Default Vic fights tomorrow

Vic's fighting tomorrow. A fight he would be expected to win. Shame there's no apparent coverage of it..

strange choice of opponent. you'd think they would have picked someone ranked a little higher.

Vic needs to start making heads hit the canvas again.

Bounce this guy out like a rubber ball and move onto the next one.

I'd like to see him have another fight like this and then a title shot against the bloke who beat Mijares for the WBC Super Bantam title.

I think they'll probably take the title shot next fight which is too soon, imo.

Build momentum, then take the title shot.

There has already been discussion for Vic, when he comes through this bout to fight vs Victor Terrazas the WBC Super Bantam Champ in the HBO co-feature slot at the newly built 18,000 seat Mexico City Arena, Mexico City on the Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs Martin Murray/Brian Vera card on August 3rd.

Sounds great and less than 3 months away! I like Vic against any Mexican because they dont tend to dance and be slick and counter (like a Moreno), just come forward and trade..

Hopefully we can see some fight footage of today's matchup in the coming days.

I'd lean towards Terrazas but it's a winnable fight for Vic...One I will look forward to watching if it comes off.

A couple of reports i have now "scene" - sounds like it was an action-packed, crowd-pleasing typical macho Vic kinda performance that unfortunately causes people to say he will have little chance against the better 'boxing' types.. Gotta love Vic though - cant wait for the footage!

Might look for some footage of Terrazas while im at it. Rigondeaux might be the other option by the look of it.

His fight with Mijares is on the tube baha..I thought Mijares edged it and he dropped Terrazas pretty hard aswell..easily could see Vic sending him down for count based on that.

Fight the Mexican for the WBC title. If he wins, then fight Rigo.

Im on the other side of the fence then. He's provided me with many enjoyable fights over the years..

Just watched his fight against Gallo - A typical, predictable, entertaining performance against an overmatched opponent. He did walk into a couple of staggering right hands as he was wildly going in for the kill a couple of times and definitely needs to watch that (esp against the classier fighters). Well done though, bring on next!

Just watched it. Very entertaining fight while it lasted.

I think it was just what Vic needed. Fast paced, with plenty of intensity and it didn't go for too long.

Full credit to Gallo for really having a go and trying to win the fight. He clearly hurt Vic twice at the back end of both the first and second rounds.

Ideally, I'd like to see Vic have another fight like this and then take a title shot for the WBC Super Bantam belt.

While his chin is starting to look a little shaky, he still packs plenty of heat in those punches.

I think he got caught with a few because of the level of his opponent. One would hope he would be more cautious against a better calibre fighter.

shows he still has power at featherweight, he is always exciting to watch, with age I think his chin could be suspect, you never know what type of performance vic is going to put on these days. great career, would love to see him take another title
