Just looking at this pic...my prediction is shifting a bit. I'm wondering why Lopez seemed to have been trying to make the 154 limit, rather than coming in at around 150. We all know that cuts and muscles dont win fights, but water weight and fat doesn't help either.

If Lopez stays in Canelo's chest and keep him unbalanced and uncomfortable, then I'm sure he can pull out the decision. If he gets too Mexican for his own good, then we'll see the obvious prediction of Canelo winning.

theres also stretch marks on his right shoulder, there usually gained by either losing weight too quickly, or gaining it too quickly

Good opening rd in the Santa Cruz-Morel bout, I gave it to Cruz based on his activity and he landed the cleaner shots. It was close though
mrchitown
Santa Cruz opened up nicely in the 2nd, the right hand seemed to land at will for him
mrchitown
If this keeps up Morel won't last too much longer. I don't know why he's not giving Santa Cruz more movement, it would definitely help him. The right hand is proving to be deadly, the punch output is almost 3-1
mrchitown
Morel's corner has stopped the fight, Santa Cruz by TKO end of Rd 5

Definitely. Morel didn't give himself the best chance. Santa Cruz would probably still have won, but at least Morel would've given himself a better chance.

He could've moved his head waaay more then he did or at least took some steps to the side to mount his own offense

I like and very much appreciate Showtime doing this segment on Pal Williams, he is such a warrior and I'm glad to see that he isn't letting the accident keep him down

A vacant welterweight belt is on the line for the maidana fight. What has maidana or krass done to earn a title shot. Only in boxing

I gave up on the meaning of championships in boxing a long time ago.

This Maidana and Karrass fight is living up to expectations thus far
mrchitown
That "LATE" flurry by Maidana may have won him the round lmao

Yup. Soto Karass is definitely acting like the bigger guy that he is, although he's leaning in too much and Maidana is catching him.
BigFightFan
Wow maidana has improved since his lat fight against Alexander. He is tying up and slipping punches more. Also he is double jabbing

Yup, He'd be making the fight easier for himself if he wasn't falling in

And Bayless is a straight gangster for taking points from both fighters haha

He landed a nice right and left town immediately after.

Malinaggi is doing a very good job commentating these fights

Karass seems to be the stronger man at this stage of the fight, maidana is in retreat mode
mrchitown
Maidana showed some toughness and he looks better his 2nd time out @ 147. He was well on his way to losing that round even without the point deduction..........Good Stoppage for Maidana

Looks like Maidana was the better boxer tonight and his accuracy paid off. Good stuff.
BigFightFan
Nice stoppage! Great fight! Could be a show stealing fight of the night

Can anyone say rematch ?

You were right that Maidana showed more boxing ability today than he has in the past.
mrchitown
Ortiz jaw still looked messed up, smh
mrchitown
DeLeon is fighting a different fight then anyone would've anticipated

1 thing he should stop doing is telegraphing the left hand and leaning forward when he throws it, he'll get caught with a shot he won't be able to recover from
Cheesey1
Ponce De Leon vs. Gonzalez scrap is a nice boxing match.
BigFightFan
This is Cortez last fight as a ref
BigFightFan
Lopez cracked his ass, this fight is over. Too much power from canelo
mrchitown
I salute Josesito, he got mad heart. He fighting his ass of...he's just too small
Hotsauce
easy fight for canelo
BigFightFan
The corner needs to save Lopez in this one, he has taken a beating
Hotsauce
canelo should go after the cotto/trout winner
mrchitown
Good stoppage, Lopez was game, he wasn't going to fold, he just couldn't keep Canelo off of him. but Josesito was able to tag him freely at times, and Canelo better tighten up that D before he takes on that A-list comp

No respect for Alvarez. they should have given Lopez thet 100K check just for effort. Alvarez needs to fight guys in his own weightclass. This was a mismatch from the start. he had Guys in his weightclass who he could have fought and that were more than willing to make the deal. Lara and Molina both come to mind. This was a fight Carrot top was supposed to win. Not impressive at all to me.
flazi
can canelo now finally fight someone his size please?

Canelo and Lara is the one I want to see

Anybody else hear Paulie scream out after the 1st knockdown, "He's too small!!" That was quickly silenced, they never mentioned the size disparity again for the rest of the night

In the Morel-Santa Cruz fight when they showed the judges they had scores on the screen pre-fight. I was like WTF? Is this tape-delayed? Turned out the graphic was wrong and I fast-forwarded, but on review that was also a very good fight. Lopez was destroyed by Alvarez!

PS. Who got the $100,000 KO of the night bonus?

Who else do you think they gave that money to Jack? The man of the night, the man of the event, the event in itself....the P4P bum fighter of the woooorld! (Canelo) laugh.gif GBP also gave the remaining winners on the card, an additional $25k, besides, they all ended in stoppages. laugh.gif
