11/21/2017- As far as fights went, last night’s action wasn’t much to write home about. Not much to be thankful for, really. In the aired opener Miguel Cruz (16-0-11K) and David Grayton, pushed mauled, tussled and butted their way to a ten round outing. This PBC affair really just amounted to ‘fights during the week’. Grayton got off to a good start behind a hard right jab while the plodding Cruz was just looking for openings.In the third and fourth rounds, Cruz found his range and rocked Grayton a couple of times with left hooks.Amid the head butts and grappling, Grayton started to peter out around the sixth when he was dropped by a straight left from Cruz. It was relatively close but Cruz was stronger at the end and strolled off with the V. In the main event, comebacking former top contender Devon Alexander (26-4-14K) had been out over two years with a shitload of issues. He fought some of the best at ’47, Randall Bailey, Maidana, Bradley Matthysee, and Porte, so there’s NO shame in his game. Tonight he was facing a tall, cumbersome, plodder, Walter Castillo (26/4/1D/19K). Color guy Sergio Mora kept insisting this guy was a real threat to the slick, agile man that calls himself “the Great”. For a guy out as long as Devon had been, he looked quite impressive. Course, he had a guy that was more into theatrics than actually fighting. Round after round, Devon handed out a boxing lesson, even dropping Castillo with a three punch set in the second round. Even with all his rough housing, he still had his ass delivered to him and Devon even went toes in the last round, this after Castillo was begging him to ‘stand and deliver’. Which, Alexander did, pitching a damn near shutout. And THEN the comedy began. Sitting ringside was WBC/WBA champion Keith (One Time) Thurman, sitting next two Berman Stiverne. I’m sure it was him because he was stuffing his face. This guy shouldn’t come outta’ his house until well after Xmas after the way HE robbed the paying fans following his SORRY ‘performance’ against Deontay Wilder. Thurman was asked the oNE question he HATES to be asked, “when are you gonna’ fight Errol Spence Jr. Now, Thurman always talks like he has a mouthful of poop when he discusses Spence. He’s been out forever with some damn elbow injury. I’ve seen people with amputations comeback faster than THIS guy. He stated he has NO plans in the immediate future of fighting the unbeaten ( 22-0-19K) IBF champion. This guy got all wide eyed and started talking about everything BUT Spence, I think I heard him talking about the Russian investigation. Later, he was on FIGHTHYPE saying, Spence has to wait his turn, the way Mayweather waited for Pacquio (WTH)? He said, he wasn’t fighting Spence in the “foreseeable future and it was not discussable”. He’s talking about “maybe in 2019”. This is SHAMEFUL, for one champion to be THAT afraid of another. When he was sitting face to face with Spence last month and Spence said, “I’m ready to go through you to unify”. I thought Thurman was gonna’ jump up and run home to his momma. When it comes to facing Spence, ‘One Time’ becomes ‘No Time’. Feather weight champ Gary Russell, boxing’s version of Haley’s comet, called out everybody except ME. He’s scheduled to fight JoJo Diaz but doubts Oscar DeLaHoya makes that match. Bulletin, Gar, JoJo will fight you, TRUST me. If you wanna’ hear more excuses than Thurman, ask Russell how he lost to Lomachenko. This guy will talk for ten damn minutes explain scales, sit-ups, the weather and whatever else comes to his mind. He said he “lost by split decision” to Lomachenko. Gary, I was sitting ringside and there was no “split, shit. You got the shit beaten outta’ you THAT night.
I’m TOO damn tired of that damn IMPOSTER, David Haye pulling outta’ fights. Between he and that GYPSY SLUG, Tyson Fury, they should both take up another sport. DeLaHoya should just stfu talking about Connor McGreggor. Floyd’s the only one that can pull off THAT kinda’ shit AND count it as legit. That shit won’t happen again, unless Floyd does it. I’m sure he’s home staring at that larger than life sized picture of Connor on his wall, THINKING OF A REMATCH AND HIS FANS CAN’T WAIT. They’re already having the ticket money deducted from their paychecks.
