The boxing analyst in me picks Ancajas simply for being a much more proven fighter. His best wins are as step above Sultan.
How did G’s use to promote the fight?Y’all musta forgot!
They don’t make ‘em like they used to anymore.How did G’s use to promote the fight?
Maybe they talked shit on Twitter?
Or maybe they posted some stupid memes on Instagram?
Or maybe they ducked each other for years to marinate it?
They promoted fights by fighting.
1 months before one of the biggest events of the year:
1 month - let that sink in.
Notice that Chavez was only mildly irritated - such was the irresistible force of Macho’s personality - just good ol’ friendly trash talk.
And then they kicked the shit out of each other (well, JC mostly did the kicking) for 12 rounds.
Hugged, went partying, did coke.
Zero fucks given.
The first ever Gilberto Roman avatar in the history of internet.They don’t make ‘em like they used to anymore.
Been watching a lot of Roman lately. Wonderful little fighter. Yeh, about top 15 Mexican sounds right, and the SuperFly GOAT IMO. Also gives Arguello and Zarate a run for their money on the mustache game!The first ever Gilberto Roman avatar in the history of internet.
Mexico's top 15/top 20, a contender for the best super flyweight ever - dies young and you can't even find more than a dozen photos of him.
- I fucking did it!
Excellent series indeed! The infighting is better in this series IMO.It doesn’t have the same timeless hatred, but the Laciar trilogy is easily on par with Morales-Barrera skill-wise.
I’m fine with the official decision.I may be biased, but I honestly think Roman edged it.
It is.The infighting is better in this series IMO.
There was a rule that a margin less than 4 points results in a draw.I’ve always heard that razor close fights always get scored as draws in Argentina.
And versatile to boot - I’ve seen him fight off the backfoot and school fools mini-Galindez-style.Laciar is a freaking tank though, and very relentless.
But less of a gas tank, or atleast, less consistency of maintaining that footwork, defensive awareness and offensive output throughout a full 12 round fight, every minute.With more meat in his punches.

Canizales is P4P, the best boxer to watch to me (so smooth and he looked to have everything). When I put people that got hyped off of those "Matrix" videos and HBO/ESPN hype of Loma, onto some Orlando they shut up bout "never before seen talent" real quick.
But I made sure not to show them the full fights. Against Seabrooks, the second time, to me his best and most beautiful performance of his career, Orlando still took his minutes to rest, went defensive and got touched up. A theme throughout his career that saw him have tougher fights with lesser fighters than he should of. Which, with a resume of only mediocre opponents in his prime, is all we can go off on.
Young Gomez however... the god. He had all that shit and a bag of chips. Loma can't compare.
