Yeah, I recorded it and saw it Saturday morning and was disappointed that no one here seemed to have watched it. Absolutely one of the best fights I've seen in a while - a major score for Shobox. I hadn't really heard of either fighter and there was no obvious reason for Showtime to feature either guy as an up and coming star, cause neither will ever be a serious contender at ww. But someone at Showtime had the idea to put these two guys together and it worked out beautifully.
I was a little surprised at the lack of discussion myself. I watched it live. The DVD is a keeper. Great fight to watch. Garcia isn't really a contender. Abregu has been looked at as a contender but he'll never be a serious contender unless someone teaches him some defense. But he sure can punch. No doubt about it.
Fun fight to watch. It's one of those that you just wish would have been on one of the broadcast networks so the masses could have seen it. That's what the sport is lacking right now.
