Cotto took a knee because MargaCheato had Cement Wraps in their first fight.. in their Second fight Cotto stopped MargaCheato busting up his face and eye leading to retiring the cheating scumbag..

“Even Cotto continued fighting Clottey with a 5 inch Gash over his Eyes ” Yeah, but Cotto took a knee in his first fight with Margarito.

FA – what ever happened to Angulo it was done by Cuban Lara and he quit.. simple as that..

PE I saw the USA Today report, no fracture. But they didn’t do an Xray or MRI so Angulo’s camp wants a second opinion. That’s standard if you don’t feel a first diagnosis was thorough enough. Either way he absorbed a lot of damage.

Public Enemy – A “gash” and a “broken orbital bone” are WAY, WAY different…you can’t compare the two, you have ZERO respect for guys who step in the ring, you’re not a boxing fan.

Public Enemy – So, Angulo’s face gets broken and he’s a “cowardly pussee”?? Wow. That’s brutal. The dude’s face cracked, I would’ve quit too, screw ruining my vision for the rest of my life. You’re a douche.

Posted June 10, 2013 2:15 pm 


Hidalgo

“NO MAS NO MAS por el amor de dios NO MAS!!!!!! LOL what a cowardly pusseee…” LOL PE but you know that’s not true. Angulo is like Margarito–rock chin, strong will. You have to practically kill him to make him stop. That was no coward quitting. That was a defeated warrior who had been beaten.

When anyone has gotten thumbed they immediately grasp for the Eye and start Blinking.. at no time did Sore Loser Angulo grasp for his Eye and start blinking trying to restore his Vision.. he turned his Back and Put his glove on the side of his Orbital Bone and starting crying in Pain.. NO MAS NO MAS por el amor de dios NO MAS!!!!!! LOL what a cowardly pusseee…

He had his eye red early on and was tagging Angulo with some hard counters… The formula for getting to Angulo seems to be surviving the storm and pounding away a la Kirkland and Lara… Angulo is looking like he might be damaged goods..

This fight is the reason i love boxing.Both guys should recieve millions of dollars each, for this great product produced:GREAT ACTION FIGHT ,millions of boxing fans will enjoy this fight.Maybe a top 50 fight of all time.IMO (in my opinion)

Posted June 9, 2013 3:36 pm 


Hidalgo

“Lara did not “thumb Angulo” I agree, Sredmond. Lara was hammering Angulo’s left eye since early in the fight. He had cut Angulo above that eye very early in the fight. Angulo was hurt bad and couldn’t continue. Lara is one tuff mofo too.

Posted June 9, 2013 2:20 pm

I just watched this fight again that was excellent rebounding from
Being hurt on the part of Lara… He literally broke Angulos face that was beautiful and Great commentary on the reality of fighters who are NOT defensively responsible..

SREDMOND – agree, that shot as perfect straight Left clearly seen in the replay.. but as you know these sore losers will always want to blame it on some bullsht… thumb in the eye??? There was no damage to the Eye that was laughable.. The Damage was to the Orbital area.. Swelled up like a Mellon.. that shot clearly shook the Neanderthal to his knees and made him immediatley turn his back and quit, aka NO MAS… You could see when his corner tried to put ice on the Orbital area he winced in Pain.. Lara Broke his Spirit and made him quit like a coward..

Bad night for the sht talkin Chihuahuas.. Angulo pulls a No Mas after Cuban Lara Breaks his Face.. Just like Paquiao Broke MargaCheatos face.. Steriods will only take you so far in Boxing.. You can’t be a face first plodding pinyatta your entire bogus career… After the few Hundred Shots Lara Landed to the Neanderthals face you knew that Egg was going to Crack.. then the Sore losers tried to say it was a Thumb??? LOL, Thumbless Gloves and You don’t break someones orbital Bone with a Phantom Thumb.. and the Boooing Chihuahua Crowd showed their true Colors when Lara was announced the Winner…

Posted June 9, 2013 8:55 am 


SREDMOND

Lara did not “thumb Angulo” with thumbless gloves he caught him coming in with a good shot, injured him and made him give up… I fcking hate this notion that punching your opponent in the face and cutting or breaking something changes the nature of a win… This is boxing, fcking a guy up is fcking a guy up…

