Now we know why Chavez Jr never fought Wolak even though it had been discussed more than once...

WOLAK!! WOLAK!! Yuri gave up in his corner. Pawel will finally get the shot at the title he deserves. You gotta love his style, kind of reminds you of Frazier. Congrats!!!!!!

Vasquez is outpointing zappa beautifully. Jab, straight, lean back and get out of there.
