George vs. Lopez a Draw, Cintron-Granados is a Draw Too

UIC Pavilion, Chicago - ESPN's Friday Night Fights was a doubleheader filled with controversial draws. Donovan George (24-3-2, 21KOs) continued his gradual slide to 160-pounds and appeared to have earned a ten round unanimous decision, but the judges felt otherwise and scored his fight with David Lopez (41-13-1, 23KOs) as a ten round draw. The scores were 97-94 for Lopez, 96-94 for George and 95-95 for the draw. George had a tougher tough than expected, but Lopez did very little in many of the rounds and didn't display the desire to win in the late rounds.

Adrian Granados (11-2-2, 7KOs) appeared to be on the verge of the biggest win of his career, but had to settle for a ten round draw with former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron (33-5-2, 28KOs). The scores were 96-94 for Granados, 97-93 for Cintron and a 95-95 for the draw. Cintron was making his return to the welterweight division and he did not look good. Granados, moving up from 140-pounds, boxed well and stunned Cintron several times in the fight.

Featherweight prospect Hairon Socarras (7-0-1, 5KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over Sergio Montes de Oca (7-2-1, 2KOs). De Oca went down in the first round from a grazing shot. The scores were 40-35 across the board.

[QUOTE=Russian Crushin;13179221]I'm not sure how you saw that, the rounds were very clear. Yea he missed alot but landed way more and with much better more effective punches. When cintron decided to throw, he usually landed werent even that good…

[QUOTE=ddangerous;13179211]Like I said, I thought Granados won the fight. I just didn't think it was some runaway. He was more aggressive, yes, but he was missing a lot. Cintron, when he was throwing, was more accurate with his punches. Still…

[QUOTE=Russian Crushin;13179161]This fight was very easy to score, Granados very clearly won 7 rounds and cintron only won 2 clearly. The other round, the 1st, was also a Granados round. This was an easy win for Granado, he won 4X…

[QUOTE=rey guey;13177204]any of you notice how guys aren't the same after they fight Sergio Martinez? Cintron was never the same after Martinez KOed him, yeah I know it was a draw but any who actually saw the fight will know…

[QUOTE=ddangerous;13175422]You're not alone. I had Granados up 1, maybe 2, rounds going into the 12th, although I thought he closed out much stronger than Cintron and deserved the nod. Cintron talking about fighting 5 more fights is a very bad…
