I loved how they were squawking about how they need to raise the bar and
have Bojado fight higher quality fighters only to see Panchito get his ***
whipped.  He looked soft.  He probably didn't train much for this fight.
The old celebrity thing kicking in.  Hanging with the honeys and thinking
you're unbeatable.  This was a reality check.

I've always believed that it's got to be near impossible for a fighter to
get over a loss that comes with they're 20-something and 0 and have fought
"real" opponents.  He's lucky this happened now.  Maybe he'll come back down
to earth.

  I couldnt agree more he is very lucky something like this happened now.
It gives him time to adjust his style a little and plan what to do when a
guy doesnt fall down the first time Bojado looks mean at him.
IMO, Bojado will be a better fighter for the experience.  If he had gotten
KO'd that would be something completely different.  Can wait for the
Kellerman take on this.  Max really should leave these young guys alone he
is the kiss of death.

You give Kellerman too much credit , he is a boxing personality not a
boxing anaylst. Kellerman's record of picking winners is what, 1 winner
out of 12 in big fights?

Kellerman is not a credible boxing anaylst, bring back Al Bernstein!

I still have nothing but respect for Bajado. He lost gracefully and with no
excuses and will become a much better fighter for it. Rubio came out and
fought the fight of his life. Bajado hit him with Bombs all night long and
Rubio just got stronger and kept coming forward. The low blow that Bajado
landed appeared to be unintentional. I salute both fighters for a hell of a
fight.  Both showed heart and determination, Bajado will still grow to
become one of the best fighters in years. If I was his manager, I would be
happy that this happened to him now and not after 20 padded fights. Next
time you see Bajado, He will be spectacular and hopefully everytime after
that. Rubio will get a much bigger purse for his next couple fights and then
fade to oblivion and everyone (especially the fans) wins. Boxing needs more
like Bajado and Rubio.

Al Bernstein was great!  A "professor" to all analysts (especially
Kellerman, the "boxing personality")!  I really miss Bernstein's
observations and honest, incisive analysis. I learned a lot from him...

Miguel Cotto would have hurt bojado real bad if they fought.
  I'm going to say it again, but on different fighters Miguel will win
because he beat bojado in the armature.

Kellerman speaks his mind and has a lot of  knowledge about boxing.

Actually that has little to do with it although it did happen a short
time ago.

Cotto would definitely beat Bojado in my estimation, he would do it
because:

1) He could take Bojado's punch.

2) Because he is clearly the more mature, intelligent, and versatile
boxer.

3) He has longer arms and a better jab which he makes good use of.

4) He has a MUCH, MUCH better defence, better footwork that keeps his
balance while Bojado can be a bit unsteady and he is far better
conditioned.

People may not think of Coto as a master boxer ala Whitaker or
Mayweather but IMO he would take Bojado to school before KOing him
late. Cotto is a very well rounded solid fighter he lacks in no aspect
whatsoever other than having slightly above average hand speed.

Say what you will about Bojado = Chavez/Lopez/Salvador etc but IMO
Cotto shows the potential to me one of the most solid fighters since
Marvellous Marvin.

The similarities are there, steely focus on being nothing other than a
great Professional Prize Fighter, no wasted motion inside the ring
just textbook MO, great conditioning, solid power, unimaginative but
solid well balanced footwork, dexterity, polished boxing skills,
compact build with strong legs.

Laugh all you want but the next Ali/Hagler/Etc will come one day
eventually and this Cotto kids impresses the hell out of me and who is
to say he won't be special, his focus, versatility and maturity after
so few fights impresses me more than Bojado's flashy fists and 100 KOs
in a row.

That was a great fight, and I hope Bojado will learn from this experience.
I was just curious about the way he was "bending in half" after Rubio got
him against the ropes.  Has anyone else ever seen this style/defense before?
Or was he just out of gas?

Reality set in for the hyped Bojado. After a mere handful of fights,
it is not fair to put such high expectations on the kid. He might
develop into something great, or maybe a notch below like a Gatti or
maybe bomb out entirely.
