So this is my third short of the day, 1st boxing one (the others being about baseball and the NBA Allstar game). 

I just finished watching tonights fight, and I have some thoughts. First, both winning fighters were impressive. Gamboa destroyed Mtagwa in 2 roundswith 3 knockdowns. However, and Lopez was right to say it, Gamboa did fight against a 122 lb Mtagwa weighing 126 lbs. Gamboa still looked really sharp but still, its out there.

Lopez looked good as well really dominating the fight. Steven Luevano may have won one round, but Lopez seriously took advantage and knocked Luevano down but good. Thing is Luevano was a belt holder and probably should have been a more difficult challenge. I think Lopez may have been more impressive out of the two fights. 

All of that being said, we are now looking at a Lopez-Gamboa match up next. I don't really know who I think will win. Do you?
