Great fight, flyweight is really awesome lately. Mthalane is among the most underrated fighters in boxing, I think he may be the best at 112. Too bad that regardless of who wins between Marquez and Viloria, I can't really see…

It could be that he fights at 112 pounds why he gets much attention.

This guy gets no respect. He has been the only fighter to school donaire. Shame he was on his way to beating him till he was cut.
