    Default Shakur Stevenson vs Toka Khan Clary on ESPN

    Just thought we should have a thread on this fight card. Starts about an hour after the Colbert-Arboleda card on Showtime. Guess I'll be flipping back and forth as other times.

    Damn. Had to wait for college football to be over while watching the Colbert-Arboleda fight over on Showtime.

    Tuned into ESPN and the football had finished and Edgar Berlanga had already knocked his opponent in the 1st round.

    So the 1st round knockout streak continues... and now sits at 16-0 with 16 first round knockouts.

    Oh well... gonna have to get me one of those split-screen TV's.

    1st round knockdown by Verdejo in the 1st round. Verdejo looks sharp... but Nakatani is sturdy. Fingers crossed.

    Don't want to get too excited yet..... but Verdejo looks great. Quick... poised... powerful... and good footwork. Let's hope he's really back.

    Just seeing 6th Verdejo with two kds on Nakatani? Oof. Felix looks on point.

    Damn no wonder this guy went the distance with Teofimo Lopez. He's got a beard and a half on him. Verdejo still in control, though.

    Shit... Verdejo got caught. Thought that might happen. This Nakatani's as tough as a pile of rocks. Let's see how Verdejo responds.

    CRAP. And just like that..... the fight's over. Oh well..... I wasn't sold coming in, and my suspicions turned out to be right. Verdejo's done. Too bad. His comeback was looking good for a bit there.

    I was encouraged by the fact that Nakatani had never been down and Verdejo put him down twice in the fight. But it looks like Verdejo's punch resistance and recuperative powers aren't what they used to be (or maybe never were)... and/or he just can't figure out tall, lanky guys. Whatever the case might be... it's probably over for his comeback. Two KO losses doesn't bode well for him going forward. Too bad because he's got a shitload of talent.

    Great win for Nakatani but bad loss for Verdejo. I think that Verdejo can still fight and be a decent gatekeeper but that’s about it. Nakatani I think can have a decent career.

    Stevenson is really good, but I hope his next fight is a real step up
