PERHAPS no other boxer better represented the ‘90s than Oscar De La Hoya but the criticism of the East LA icon will always be that he lost the big ones. Some of those losses were controversial, though. Turn the close defeat to Felix Trinidad around, reverse the second loss to Shane Mosley, and say he managed to hang on for a draw against Floyd Mayweather and you have a much-enhanced résumé compared to the one he retired with.

To see where Oscar’s placed and how the rest of the top 25 boxers in the last 25 years stack up, buy the latest issue of Boxing News magazine:
