Weekend Wrap Up: Legal Sucker Punch.
Mayweather-Ortiz was a HUGE let down and melt down of Victor. Victor just can’t handle the big stage as he punked out to Floyd head butting him then hugging and kissing him until getting KO’d by a legal sucker punch. Bizarre behavior from such a young unstable mind. I thought Ortiz was better than that and damn was I wrong.
The corrupt and I’m proud of it Joe Cortez was again took his part in loosing control of a fight. This dude is bad news. Fucking horrible and despicable. My he is allowed to ref in huge fights I have no idea when his track record of performances proves he’s shit. He took his eyes of the fight and he’s ass much to blame for the fight ending the way it did as Floyd and Victor are.
Floyd did what he had to do and landed that legal sucker punch. It was legal what he did but no sportsmanship at all. That’s Floyd and how he’s defined. He saw his chance and took it.
Lets see if he will finally take his as in the ring with Pacauio provided Manny beats Marquez. Floyd must fight Pacquiao or Martnez or stay reired for good. There’s no one else left to fight.
Canelo Alvarez started slow and looked sluggish against Alfonso Gomez. Gomez fought hard and smart and the fight was almost even before the stoppage. Canelo was landing the harder blows and he landed some wicked ones but he fought lazy and his defense wasn’t good. I don’t like the shoulder roll he was using and I feel he fights too tall at times. Canelo can whack though and has very fast hands. I thought the stoppage was a tad fast but Canelo was about to seriously hurt Gomez. Gomez couldn’t handle Canelo’s power and speed. I loved Canelo’s upper cuts and body work.
I think canelo will develop more and just needs more fights like these. He’s only 21 but he is champion so his opposition is going to be better. If he can tighten up his defense and fight off the balls of his feet more he’s going to really good for some time and be a big attraction for boxing. Boxing needs fighters like Canelo who fight hard and with class.
