So far the kid just looks too good to be true, he's got speed, power,
accuracy, dexterity, head movement and inteligence but is it an
We all want another Michael Jordan, another Jim Brown another Sugar
Ray Robinson, but we are all cynics, we all refuse to believe that
there will ever be another great fighter, no more Durans, Robinsons,
Alis or Leonard.
Let's face it, even with superprospects with flashy obvious talents
like DLH, Mosely or Mayweather we all said at one time or another that
they were overrated and too much hype, and for sure any of us who saw
Trinidad's first 10, 15 fights never would have believed he could have
achieved all that he has up to now.
The Trinidads and Mosleys are here today and by the time they are done
and we can look back in retrospect we will be happy to have lived in
their era but we will keep on discarding any young hopefulls like we
discarded Tito when we first saw him, many times greatness cannot be
seen at a distance.
But eventually some great superstar will emerge, but will it be
Francisco Bojado, I think deep down we all protect our greats and we
spit on any suggestion that some young kid could ever match them but
is there a better potential young great than Bojado right now?
I think we all want to doubt him and as soon as he faces some
adversity we will all run to say "I told you so".
He's won them all so far, he's KOed everyone so far, he's hasn't been
knocked down, he hasn't been hurt, he has switched from righty to
lefty, it just looks too good to be true.
Once DLH got dropped by Valenzuella and Campanella we all gloated that
we had cynically predicted that he wasn't all he was cracked up to be.
Once Mosley had tough times with Louis Madrid or Oscar Lopez we all
cherished having been the ones who said the young stud wasn't all that
great to begin with. More bullshit.
As soon as Bojado is extended the distance everyone will come out to
bury him for sure.
Main Events has told me to expect a drastic step up in opposition for
Bojado sometime in Novmeber or December, when asked if that meant
Billy Irwin or Israel Cardonna or somebody else, they didn't clarify
Could Bojado truly be the next great thing yet we refused to even
entertain contemplating such a possibility? Or is he just flashy hype?
