santa cruz/no hoper

mares/ponce de leon


i thought the love rosado bout was clearly the most competitive and displayed a great amount of skill from both guys. the ebb and flow....and subtle adjustments made by both guys made this fight my personal favorite of the night. i picked rosado to win...and i thought he did...but love showed that he is no joke. i would love to see this rematch down the line. both are great talents who will go on to do great things in boxing. in my eyes...they're both winners. their stock went up.

Now that was funny I mean the 179lber went down but couldnt hurt the smaller man, but I think Rosado should of stayed at Jr middleweight

Right. That wasn't a good look at all for Love. I mean Chavez obliterates guys when he has the weight advantage, but clearly that wasn't the case with Love. Smh

he squares up really bad anytime he gets ready to throw in combination. offensively...he's not rotating them shoulders enough to get the most out of his punches.

I peeped that. He cant keep that up, especially if he plans to stay on the fast track like this. Rosado exposed him on more than a few occasions. Watching Love exchange with another fighter is like walking on egg shells. During exchanges, he swung like a kid on the playground in their very first fight.

I believe it is this

I'm hoping that this is the case. For a minute, it seemed like he was saving his hardest punches for the later rounds...smart move, IF you can adjust, control, defend, or worse case scenario, survive the early rounds.

Rosado showed us why he can never be counted out. Dude pulled out the stops in a few rounds and had me thinking that Love was ready. I'm sure that we can agree that Love has a pretty good (not great) chin, but he shouldn't be getting hit as much as he does.
