But I think it is a good fight!

I have my money on little Timmy because he's a huge betting underdog and I like him and I like cheering for the underdogs. Desert Storm baby! Desert Storm!

I still love boxing, but they still need to change some rules. I also want to see them hire former boxers, trainers as their judges.

They need to start a tournament in the Heavyweight Division. The winner will face the K Brothers at the Madison Square Garden.

Mike Dallas Jr took out Javier Castro by TKO in the 6th in a rather ho hum Friday Night Fights on ESPN.

The ring being a POS was probably the most memorable thing of the night.

Yeah, not the greatest night for FNF. Even the stoppage itself was less than exciting.

There is something about boxing outside that I innately enjoy, though.

josesito lopez upset victor ortiz with a 9th round tko. ortiz has quit on his last 3 losses. fight with canelo is off. i hope kirkland takes the fight instead at a later when he is fully healed and/or he stops demanding more money, i think lopez is too small for canelo.

matthyse upset humbero soto with 5th round tko. soto is a good fighter who has fought bums the past few years. matthyse could have been robbed on both his 2 defeats, he belongs among the top junior welterweights. hope he and maidana fights, all-argentine slugfest

Ortiz is a headcase. He didn't just quit late in the fight because of a broken jaw (it really is broken... scheduled to have surgery today), but he was toeing that headbutting/penalty line once again. He caught Lopez with one of the most blatantly awful rabbit punches I have seen in recent years early in the bout.

Lopez ducked his head while in a clinch... Ortiz stepped around him, cocked his fist back and just buried it in the back of Lopez's head/neck. Then, throughout the fight (commentators didn't really note it, but it was there), he was coming up extremely hard with his head on clinches. I'm not sure if he ever made contact, but he was really close a few times and obviously attempting to wield it as a weapon... And, just like against Mayweather, he was digging his head into Lopez's chin/cheek during clinches.

This guy has serious mental problems, I believe, and isn't fit to be in the ring. He is going to really injure someone unless he gets help.

Wow, what a fight. I actually flew in from Houston for this fight and had to catch a red eye back for work at 8am. But it was all worth it. Probably one of the best fights I've seen all year.

I thought Ortiz was just too big for Joseito and didn't have the power to stop him. But man, he broke his jaw. Lopez took Ortiz best shots and just kept coming.

Soto-Mattysse was another good one but ended early. And it was cool seeing Houston's own, Jermell Charlo. Look out for this kid, he's a good boxer.

roy jones gets the split decision over glazewski



most people/analysts had glazewski winning, and he even dropped jones in the 6th round, and convincingly won the rest of the rounds

At one point during the fight in the later rounds on a live odds betting website, Bradley was a 100 to 1 underdog. :
