Taking Care Of Business While Building it.

Miguel Cotto and Kelly  Pavlik both did what they had to do last weekend in crushing their over matched cannon fodder appropriately. Many still wonder if both of their recent losses  still affect them since their opponents didn’t pose much of a threat. They didn’t pose a threat because there’s nothing fucking lingering with Miguel and Kelly. Both put those losses behind them in their performances.  Weak opposition or not,  it’s time the media does the same.


While the opposition didn’t prove much Kelly proved he’s still a great draw with the rabid crowd that gathered to watch him lay hands in Youngstown Ohio.  Cotto also had a decent draw with near 12,000 people seated in Madison Square Garden in NYC.  Not bad for the weak opponent he faced.


Both made deposits for future fights against REAL opposition. When they step it up in their next fights expect more fans to step up to the box office to watch. Fighting in these fight hub markets is of supreme importance and it’s great to see that Bob Arum gets it. He’s rebuilding his two stars while increasing their current and future market value.  Current by getting them KO wins, ( Yes I know they were in soft, it still doesn’t matter ) . Future by wanting fans to see more when they’re in big fights.

Now that last weekend is out of the way both fighters can get back to real business by fighting the best opposition possible and available.

For boxing to keep it’s great momentum going it needs to stage fights in these hot fight markets more often. That’s why the Marquez-Diaz fight is going to be crazy… People LOVE their boxing in Houston Texas!

*** It was great to hear that Dallas Vargas won by 3rd round tko on the Pavlik-Rubio under card. I fought Dallas three times in the amateurs. He’s a gritty and tough fighter.

*** Speaking of Marquez-Diaz, I think it’s really going to be a better fight than most anticipate. Look for both fighters to put on great performances as both will bring out the best in each other.

*** I hear that Veron Forrest is in the mix to fight Kelly next. Under sized or not… Vernon can still fight and cause Kelly some major problems. I don’t like that fight for Kelly at all.

    Agreed. Smart move to build up the fights in places like Ohio. My only complaint was the PPV status. Saturday’s card should have been on free TV.

    Yeah, the under cards of both fights sucked. Would have been better if Anthony Peterson would have fought as planned.
