And hopefully we'll find out after DLH beats Floyd(if he doesn't retire) how much faster u claim he is the Mosley.
