  • Hey Granados! You’re career is a wrap bro! Fighting to a draw against a cat with only 11 fights?? You have now relegated yourself to journeyman status! That win against Iman was as close as you got!!

    • Have to agree after so many wars it is about time for Adrian to seriously start thinking about packing it in. He just could never get the nod and pull off the close ones. A little what if. Give him the 5 losses by split and majority decision and the 3 draws on his record and things look a lot different at 29-3. It’s boxing though…