Posted June 9, 2013 2:11 am 


Big Ham

The Dawson stoppage saved Chad from a impending worse KO. The Lopez stoppage i think was a tad quick, but not anything near a bad stoppage. I just think lopez would have survived and perhaps even rallied back a little bit. Madaina is a real puncher though. Not blazing fast, more of that heavy George Foreman type power. I will say this, i think Madaina whom never really gets to choose his opponents should get a fight that suits him well stylistically and pays well. Definitely do not want to see him in with Alexander again. Nor mayweather. I think he should take a stay busy fight and then angle for the winner of JMM vs Tim Bradley.

I meant to say that I thought Ref Moret made a very good call in stopping the fight when he did.

Posted June 9, 2013 1:00 am 


Hidalgo

As for Maidana, he did what I expected him to do. At first I thought Ref Moret stopped the fight too soon, but after watching a couple of replays I thought he made a very stoppage. Josesito is too damn tough for his own good and he was getting hammered by Maidana. Great fight!

Posted June 9, 2013 12:59 am 


Hidalgo

Well, a guy like Angulo has to be in some serious pain to turn his back on his opponent and quit. But at least he had the brains to do so. I was impressed with Lara–he showed some grit that I hadn’t seen before. He still played roger dodger too much in the earlier rounds, but by golly, he’s a warrior. Good fight.

Cory Blamire

Lopez congratulates Maidana, tells him it was a good battle.

Lopez tells Jim Gray he thought it was a premature stoppage. He admits he was stung. He says he should have been given the benefit of the doubt to get past that situation. He says he got buzzed and could have still fought his way out even though it may have appeared he was hesitant. He was actively covering up and felt he was still in the game.

Gray asks where he would like to go having moved up against Canelo and dropped back down after losing. Lopez feels perfect at 147. He knew what he was up against with Maidana and trained really hard and unfortunately it didn’t go his way, but he is comfortable remaining at welter.

Posted June 9, 2013 12:45 am 


DEXTER MORGAN

Damn Maidana gave him the “Mop N Glo”… Lopez is a good guy, huge heart but go back to 140…

Posted June 9, 2013 12:43 am 


Cory Blamire

Maidana is interviewed by Jim Gray.

He says Lopez mostly landed shots he was fine with standing up to, but a couple in the side of the head really did hurt.

He says the worrisome punch on the side of the head was the only deviation from the way he thought his game plan would play out, but the voice of his trainer in the corner kept him calm through it.

He says the ref did a great job, but in the moment he didn’t want to stop throwing punches and wanted to keep brawling with Lopez.

Maidana is asked about Matthysse. (his childhood friend, teammate, rival and training partner – against whom he went 3-0-1 in a series of very close matches) He chuckles. He says they’ve been talking about meeting in the pros for a long time but currently there is no offer made and he isn’t sure if and when it will happen.

Maidana lands the right hand and they engage in a combustible melee on the inside. Maidana throws a set-up hook and then doubles an overhand right.

Round 5

Maidana is pouring out jabs and Lopez is countering with the jab and right hand in between lateral steps. Lopez is out-boxing Maidana at close to medium range. Maidana is forcing the jab out as far as he can, first hitting the forearms but then catching Lopez on the lip. Lopez blocks a right hand and gets backed up to the ropes. Hard right by Maidana. Uppercuts to the body by Maidana, building up a head of steam and teeing off. Maidana is swarming all over Lopez and has stolen the round.

Round 4

Lopez starts very fast, and HURTS MAIDANA WITH STRAIGHT COMBINATIONS. Maidana is blasted into a corner, shying away with head bowed meekly behind his guard. Lopez slows down, pacing himself to avoid punching himself out. Jab by Lopez misses, but he digs a HARD LEFT HOOK TO THE BODY. MAIDANA IS BADLY HURT BY THAT. Maidana stumbles back into the ropes. More hooks by Lopez. Maidana is trying to clinch. Maidana slips to his knees. Ruled no knockdown, even though the whole sequence of Maidana losing his balance was caused by those hard left hooks of Lopez. Maidana is up and dancing on his toes. HARD RIGHT HAND BY LOPEZ, countering over the Maidana jab. Double jab by Lopez. Maidana stays outside, pumping the jab in triplicate. Straight right hand lead by Lopez, snapping Maidana’s head back viciously. Left hooks to the body by Lopez, really sapping the wind of Maidana.

