Diego De La Hoya has not been able to quite live up to the high standards that was set for him due to him being the cousin of Oscar De La Hoya. His lone loss came in his last fight when he was stopped by Ronny Rios in the 6th round. Until that point he had managed to stay undefeated compiling a record of 21-0 but never faced any good fighters. He has also had some struggles making weight in the past. 5 moths after the loss he now faces Renson Robles (16-6) in what is meant to be a comeback fight for him to get his confidence back up and to see where he is mentally. Robles has 6 losses but has only been stopped once and that was against the hardhitting Luis Nery. In his other losses he was able to go the distance without problems.
We see Diego De La Hoya rebounding with a victory here. Robles will push De La Hoya and make it tough on him but Diego De la Hoya will box and land the better shots while staying out of harms way. The Pick is De La Hoya to win a Decision.
