On your second point, I agree completley. I think if Manny and Juan fought again it would be a close fight. Some people just give other people problems, and I said that.
On the third point I agree again. Oscar's age was his worst enemy. I was not trying to compare how Oscar performed against Manny to how Manny would perform against Floyd. I was actually trying to combat that same type of mentality against those who have tried to use Manny's performances to discredit Floyd.
I think he would have looked bad right after Hatton and if his comeback fight wasn't delayed, something tells me Floyd needed a bit more time.
Missed ti when you said it or probably over read it, look we agree cheer up =P
To be honest I think Oscar was pretty much done prior to both his encounters with Manny and Floyd. He was definitely showing signs of wear and tear in his previous fights even though he didnt fight much anymore.
Floyd said Oscar was tough cause he threw so much, and he said Hatton was tough because he kept on coming. In that sense were pretty much talking about Manny and his style.
Floyd should be worried
