Pedroza had a war with Lujan, much smaller and past his best. Still a good win and gave a good effort against Bazza of course. Still a quality win but essentially at home for McGuigan despite being Irish.
20,000 travelled over to loftus road. Took McGuigan 10-15mins for his ring walk. You bet he felt at home
