  • The Dominican Republic churns out a steady stream of undefeated, hard punching prospects constantly. Maybe 1/8-10 of them actually have something. I was wrong about Castillo, I thought he was the goods.

    I think Shinard Bunch is going to be really good, he’s only 22 now.

  • I watched the fight – very entertaining and great action… is boxing returning to its past glory….hope so if this fight is any indication of things to come

  • Nunez calls himself the twist just wondering if anyone in here is old enough to remember Chubby Checker?

    • As a reporter (before police and retirement) I met Chubby Checker when he was playing small cities…summer festivals. A bunch of us were drunk with him In the hockey dressing room of the arena he was playing. He was holding court, ranting like a cut rate Ali. We argued over Michael Jackson being greater than Elvis. It was pouring rain outside. Chubby wouldn’t give me a riding in his bus to my place. He’d had his fill of me. Thar’s my Chubby Checker story.

      • Sounds like an act that has 15 minutes of fame and ends up working casino lounge rooms or even local fairs.

  • I liked how Nunez changed the speed on his punches. Not every shot was a home run. Lots of singles.
