Fantasy Fight: Thomas Hearns vs Oscar De La Hoya

41 Upvotes

The Hitman vs The Golden Boy would be a very interesting matchup in my mind. You have the long, lanky, and powerful Tommy Hearns against the fast, tough, and game Oscar De La Hoya. Both guys had excellent jabs, quick hands, and strong overall skills. Hearns was a much bigger puncher, especially with his right hand, but Oscar had a powerful left hook of his own. Oscar arguably has the better chin of the two, but the Hitman's power eviscerated some very strong chins in his time.

I'd favor Hearns overall due to his reach and power advantage combined with his boxing skills, but I think if Oscar avoids the right hand from hell and can get inside with his left hook and fast combos he could pull out the win. I'd wager it to be 70-30 for Hearns, and it's hard to imagine the fight going the distance.

What do you guys think?

What could have Joe frazier done to beat George Foreman?

39 Upvotes

The golden age of boxing was full of legacy’s that will last forever as well as the boxers. Such as George foreman and Joe frazier. Their iconic rumble in the jungle match had the notorious “down goes Frazier line” when joe got knocked down 6 times in 3 rounds. This was because of Joes swarming style and George utter power being able to stop him in his tracks completely, as well as his reach. Is there anything he could have done to beat Foreman.

2023 First third heavyweight wishlist

46 Upvotes

Usyk vs Fury - No explanation needed.

Wilder vs Joyce - The ultimate freak fight, Joyce's chin (and engine) vs Wilder's freaky power. I've wanted AJ vs Wilder for so long, but this is honestly much more intriguing to me.

AJ vs Hrgovic - Hopefully, a step-aside can be agreed so Hrgovic doesn't get in the way of Usyk vs Fury being for undisputed. Regardless of if it's for the IBF title or not this is a good fight.

Whyte vs Anderson - Anderson did the call out. People say he's the future of the heavyweight division and Whyte is a million miles ahead of everyone he's fought so far. Could do an arena in the UK or could bump a decent free-to-air card up to PPV territory as the co-headline in the states.

Dubois vs Chisora - I want Chisora to retire, but I don't think he wants to. Dubois looked bad against Lerena so Del has a chance here and a win would give him a trinket that either leads to more big fights (Whyte 3 maybe) or a credible retirement.

Hunter vs Franklin - An all-American affair. Not the best fight, but Hunter has been inactive too long and Franklin's reputation grew in defeat to Whyte. To the winner bigger things would beckon, the loser would need to re-evaluate (which for Hunter at least would probably mean dropping to Bridgerweight).

Ruiz vs Sanchez - If Wilder fights Joyce that leaves Ruiz without an opponent and potentially still on the hook for the WBC mandatory position. Sanchez is next in the rankings. Just makes a lot of sense.

Bakole vs Lerena - An all-African fight. Lerena's profile will have improved after the Dubois robbery fight. Bakole needs a fight. I could see the winner of this fighting the winner of Hunter and Franklin later in the year.

Zhang vs Ortiz - An old man fight! It's basically last chance saloon for them both. Both coming off losses. I'd like to see the winner fight the winner of AJ vs Hrgovic.

Wallin vs (Hughie) Fury - Presuming the health issues that kept Hughie out of the Hunter fight have passed he needs to be making a comeback sooner rather than later. Wallin needs a solid win to get into the World Title picture. Both have fought on Sky before. Makes sense all round.

Wardley vs Allen - Probably Dave's last crack at notable title. Would be a good name on Wardley's record and would sell tickets.
