What does Thompson's nickname mean I know what Yeyo refers to in the Scarface sense but that can't be the same here is it Spanish or just something random?

Alvarez going in2 the lion's den vs Yeo, a different type guy that's physical, far more than Omar, can punch & (not the brittle handed Omar in his last fight, & a possible career threatening problem, i's happening 2 often…

this card shouldn't even be on PPV but since hbo has pacman vs bradley then cotto vs martinez, showtime had to do another ppv instead of just mayweathers ppv

ricardo alvarez isn't anything special, i wouldn't doubt if he loses to Yeyo. Omar is a big light weight, i think he probably had a hard time making weight but was also sore from his hands bcuz lets face it…
