lora isn't guilty of that, to be fair.


I agree with you, kinda, where Casamayor is concerned though. It's true he was beaten by Santa Cruz, but he basically turned back the clock against Katsidis, and he looked goodish against Marquez. Marquez, of course, became the first man to knock him out in his first fight at the weight. Whatever else he was, Casamayor certainly wasn't the easiest fight Marquez could have made at the weight.
