    Maybe I'm blind, but I saw Figueroa doing rock em sock em robots just like his brother does. Good that he got the belt, but now what? I mean... correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't he need some actual boxing skills now that he's in this league? How long can he keep fighting like this and not get stopped?

    Depends on the chin I guess. Omar was a 135 pound fighter who didn't get stopped until a 147 fighter caved his ribs in

    Yes, another fan made the point about Omar moving up when he shouldn't have. I'd forgotten about that. Thanx.

    Yes indeed. Hopefully he doesn't turn into another Pavlik, and can turn things around. Maybe fight some lesser opponents for a while.
