If referee Tony Weeks had a hard time separating Mickey Bey and Miguel Vazquez, referee Robert Byrd had quick job done on Santa Cruz-Roman bout. As expected, Leo Santa Cruz made a quick work over the extremely over-matched Manuel Roman. He successfully defended the super bantamweight title, stopping Roman in Round 2 with a short…

Mickey Bey wins SD in an ugly fight

Mickey Bey wins SD in an ugly fight

This is a fight wherein the referee is busier than the fighters. Referee Tony Weeks earned his paycheck the hardest way. It’s a boring fight. I think many would agree with that claim. In Round 9, I decided to count how many times referee weeks says “stop! stop! stop!…” He said the word “stop” 50…

The rise and fall of Juan Manuel Lopez

I’ve been following the career of Puerto Rican boxer and former two-division champion, Juan Manuel Lopez. He’s one of my favorite fighters.

Broner looks stronger at 140, defeats Taylor in 12

When Adrien Broner (29-1, 22 KO’s) lost to Marcos Maidana in December last year, most boxing experts has the same opinion. Broner needed to go back down at 140 pound division.
