Underrated weekend. The Miller-Dinu match was of little note other than “Big Baby’s” weight, but Hooker-Saucedo, Rios-Alvarez, and Rosado-Arias were all entertaining scraps. The latter two got little play in boxing circles, but they were well worth tuning into.
Speaking of Rosado, most observers felt he deserved the nod, as did I. This guy is a bona fide fighter who deserves a load of credit. He’s been sticking his neck on the line in tough fights for about a decade now. Hopefully he retires comfortably.
Anyways, strap your hard hats on because this Monday’s batch is a doozy.

Charlie Z has at least one hardcore fan.
No, he would have had his ass beaten worse. A defensive-minded Tyson (whatever the hell that would look like) plays right into their hands, especially Lewis’.
The bottom guy still seems bitter about the Holyfield loss. I’d say the truth is that Tyson never had the heart to stand up to a skilled guy who wasn’t going to take his bully bullshit.
That 3.5 pounds really took it out of Chavez…
There was this guy named Lennox Lewis in 2002. Besides him, Tyson fought a lot of guys who could crack–Pinklon Thomas, Tony Tucker, Frank Bruno, etc. I’m not convinced Wilder belongs up there with the all-time greats as a heavyweight puncher.
Mayweather didn’t “blast” many people north of 135, so he’s sure as hell not doing it to a man who was naturally bigger and never stopped on punches in 201 professional contests, ranging from lightweight to light-heavyweight.
*As always a thanks to everyone who chimed in: Chris Morris, Buddy Gibbs, and Sean King. These things work because of guys like you. Keep them coming.
