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 ?

Honestly aside from the injury, Sergio disappointed me. Murray got robbed, he was controlling the tempo and even when Sergio would try to make something happen Murray wasn't really in trouble. I think Sergio's power may have suffered alittle bit from the surgury, its the only thing that looked different.

Sergio can only throw 3 punches. right jab, left straight, and right hook. No type of bodywork other than the left straight, he didn't throw any combos to try to break down his defense. On top of that when he backs up he just goes straight back and he makes himself very susceptible to that Right hand which he was getting cracked by all night. His defense was never really good and i never thought he was very slick but dam i didn't think his offense was just limited to his left hand and his south paw stance.

I wasn't able to watch Garcia/Judah, but it seems to have boosted both of careers. Zab still in the game, i wouldn't mind seeing him against Broner.

As for Khan- is he still tryna get the Mayweather fight? Haha does he really truly believe he can beat Mayweather when he's already fighting for his life every fight?
