Sounds like the commentators are rightfully mocking that scorecard turned in by Guillermo Pineda.
Lol, no. Gonzalez' record completely empty and was +500 to win.
Nope, odds were even wider than Castillo-Gonzalez and the favorite won.
Only looked at this show once or twice.
Was good to hear the voice of wrestling, good Ole JR
Ah, well... I was going by the placement of the names on BoxRec, a sometimes reliable but hardly foolproof method of determining who the A-side is (based on how the promoters submit the card info to its editors, with the format usually dictating A-sides - usually but not always the house fighter, and usually but not always the favorite - on the left and the 'opponent' in the starboard column).
On a British or American show the 8-0 guy would be the fave over somebody with a record such as Lenín Castillo's in 99% of cases, even with the latter having faced better competition. Guess it goes to show just how much padding goes on in Latin America.
(but also, Lenín Castillo and Hector García - both of whom BoxRec has ex post factor sneakily moved into the left column as is their next-day wont - are Dominicans, while their opponents were foreigners, which I guess should've tipped me off. So, mea culpa )
Lots of blasts from the past besides JR; you should check it out some more. Last two episodes have been dynamite indeed, and next Wednesday could blow them both away.
I still don't regret giving this Shuan Boxing card live viewing priority last night, though - even as sleep-deprived as it has left me. The whole undercard leading up to both slightly disappointing co-main events was excellent, aside from the dismal heavyweights.
Everybody should check out that kayo by Ángel Cruz.