Unlike Ortiz, people shouldn’t blame Angulo for stopping. He was in the danger zone. He might have got killed by the 12 round. good job by the Ref saving his life. No matter how powerful you are, you can’t keep taking clean shots and last. That’s the problem with Angulo’s style. He uses his face for defense.

Angulo is walking into straight lefts, willingly. Angulo is himself fighting southpaw now, leading with right jabs. Lara jabs up and down Angulo’s chest, backing into a corner but creeping out by mere inches as Angulo comes hammering in at him. Angulo flutters the right jab out near Lara’s eyes, hoping to obscure his vision. Speaking of which, Angulo has massive swelling around his left eye. Hard lefts to the wounded eye by Lara. Angulo turns his back. The ref steps in.

Angulo is following, targeting the body. Lara keeps his arms low. ANGULO MAKES HIM PAY. BIG LEFT HOOK ON THE CHIN!! LARA IS DROPPED AGAIN!! Lara gets to his feet, pushing off the front foot to retreat and jabbing with all he can muster into Angulo’s face to discourage him. Angulo tries for the finish, connecting obliquely with some rights as Lara rolls back with them, using every ounce of energy he can summon on defense.

Round 8

Angulo is piling on body punches, burrowing his furry mandible behind his fists when not directly throwing in multiples. Lara is carrying those hands dangerously low, working left hand leads on the back foot. Right jabs used by Lara to place a steadying hand on Angulo to turn him as needed. 1-2 by Lara. Angulo grinds in and lands body shots, then roughs Lara up with his forearm scrubbing against his face. Shove off. Lara circles away.

Round 7

Angulo is on the offensive, pummeling Lara’s body with hooks. Lara dances away, pivoting and putting up sharp jabs and left hands. Lara is carrying his arms down at his sides, moving left and then right to throw Angulo off his rhythm. Insistent nonstop body punching by Angulo, losing a bit of their starch but still adding up and keeping Lara from getting comfortable.

67-65 Lara

Round 6

Angulo is missing with the left hook bearing down on Lara, giving him no reprieve from his intense pressure. Lara is tapping a beat on Angulo’s chin with the right jab. Lara has plenty of space in the large ring to dance around Angulo, landing from every spot on the carousel. Lara inevitably pauses to rest by the ropes, playing with fire, only just barely moving in time before Angulo arrives with murderous intent, big arms drawn up in preparation to smash him but never getting the chance.

10-9 Lara

58-55 Lara

Posted June 8, 2013 11:38 pm

The problem is Angulo is used to taking lots of punishment to get his wins. The question is: how will Lara deal with this situation after going down for the first time. So far, he’s doing well. Nice round 5.

Lara gets momentarily caught on the ropes and curls into a ball as Angulo drops leather on him. Lara circles to his left and places a nice 1-2. Lunging right by Angulo, turning upside down and scooping upward. Lara dodges it and scores repeatedly with the right jab, playing keep-away. Angulo can’t cut the distance.

Round 4

Angulo is throwing hooks to the body and hunching over to absorb Lara’s counters thrown fluidly in combination off the ropes. Angulo is hulking himself up, very tense and rigid, throwing very stiff heavy punches. BIG LEFT HOOK BY ANGULO, and Lara bounces off the ropes and lands on his butt! Lara seems more shocked than anything. That is the first time he left his feet in his pro career. Angulo sprays uppercuts while tethered to Lara by an invisible rope, coming in like a Terminator. Lara is able to dance his way through the round, flicking out right jabs.

10-8 Angulo

Angulo switches to southpaw and uses some right forearm thrusts to steer Lara into the ropes. Left hand lead by Lara. Stiff-arm to the throat by Angulo. 1-2 by Lara, partly blocked. Lara circles away, using quick movement and leaving a right jab for Angulo to walk into. Angulo marches through and whacks Lara’s body, pinning him on the ropes. Lara escapes and covers up as Angulo walks him to the next set of ropes. BIG LEFT UPPERCUT by Lara, sending rivulets of sweat flying into the eighth row from Angulo’s braided tail.

