Great Thursday Night card last night by ESPN with Ray Beltran topping Ji-Hoon Kim in the main event, in a great fight.
Both guys hit the deck in the first, with Kim being VERY hurt. Some how, he survived, came out and was hurt again in the last 10 seconds of the 2nd. Same situation in the 3rd and then it was all Beltran from there. He walked into some big shots from Kim, who always comes ready to throw 1000+ punches a fight. Great way to kick off the weekend.
Some other ESPN level news, Sergiy Dzinziruk vs. Bryan Vera has been confirmed as the new main event for 1/25. Ruslan Prvodnikov was headlining the card.
Lucas Matthysse is being positioned to fight Hank Lundy on the Brook/Alexander card. I am not liking the fight for Hank. Moving up in weight and he draws the Argentine bomber who has the skills and smarts to catch Lundy during one of his oft-defensive lapses. Ouchy.
Lots of **** talking between Brandon Rios and Angel Garcia. Not shocking given the two. Just a shame it'll never happen thanks to TR and GBP. It'd be a hell of a fight if it did though.
That's been about it thus far. Slow news week as the world prepares for Manny to fight.
