Vitali Klitschko Unanimously Outpoints Chisora - ESPN
It was one of his toughest fight in a long time, but I didn't see him at any time during the fight with the possibility of losing.
He controlled the fight from begining to end, and while his opponent took some of his best shots, Vitali just brushed them away as if they were nothing.

Ex-Champ Johnny Tapia Found Dead in New Mexico - BBC Sport
Sad to hear about Johnny Tapia though not unexpected. More surprising that he was able to reach his mid-forties. I was a big fan during the mid-late 90s. I enjoyed his victory over crosstown Albuquerque rival Danny Romero the most as it appeared to exorcize a lot of ghosts for him at the time. R.I.P.
Also heard that light-welterweight Paul Williams was involved in a motorcycle accident that has left him paralyzed from the waist down. Tragic.
Jerry Roth, C.J. Ross and Duane Ford elected to make a decision that would not be embraced by the sporting community. You don't have to own the fight to own the fight. Case in point: Timothy Bradley.
Bradley Beats Pacman in Split Ruling - ESPN
Biggest fix in the history of boxing. Manny should have his final bouts in a venue outside the state of Nevada just to teach those scumbags a lesson.
down right despicable decision. I will never watch another fight from Top Rank/Bob Arum again especially a rematch between Pac & Bradley. I won't even watch the highlights unless Pac gets a KO of the Year then I'll check for the clip.
Well Manny did vow that he wasn't going to leave it up to the judges next time if there is a rematch. In his last few matches, he has been too nice to his opponents and has been letting up in the last few rounds carrying them at times. I think after this, he will go for the KO again in every match. It should be worth it to watch his fights from now on since he is such an entertaining fighter when he is committed to the KO.
Also despite the disappointing result, the Bradley fight was action packed with Bradley willing to trade punches early on so I wouldn't mind paying to watch them fight again.
I agree Bradley made a commendable effort but Pacquiao had Bradley wobbly about 4 times early in the fight and backed off each time from getting the KO/TKO. No way does the rematch deserve anyone's money.
Well better a rematch or any Pacquaio fight for that matter than watching a typical Mayweather fight although Floyd's last fight had a little more action than usual.
