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=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…
