I was surrpised to see Vernon lose his head after the disputed first round
knockdown. It was dumb for him to try and slug with a monster puncher like
Mayorga. Just as it was unwise for Sugar Ray to slug with Duran in their
first fight, so the same can be said here. (Although for a little while, it
looked like Vernon was really rocking him).

It was a heck of a fight while it lasted, and even though I just got back
from 4 days in the hospital and was tired as heck, I am glad I stayed up for
this one (I almost skipped it and went to bed early)

And even though I don't necessarily disagree with the Casamayor-Campbell
decision (I thought the fight could ahve been called a draw), I thought the
98-92 and 97-93 scorecards were a bit wide.
