Unexpected ending? I figured the overwhelming majority had favored Donaire and by stoppage.

Now THERE'S a fight i really don't care about, Wlad-Haye. All I know is that I'm going to poke fun at the loser.

Destined to be anti-climatic, anyway.

I actually think David Haye could conceivably beat Wladimir Klitschko, but I don't think the fight could ever be an entertaining, two way battle. Neither fighter takes a good enough shot at Heavyweight to sustain any real punishment.

True enough... I guess I just want something to happen in the Heavyweight division.

Still though the chances are Wlad jabs him to death just like everyone else.

I don't see Donaire being so spectacularly good that he can expect to jump up two divisions and handle the best operators in and around Featherweight, which is some of the talk I've been hearing from even some of the more respected posters in the General. One step at a time.
Montiel outweighed Donaire. By eight pounds, I think. Just sayin', brah.

He's taller. He was fairly outweighed in the ring. Just sayin', brah. They were both flyweight champs, brah. Brah, just sayin', brah.

Taller. Looked significantly bigger both in the ring and when they were standing next to another during the build-up. This was not a 50/50 fight. You would struggle to find too many credible posters on ESB who were favoring Montiel. Donaire ultimately did what he was expected to do, and there has been an overreaction since. No question.
