For all the action and post-fight reaction to tonight's HBO doubleheader. Tonight's World Featherweight Title can only be won by Lopez, as Garcia failed to make weight. If Garcia wins, the title becomes vacant.

In the preliminary, Terence Crawford, the slick stylist from Nebraska, (20-0 record and 15 knockouts.) faces Alejandro Sanabria (34-1-1, 25 KOs) from Mexico.

Nice article here about the pre-fight assessments:

Just watched the fight...Juanma looked like shit. Shame on me for even giving this guy a puncher's chance. I had NO IDEA that those losses had THAT much of an effect on him.

I just watched the fight as well. I think Crawford should stay at 135 and try to clean that division out. Hell if Garcia goes up to Jr. lightweight then maybe he and Crawford could meet each other at a catchweight! Now that would be a fight.

I take nothing away from Mikey in this fight, he did what he had to do. Lopez looked like shit as you stated. He just did not seem at all interested in the fight or even motivated. He needs to hang up his career.

Crawford looked good as usual. Rigondeaux should move up. Hell if Donaire is thinking about leaving the division you could have a super fight with Mikey fighting Donaire, of course Donaire would need a new trainer.

Good fight, Roy Jones had me cracking up with his "good things" and "bad things" comments. I hate HBO commentators. I really do.

You're right, he didn't seem motivated or interested in the fight. Its like he didnt even have a game plan...sad. Dude was straight windmilling in the last two rounds, and missing horribly. He made Garcia look like he had supreme foot and head movement, smh.

I mean seriously, he HAD to know that Garcia wasn't planning on having a long night, because he had a hard time making weight...no need for Mikey to get into the later rounds. Since Garcia is so patient in the ring, I figured that he would stick his jab out there, and Juanma would counter it all night and make him switch up his strategy. But nope... he went for broke, from the opening bell.
