Well, you can make it with me if you like:) Other than to the bettor,
odds mean nothing.

So what if he has been down ? If it does, Oscar has been down twice,
so I don't think mentioning that supports your case. At least Kostya
was put down by a good punch from a fair fighter. You can't say that
about the nobodies that sat the golden boy on his ***
Roger Mayweather, and Rodriquez.

You really can't have seen Tszu fight to say this. If you have, the
comments are nonsensical. Oscar is made to measure for Kostya, who will
will take great advantage of Oscar's rather flat footed stance.

Oscar has never been hit by the likes of Kostya Tszu. When he does,
he wil run, but will not be able to hide. If it goes the distance, an
easy UD to Kostya. My bet is that Kostya wil knock him cold by the 8th,
as Kostya's superior fitness and ringcraft simply prove too much.
Whatever, it will be a better fight than the Chavez bout.
We'll just have to wait and see, eh:)
