The 48-years-old Oscar hasn’t had an official fight since 2008. This was when he lost a match to Manny Pacquiao. Currently, he is training to make a return with a bang!
From 1992 to 2008, Oscar enjoyed fame and success as a boxer. His performance during those years contributed towards his image as a great boxer. Everyone is excited to see if they will get a glimpse of his former glory with the coming fight.
