I was surprised that Jessie James Leija beat Panchito Bojado tonight in a 10
round bout. It was a split decision, but Leija is 38 years old, but was
fighting young tonight. The hard punching Bojado could not back Leija up at
all and even though he did a good job on the ropes avoiding some of Leijas
punches he was not able to turn the fight around. I think Bojado will be
back but at least he was able to assess his skills against a good fighter.
Arturo Thunder Gatti boxed superbly and sent Dorin to the canvas in the 2nd
round with a tremendous left hook to the body. It was remeniscent of the
hard left hooks of Mickey Ward who accompanied Gatti into the ring tonight.
Dorin was supposed to be tough and had never been off his feet. The left
hook to the body sent him to one knee and he wasn't able to recover.
