Public Enemy

I don’t like Fontanez, he’s young and may need alot more work but he just gets tired too quickly and he wastes too much energy trying to bounce like Ali.. Honestly thought it could go either way the Mex kid although Game didn’t really land anything good.. fight basically sucked.. the Melendez Brinson fight was much better but I’m not sure why Melendez Camp decided to ok the 158lb weight limit.. probably took Brinson too lightly and figured even at 158lbs which went to 180+lbs wouldn’t be a problem for them.. ???

EZ E – You do realize the fight was at a much higher weight because Brinson couldn’t make 154lbs.. they went with 158lbs and supposedly Brinson ballooned up to over 180+lbs come fight night.. also, Melendez had basically Knocked Brinson the fikout against the ropes and the Ref saved him with the longest ten count in History.. with 28 seconds to go the Ref basically used up the entire 28 seconds saving Brinson in that round.. also, any other Judge would’ve stopped it because Brinson was helpless against the ropes and wasn’t defending himself but the local Ref decides to jump in and give him that 28 second count.. Brinson also deserved an Academy award for crying about a rabbit punch.. Brinson was throwing Rabbit punches the entire fight… he was sloppy and he was very dirty and he was a cruiserweight… Not impressed with Brinson…

Golden boy promotions sucks

Shame on east side boxing site for not following up with the fight results. Brinson deserves
some exposure here guys. IMO this was one of the better fights of 2013

Just saw the repeat program. Sadly, I was correct. Fontanez lucked out and Melendez is exactly what many of us fight people here on the Island have been saying all along, an overrated & limited unsportsman-like bully. Fontanez will not get past the punchers of next level of opposition. Once he does he will suffer a couple of crunching kayos and disappear.

The Prince

Great show of heart and determination by Brinson. Melendez tried to dirty his way to a victory. And that Ref should get fined for lying to a fighter. Telling Brinson that if the doctors stop the fight, he would lose. When the rules say the fight goes to the score cards. And that Fontenez kids needs to get better quick or he won’t last long.

Honestly, BOTH Puerto Rican fighters might be in for surprises. This Fontanez kid really doesn’t impress me much. Once he steps it up in comoetition he’ll fall short. As for “Destroyer” Melendez, he’s wild and easy to hit. No hate here, I’m a Boricua and keeping it real.

Another entertaining Friday fight on Showtime, Melendez has some serious power.
