Ringside report by Andreas Hale

They say that the Mexico vs. Puerto Rico rivalry is one of the best in boxing. That’s certainly not a lie. They said, for weeks, that the fight between Juan Manuel Lopez and Rafael Marquez could equate to the dramatic back and forth drubbing that Diego Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo delivered in their fight of the decade showdown back in 2005. Again, that wasn’t a lie either. It started to turn into a similar slugfest but a shoulder injury to Rafael Marquez caused a remarkable fight to be stopped abruptly at the end of the eighth round to award Juan Manuel Lopez the TKO victory as he retained his WBO featherweight title in front of 4813 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas . . . click here for more

It happens in boxing. Sometimes the boxer with lesser ability wins. And sometimes an underdog boxer just happens to have the champion’s number. Iran Barkeley did twice beat the legendary Thomas Hearns. Brawler Ricardo Mayorga defeated Vernon Forrest on two occasions. Forrest twice beat Shane Mosley. And Mosley, in turn, just knew how to rout Oscar de la Hoya two times around. On Saturday, the same scenario occured when limited, battled-scarred veteran Gilberto Keb Baas (33-20-4) upset the much more touted Omar Nino (30-3-2) and wrested the WBC light flyweight title from his grasp.
