Miranda rips “actress” Despaigne

Light heavyweight slugger Edison “Pantera” Miranda (34-6, 29 KOs) has ripped Yordanis Despaigne (9-1, 4 KOs), who won their fight by disqualification last Friday night at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. “I tapped Despaigne on the belt line and he fell down like he’d been shot. He’s not a fighter, he’s an actor and he was looking for a way out because he didn’t like the way the story was going to end,” said Miranda. “He got hit low a couple more times and cried on command and the fight was over. So for that performance, I am awarding him Best Actress in a Dramatic Role. He’s the new Million Dollar Baby.” Miranda says although Despaigne had some early success by “running around the ring”, by the time of referee Vic Drakulich’s disqualification, the tide had clearly turned. “He was out of gas. I let him punch me because it was like pillow fighting a girl. He knew he had to get out of there before the fight was half over because I was in amazing shape and coming on strong. If it had gone one or two more rounds, he was finished.”
