rorschach's picture

Pernell is one of my all time favorites, I have never scored this fight till now. I remember thinking Whitaker won live.

rorschach's picture

Yep, Pernell was screwed yet again. Threw more, landed more, controlled where the fight took place, and dictated the pace. The only thing Oscar did was act like a god damn cheerleader between rounds. Pernell didn't help his case by always acting like he didn't do what he wanted to do at the end of every round either.

Left Eye's picture

I posted my comment before I read yours, but I'm glad you noticed Oscar's cheerleading in between rounds, too.

I don't think I've ever been more infuriated watching a fight, lol.

Running back to his corner arms aloft with that cheesy smile after he'd just been schooled.

Guy's a clown.

Farcical scorecards, 116-110?

DLH was HBO's next big thing, so the blatant bias isn't surprising.

This fight was fought entirely on Whitaker's terms. It wasn't the most entertaining and there were only a few telling blows throughout, but Whitaker's jab and ring generalship were the deciding factors.

I think De la Hoya was given credit for those flurries he threw at the end of the rounds, even though nothing landed. Also, after every round he ran back to his corner with his fist in the air.

So annoying, I really dislike his whole "Golden Boy" image.

If it wasn't the WBC point deduction cut rule Pernell would have won.

He wouldn't have, it was 116-110 x2 and 115-111
