Leija schools Bojado!
38-year-old former champion Jesse James Leija recovered from a second round
knockdown to outbox, outwork, outmaneuver and upset highly regarded Francisco
"Panchito" Bojado by split decision over ten rounds Saturday night at Atlantic
City. Leija, who surprisingly wasn't cut in the bout, utilized all of his
considerable ring experience to defeat the harder-punching 21-year-old Bojado
landed to win 96-93, 95-94 on two cards while Bojado prevailed 95-94.

This is the first fight I can ever remember where I scored it
differently than Harold Lederman.  I had it the same as the judge who
scored it 96-93 for Leija.  Jesse surprised me with his sustained
attack and Bojado surprised me with his withdrawal especially after
knocking Leija down.  Maybe Francisco doesn't have enough Mexican in
him.

Leija was merely his usual crafty self. If this was a truly rejuvenated
Leija, Bojado would've left the ring in a stretcher.

Bojado doesn't have the talent HBO has been touting to start with, and he is
lazy on top of that because he's had it handed to him and seems to think
he'll continue to get things handed to him. And HBO seems willing to
continue to comply and waste out time building him up. Building him up for
what, though? It was amusing to see the commentators try to say good things
about Bojado, but for once Merchant showed he's got a bit of a functioning
brain and some remote resemblance of integrity when he finally stated that
perhaps Bojado simply isn't the real thing. I mean, duh, how many flat
performances do you have to witness to see that? A Bojado's developmental
stage, if he's not terrorizing the usual suspects serially knocking them
out, you know he's simply not boxing's next big thing, and will never be. So
HBO: if you've *got* to show us Bojado, at least put him in there against
someone with some fire and a punch, and give us some entertainment in the
form of his first "KO by" result.

Bojado's night seemed to change with a single bodyshot around the 4th (?)
round.  After he got hit, Bojado did virtually nothing the rest of the
round.  And what was with that retreating to the corner and dipping low?  I
was thinking he should have been jabbing, throwing one-two's and other
combinations from time to time.  When Bojado jabbed, he did okay.  When he
abandoned the jab, he was befuddled.  The fight was his to lose and he
succeeded in giving it away to a fighter who wanted it more than he did.
And that was the bottom line: Leija wanted the win more than did Bojado.

Yep, after he caught a big bodyshot I remember the fight started to change,
bojado started to back up and any other bodyshot seemed to bother him.

Good observations.  

It eventually became obvious that Bojado would not chance paying the price to
overcome Leija's offense.  Heaven help him when he faces a guy who can box AND
punch.

I noticed that as well.  That body shot may have broken a rib.  Bojado
was never the same after that.  Also, did you see him whisper
something into his trainer's ear?  

Good for Leija.  He really dug this one out.

And when you think of the lesson Tszyu handed Leija.......
