Not sure why Tomkins keeps saying this is Groves' U.S. debut. It isn't. He fought Alfredo Contreas in Las Vegas. Ended up stopping Contreas in a bad stoppage, but he was winning g every round anyway.
Finally, Farhood mentions that "this is his 2nd fight here in the U.S."
Yeah, Groves really is a fighter I wouldn't put money on when he makes it to world class level. A bit like Amir Khan. Not a reliable chin, and leaves himself exposed.
When he came in, he came in to boos. Now, he walks out to cheers and applause.
Crazy how Ayi Bruce looks a lot like Shawn Porter. I had to take a double take a couple of times there. I'm like wait, the Porter fight still isn't for another hour.
Every body shot that lands Bruce doubles over a bit.
Still surprised that Canelo-Lopez is scheduled for the 15th. Still waiting for one of them to get injured in training camp and they have to postpone.
That was like a big brother vs little brother type fight. Big brother just sort of hitting little brother with some love taps, and little brother was really trying to KO big brother. Wild swings and misses falling down and what not.
Ah so they're showing Porter/Gomez on normal Showtime then? Guess they have nothing left to show then and it's just gonna be a half hour break.
Yep. T.V. just gets 4 fights. The two on Extreme, and the two co-features on the main Showtime. At the arena, they are showing a 4 round fight.
I love these brawler vs boxer bouts. Guerrero the slick, boxer versus Aydin the angry, dirty, little man. Should be a good one. Porter-Gomez, eh. Hopefully, Gomez makes it interesting.
WOOH! Boy howdy this is a damn good fight so far! Gomez can't miss with the right hand.
Wouldn't it be funny is Porter loses? Porter and Beltran have both been main sparring partners for Manny Pacquiao. Beltran was supposed to lose, but he wins. Porter is supposed to win, but if he loses that'd be pretty funny circumstances.
Now, Porter is breaking him down. Huge round by Porter.
Gomez buzzed Porter a bit with the right hand. Porter just cannot block the right hand. As he continues to move up, he'll have to develop some sort of defense of he wants to be successful.
That was a brutal headbutt. Gomez really blowing. Porter though has fantastic stamina. He doesn't look tired at all.
Nasty gash. Close fight, things are getting interesting in this final round.
Hell of a fight. Scorecards were fine, I guess. 98-92 was a bit harsh, but whatever. Porter, though, isn't world class, yet. World class fighters, future world class fighters don't struggle with the Alfonso Gomez level.
Damn, this is like a replay from a couple of hours ago.
