One week after Mayweather-Ortiz, and it seems like boxing took a hiatus. With all the promoters and weight classes out there, you have to wonder how this is possible.
Anyway, it's time for this weekend's edition of rating the fights, and though there are slim pickings, there are still some fights worth watching that will be televised.
So with that said, here's a breakdown of the rankings.
1 star = Only use this as an aide to cure insomnia. Or a method of torture.
2 stars = Drink enough alcohol and this fight might entertain you.
3 stars = Decent fight. Just like most matinee movies, you won't remember it three hours after it happened, but you'll enjoy yourself while your watching it.
4 stars = Good fight. Something that will keep you on your toes every once in a while, and you'll have a smile on your face the next morning as you remember it.
5 stars = You are glad you saw this fight. It had a little bit of everything, and it will get you through Monday at work when you wonder why you need your paycheck. It might even be something you brag about watching.
6 stars = They don't get much better than this. Your voice is a little hoarse from all the yelling, but it was worth it. It'll be hard getting to sleep, and by tomorrow you will have read every scrap of post-fight news you can find on the web.
7 stars = They don't get any better than this! Ever! Forget sleep; you won't be getting much if you get any at all. You will be refreshing news pages for new articles and breaking information, and by Friday your voice still won't sound normal.
With that out of the way, let's move on...
