Galarza was awesome and he was a huge underdog!!!Posted January 19, 2014 2:48 am
Any chance these fights could be televised a little earlier in the evening. It’s almost like “SHOTIME’S MIDNIGHT BOXING!”Posted January 18, 2014 5:05 pm
I think both redkach & luis came out winners. They aggressively gave each other the opportunity to show they have solid chins. I’d like to see both of them fight again.
The galarza kid had an excellent game plan. In the opening round one of the commentators said he should work in close already. I don’t understand why u need to be leaning on your opponents chest the whole time. In between the 1st & 2nd round they showed the boxers talk about their game plan. Galarza said he would feel him out & then proceed with what was presented to him. Worked out for him!Posted January 18, 2014 12:48 pm

I agree with WHAT?!
Luis was dominating the action in the early rounds and I had him winning all six of the first 6 rounds — although taking a point off for the first round knockout.
(9-9 score for the first round was fair given that the referee missed the Redkach knockdown).
Redkach did win several rounds on the back-end of the fight — but my final score was still 95-94 with Redkach winning 4 rounds while Luis win 6 but lost a point for the knockdown. In my min Luis won the fight — and a minimum it would be a very, very close win for Redkach.
The judges scores were stupid. The Shostat numbers were stupid. It was a close fight.Posted January 18, 2014 11:08 am
That was some KO by Galarza. Good to see a fighter stay on his game plan. And this is a guy with only 11 amateur fights before turning pro. He’s a natural.
WHAT!?!, I scored the fight much closer than what the judges did and I would have settled for a draw. Didn’t you think it was interesting how the commentators kept pointing out that RedKach was landing the harder blows, but Luis consistently outworked him in much of the fight? It was a very tough fight to score. But you’re right, Redkach got rocked a number of times by Luis.
Oh, one more thing: I thought it was both ignorant and disrespectful of the commentators to keep pronouncing Luis’s name as “Lewis.”
Still, great night of boxing.Posted January 18, 2014 11:06 am
I just got online, just tried to post my first post of the day, and ESB says, I’m “posting too quickly.” This website….Posted January 18, 2014 11:06 am
Well, rubbish scoring from the judges and rubbish refereeing all around in the main event. While Redkach did enough to win, he was not dominant and it was obvious he was going to win in the judges heads from the start. There is a flaw in punch stats which had Redkach out-throw Luis by a phenomenal amount of punches, yet while viewing the fight in real time, instincts saw Luis as the busier fighter by a long way. Redkach will be nothing more than a stepping stone at Lightweight and if he goes into the higher weights will get demolished. His so-called power was average and he got rocked more than once by Luis who is not a big hitter.Posted January 18, 2014 6:45 am
