  1. Entretenido combate entre dos boxeadores,que siempre estan relegados a un segundo plano.Fallo justo.Saludos.

  2. I like figueroa, he is a young warrior, but i don’t understand why he has moved up from the lightweight division to the the super welterweight!!! the jump was too big! please go back to the lightweight or light welterweight

    1. I had this great fight 117-111, I gave only 3 rounds to DeMarco. Most of the fight happened in the ropes with de Marco having his back to them, and it didn’t work for him. I too like figueroa, I didn’t know he had hopped in weight that much, thanks for the info daniel :)

    2. The higher you go in weight, the higher the numbers in your bank account go. Boxing fans like you and me may see, clear as day, that a certain fighter is much better suited fighting at a lower weight, but casual fight fans outnumber the rest.. And PPV numbers reflect more weight = more money.

        1. I actually want to renege that statement, because I think most fighters go up in weight because it’s too hard to continue the process of making weight at whichever class they are fighting in, which is usually 10 to 15 pounds under the weight they walk around that..some fighters like Brandon Rios have had to lose over 20 pounds in the days before the fight. That’s why I think GGG is such a beast, because he fights at his natural weight. Part of the reason why Canelo is so dominant is because he’s a super middleweight fighting at Jr Middleweight or welterweight and stuff. He’s usually around 170 on fight night. Cotto is a welterweight fighting at Middleweight. That’s why all this talk about Canelo or Cotto fighting GGG is always one step forward two steps back, because both of them (but especially Cotto) don’t wanna fight at 160..which to me means,they’re

          1. this second answer is probably the main reason of his new weight because if you move up in weight class just for the money it’s not wise….i mean you make money just if you can win and be one of top10 in the new division.
            The example of Prince Naseem Hamed is right but also Floyd Mayweather or now in the mma Conor McGregor….so I think that if you want to make more moneey you have to build a character around your name, maybe just acting….so in this way a lot of people will love you or will hate you but also the people that hate you (like for floyd) will watch your fight because they want to see you losing.
            Anyway I usually prefer natural and clean fighter like Golovkin or Fedor Emelianenko or also Manny Pacquiao, fighter that don’t speak a lot but give all on the ring.
            About the weight I hope one day the fighters will make the weigh-in just 5 minutes before the entrance on the ring so everybody will fight on their natural weight

          2. I agree with most of your comment danielsan, but about the weight, can you imagine the fiasco if a fighter doesn’t make the weight in the scenario you are describing? Fans in the arena totally pissed, television networks having to deal with a cancelled main event, promoters in money limbo.

            I think it is not feasible, although it would be fair, I understand what you mean of course by having two guys at the same weight making the fight more fair.

          3. yes i know that but for example the boxers that will now make the weight will lose fans, money and credibility because they will show they are not professional. And i think that if you fight at your natural weight it’s very difficult not to make weight.
            For example in world title fights or important events, they could make a weigh-in check just 3or4 days before the fight, so everybody knows if the boxer is close to the weight limit but then they will do the final and official weigh-in 5 minutes before the fight

          4. that is reasonable. Gatti used to gain like 15 pounds in a day. Good idea man with a weigh in 3 or 4 days away. :)

  3. Excellent fight with an incredible interchange of punches which really deserves 4 starts. Omar put in place the right plan for this match fighting from inside with superb efficiency against a very tough and good seasoned boxer. If Omar don’t do that Antonio would be the winner now since he looks like to be the stronger puncher in the ring with the benefit of his reach advantage. Omar has an incredible heart, an iron chin, and he is able to change stance as required to control the fight. I believe, that Omar doesn’t have punching power at all and all his knock outs are just because the volume of punches his able to connect during the whole fight which may have finally destroyed/eroded all his previous opponents. Round 11th was the best. Omar fully deserves this victory and Antonio deserves also all our consideration because he put a hell of the fight and a very very close one.
