    Yep, I watched it and it was a beating and a half Spence gave Garcia. :eek:

    A BIG beating! :(

    Garcia is one tough cookie! His team told him if he doesn't show them that he is trying to do something, they would have ended it in the 11th or 12th, but Garcia told them no and he kept doing the best he could.

    Garcia took a big chance on this fight, but it didn't work out for him. He was very humble in defeat.

    Spence?? Man!! What a beast! Manny P jumped in the ring after the fight and they talked about having a fight there. :eek:

    What is Manny thinking? Spence will retire Manny, I'm telling you.

    Spence and Crawford are best in their division! I hope they end up fighting each other, would be a travesty if they didnt.

    Shields vs Hammer too If anyone is interested in women's boxing, This one is "The One" to watch.
    2 x Olympic Gold medalist, Undefeated IBF, WBC and WBA champion Claressa Shields (8-0, 2 KOs) and undefeated WBO Champion Christina Hammer (24-0, 11 KOs).

    The Loma fight, I will watch. I just don't see Loma losing this fight.

    Yep, Lomachenko destroyed Crolla. :eek:

    He definitely one of a kind! Can't wait to see who he fights next. :D

    I watched that Shields VS Hammer fight also. I was working, but watched the replay of the fight.

    What a fight! Shields is brilliant!! Congrats to her. :D

    Shields fought very well. Very focused. Her only downfall is, she doesn't have enough power.
    I try to figure her out:
    Her punches are thrown with ALOT of speed and weight behind them. Is it the precision or (lack of) maybe what effects the power behind it?
    I can't figure it out.
    I loved her defense. After the 1st round, She totally had Hammer figured out. Hammer's punches were all telegraphed. Shields bob'ed, weaved then countered all of them. Beautiful work!

    Hammer was no competition for Shields. Fight was underwhelming imo.

    Lomachenko was a beast. Hope he fights Garcia soon.

    That's the ONLY match up I see for both that makes sense.
