I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have been very, very busy recently. I'll try to respond to your PM tommorow.
Regarding Donaire vs Mathebula, I just watched Mathebula's title winning effort and I believe that he is a very good boxer. Who will win? I believe it will competitive but considering that Nonito is Bob Arum's next cash cow after Manny Pacquiao and Mathebula's lack of knockouts, I find it hard to see the South African emerging with both belts, but I do believe that he will win some rounds and give a good account of himself. I'm curious to see how Donaire deals with a busy boxer who can box very well going backwards because his last two opponents both tried to do that and I thought Donaire looked terrible in both of those bouts, and it seems to me that Mathebula is better equipped to win than they were, because he is busier and has height and reach advantages that he can use.
Thanks, I saw it. I like Mathebula a lot, I stick to what I said that he's better and more dangerous than Arce. The height adventage is going to be huge, I wonder how Donaire deals with it. It's much better fight than people are giving it credit.
The Matthysse-Soto fight was good and I enjoyed it. I would have liked to see it go a bit longer, but I will give Soto a pass because he's been in a lot of tough fights and has a lot of wear and tear on his body. Plus I think Matthysse was going to beat him anyway, even though I had him up and it was only a 10 rounder. I think I had Lucas beating Judah, can't quite remember, and I haven't seen the Alexander fight but it seems like 80-90% of people believe that he should have won it.
I didn't see many bad scorecards from him though, only Pendleton - Ruelas when he was probably infuenced by a crowd and it was like 15 years ago. I had Lopez up also, but by 1 point only.
You saw Matthysse fight also? I like Lucas a lot, should be undefeated in my opinion, but I'm glad he learned from last 2 fights and started faster.
