[QUOTE=JmH Reborn;14154879]That broken nose he suffered in the Siri fight was the best thing to ever happen to that dude - he went from p4p the top 5 ugliest dudes around to fall into at least top 50. Big props…

Easy fight for Garcia. He should have no problems disposing of Burgos within 6-7 rounds.

Let's have Mikey get up to 140, along with Gamboa, and have them both clean out stiffs like Rios, Alvarado, Judah...

This is an underrated fight, Burgos hasn't had much luck with the judges but I had him beating both Amidu and Martinez.
