Eamonn Loughran TKO3 Donovan Boucher.

Total madness this one, Loughran hits and hurts the Commonwealth champion in the first, but it seems as though Boucher, who wasn't a million miles away from top class, was boxing back when Loughran stung him to the seat of his pants with a picture perfect left hook thrown just behind a tidy one-two. Boucher looked out on his feet once he gathered himself from his draped position upon the ropes, and Loughran duly sent him headfirst below the bottom rope and all but onto the floor before the referee stepped in to stop things. Boucher was done, and Loughran got the (WBO) title shot the Canadian had never been able to muster...still, cracking little miniature.

No doubting his victory over avelar was top class nor am I doubting his deep resume.

I'm just saying that, on film, he doesn't look as good as others i've been watching lately and out of the modern hof fighter's he's arguably the least impressive on film out of those i've seen.

I disagree completly, Canto is very very good on film.

Chucho Castillo vs Ernie Cruz

Lovely performance this by Castillo, who is fast becoming one of my favrouites to watch.

Cruz starts very well with lunging, but fast, attacks punctuated with his looping right hand. He looks an awkward creature to deal with.

In the second Castillo starts to jab with authority and really puts it on Cruz with lovely left hooks and uppecuts to head and body. And when Castillo gets inside he bobs and weaves wonderfully to make Cruz miss. One of the best rounds, in terms of left hand work, I have seen.

The third and fourth are similar, but less impressive and Castillo ups it in the fifth to get him out.

Chucho Castillo vs Jerry Stokes

Not much to say about this but a lovely right hand finish. Proper nasty KO.

Relativity my friend. I'm saying he doesn't look as good as those i've been watching recently. To be fair, that's guys like ali, armstrong, arguello, burley, benitez so it's no great shame.

Canto is fabulous on film, he's a little beast, I put him right up there but different folk for different folks.

Basilio stopping de marco. Benvenuti stopping lmr.

In those fights these two looked better then canto did against avelar imo.

When i'm back home i'll watch the gonzalez fights and see if I can see what you guys are seeing.

Then after that it's carter vs aroujo which i'm looking forward to

Benvenuti isn't that impressive at all IMO, but he is effective. I thought earlier you were saying you wasnt too impressed?

Canto is much more multi-faceted than Benvenuti, I'd say in every area but power and strength Canto has the edge. And clearly in some areas.

I'd say Basilio is just slightly under Canto as he was fairly multi-faceted and his style was beastly.

Benvenuti gets underrated because he was as stiff as a pedo in a nursery.
