CONCLUSION: As you can see, Forbes has a punch that does very little damage. Once it gets past the fifth round, he’s got very little chance at all to knock out an opponent, with only one stoppage victory in 38 total fights. De la Hoya’s KO figures are more impressive, but it should be noted that he doesn’t generally take out opponents very early (four first-round KO’s in 43 career bouts – or 9.3%), and has taken out 10 of 20 opponents since he moved up from 140 pounds to 147.
