If Gesta wins this big he'll be at least back in contention.

He was awful against Vazquez.

Gesta is all hype, Ajose will take it.
I like that Campillo fight.

Oh yeah, I forgot the "year" ends so damn early for them.

Granted, the boxing world en masse enters its annual drought usually near the holidays (from late October/early November through a week or two past New Years) but they really take it to an extreme with the midsummer wrap-up.

I refuse to accept that ESPN doesn't have the budget to keep it on air for another 2-3 months through fall when they can obviously splurge on a "Sports Science!" segment for everything from the mechanics of Tiger Woods' swing to a women's softball champion's underhanded throwing power.

Might go to the latter card, but how the **** is that going to work in a baseball stadium?

Good to see Ajose back in the ring. i think he ends Gestas hype once and for all.

There is still Gesta hype?

Hopefully a dominant performance can build some hype for Ajose.

Criminally overlooked in the division, hardly anybody knows him outside of diehards (the exposure on Showtime in his brave stand against Matthysse helped, as did his earlier ShoBox schooling of Chebah, but most casuals probably still have no idea who he is) when really he is top 5 h2h @ 140.

Solid. I can't believe FNF is ending this early. Usually, it is at least mid-August when we start getting Northeast Middle Wisconsin Tech football on Friday nights.

I smell a reunion with Atlas for Povetkin's big day. (10 weeks after the finale...plenty of time for camp...)
