I know it's after 6am, but did any of you stay up/set your early alarms for the Mijares bout?

With jpab gone, the chances of a "yes" surely plummet.

Anyway, Mijares looked godly.

Toyed with his opponent, beat the snot out of him, and knocked him out in style.

Mijares' power really does seem to have improved with the move up.

Didn't see the fight, but with British refs, Ali would have lost the Rumble in the Jungle, we would never have seen Castillo-Corrales 1 or Gatti-Ward...it is amazing that Moore-Jones 2 or so many other classic fights got to become classics.

British refs are ****ing pussies, no two ways about it. None of them have any balls whatsoever, all they're concerned about is the ever lurking memory of Watson/Eubank. It was over 2 decades ago, fellas. Sickening thing is the BBBoC seem to applaud this type of refereeing. Nobody wants to see a brave ref but the chance of actually seeing a classic war in a British ring is absolutely minimal, the chance of seeing at least a couple of embarrassing stoppages on a card are about 100%. Really is a terrible time to be a fan of the sport from an officiating POV, as many as if not more robberies than ever and not even good refereeing to fall back on.

pretty bad stoppage,crolla could of gone on,but matthews was getting to him,he was the one doing the hurting.
like everyone has said,he needs to get a new trainer,fighting with you face is not good practice at all

Abner is going to run up to 122

Chemito is hunting him down.

Moreno beats Mares in a close fight IMO.

Aye, agree that Moreno beats Mares but I don't think it'll be that close.

Really hope Moreno/Mares happens next. I'd favour Chemito but wouldn't write Mares off too much. He's really impressed me in his last 2 fights and doesn't low blow anymore

Oh yeah, I think it could well be a very dirty fight.

Gotta love Mares' attitude in his interview with Jim Gray when he said "who cares if you win or lose, I just wanna be in good fights!"

It won't be too close, mate.

It'll look not dissimilar to the DLM win, minus the body shot knockdowns.
