Me too! Crushed him with a body shot didn't he? Got the better of Chacon twice, admittedly Chacon lost focus like Olivares at times and struggled to make 126 due to his out of ring antics, but still, 2-1 in that series blunts 0-2 against Herrera a bit.

Gomez faced much better fighters than Canizales. Look how he dissected Davila. Past his best and without the dynamic movement of his best performances he gritted it out and smashed Pintor. Zarate wasn't at a size disadvantage (they both struggled to make 122 for whatever reason) and Gomez abused him and smacked him up like he beat up his little brother.

Good points Flea. I wasn't trying to suggest Gomez's resume was nearly as thin as Canizales. I think Sanchez had attributes which could (and did)neutralize Gomez's skillset. Gets me to wondering about someone at 122, clearly Gomez's best weight, who wouldn't be punked by Gomez's exceptional movement. Maybe someone like a Miguel Lora.
It kind of illustrates Gomez's greatness at that weight because it's difficult to think who could foil him in that way.

Has anyone ever seen any footage going about of Gomez Vs Sakad/Sagat Portvanee/Petchyindee?

just watching burgos beat the shit out of martinez from the card last night. so of course, martinez gets the decision. some close rounds, not a close fight.

this is 2 in a row as i had him losing pretty clearly to beltran as well. at least that was a great fight that COULD have gone either way (if you're puerto rican).

couldn't give less of a shit what martinez does from here

Well, he actually only received the draw. Even that result was a huge gift, though. Tough to give Rocky any more than four rounds (I gave him three personally)

Smacking around Zarate didn't look awfully hard to do though. He looked as though he might have fallen over if you breathed on him a little too hard. Controversial!

Yeah right. Hence why he had a gunfight with Alfonso Zamora.

Don't rate him, breh. ...Zarate or Zamora. Olivares would have sat them both down inside 8 rounds.

**** knows how Herrera battered Olivares twice then.

And I'm sure Olivares would've battered Zamora early doors...as Zarate did.

Was Pintor not all that either? Would love to hear your scorecard on that one actually, controversial one that.

And what about Fenech, who Zarate gave a good account of himself against nearly a decade after retiring?

Herrera isn't Zarate. He was probably actually quite good.

Zamora and Zarate, yes.

There are stories about Zarate being ill in that Gomez fight and I think he hit him when he was down at one point. I couldn't believe Gomez handled him like that at the time. It was a real shock for me.

Herrera was a bum.

He was beaten by some korean midget.

Pintor was Amir Khan of his era.

He was starched by totally unknown featherfisted japanese fighter Pamartgym Samararororoon.

Have you seen the Fenech fight? Have you seen all of Fenech's fights leading up to and after the Zarate bout?

Herrera was fantastic BTW but not infallible. Zarate may well have caught Olivares with similar shots.