10-9 Lara but Angulo enjoyed increased success.

Round 2

Angulo tries for hooks to the body. Lara is landing the right jab and left cross, luring Angulo to the ropes but springing out at skewed angles with right hooks pounding into Angulo’s left ear, reddening it. Very sharp lead lefts by Lara. Angulo is pushing a jab out in pursuit and hoping to swat below on Lara’s midsection when he traps him on the ropes – which never happens. Lara dodges an uppercut but gets touched with a couple of body taps. TRIPLE STRAIGHT LEFT BY LARA. Angulo’s head is quivering with the force of Lara’s extremely accurate, technically correct, precise, snapped lefts. Shoeshine to the body by Angulo, all caught on the bottom of the lowered guard by Lara.

Double right jab, double left cross by Lara – very fast and very hard. Angulo turns southpaw and waves a right jab in, flicking it backhanded and following with a looping left.

Round 12

Hopkins is throwing jabs to the upper chest and slapping around the side with a right hand down low. Charlo sticks a double jab into Hopkins’ face. Charlo flinches away from a Hopkins jab, slipping it, and boomerangs in with his own – but Hopkins pulls the same move on him. Charlo is jabbing in between the inner wrists of Hopkins, not quite touching his beard. Hopkins forks in a jab, too slow as Charlo ducks and circles. Charlo is swatted by an overhand right from Hopkins but gets in a quick combination to the body while crouched. 1-2 up top by Charlo. Hopkins throws a jab, and his head is rocked back sharply by a stiff Charlo counter jab. Clinch.

Round 11

Hopkins is throwing wide body punches while draping himself over a clothesline. Charlo jumps back and lands the straight right hand counter. Hopkins peels up his rear foot an inch off the canvas, moves it out like a record needle, and drags his front to restore his posture. Counter right by Hopkins. Charlo is dropping in jabs from outside, not looking to go after the obviously stalling Hopkins.

Round 10

Hopkins is circling right and making Charlo miss his jab with head movement, picking some off with his stationary right glove by swaying in to meet them and guide their trajectories to align.

Round 8

Left hook by Hopkins. Charlo is waving the left jab. Hopkins coils up, doing nothing for periods, playing possum and then exploding with a quick untidy jab and chopping right, arching his spine as he falls in. The end result is not much landing. Charlo keeps on his toes circling a little outside his own range, throwing single uppercuts and double jabs or hooks when he turns Hopkins, whose defensive instincts let him roll with everything despite Charlo’s quickness. The end result is not much landing cleanly.

10-9 Hopkins, barely.

Chopping right by Hopkins, missing. Quick combo by Charlo, staggering Hopkins. It was a delayed reaction so Charlo had already let the opportunity to follow up on it slip away while they circled wider apart. 1-2 by Hopkins.

Round 4

Hopkins is waiting on Charlo. Jab feints by Charlo, and a hook to the body leaning in. Hopkins tries to time him with the right hand, but is a beat too slow.

Lead right by Hopkins, missing by several inches. Charlo jabs at Hopkins’ nose, walking him down. Hopkins uses lateral movement, cutting semicircles around Charlo while pulling away from the jab.

Hopkins is ducking and swinging his arms around Charlo to pull him in close, grinding his head into Charlo’s ribs. Charlo works jabs and short combos as they stand at mid-range and reflectively pull up and replant the tent stakes of their feet to stay in position and spy for openings. Pretty dull stuff.

Round 10

Kamegai is coming forward, nestling in against Perez, almost welcoming the rest. They separate and Perez lumps in several hooks to the sides of Kamegai’s head, letting both fists bore in with equal conviction. Nothing back from Kamegai. They step completely apart and Kamegai throws a faint right hand at the receding image of Perez. Kamegai seems half asleep on his feet. Left hook, right hand, left hook by Perez – all the punches caught partially on the gloves but scraping against Kamegai’s face. Kamegai does an odd shuffle to get inside, waving his gloves around to fake Perez out. Perez just waits to react. Right hand by Kamegai. Perez ducks the next one.

