Was the Andrade fight added to the televised portion?
NickBarker
Yeah, JD. I was really happy to see that. You have a pretty good idea what you're going to get with a Librado Andrade bout.

NICE!!!

I was hoping they would add that fight to the televised portion. I am happy they did...getting 4 fights just feels so much better, doesn't it? LOL...

Who is the guy that Larios is fighting? I dont know anything about Linares.
Southeastpaw
I was gunna stream this card, but I broke down and bought it. These guys deserve my $$$$$. HD baby.
NickBarker
The only thing I know is that he is being hyped up as a pretty good looking fighter at featherweight.
T-MONEY
has the first bout started?

I really can't wait to see how Hopkins lands the right hand tonight. I think that's going to be the tale of the fight. Hopkins timing, and accuracy with the lead right is second to none, but he's never dealt with a jab like Wright's.
Southeastpaw
Andrade/Muller is pretty entertaining. This is the opposite of how the main event will be. The lack of defense in tis fight is Gatti-ish.

Bout stopped! Andrade was getting tagged, but his beard is solid. Muller was getting tagged worse though. Ref stepped in and stopped it.
NickBarker
I wish Lampley wouldn't bash GBP for showing this fight. It was entertaining while it lasted; Andrade very well could be the next Gatti-like fighter.

That being said, Muller was definitely outclassed and Weeks did the right thing stopping it as quick as he did.

If someone can do a round by round for Katsides it would be appreciated. I am in Australia and unfortunately at work.

Right on Chico. This is what makes this fight so intriguing. It is like a math equation that Hopkins has to figure out. At this level, it is awesome. We all know that Wink is going to bring what he always brings. But Hopkins can change, and as Warlord said, at this weight, Hopkins is incredible. Not that he wasn't before. I think Oscar was right in saying this fight will be about Hopkins footwork. He has got to put himself into a position and throw the right shots as well in order to open Wink up and expose him. This is a GREAT one for the fans that enjoy the science of the sport. There is gunna be some stuff goin on in there that is gunna be real hard to see.

What a SICK half hour preview show leading up to 9 PM. I love Hopkins in this fight.
Southeastpaw
Katsidis is a trip. Comin out lookin like a Spartan. Walkin out, stoppin, lookin left to right at the crown, moves forward, does the same thing. Then comes into the ring and stares at Amonsot with that crazy helmet on. What a character.

PREFIGHT
Amonsot enters an extremely empty arena first to the sounds of Bad To The Bone and looking like an Phillipino version of Billy Idol. Katsidis enters next wearing a Spartan warrior's helmet with a huge tatoo on his back. Shades of the movie 300. "THIS...IS...SPARTA!!!"
NickBarker
Well, if Katsidis is anything, he's a bit of a dramatist.
koartist
:-) thanks guys.. Katsidis will entertain and win by KO I hope!!
Southeastpaw
Well, one Hopkins won tonight already. DHop KOed a guy named Berrio in the first round on the undercard.
NickBarker
Katsidis plods straight ahead trying to close the distance and throw the big, straight right. The Philippino lands some decent counters, but Katsidis is the aggressor and is landing the better stuff, overall. He looks pretty much like what I would have expected from the Aussie's descriptions.

10-9 Katsidis

Amonsot opens the round with some better work. Katsidis slows down a bit, but then lands a huge right hand to knock him down. Amonsot gets up and Katsidis charges back in. He's clubbing at him in the clinch, trying to take him out right away. Katsidis has a pretty nasty looking cut on his left eye. This is turning into a very good fight.

Good fight between Kat and Amon. Kat knocked Amon down, good shot but Amon got up quick and is steady. But Kat has a bloody nose and a cut over his left eye. Good fight.
NickBarker
It's from a punch. Though between rounds there was a pretty good look at it and it doesn't appear to be a cut, but moreso an abbrasion of some sort both above and below the eye. It's swelled up a decent amount.
Southeastpaw
Damn, we have like 3 rbrs in here. lol
koartist
Thanks Nick... nice job all on the RBR... at least if it goes to the cards we can tally the RBR cards too!
NickBarker
Amonsot is having a better round. Katsidis seems concerned about the eye. It's still good, two way action, but Amonsot did enough to win this round.

I'm getting the feeling that Katsidis is on the brink of getting a bit exposed.
thehype
Oh my goodness my spelling is HORRIBLE tonight.

NickBarker
Amonsot is beginning to pull away during the majority of the rounds. However, Katsidis will land some big shots on occasion and then begin to get more aggressive. He's definitely still in this fight becuase of his power and attitude.

10-9 Amonsot

38-37 Katsidis
NickBarker
Katsidis comes back with more workrate and is hitting Amonsot a good deal more. He's catching glove on a lot of the shots, but most of them are effective. This was a good change of pace round for Katsidis.

10-9 Katsidis

48-46 Katsidis

Do you think that it gets a bit distracting being able to hear commentators at ringside for the fighters fighting? I hear some other commentator all loud.
koartist
Sounds like a typical Katsidis fight... with him loading up. The dude needs to learn how to construct a fight and break down an opponent. He always looks lost when he doesn't get the guy out of there straight up. Fark!
NickBarker
For once, I'm right on pace with Harold Lederman.
NickBarker
Katsidis is starting to throw more and more like he was in the first two rounds. Amonsot is no slouch himself, continuing to land good counters and showing more skill than Katsidis. However, I feel Katsidis is starting to do a lot better than he was two rounds ago and would give him the round again.

10-9 Katsidis

58-55 Katsidis

NickBarker
Amonsot is throwing more than Katsidis at the beginning of the round, but a lot of them are being blocked on the gloves. Katsidis slips over Amonsot's foot and gets pushed down; Nady rules it right and it goes on. Katsidis is taking control of the fight again. He's pressuring him and showing tremendous resolve to come back. I really like the way he throws that repeated, clubbing right hook. It's not a very pretty punch, but it looks so powerful. Another round for the Greco-Austrailian

10-9 Katsidis

Kat 67 Amon 65
NickBarker
Goddamn! Katsidis' eye looks like shit, but the cutman seems to be keeping it at least under control.
NickBarker
This is a, comparatively, dull round. Not too much action from either party. Amonsot probably throws more, but a lot of them are jabs that hit glove. Katsidis throws only power punches, but nothing seems to seriously affect Amonsot. I score this round even.

10-10

78-74 Katsidis

Another right hand...and another lands for Kat. Amon peppering the jab. Big right hand lands for Kat. Amon lands a right hook. 1-2 lands for Kat. Right hand over the top lands for Kat. Better round for Amon, but I don't think it was enough to win the round.

Kat 77 Amon 74
NickBarker
Nady stops the action to show the doctor a new cut on the top of one of Katsidis' eyes from a headbutt. If it's stopped from that, it goes to the scorecards.
Southeastpaw
LOL @ Jim sayin, Good luck to Nady finding a new cut on Katsidis after a headbutt. LOL

And there is a new one. Kat looks a mess, but he seems to be winning, for now.
