That was a wonderful Showtime card. Two excellent true fights.

Soto and Matthyse really went at it. Both came to fight and fight hard. Soto was faster and showed some good skill and generalship, but Lucas Matthyse is an absolutely monster of strength. You simply cannot outfight the guy, and even if you try to outbox him, he's going to track you down and club you to death. Fun fighter. Can't wait to see him again. Soto is still a darn good fighter and has entertaining fights left in him, but he can't war with a big strong 140 pounder, and either belongs at 135, or needs to fight a 140 guy who is not so darn powerful.

It didn't seem possible, but the main event topped it. Josesito Lopez put on the surprise performance of the year and pulled off the upset of the year. I was really impressed. He showed speed, combinations, ability to lead or counter, enough power to stun Ortiz on several occasions, gameness, not being afraid to mix it up, versatility, being able to attack or box as he chose, and serious heart, for he took some mighty powerful blows that left his face puffy and marked up, and he was slightly stunned here and there, but he also showed intelligence by clinching and wrestling to take away Victor's momentum. Fight reminded me of the Maidana bout in that both guys administered and absorbed a lot of punishment. Lopez was loose and relaxed, busy, in great shape, and obviously highly motivated. Ortiz showed toughness too, for he was taking bombs and bombing back, trying to make adjustments, which actually had him ahead on the scorecards at the time of the stoppage.

Ortiz retired in his corner after the 9th round, claiming a broken jaw. I believe him. His mouth was hanging open and he was having troubles closing it, and even when he spoke in the interview he sounded like he was having a speech impediment with that jaw. After he went to the dressing room you could just see the blood oozing from his mouth, and he still could not close his jaw.

I know a lot of folks will criticize his heart, and even I was tempted to do so, but upon further reflection, I think he deserves better from the fans and media, for he treated us to a wonderful war. If you play safety first and stink it out, you won't get your jaw broken and no one will criticize your heart. I think he showed heart by fighting a competitive battle and taking a lot of hard blows and going at it as hard as he could until his jaw just couldn't handle it any longer. True, there are those who showed more heart by continuing with broken jaws, but that does not mean Ortiz has no heart for not doing so. He took a lot of punishment. Ironically, he probably won the 9th round. But he was in there with a live, frisky guy who had enough pop to hurt him, and if he could not close his jaw, he was going to get badly injured from that point on.

Jaw broken is no excuse to quit, what the **** sport are we watching. Tarver is another who fought on with a broken jaw against Harding. Ortiz jaw most likely isn't even broken anyway.

He's asked if this is the best performance of his career. He says it's up there with his performances against Judah and Alexander, which he feels were his best, but this was the best one that wasn't left in the judges' hands.
Mattjysse said Soto also hits pretty hard. "Pega Duro"

After watching the fight, well GREAT fight, not as good as Soto vs Matthysse imo, but very close, now anybody disrespecting Ortiz is no true Boxing fan, of coarse you will call him a quitter and a bitch, you won't be dealing with the broken jaw or possible KO due to the broken jaw, the guy gave us a great fight, what have you so called Boxing fans done for the sport beside post comments???

Much respect to Both fighters, great Fight!
