albuquerque fight card report/photos

Sorely skewed in favor of the hometown corner, with a cast of foes whose combined records totaled 14-53-6, Saturday night’s “Fight Night at the Kiva” could’ve easily have been a case of karma carrying out the kayo on Chavez-Crespin Promotions.

The crowd of 800 who showed up to watch the hometowners win ridiculous, obscure titles in gimme situations, however, should’ve gone home more than satisfied – thanks to a high-action undercard that could’ve flopped, but didn’t.

What could’ve been a blundercard was more like a thundercard . . . click here for full report and photos

Shots from ‘Knockout Kings’

Not too sure why the Dia de los Muertes-Man found his way into all my best shots on last night’s shoot in Las Vegas … Could be I was somewhat disappointed that De Leon vs. Gonzalez was dull and Canelo vs. Lopez was a mismatch. On the other hand, Marcos Maidana saved the show with his stoppage of Jesus Soto Karass. For more shots of last night’s Canelo vs. Lopez card . . . |more|

They called it “The Reckoning,” but most expected a wrecking.

What a packed house of 3,000 got, last night at Route 66, west of Albuquerque, was the hometown champ’s repossession of the mythical pound-for-pound crown of women’s boxing . . . |more|

… and they wonder why boxing is in serious decline

Reason No. 4,589 why boxing continues to slip into obscurity: Pacquiao vs. Bradley. Not a single reporter I spoke to last night gave Bradley more than four rounds. Call me a ‘tard, but controlling the fight, landing the harder shots and staggering your opponent more than a few times, at least in my book, equates to a win.

Something stinks in Las Vegas.

Something stinks in boxing.
