    Yeah should be good. Lookin forward to it tommorrow(thursday) night. Hernandez has more left than Kelley no doubt, and while Kelley was KO'd by Bobby Pac man last time, Hernandez beat Bobby's butt and got robbed in the decision, so I gotta go Hernandez by TKO.

    Kelly really shouldn't be fighting anymore, commissions should watch out for him and guys like Courtney Burton.

    Seems pretty easy to call, although if there's any good news for Kelly its that Famoso's never been much of a puncher but even so he'll probably end up stopping Kelly mid to late on accumulation and the fact that Kelly's just shot.

    Well this is what www.fightnews.com had to say:

    Kelley defeats Hernandez!
    By Byron Spurlock at ringside
    In a lightweight crossroads battle between former world champions, 39-year-old Kevin Kelley (59-7-2, 39 KOs) turned back the clock Thursday night winning a hard fought unanimous decision over IBF #6, WBC #11 jr lightweight Carlos "Famoso" Hernandez (42-7-1, 24 KOs) at the Municipal Auditorium in San Antonio, Texas. After a close first three rounds, Kelley dropped Hernandez hard with a crushing southpaw right hook in round four. The 35-year-old Hernandez was able to survive Kelley's follow up attack and had a pretty good round five, but Kelley seemed fresher as the bout progressed. The fighters continued to battle at close quarters and the tiring Hernandez was cut over the right eye by an accidental head clash in round seven. Kelley's versatility allowed him to outbox Hernandez the rest of the way. "Famoso" almost completely eschewed the jab in the fight, just wading in only to be picked apart by "the Flushing Flash." This was Kelley's best performance in years. Scores were 95-94, 97-92, 96-93.

    Well, from this report it certainly seems that Kelley did actually get the best of it, which is a big surprise. Beforehand, I thought Hernandez held all the cards, but it seems Kelley came up with a flashy ace flush to stump him. If indeed it was Kelley's best performance in years, I hope it doesn't encourage him to step in with more fighters who are now much better than him as he did with Bobby Pacquiao. Fair play to him though, he must be chuffed with himself.

    This fight was like Mosley-Vargas IMO, 2 guys on their way wanting one last shot at glory.

    All you guys talking down on Kelly and talking trash,
    and he beat the hell outta Hernandez! hahaha


    Well, Hernandez has been in so many WARS that he can RETIRE a
    happy man. Always knew it would be soon that he wouldn't have enough.
    He had so much heart. A very special fighter. Salvadorians should be proud of him.

    Very surprised... really. Also I worry that this will just force Kelly into a big fight again that he can't win... At the same time though, he could be an excellent gate keeper.. He just can't overmatch himself.

    Kevin looked pretty sharp for 39 year old lightweight.

    Yeah, Kelley schooled him. I was very surprised. I feel sorry for poor Hernandez, he got robbed against Bobby Pacquaio, and was in a lot of good wars. Sad is career is over, but it is time to hang them up, he's got nothing to be ashamed of. As for Kevin, this was by far his biggest win in over 5 years! Apparently he is seeking one more big payday, and hopefully he will get it. Kelley vs Jesus Chavez could be a good fight for Kevin, and maybe even a winnable one.

    Whoever won that fight, that was always going to be the end result. One should hang up his gloves and the other should have one last shot at glory. Like Rocky 6 or summat. I expected it to go Hernandez's way, but Kelley showed he got some grit in him and came back to take it.
