(Mancini's camp would be wise to have it contractually stipulated that John couldn't use AC/DC as his entrance music. Hearing that always whipped Verderosa into a frenzy by the time the bell rang.)

I suspect Mugabe-Hearns might look something like Mugabe-Cuevas. The Beast might have been a harder hitter than Tommy, but getting close enough to unload his guns would have been another matter.

Gomez-Pedroza is a fascinating question mark. The assumption would probably be that Eusebio couldn't take it on the chin from Gomez, but Pedroza generated incredible mileage out of his devastating early losses to Perez, Zamora and Arnal. He had the height, speed, reach, conditioning and caution necessary to survive against and outbox Gomez. But when Wilfredo tagged him, all bets would be off. This pairing really could go either way.

The 3 stoppage losses on Pedroza's early record are very decieving IMO. He MAY have been drained for 3 of them, and was definitely on the up and up. I think he'd take the Gomez blows at Feather with no worries personally, Gomez didn't carry his absolute devastation up to 126 and Pedroza easily went 15 with some pretty decent fighters.

Naw Chris, just some cheap domestic beer.(Titan1 can tell you whether or not my depiction of Verderosa is accurate.)

That's long been my suspicion as well, but it's still rather extraordinary that the increase in weight from bantam to feather translated into such a dramatically improved ability to take a punch. True, Gomez was never again as devastating as he was at 122, but he still managed to momentarily buckle Sanchez, enough so to make a rematch between them a viable prospect. I do tend to agree with you however.
