    Default Leo Santa Cruz v Rafael Rivera - Figueroa Jr v Molina Jr

    Card kicks off on Fox in a few hours. Stay busy fight for Santa Cruz in a division with some good matches to be made in the future..let us hope. Not sure what Figueroa jr is doing with his career and potential but he's doing it slooowly. Style wise this has the makings of a real shoot. Molina always makes for an honest scrap but he's going to need to get off to a faster start here. Carlos Lincona defends his minimumweight strap v DeeJay Kriel also . Not sure if he's really a DJ but when else is there a chance to us that one .

    Interested in Figueroa/ Molina (I was a big Figueroa fan awhile back), this should be a war while it lasts. Funny that Figueroa requested the fight at 140, then had to request a higher weight not far out from fight day. Surprise, surprise.

    Licona is decent (although I thought he lost a close 1 to Barriga), but I think this is Kriel's coming out party.

    I lost some respect for Santa Cruz after he failed to give Frampton a fight in the UK, and since then he's been coasting. Him and Russell need to unify already.

    Didn't realize that, so basically he couldn't make the weight. Kid likes to eat and he just hit 30. Not good. I can't fault Leo for playing hard ball in rematch. He showed another side with solid disciplined boxing but both Santa Cruz and Russell jr are in idle. Loved how he came out of the gate with first title win and huge activity level. A fighting champ. All four at 126 are top notch talents but they have to sort it out!

    Donnie Marshall v 6'7 Sebastian Fundora jr middles to start off. I like Joe Goosen on the mic again.

    Fundora has the Paul Williams bug. Great tall freaky frame but fights to get it inside and swings away. Marshall absorbing a lot in 2nd hoping on brick. Able to land rights but Fundora takes it well.

    Big uppercut drops Marshall beginning of 3rd and still staggered. Fundora is a gangly buzzsaw and gets leverage on his uppercuts. Ref waves it off for tko.

    126 is a division I should love because I love how they fight but I can’t get over how many of them(like Frampton) openly admitted the would and were ducking Rigo.

    Likable young man but not ready to be rushed into title shot by years end. Guess you have easy options with a frame like that but like to see him eat some sammichs. Molina and Figueroa at the bell already. Yep Omar has that mid section paunch . Oh great Jack Reiss, at least they got rid of that silly head cam he was wearing for a while.

    Smart boxing round for Molina to open. Omar looks a bit odd ducking away like that again. Molina takes a low blow and Omar gets in a left. Good combo from Omar at rounds end and Molina ties up. Lennox calls Omar a bit messy .

    I just don't like that look away thing Figueroa does. Bit surprised Molina looks so much naturally bigger. Better pressure from Omar in 2nd and working the body. Goood left upper hook to the belly of Molina as the round ends. 1-1 at the moment

    Turning into battle of body shots in 3rd, Molina boxing early and digs in a couple lefts downstairs. On the outside Omar really looks out of sorts momentarily but gets in his own right hand. Molina ends round with Omar trapped in corner and unloading. Good mix by Molina that round.

    Again Molina starts round boxing off jab and keeps Omar shut down a bit. Ohh long right hand by Omar catches Molina clean, couple of big left hooks catch Omar coming in. Didn't think Molina would keep this pace and Omar digs the gut with Molina in the very same corner at rounds end. Very solid scrap lots of ebb and flow. Have Molina in front 2-1-1

    Both easing off in 5th. Molina steady boxing and clocks Omar with wiiiide right hand. Some of this stuff he does is bad body language but surely he's still watching Molina. Slower round but like to see Omar get something consistent going. 3-1-1 Molina and I didn't think that would be the case if I'm honest.

    Ohh nice right by Omar gets Molina in Corner early 6th! Annnd Molina comes back, spins him and uncorks hooks of his own. Why no jab..at all..from Omar? That left to the body is best for Omar but scattered here. Some tough rounds! Molina ends round with big right hand to Omar who is basically sideways looking away. WTH is that. Have to go Molina again 4-1-1. Just more consistent and cleaner hits that move Omar.
