    i have to say i was very impressed by some of the undercard fighters

    especially victor ortiz he looked great . he defense even if he did get hit by a flash knock out was very impressive , he showed great power and composure

    Daniel Jacobs also looked like he could be a real talent his amateur record is insane , and that body shot hook combo was sick granted his opponent wasn't exactly world class

    Thats great to hear.

    Daniel Jacobs I think has a very bright future.

    Any other notable names on the undercard?

    victor ortiz he could be a champion by the end of 2009imo cause te light welter weight division is pretty thin and he's got great talent knocked out carlos Maussa in the first round , who took hatton the 9 round and made him look bad .

    Danny Garcia is also a prospect they spoke about but i wasn't really too impressed by him the guy he fought was like a featherweight fighting against a welter weight

    Not sure about Ortiz. He's been protected so far.

    HE'S just 21

    how can you call him protected he's still a kid

    maussa's a pretty good fighter for a 20 years old to knock out in the first round . he was the wba champion a few years ago

    He's being lined up for a title fight. I don't care if you're fifteen. You're judging against the men you're mentioned alongside, and Ortiz is not up to scratch so far.

    And Maussa was paid to go in and lay down. He did just that.

    Just because you say that I call everyone protected, doesn't mean I do, or that you can back up that statement.

    Ortiz isn't being brought along "fast". Maussa's shot even for not being a very good Fighter to begin with, he's lost his last 3 fights, and two of them pretty badly. Victor's also fought a lot of fights in the Southwest territory, which is known for soft competition. Emmanuel Clottey is the only other stand-out name, and he's not much to brag about beating these days. Victor's competition has been moderate, but it should be very obvious to anyone he's not ready for Title Contention.

    You have got to love Garcia and Jacobs, they are fighting every month and blowing people out. Can't wait for them to step up and get an espn2 or a showbox showcase next year.

    HE'S 21 fighting someone who was a champion less than 2 years ago at 20 is hardly slow .

    no one ever said he was ready for title just yet , i for was impressed by his skills and think he has the potential to be a champion by the end of 2009 the light welter division is every thin
