Decent night of boxing on Showtime and I’m sure most are ready for the upcoming bouts!
I didn’t know what to make of the Kauffman/Wallin fight but I’ve read that Kauffman’s called it a career. The preflight discussion of him contemplating retirement in the event of consecutive losses didn’t give me the idea he was gonna go out there and give it his all. I appreciate everything’s he’s done in the division if he is indeed calling it a career.
Rolly...this Rolly kid has been on my IG timeline for the past couple of weeks and he didn’t give me a reason to be a fan of his. He overcommitted to every punch throughout the fight and came off as a one trick pony. Marinez boxed beautifully and countered Rolly all night long. He took some of his best shots and still fought a disciplined fight...just to get jobbed the way he did. Smh. This Rolly kid is getting trolled so bad on social media but he knew he got a gift. Lol
I had no interest in the Benavidez fight but managed to get through 5 rounds before losing interest. We hear so much about this kid’s age and how he’s growing out of the division and so on, but, he’s still a professional athlete. He knows better.
He has basically delayed the idea of a Plant/Benavidez unification bout and the only ones who that can fix it is himself and Sulaimán. I’m sorry, but I just didn’t like his attitude about missing weight.
