Thank you HBO for a rebroadcast this morning of last fall's bout between Rocky Martinez and Mikey Garcia~it was a good fight, evenly matched opponents for the first 5 or 6 rounds and I enjoyed their energy. Garcia knocked Martinez to the canvas 56 seconds into the 8th round with a vicious body shot.
Lately many of the televised fights have had all the excitement of watching paint dry, but I am glad to have finally caught this particular fight. There wasn't so much tentative dancing around the ring, not so much avoidance strategy as there was good solid punching by both fighters.
Can't wait to see what is broadcast next weekend.
