Anybody see Zepeda vs Baranchyk last night? Hands down fight of the year. 8 knockdowns in 5 rounds. Zepeda down twice in the first and Baranchyk once, Baranchyk down once in the second and third, they traded knockdowns in the 4th and in the last thirty seconds of the fifth Baranchyk knocked Zepeda down and Zepeda got up and took Baranchyk out with one shot with Baranchyk on the canvas for close to ten minutes.
great display of heart on both side. when baranchyk woke up, he asked "why does my knee hurt?" lol

one of mexico's most exciting boxers fights tonight on espn.

emmanuel navarrete vs ruben villa.

navarrete is relentless, has long arms, and hits hard. too bad certain posters will miss this fight between 126 midgets.

Looking forward to this. I think Villa puts some rounds in the bank early but gets worn down as the fight progresses. ESPN has some good fights lined up over the next six weeks or so.

I remember Roldan viciously ko'ing Frank (the animal) Fleltcher. Very tough guy, RIP

Fletcher one of the greatest TV fighters of all time. His brother Anthony "Two Gun" Fletcher was a decent fighter as well, built up a decent record and then ran into Oba Carr.

Emiliano Vargas looks to be the most promising out of all the Vargas kids. He's 16 years old and is a 7-time national champ.
