The dude just needs to avoid fighting southpaws or slick boxer types.

He needs to run as far away from Martinez as possible. Though Lara deserves a rematch, it would be in the best interest of Paul if that didn't happen.

While it's true that Paul's stamina really plummeted in the Lara fight, I think that was due to him chasing Lara around and eating all those straight left hands.

It's clear that Paul has trouble defending against the left hand from a southpaw, and it's also clear that he struggles against slick fighters who potshot. But there's plenty of opponents at 154/160 who don't fit that description and who can give us some great fights.

Cotto, Alvarez, Chavez Jr., Angulo, Margarito rematch, Wolak, etc... All would be fun fights to watch.

I just watched it and that was an atrocious decision.

I don't see how anyone can justify that that mess.

I have a problem with them suspending the judges.

There were 6 rounds that I felt could've gone either way in the fight:

Rounds 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12

This sets a bad precedent. Pretty soon every close decision might result in suspended judges. It should be a complete and total robbery for them to suspend judges: Holyfield/Lewis I, Casamayor/Santa Cruz, Shumenov/Campillo II, Whitaker/Chavez, De La Hoya/Sturm, etc.

Fights in which there was no possible way one fighter could have won 6 rounds.

I scored the fight for Lara, but I don't regard the fight as a robbery.

If there's at least 6 rounds that were close enough to have gone either way, I don't consider those fights robberies.

Marco Huck stopped Garay in the 10th round.

Juan Manuel Marquez scored a sensational Knockdown on Ramos.

oh man, my polish brother Paweł...
was an entertaining fight! But since I really thought he's some $hit who deserves an title shot asap, I'm a bit disappointed. He didn't look really skillful. Can't question his heart tho
