From a technical standpoint, I think Buchanan over Laugna for sure; Stracey-Napoles I think has to be largely discounted of the three by any criteria, but from a feel-good, proud "Hey, let's put boxing back on our map" kind of way I figure it would have to be McGuigan-Pedroza. Pedroza was ready to be taken, as he'd shown in recent fights against Gerald Hayes and lackluster distance-going efforts against a shot Lujan and a no-hoper in Angel Levy-Mayor, so I actually almost want to fault McGuigan for not taking him out of there altogether.
