Re: Historically, who do you think would beaten Chocolatito?

I don't know. He's never lost as an amateur or as a pro but bouts against any of the Hall of Famers from junior bantamweight on down would have been great to see.

Re: R.I.P. Rasta, You Will be Missed

Hard to believe. Rasta seemed to be a constant presence here. He certainly will be missed.

Re: Francisco Vargas vs Micky Roman in the works

Well earned opportunity. Roman has had to win a number of eliminators to get this shot.

Re: Jason Sosa vs. Gervonta "Tank" Davis

Davis is a talented prospect who might upset Sosa but he hasn't earned this title shot.

I may have been wrong about Postol but I was right about Tapales! Point-wise, it would have been better the other way around but I finished strong!

Re: BodyPuncher Nawaphon 34-0 vs Lauro Friday

If Gonzalez beats Cuadras, Nawaphon will get to fight for the vacant WBC flyweight title. I can't see Lauro landing a lucky punch to prevent it and he's not going to outpoint Nawaphon.

I'm looking forward to this card. I want to see if my high opinion of Adam Lopez is justified. I have him ranked in my super bantamweight top ten.

Congratulations, Grandpa. So Brody's got a little sister. Very nice!

As for my rankings, they're done. You better stop messin' around with BoxRec and update yours!

Re: Canelo Now WBO's #1 Contender at 154

Smith may have a "title" but he doesn't belong in the ring with Alvarez. Look at his record:

Re: Canelo Now WBO's #1 Contender at 154

I hope Canelo does fight Smith at 154 and wins. That should be enough for the lineal middleweight title to be considered vacant. Then Golovkin can beat Jacobs in a 1v2 bout and finally be what he deserves to be.
