De La Hoya is very picky about who he fights, and he can afford to be. A
match with him is a mega payday for his opponent even if he only gets a
fraction of Oscar's money.
While he says he wants to avenge his defeats, he also wants to limit his
fights to those he thinks he can beat. Mosley is on that list, Forrest isn't
Oscar has shown he will ignore any calling out from anyone, so Forrest is
probably right in concentrating on Mayorga for now. Once he unifies the
welterweight title he can move on.
But I would bet that Oscar will never fight Forrest.
