Sometimes a fight fan invests in watching a fight card that, on paper, seems as though it should be high quality, and it falls short of expectations when all is said and punched. When that happens, nothing can be done. But other times, a card looks overpriced and underwhelming, and that’s exactly how it ends up.
For some, Manny Pacquiao’s dominant win over Brandon Rios was a living legend regaining at least a portion of his standing as one of the best few fighters in the world, and for others, it was basically a showcase served up after an undercard of mismatches. Bad Left Hook‘s James Foley and TQBR’s Patrick Connor will be happy to stammer through their takes on the event, in addition to a recap of Carl Froch vs. George Groves, and their preview of Adonis Stevenson vs. Tony Bellew and Sergey Kovalev vs. Ismayl Sillakh.
