True, Oscar did step up in weight to fight Bernard and you have to wonder who gave him advice on that one. Sure, step up, but get a few fights there before you go after a guy who backs up his nickname. That body shot was serious, but I'm still not sure it was serious enough to knock out Oscar. I think he saw the road the rest of that fight was going and he shut'er down. I still don't think Oscar was in that fight.

Pac Man gets in trouble when he has to box. If he's in a brawl, that's his game. That's how he ended up beating Marco Antonio Barrera (one of my all time faves, along with Hopkins). Barrera can brawl with the best of them when he has to, but by that point, I think his constant brawls with Morales had taken their toll.

Either way, should be an interesting bout.
