Never in person that I can remember (maybe a crappy undercard fight somewhere), but many times on tv or on youtube.

The guy above me is correct: Ricardo Lopez was a phenom. People don't appreciate just how good he was since he fought as a minimumweight, but IMO he's top 10 p4p all-time, right up there with guys like Willie Pep and Joe Louis. No flaws in his style and had great power for his size.

The strawweight and light flyweight division fights are not aired much since the Ricardo Lopez and Michael Carbajal days.

Finito and Calderon are both worth watching. For hours. :)

You know,.... I too have never seen a Strawweight fight,........ maybe I'm waiting for Fluffweight division, just so the Strawweights look a bit bigger... I still struggle to come to terms with how small Jimmy Wilde was ............................ a McGoorty thread bump.

I didn't see this live but I have the recording. Not sure if this was considered "Straweight" though. Great fight.
