Tomato Can - Sounds like the Rigo fight on Sunday was actually really good. I regret not watching it.

He's still a viable contender at 122. I'd like to see Rigo vs. Daniel Roman.

I heard Mora stopped it prematurely. Fox didn’t even show a replay of how Ceja looked after the knock down... pretty shady.

Rigo is mandatory for Rey Vargas' title now. it was a good fight, Rigo stood in the pocket and traded. very strange to see.

Rigo was hurt several times and was on his way to losing a decision until landing that big shot.  He hasn't been in a lot of wars but at his age he does not need to take any more sustained punishment like that.

 

He made that fight much harder than it needed to be.

he definitely showed the ref that he still wanted to fight - short of putting his gloves on his ears, I don't know what more he could have done. watched it a dozen times & I do NOT like it. And neither did joel diaz as the whole corner left the ring asap. and after the taking points from both fighters due to low blows (wtf?), if seemed like the REF was looking for a way out of that fight lol

Yea that wasn’t a good stoppage, at least let him continue for a little bit longer.

Jack Reiss. Ward-Rodriguez. They both got 2 point deductions, meaning the next foul would result in a DQ.

More belts means their will be more money coming from fighter paying sanctioning fees to fight for one of the belts.

 A couple fights back Canelo refused to pay them the money they wanted to sanction his fight. They must have worked out a lower cut.

Anyone think Canelo will really fight Kovalev? Catch weight? Would be an interesting style match up. Kovalev's jab and power could trouble Canelo a lot. Conversely, Canelo's youth & body attack would be problematic for Sergei. All I know is that if I'm representing Kovalev, I'm demanding the strictest drug testing available. I don't believe a natural Canelo belongs at 175lbs. And, it's not like he's above suspicion either.

I feel it’s a negotiation tactic with team GGG. Even though Kovalev isn’t the same he’s still dangerous. Canelo’s power won’t go up with him and he doesn’t have the cardio to box for 12 rounds.

Kovalev is not a 12 round pressure fighter. He seems to shoot his wad after six. He takes rounds off after that. I don't think that will be an issue for Canelo as would be a pressure guy that makes you fight all 12.

Kovalev can box and fights off his jab. Canelo would have to work to get inside. That takes a lot of stamina. I can’t remember a fight where Canelo didn’t tire in the later rounds lol

and to boot, Canelo doesnt have fast feet so he cant close distance with great speed. unless Kovalev is crippled by a catchweight clause I think he breaks Canelo into little pieces at long range.
