2014 Boxing Round Of The Year: Francisco Vargas – Juan Manuel Lopez, Round 3

It comes as no great surprise that boxing’s most compelling fixture – another episode in the ongoing saga between Puerto Rican and Mexican prize fighters – produced 2014’s Round of the Year (as was the case in 2012). Equally unsurprising, perhaps, was Juan Manuel Lopez’s inclusion on the Puerto Rican side of the tie. “JuanMa,” as Lopez is known, had been saddled with...

Fighters of the Week

Luke Irwin: 1. Saul Alvarez: See below. 2. Erislandy Lara: I had it 117-114 for Lara, but I’m not outraged, I figured he would outbox Alvarez, but it’s not a robbery. He should have, and more importantly, COULD HAVE, done more. He was more concerned with making his defense and footwork look great than scoring with combos and good punches. It was there, he didn’t take it. 3...
