[QUOTE=Babalu11;13401422]Paez Jr is a talented lazy @ss, he should be fighting at 140, even 135. He looked slow and fat in his last fight.[/QUOTE] Amen to that!

[SIZE="3"]Didn't Teddy Atlas once say that Urango retired and went back to Columbia to become a Pig Farmer or something. I guess he has had enough.[/SIZE]

Cool s[color=black]h[/color]it. Urango's my boy, so I'm just glad to see him getting back into things. He might not beat the slicksters at 147, but put him in against guys who come to fight like Bradley, Guerrero, Provodnikov, Khan, Maidana…
