The Unbearable Lightness Of Being — Ricardo Lopez And The Kazakh KO King

Returning home at around midnight last night, I switched on the earlier BoxNation card and gamely attempted to stave off sleep. It didn’t work.

Filipino lightweight Mercito Gesta had little difficulty with Luis Arceo on Fox Sports 1 Friday, and not for lack of trying by Arceo. On the same card, Chinese giant Taishan Dong made a successful, if not lumbering, pro debut. Gesta has often had trouble letting his hands go, for all his evident talent. He’s like […]

FNF Results: Inconclusive Night, But Emmanuel Taylor Wins

We got a no contest and a close decision on ESPN2′s Friday Night Fights, with Emmanuel Taylor taking away the unanimous win over Karim Mayfield in the main event.
