Was looking forward to Connor-Evangelou but only managed to catch a little bit of it. I hate when people you've seen mere hours ago start talking to you when you're trying to enter hermit-mode.:twisted Credit to @Vano-irons for displaying genius on that one though.

Rivera can't really do much to keep Purdy off of him here, constantly being forced to move along the ropes trying to keep him off balance.
I think the commentary team anticipated waaaaaaaay too much from Rivera here. Surprised at just how much of a test they seemed to have expected him to be.
I'll be here.

@Pabby Help me out here?
The cousin started off pretty well, Jones fought similarly to the Brook fight in that regard as while he pressured consistently, he was pretty patient in terms of throwing punches, which allowed Deano to take most of the earlier rounds. Over the second half he started to feel the effects of being forced to circle so widely and Jones really came back into it a lot, coming on stronger as Dean faded.

Was looking ominous for a bit but Jones got more and more reckless in the last couple of rounds, which enabled mah'dude to pick at the holes and sneak in another messy round or two at the end.
Dude in Balmaceda's corner looked like Ian Beale when he was homeless.
Argenis Mendez flattened Juan Carlos Salgado in their rematch :happy


Great to hear and look forward to watching. Mendez is the man, been a fan of his for a while. He had an annoyingly slow 2012, hopefully he can start to fulfill his ample potential now that he's gotten his revenge here.
