  • I'm pretty sure Santillan is with TR. Maybe Barbosa or Ramirez.

    I hate to be cynical, but I think we know what to expect. GBP is going to do the same thing they've been doing with Munguia and Vergil (post-147): careful and calculated matchmaking to keep the gravy train going as long as...

  • I was thinking the same thing....just the other way around. Martinez will be a year inactive by the time he faces Ioka....

  • Please let Barroso get his title shot, assuming Cruz is staying at 140 to defend his title.

  • It's not like fans are known for being even-keeled, especially right after a fight where adrenaline and emotions are running high. It's a combination of people who hate Haney's style, and others who were hoping for him to suffer some comeuppance for the Loma decision. As I said after the Loma fight,...

  • Ideally, Teofimo at 140.
    More realistically, Barrios at 147.

  • I think Garcia could've done a better job anticipating Haney's clinches and trying to catch him in between. There are some fighters who make it difficult to clinch during the KO moment, and I count that as a skill that complements a boxer's killer instinct. Garcia has so much potential, but he seemingly...

  • I normally have a fight on mute, so I didn't hear the corner interactions. Very few fighters have the attributes to be effective at multiple styles. Even-though a potential tactic would be to try and smother Garcia's power, Haney doesn't have the power/stamina/size to be a pressure fighter. He doesn't...

  • I had the sound off. Was it the first KD that was long?...

  • Haney said he wanted to show his arsenal, but tonight was the time to keep everything simple and compact. He finally needs to accept that he's not a puncher, because throwing leaping lead left hooks against someone with power/speed is suicidal.

    I think Linares exposed his chin a long time...

  • There are several fighters at 140lb who can punch, so it's not like Haney will be able to avoid it forever. Call me crazy, but I don't expect him to avoid punchers. He was excessively holding while he was hurt, but as soon as his head would clear, he would try to apply front-foot pressure and would...

  • So do you think Haney will "run" it back immediately, or that he'll "run" from the rematch?

    Fans are down on him now, but that's to be expected because we can be prisoners of the moment. Ryan probably made a smart (yet expensive) decision to miss weight, because most...

  • Haney will be making a mistake if he lets pride and greed guide his decision-making. There's nothing wrong with losing and regrouping. He took some punishment tonight. People kept saying that the ref saved him from getting stopped.....but the ref would've done him a favor by stopping the fight....

  • If that's the case, I just hope he doesn't drag up someone from a division below. As long as he's fighting actual 147lbers, I'm all for it. I just don't know what opponents make sense though....

  • I don't think an immediate rematch is the best idea. The beauty of fighting at a young age, is that there's time for a rematch. Haney should heal up and defend his title (if he still has one) against Sandor Martin or try for a unification against Matias/Paro winner, while Ryan goes after Teofimo or...

  • Garcia is in an interesting position. His performance will boost his marquee value, but he doesn't have the responsibility of defending a title. What does he do now? Does he try for another belt at 140, Teofimo or Cruz? Does he move up to 147?

  • No way Haney was getting a decision on a GBP card lol

    All I hope is that this victory leads to Garcia taking his career more seriously because he showed flashes about why people got excited about him in the first place. He's been allowing the spotlight to consume him, and he needs to find...

  • If Garcia was a more complete fighter, Haney wouldn't have seen the final bell.

  • Haney's conditioning kept him up that round. Ryan needs to stay COMPOSED.
