    Default Omar Figueroa looked terrible.

    Figueroa looked bad against Burns, and lost that fight, in my opinion.
    How would you describe his fighting style, 'Dumb Ass Texan' or 'Boneheaded Mexican'? The guy is starting to take too many punches, pure and simple.
    What do you think?

    First off, do you know where I can see the full fight. I only caught the first few rounds as I had to work. Second, I'm a big Omar fan. I think he is a bit to dedicated at giving the fans an action fight to his own detriment. Have you seen interviews with him, seems like a truly nice kid. He was apparently being scouted by the pros as he was an excellent picture. Very bright guy but seems he thinks the best defense is overwhelming offense. I have yet to see him in a boring fight. He also looks better each time out but I fear if he didn't developer an effective defense he may not be long in the ring. I have been dodging most of these threads as I still need to see the fight. If anyone has a link I will be much appreciated. Bottom line, I'm big on Figs, hope he developed a good defense and has a long successful career. I've actually been following him since did first pro fight and it may seem strange but his defense has actually improved quite a bit. He's young, hopefully he can refine a bit because he is a class act and an exciting fighter. I think he's been having a lot of hand trouble lately, in all honesty, he's one of my favorite up and comers at this time. Once again, anyone got a link or a suggestion, I checked youtube once and it either wasn't up yet or was taken down.

    He didn't look great but he definitely beat Burns!

    I had it 6-6 but burns made him look bad throughout the fight. He is talented but has a ton to work on to get to the top level.

    The main thing I remember about that fight was how poor the ref was.
    I had omar winning but he didn't impress

    The only quality came from Burns, anytime they had any space between them.

    12-0 Burns.

    Omar won for sure, but he didn't win a boxing match.

    and if you dont understand, well.. just watch a few years more boxing.

    Laurence Cole is a problem the Texas Boxing Commission should deal with. He can be biased beyond belief.
    When you have the broadcast crew complaining about the referee, you know there's a problem.

    Figueroa took an entire career's worth of punches just against Arawaka. Every time I've seen him fight he's been face first. This is not a sudden thing with him.

    The Texas Boxing Commission should all go away. There is not one problem on earth they can't make worse.

    Ricky Burns landed the cleaner punches. Many of Omar's punches missed. I had Ricky winning by 2 points

    Omar's style is more frustrating to watch than it is exciting. His look away defense and his eyes closed offense leaves much to be desired... I'll pass on ole Figgy. Nice Guy though

    Maybe Burns is back?

    i think burns was under a lot of pressure during the few fights between the one before beltram and that aweful loss he had after crawford

    the whole of scotland depending on him and hed just had a baby and all of that

    i think he might find some form again and i think figueroa found out how good he was

    if he can get back down to lightweight i think burns can be champ again
