Showtime had a triple header last night and I was visiting my Showtimeless mother in law down south so for the second week in a row Dan Tutalo picked up my slack and here is what he had to say:
"I blew it. Yesterday I was asked by a couple friends to go skating down in ac than hit the bar for a little bit. I found out we’d be back long before the fights so i went. Well, i guess i dont have the stamina a younger me had because when i got home at 9, i set up my laptop to tv, cracked a beer, overcooked some hot dogs on the grill and sat outside to watch through the screen door. Heres how the night of fights panned out for me.
Devon Alexander vs Jesus Soto Karass
The first four rds Devon Alexander fighting way more offensive than were used to and looked a lot faster than karass.
The following rds i cant tell you because that was knockdown #1 for me. Passed out outside head against my grill and it looked like that was it for me until luckily my wife found my drunk, tired, sore, motionless body and told me to go inside. I wasnt going out like that so i thought i had a second wind and sat at my bar instead for the fighter introductions for
Gary Russel vs Vasyl Lomachenko
Knockdown #2… Instantly… I did not see one rd.
My wife had already gone to bed so there was little chance of me getting up again. Until by some miracle, my laptop let out a horrible continuous loud beep that snapped me out of my coma, finally the second wind came and i grabbed my ipad and put on
Robert Guerrero vs Yoshihiro Kamegai
When i put the fight on it was 4rds in but the boxing gods were smiling upon me because this was the fight to see. No defense at all just an all out war. Guerreros eye was swollen shut by a huge uppercut from Kamegai but it didnt slow Guerrero at all. The fighters through over 1,000 punches and all of them were thrown hard. Its definately a candidate for fight of the year and Guerrero came out on top with the decision.
As for the other winners thanks to showtimes recap, alexander won and Lomachenko won a title in his 3rd pro fight”

Having not seen the fights I’ll add a few thoughts of my own anyway.
It’s good Gary Russel finally stepped up his competition, albeit to a guy in his third pro fight.
Devon Alexander, from what I’ve read and heard, continues to be one of he most boring fighters in the sport.
It’s good to see Guerrero back after the Mayweather spanking. It will be interesting to see what’s next for him. By the way what ever happened to his gun charge?
