  • Between Teri Harper and Natasha Jonas, you now have two smaller lightweights with belts at junior middleweight. Whoever wins between Dicaire and Mary Spencer should have a good chance at being undisputed.
    Hopefully someone, somewhere suspends Bracamonte. He’s fought 30 rounds in seven months and got stopped in his last fight. Save that man from himself.

  • Maxi Hughes record is 26-5-2. Get it right guys. Fantastic effort Maxi. Looks like Galahad is heading down the other side of the hill now.

    • Galahad is too small for lightweight I think. Super feather at best. Would be interesting to know the “fight night weights”

  • It’s now time for LeKaren’s assessment of tonight’s fights.

    My advice to Kid Galahad is RETIRE. Your career is done. You are done. You are finished. You are toast. Find another job. Cross apply that to Hannah Rankin. Hannah, you got your ass beat by a super featherweight, who got smoked bad by another super featherweight. If you cannot deal with super featherweights, you too need to hit the bricks.

    Now let’s talk about the embarrassment of the card. Solomon Dacres. DUDE … You looked like shit against a guy who is more suited for an all you can eat buffet, than he is a boxing match. If you can’t handle this, you sure as hell cannot handle the big leagues. If Joseph Parker wants a confidence builder after tonight’s loss, you are it. Dacres, your status as a pro has decreased. You are worse than the stock markets. Hit the bricks. You are toast.
