    Damn shame. Liked that fight. I wanted to see Garcia whack him good and pass the test big like when Lopez blasted Commey out in 2. I think these young guns are awesome, what a kick ass era its gonna be if these guys stay healthy long enough to make it through camp and fight week without getting infected.

    Campbell dodged a bullet

    Lets see KingRy vs George Kambosis (Teofimo's mandatory)

    or 21 year old Isaac Cruz

    This is unprofessional.

    If Garcia fights some bum he’ll be losing time. But I assume you don’t find any decent replacement on a 3 to 4 weeks notice.

    You got one job : be ready for a given date. You’d better make weight, not piss hot and protect yourself from some not-so-secret virus. There may be some bad luck involved, but then again, sometimes it also does when pissing hot happens.

    But the virus is pretty much out of his control as he will need to be training in a gym and with trainers coaches etc he doesn’t have the money to be able to put everyone up in a dedicated facility and cut them off from the outside world. This is going to happen more and more as more shows are put on

    I may be harsh. It just seems to me that many boxers deal with it accordingly. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the next few months.

    Did I miss something? What has Garcia showed that proves he's better than Campbell? The kid has height and speed but his technique is the most unremarkable out of all the prospects.

    I like what I see from Garcia. To me, he looks like he's gonna be a successful pro, he has some of the eye catching talent I've seen early in other top pros careers. Haney looks like the weakest to me, shown worse weaknesses and bad habits against limited competition already in his career. Nothing against Campbell, he's definitely someone we want in the mix to find out which guys are gonna remain in the conversation. Why it was a cool fight. That being said, I dont consider losing to Loma somehow a win even if he looked slightly better than other opponents, and I think Garcia's power generated from speed and timing will just be too high a possibility not to be felt, and I think Campbell gets stopped in a fight that was getting good.

    Lopez has proven worth, and I think Davis, Garcia, and until he takes an L I guess Haney and yes even Loma are all in the conversation. I dont think any of them stand head and shoulders above rest, but Lopez just proved the most, so gotta acknowledge hes the real thing.

    Anyway, its postponed so whatever
