Default Chavez jnr/donaire card

An interesting toprank card today.

Whats more interesting....just learnt that chavez jnr was arrested on jan 21 for DUI.

Rumors that he struggled making weight again. Being on the sauce two weeks before fight night wouldnt have helped.

Fights are starting now. This would be a perfect card for Fox Sports to be showing...

Wow... what fight was Rubin Garcia watching? 115-112 for Vazquez is a horrible score.

Chavez won a very slow boring fight IMO, not much to write home about

Yeah these sort of cards we should be able to see on fox sports but boxing fans in this country have always been treated badly. It's a shame.

Two fights where the size disparity told the tale.

Donaire and chavez jnr too big and strong for their opponents.

Donaire sure has a good left hook. Chavez absolutely bullied Rubio in there.

Donaire is fast and hits hard, wouldnt want to see him climb in weight anymore though. He looked maxed out today. Busted his hand too, i think he broke it.

Yeah, chavez just too strong in close, rubio couldnt go with him inside. Dont know how chavez got away with using his head to ram back...got a few soft warnings but he did it all fight. He wasnt butting with it.....but he'd put his head on ruubio's forehead and nudge him back to get leverage. Thats a foul. But he didnt look like a fighter who lost 8 lbs in the last two days and was on the sauce two weeks ago. Recovered mighty well.

He recovered incredibly well. I thought he'd fade down the stretch but he didn't come close. He's a tough outing for any Middleweight, if for no other reason than he's a Cruiser by fight time!

Donaire did terrific especially after seeing his hand post match.

Chavez Jr is a HUGE middleweight & will give any top 10er some issues.

Nonito's hand looked ****ed post fight, wraps covered in blood and he was screaming when they pulled the glove off.

I was hoping Rubio pulled off the upset, I got a soft spot for the mighty mutant Mexican
