Sheeeeit, looks like the fight might be in jeopardy because of weather conditions.

Who was the imbecile who planned this to be an outdoor fight in a region known for regular rain/winds?

Looks like they put up a canopy but the top is still open and there's a 70% chance of rain, was a downpour earlier and Steward said the fight might be not go on or at least stopped short. Looks windy as hell there too.

Side note- I always love watching fights from overseas, they go ALL OUT with spectacle. And nice to see Lennox supporting Haye. British boxing fans are crazy though.

I have a feeling that Floyd is gonna do a lot of clinching against Ortiz even though he is a great inside fighter.

Erislandy won the fight. It was a robbery. I think Williams is officially done as a contender. Impressive win from Rios and Bute. I want to see them fight Khan and Pavlik in their respective divisions.

When I heard the 114-114 score first, I thought wow, what was that judge watching. That score turned out to be the best one. I feel bad for Lara. Williams looked shot.

Rios is a beast. He's knocking out all the top 135 guys. It's too bad Guerrero and Soto are both moving up to 140 and Marquez is fighting Pac. Rios might as well move up to 140. I don't know what he was thinking calling out Barrerra though. Rios vs. Maidana/Mathysse/Bradley at 140 would be awesome to watch.

I'm not going to say that this was the worst decision that I've ever seen in boxing history, because there have been some really, really awful ones, but it is difficult to get much worse than that.

Lara had Williams beaten and battered by Round 8, to the point where I was literally flinching and wincing every time one of those straight lefts snapped Paul's head back.

Let's be clear... Lara didn't just 'win' this fight... He quite literally beat up Williams. I'd really like to have a conversation with those judges to hear exactly how they came up with those scores.

The term 'robbery' is overused in boxing and, a lot of times, totally misused. There are fights that may seem to be favoring one guy, but a lot of close rounds can lead the judges to favor a particular style over a guy that is winning his rounds more clearly. This was not one of those fights and, yes... The term 'robbery' most definitely applies.

One judge had it 116-114 for Williams...

I would really like to hear his rationale on that score, in particular. What a joke.


The worst decision I have ever seen is Courtney Burton's SD win over Emanuel Augustus several years ago. This one isn't quite as bad as that one, but it isn't far off.


Another thing... The notion that guys like Mayweather and Pacquiao were 'afraid' of Williams or that he is/was the most feared guy in boxing is an utter joke. Those guys didn't fight him years ago because it made no sense to. He wasn't a draw and, at the end of the day, this is a business.

But, Williams always had flaws. Can you imagine what Pacquiao's straight left would do to Williams? It would be worse than what he did to Hatton.

And, can you imagine Floyd countering those wild, looping inside shots? Or, him catching Paul with shots as he rushes inside?


It is sort of funny that the two most 'feared' guys from a few years ago (Williams and Margarito) have been completely and totally exposed as inherently flawed.
