    Excellent, well reasoned post. I agree with almost everything you state above. My only small critique is that Lopez did destroy the very capable Saman Sorjaturong. The same Sorjaturong that went on to knockout Humberto Gonzalez. (who had beaten Carbajal in both the return bout and the rubber match).

    We have to agree to disagree. Finito was a very bad dude. Gomez was too, until he faced Chava.

    And I guess nobody watched Gomez in there with Alfredo Layne. A Layne caliber fighter is not beating Finito Lopez.

    Come to think of it, when was the last time you heard the name Alfredo Layne even mentioned?

    Are you seriously using that fight as an indicator of Gomez's worth as a fighter? Jesus H. man, come on......

    Gomez has wins over Carlos Zarate and Lupe Pintor. That should already tell you who was greater.
