Shumenov Wins Over Flores On Unimpressive PBC card

Beibut Shumenov (16-2, 10 KO’s) won a controversial twelve-round unanimous decision over BJ Flores (32-2, 20 KO’s). The fight overall was a poor fight that didn’t show much and had no one excited at any point. Overall this PBC card was very poor and one of the worst ones in recent memory. Aside from the KO victory of Marrero, not much happened. But I digress, back to the main...

Chavez Jr. Wins In Lackluster Fashion

TEXAS — Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. continue his boxing journey with a win over Marcos Reyes. A win yes but, something to write home about? Definitely not. Let’s side aside the fact that he clearly dwarfed his opponent by at least 20 pounds in the ring (Chavez Jr. didn’t make weight for the 168 pound bout, coming in at just over 170 pounds) Despite winning in a non-spectacular,...
