    Stevie Johnston SC Edner Cherry
    Johnnie Edwards SC Freddie Norwood
    Arthur Williams SC Clarence Moore
    Omar Pena SC John Butler
    Dino Weingarten SC James Pratt
    Gary Lynch SC Louechie Wiggins

    Not sure why Stevie Johnston is still fighting, and it's a shame. He was a great champ 10 years a go and at 35 he no longer has the great handspeed and defense that made him so good. He faces Edner Cherry a decent lightweight who is best known for losing to Malignaggi on HBO last year. And also on the card is the insufferable Freddie Norwood, not sure why he gets a tv spot, but he is a washed up ugly fighter. Finally we got former cruiser champ Arthur Williams, another guy who is well past his prime. So I guess we got seniors night on ESPN2, so enjoy with care tonight at 9.

    He took a couple years off just to be miserable. Started up again in 06' I believe.

    I might not watch this card. Johnston was a neat fighter at his prime. He's a shell now. Is he fighting at 135 or is he still at 140?

    I'm probably going to watch the card, though I didn't realize Johnston was that far past his prime. As for Norwood, his name is probably what got him a spot on TV and not much more than that.

    Anyone watching? I think it's on an hour delay because of the soccer game that happened before it.

    I'm about to head back to my bedroom and watch it.

    EDIT: Holy smokes! Right when I walked in the room, I saw Norwood face down being counted out. I saw the replay and it was a good double hook combo that did him in. Nice win for Edwards, even if Norwood is past his prime.

    Norwood just face planted the canvas after a very ugly fight.

    I hope that's not Panama. He's a jackass and that's being nice.

    Don't think so. Isn't Lewis banned from working a corner in the U.S.?

    It's not him. Sorry. The guy had the cap though. And he kind of looked like Lewis. Atlas would have probably killed Lewis before he could have got to the ring.

    Johnston looked like crap. Lost every round and got dropped a billion times. He got stopped in the 10th. Depressing.

    The KO is reminiscent of the Glen Johnson-Roy Jones fight. Johnston gets dropped by a right and hits his head on the canvas hard.

    He and Norwood both should call it a career.

    only diff is johnston won't be coming back on any level, at that weight class he wont be a threat on any level; he needs to call it a wrap, he had his time..he did well.
