    I had to see that fight as I didn't even know it took place. The cut was a bad cut and the doctor made sense, he could have gotten an asthmatic attack by breathing in blood- it would have caused it him damage if he continued. Yes, he was wobbling Casamayor, but what if he couldn't stop Casamayor? What arrogance on Corrales assuming he could stop the man.lololol..... the doctor saved him. Remember, this is the same Corrales who lost all of his senses vs Mayweather and got knocked down 5 times.

    I don't care what you say about size and knockdowns, but no man is supposed to be knocked in the head until he loses his balance or semi-consciousness. lolol...

    Good call on the doctor. If went on, aside from losing steam and breathing stamina, he may have needed significant facial reconstruction for a fight that was not even a major world title fight with millions of dollars on the line.
    Bigger man George, bigger punch!

    Good question. This fight was at 130 but regardless they fit in at 135 too. Browsing through both current divisions there's only one standout i'd confidently back to beat Corrales and Casa - Loma. And that 2003-2005 era also includes Floyd, Castillo, Frietas, etc.

    There are four current standout prospects who could equal/surpass those old boys - Teo, Tank, Haney and Garcia. But not yet.

    Who are the best lightweights in recent years? Bud and Mikey? Personally I think Mikey is overrated but Crawford holds his own in that era, no doubt, however, any of those old boys is far better than anyone on his current record.
    Ah right you are, guess I had figured Corrales didn't fight at 130 again after Floyd beat him up. I agree with you on Loma, and those young guys were who I was thinking of really. Of course they don't have the records or anything yet, but on the eye test and all, they may have a big edge physically, to me at least. Of course we know Corrales and Casa had the intangibles, any of those four may prove not to.

    Need a re watch. Casa was a dirty fighter. Skilled..and dirty.
