Agree with deepwater. Andrade has talent but is boring as hell. I’ve seen too many of his fights against overmatched comp he should’ve KTFO. He doesn’t want to take the required risk though. Would rather play it safe and bank a boring win. PS: Not posting too fast ESB GTFO.

“Dominately….” LOL! I meant to say “dominated,” of course!

“Amigo TARK, Do you really believe it when you say that “the Rigondeux vs Nonito rematch is the biggest fight in years”? Really?”

It was certainly one of the most important and revealing, EZ E. Rigondeaux had a whopping 11 pro bouts before taking on one of the highest rated and highest touted boxers in the world. The he convincingly, dominately and astonishingly dismantled Nonito Donaire.

I was impressed all to h3ll and back.

“Vanes really disappointed me last night.”

EZ E, is it just me or was Vanes not emulating Manny Pacquiao’s style? I mean I saw it written all over Vane’s performance–in his footwork, in his counter punching, in his stiff upper body movement.

I tell you though, I think with the right trainer (and I respectfully say that Freddie Roach ain’t it) Vanes would be a serious force to be reckoned with. He’s tough, strong, has a lot of heart and courage. He’s also really quick and agile–but his boxing package is lacking on the whole. I really expected him to do much better against Andrade.

Congrats to Andrade on the win. I don’t think he or Vanes fought to their best ability though. This on paper should’ve been an exciting fight but wasn’t. And what was Vanes’ problem, he dropped Andrade early and gave up the initiative. Anyhow I’d take Lara or Canelo over Andrade easily. Trout too. He’s got a belt though so I can’t bag on him too much.

@EZ E – agree with you about Vanes – his effort was not what I expected – thought he was a better fighter than he proved to be

Ooops, wrong article folks. But what I said still stands. LOL!!

Amigo TARK, Do you really believe it when you say that “the Rigondeux vs Nonito rematch is the biggest fight in years”? Really? I honestly believe that you’re practically all alone on this one, especially after another VERY Donaire sub-par performance. As a matter of fact, the only one super enthusiastic about Donaire’s win are you. I’m sure Robert Garcia and HBO were the MOST WORRIED and then the HAPPIEST at the conclusion, for obvious reasons. We’re miles apart here, amigo. With all due respects but… how OVERLY-impressed have you been with Nonito’s in 5 of his seven outtings, if we exclude the aged ‘Travieso’ & aged Toshiaki encounters? Maybe I missed something. I surely wasn’t, part of the reasons I picked Rigo to beat him then and will, in all likelihood, do it again, should they meet again.

I don’t ever want to see Andrade or Martirosyan fight again… ever. Talk about lack of skill… and boring. Next!

Vanes really disappointed me last night. He didn’t seem like the Vanes that was willing to get “mean n’ nasty”, get in close, letting his hands go, come roaring down the stretch and take the title he continually claimed that was denied him. He simply didn’t want it as bad as many of us expected. Honestly, I thought that he would. I was wrong.

THE REAL AMERICAN OAK

Will not be champ long. Must avoid the real competitors.

Andrade threw a lot of slaps but still earned a win.

Exactly, just a title holder. Floyd is the champ but I doubt he will be that for very long. I think he gives it up and moves back to 147

Andrade didn’t earn this title shot. He’s a title holder not a world champion. I suspect someone will take it from him soon.

I had Lara up by a point and he did seem to be taking over. But I still don’t think it was a gift because I have seen Vanes turn it up before. I was just more upset with the HBO crew saying Lara was the best and has been robbed, yeah he was robbed once against Williams and that was it. Lara is nothing special.

“the Vanes vs Lara fight was close. No way Lara was dominating that fight. ”

Peej, I certainly didn’t say Lara dominated Martirosyan in any way, but he was winning the fight and was getting the advantage on Martirosyan as the rounds progressed, whereas Martiirosyan was becoming obviously less effective. The “draw” was a gift to Vanes.

the Vanes vs Lara fight was close. No way Lara was dominating that fight. I had him up by a round in that fight but the rounds kept going back and forth. Nobody was really dominant in that fight. I don’t think Lara is the best 154 pounder out there nor do I think he will be the champ of the division. I sort of think Trout is gonna beat him.

Question

Demetrius won this fight. Why is a pic of him on the canvas on the front page. That was no where near close to the story. Martirosyan got stopped and a lot of people expected him to win.

I see Good

Andrade put Martirosyan in his place and that place is nowhere near the elite level of boxing. Martirosyan showed excellent agility and speed but poor boxing skills. His defense was almost non-existent and he tried to win a fight almost exclusively by counterpunching–not a good formula for success. Besides that, Martirosyan just proved to the world, that he cannot handle southpaws. He couldn’t handle Lara (that fight was stopped short, but Vanes was losing, and should have lost), and he looked mostly befuddled against Andrade.

Demetrius, on the other hand showed what I expected to see: Youth and inexperience. He has great speed but leaves himself open to be hit. He needs to use his jab like it’s his most important tool rather than like it’s his favorite accessory. He also needs to work on not telegraphing his shots. Vanes was timing him and for at least half the fight, he was doing a fair job of it. But once Andrade learned that’s all Vanes had to offer, he beat him with technical skill and speed.

One has to wonder though: Who was the defensive coach for Martirosyan? Did one even exist? Was the idea of defense even taught to him? Martirosyan is a “B” level fighter. Too bad Brandon Rios is not a jr. middleweight. He’d knock Vanes flat out.

PEEJ

Yeah I am not sure why Vanes wasn’t throwing punches. This was a Vanes I havent seen before. He actually did the complete opposite of what his corner was saying. As for Andrade, not really impressed with him. Don’t see him beating any elite fighters.
