Chavez looked good tonight. He's looked good his past couple of fights.

Looks like the date vs Sergio Martinez is already set, September 15th in Vegas.

Sure seems like it. There is also some controversy about Chavez Jr. on not taking his drug test after his fight. Hopefully we can get some type of reform. Even with that said there are some good matchups left this year barring anyone else caught with illegal substance. Tomorrow we have Ortiz-Lopez and Soto-Matthyse which figure to be pretty entertaining fights.

Wow I really didn't think Lopez would pull the upset. Stopped watching right after the fight was stopped. Yup so much for that Canelo fight. Once again Ortiz shows how mentally weak he is.

Yeah that's because he doesn't have a brain, if you get your jaw broken and still get hit you can permanently damage the whole area which would of course be hell for the rest of your life. Ortiz is smart but he unfortunately is going to be drinking through a straw for a month.

Sure, but not many people, even boxers, are tough enough to fight on with a broken jaw. I think it's pretty understandable for the guy to quit under the circumstances. He did after all come back from 2 knockdowns from a roided up Berto to win that fight.

More Twitter stupidity; some people seem to think that Ortiz quitting from a broken jaw is another atrocity to the sport of Boxing. :

And it's over in the 6th round for Thompson. Dominant win by Klitschko. As much as I like them, I wouldn't mind if the Klitschkos retired, if only to make all this a bit more interesting.

KO. Thompson was knocked down and could barely get up at 10 and could stand only by holding the ropes, thus the ref ruled him unable to continue, i.e. a knockout. He was close to getting knocked out in the 5th and barely survived the round.

Dead sport here because it's dominated by Non-US fighters.

The Klitschko's both draw huge crowds in Europe.

Wlad just dominated then stopped him.

Decent fight for Nonito, but he needs to stop loading up his shots so often and early aimed at the Head. He didn't go to the body at all.

Mathebula took about 4-5 rounds though to me.

Donaire fights to his level. If its a mediocre opponent. Ehhh.

If its something that matters, he tries.

Weird guy.

I think the HBO team was trying to pitch the fight as closer than it actually was. I had Mathebula only winning 2 or maybe 3 rounds.

I will be watching but Haye v Chisora has all hype and no delivery written all over it.

All been set up to trumpet up the "beef" for 2 boxers just looking for a pay day.

He has a bit of skill as well. Chisora is just big. The heavyweight division is a joke though. Probably the reason why it breeds idiots like these two.

I feel that's not really accurate. Chisora has proven that he can box quite skillfully and there's plenty of others (e.g. Povetkin, though he sucked horribly against Huck) that can do as well, it's not as if the heavyweight division was much better in the past, nor would I say that the talent pool used to be better back then.

That aside there's definitely a few problems with the current structure of the divison - many of those that are talented try to avoid the Klitschkos (until they're too old) and fight few real competition (see e.g. Helenius, Fury, Boytsov). I think once the Klitschkos are gone (or are beatable for more fighters), we'll get a lot more action as most talents will try to get their hands on the belts (and thus the money).
