  • how do fighters like Mendoza allowed to fight part time fighters this dudes resume looks a Top rank fighters start of their career roster but just never stepped up just said nah im good with my $100 a round fights lol

  • Wow, Vargas junior got a win over a guy who lost five in a row, come on now step up a notch!

  • Who is 41-0 Abel Mendoza and why is he fighting 6 round fights? What’s he waiting for? He’s like a modern day Vaugn Bean. I understand the whole build your record and pad your resume thing, but I think it’s time to make a move.

    • yup that loss was his 70th lol not only that but Meraz did win his fight before but had lost 10 in a row thats what you call a true journeyman lol

  • Yes, it is true. Juan Carlos Cordones performed horribly. However, as bad as he was, he still did much better than Joe Biden did in the debate on Thursday night. Great job on that realm, Juan. A+.

  • Vargas Jr knocks out a guy who has been stopped in his last 4 fights. It seems like the promoters would pick someone a little more, ah, durable!

  • Reading the title makes you think that Vargas jr got really frustrated with his shoelaces. You see….Cordones is shoelaces….in… Spanish. Sorry for the sad joke.