Round 9

Kamegai is still looking to apply pressure but unerringly gets beaten to the punch and raked with leather, unable to mount any meaningful retaliatory attacks due to Perez’s swift abandonment of the battlefield once he’s dealt his damage. Perez is using jabs, rights and hooks to great effect while artfully stepping around Kamegai, using directional changes and sometimes stooping in low to abruptly jolt Kamegai with the interruption of his droning forward momentum, and then pushing off. Kamegai is managing to lay a hand on Perez’s face here and there when Perez backs out, but isn’t landing any punches with authority like he intends.

Kamegai is softly paddling the sides of Perez’s body. Perez backs out of the pocket, splays his legs, and turns over hooks into Kamegai’s chest.
Kamegai is throwing right hand leads and actually tricks Perez with a jab feint, but only glances with the scoring right it buys him. 1-2 by Perez to stop Kamegai in his tracks before creating distance. Kamegai moves in and chops at Perez’s head. Flush jab on the eye socket by Perez. Left hook to the front of the trunks by Kamegai. Perez trots out of a corner to escape, making Kamegai spin in place.

Round 6

Kamegai is trying to brush his fists against the sides of Perez’s body, nudging him toward the ropes. Perez counters with the left hook and wriggles free. Kamegai walks into a few more counters and casts a furtive, pleading glance to his corner – seeking advice, perhaps? Right hand by Kamegai, finally connecting with some regularity…meaning greater than once per minute. Another big right hand by Kamegai. Perez ducks back and leaves a left hook out in Kamegai’s path, slowing him a bit.

Kamegai is walking forward, throwing right hands at chest level, not finding his range. Perez is dancing back toward the ropes, bouncing off them, moving to his left, and firing short Uzi bursts of counter-punches which he can’t seem to miss. Kamegai thrashes his right arm up over Perez’s outstretched left but still can’t get it all the way across to his target.

Kamegai is following Perez and sticking the jab, hitting Perez’s gloves or nothing. BIG counter left hook by Perez squaring up and waiting in ambush for Kamegai. Combination to the head by Perez. Big doubled up left hook by Perez as Kamegai shells up and leans away. Clinch. Perez lands a blunted right hand on the throat of Kamegai and sweeps a left hook across his sideburns.

Uh-oh. His trainer doesn’t seem to know it’s been changed to a 4-rounder. He just gave him “the ultimatum” – if Casillas doesn’t show him something in this round he will call it off. He doesn’t realize it will be off anyway…

As it happens, it’s moot. The referee, Lou Moret, visits the corner to advise he is stopping the bout due to Casillas’ uncompetitiveness.

Round 8

Washington is circling to his right, rowing with that oar “jab”, slow and steady. Williams simply watches from outside, plodding in with no urgency. Williams tries for some body shots, bowling them in from a yard away. Washington is taking quick backward & diagonal steps to fade from view as Williams loads up on hooks taking leaps in from a forward-leaning crouch. The ref warns them for headbutts, which are resultant from Williams charging in and Washington pushing down on him with some frequency.

Washington circles left and extends a slow jab from outside, keeping a bead on Williams but not snapping the jab on him. Williams lunges and misses with a right, arm-punching.

Round 2

Washington is jabbing from a distance. Williams rolls forward, thick biceps crowded up against his throat with the rest of his stubby Tyrannosaurus Rex limbs receding into his wrist tape mere inches away. Big combination by Washington thrown in counter over a rocketing Williams right – an uppercut converted into an overhand right – and Williams is dropped! That is the first knockdown scored against Williams in 50 pro bouts. Williams is up, more embarrassed than hurt. Wild high scythes by Williams, missing. Washington remains calm and jabs the round out.

Round 1

Washington is extending the long jab from across the Corona logo. Williams circles and watches, lying in wait. The taller man doesn’t oblige him by getting in close and giving up his advantage in height, keeping Williams at the end of the rangy jab. Williams tries for an overhand right as they’re passing by each other but only grazes. Washington backs up with a 1-2.

10-9 Washington
