I know the boxing fanbase on this site is pretty pathetic but I was just curious if anyone else dished out the 44 bucks to see the judah fight tonight. I was a little wary, to say the least, to throw away that kind of money on another pay-per-view fight right after the mayweather fight which wasn’t that great of a fight. After watching the undercard and the main event I have to say I’m glad I did now.
The first fight of the night was an embarrasement to the sport, enough said.
The second fight between bobby and sota? was excellent. Both were in there to injure the other guy and it ended it a predictable knockout.
The third fight didn’t have that big of names but it was an exciting fight that also ended in a knockout.
The main fight was well worth the money though. It was a bloodfest to say the least. Two accidental lowblows in the beginning, some headbutting led to open cuts, and a nasty gash on cottos lower lip created problems for both fighters. Cotto was aggressive as hell though and although Zab didn’t throw to aggressively like usual he looked to have greatly improved from his previous fights.
He showed tremendous heart in the later rounds and got up from a couple of knockdowns before the ref stepped in for the TKO.
Ignoring the first fight, the event turned out to be an exciting one. Lots of knockouts, blood, big punches, small punches, and great heart shown. Well worth the 44 dollars and a big step up from the mayweather-de la hoya card.
