A little recap and some thoughts on whats happened this weekend.

1) Something was not right in Martinez's win over Murray. I am not jumping on the "hes getting old" bandwagon but I am starting to think he is losing a step or two. He sometimes has moments where he looks like an ordinary fighter. This saturday he had more than enough of them.

2) Zab Judah lost but he is NOT done yet. To me he looked pretty damn good against Garcia. Danny will give everyone a run for their money but I think Zab showed us that Danny is beatable if you tag him good. The dude just stops punching when hes hurt. Literally!

3) Amir Khan won a close decision over Julio Diaz. I wholeheartedly disagree with the decision (I had it 115-113 both times I watched the fight) and you are more than welcome to disagree with my scoring as well. To me Amir looked very limited and uncomfortable. Some people saw improvements in his D. I didn't. The only thing I liked was his jab - looked strong. I have never heard about Diaz before and...shame on me. Solid fighter!

4) Arreola came in overweight and looked terrible against Stiverne. Although I am a fan of his, someone who seems to be unable to control his weight should not be involved in boxing period.

5) Speaking about overweight....Toney lost a narrow decision against Browne and should retire.

6) Audley "The Glass Ass" Harrison was koed in the 1st by Wilder. Deontay was swinging like a windmill !!! Nuff said.

Toughts ?

I'm a Arreola fan but he needs to make some drastic changes. I almost feel bad for him because it's apparent that he really wants to be HW champ but he's going to need the biggest make over in Boxing history for that to happen.

Martinez has lost a step, some may blame it on the knee surgery but I think defensively he was there to be hit and Murray obliged him on numerous occasions.

I didn't even pay attention to the James Toney fight but when I saw the images of the fight and saw that gut, I knew he had lost. He resorted back to the same stuff that started his downfall in the first place. I really want to see Toney hang the gloves up but I think he still has money problems so I expect to see him fight on

Khan was Khan, I don't think we'll see Virgil's true impact on him until he gets into another big fight, which probably will be sometime later this year. Deontay Wilder did what he was supposed to do but those punches at the end were ridiculous lol...he needs some work. He is clearly talented but it's something I can't quite put my finger on about him just yet

Zab and Danny gave a great show last night. Zab exposed some flaws that no one knew about Danny until now. Zab's stock has went up even in a loss because he performed in the face of adversity, overall it was a great night of Boxing and I'm surprised I got through it all but it was well worth it
