    Obviously outside of Salido. I've also seen Mikey and both De Leon. They were good.

    Mtagwa?!?!?!

    Perhaps the best fight I've been to live, and I was ringside for Bika vs. Codrington..

    Pretty much all of them, guy was a no defence banger. All of the above and even made a fun fight out of a three rounder with concepcion sporting pibk gloves in what should have been a simple walkthrough.

    In the first de Leon bout was he counter-boxing from the ropes. There used he a pretty effective defence (tight guard), in the first round.

    It was obviously the Salido fights, it ended all the hype that Lopez was the next Trinidad lol

    And killed the Lopez-Gamboa fight. Well done Arum, you marinated the **** out of that one!

    I think Lopez-Gamboa was being set up last year or so, but fell through for some reason.
    *They co-headlined a card in 2018. This again was to "marinate" the fight :lol:
    Both won but nothing cam of it. The promoter likely lost money, or there just wasn´t enough on the table.

    Gamboa signed with PBC instead and got the Davis fight which will have been more money, hes now got the Haney fight so turning into a bit of world level journeyman/gatekeeper in his old age. I imagine Lopez was the plan when there was no opportunities but it doesnt make a great deal of cash in 2020.

    You would have thought that Al Haymon would have learned lessons on what no to do from Bob Arum mistakes but no. Fights he’s had a hand in not making while the iron was hot:

    Charlo vs Hurd WBC/WBA/IBF unification

    Spence vs Thurman WBC/WBA/IBF unification

    Russel vs Santa Cruz WBC/WBA unification

    Wilder vs AJ Undisputed (I do believe he and Hearn has a gentleman’s agreement to milk the fans they he and Bob did MayPac)

    Spence vs Crawford WBC/WBA/WBO unification

    Kovalev vs Stevenson Undisputed

    Tank vs Loma IBF/WBO unification at 130

    Plant vs Benavidez WBC/IBF unification..

    The irony in this is just perfect.
    Some promoter thought he would snatch up a once big fight, but he made the same mistake that killed the fight in the first place.
    Marinating fights rarely works out. Putting out constant high level bouts is the key.
    There is a reason Don King did so well.

    I think to be fair, that fight in 2018 had little significance other then finishing off the "What would have happened" w/ JuanMa and Gamboa. Hell, Juanma was essentially done in 2014. Juanma and gamboa should really have happened before the Salido fiasco.

    Can someone name some more? I've seen all of the ones mentioned. I want more!

    There's one mentioned in the Salido fight, where they talk about the fight where Juanma was first dropped. It either lasted eight, or he was dropped in eight.
