I almost want to chalk up Victors questionable behavior to immaturity. Im rooting for him to come back with an improved mental game to go along with his physical attributes.

I'd watch it but I hate Boston, so I refuse.

I was drunk AS FUUUUVK during that fight , but I didn't see Froch land solid. I did see Chavez jr swing haymakers as if.

The end of that fight looked like a WWE ending. It was funny to me. Like Ric Flair running away with the title or something lol
Mikey Garcia is one of my favorite fighters
Yeah, Mikey epitomizes what you want in a boxer. He's 'perfect'.

I think he might be hiding a little glass in his chin, though. I would pay to see him fight Yuriorkis Gamboa.

I dont think that dude could hang. Not too bright upstairs imo.

One knock on Mikey is his lack of aggression. Rigo gets slammed for his.

I think Mikey would most definitely knock Gamboa the f**k out... at least, the Gamboa we've seen the last two fights. I would hope we would see vintage Gamboa in the ring against Garcia. In that case, it would be a good fight, still probably resulting in a Garcia win.

I think Mikey's aggression is fine. His KO rate is great. He tried knocking Burgos out, but as the announcers said, it's hard to knock out a quality veteran when he's doing everything he can to NOT get knocked out.

Burgos came in with a game plan and it all changed when he got rocked. Mikey is a good tactician. He relies in the counter punch. Kind of like Donaire. I wonder if he faces a guy that takes that away from him like Rigo, how he will adjust.

THIS is the Yuriorkis Gamboa that had everyone touting him as a future P4P champion. Completely outclassing and beating the hell out of a 41(30ko) - 3 Jorge Solis. I really hope he gets back to this level. I think he's too heavy right now. He's already a midget and 135 is way too big for him... he doesn't have the same power he had at featherweight.
