    holyfield vs donald

    donald beat his ass for 12 rounds, winning possibly all but one out of the 12, holyfield landed only one meaningful punch after the 2nd round, and was way too shot to even follow up, he is a done fighter and should without question retire. what was disturbing was during his post fight comments he mentioned that hes not yet giving up on his dream of regaining the heavyweight title. hell be slurring his words and drooling from his mouth like a total tard within 3 years.

    rahman vs meehan

    rahman had the most impressive showing of the night, coming in lighter than his last few bouts and taking the fight to meehan, basically rahman owned him and flushed him down the toilet within the first 4 rounds. hell be getting a shot at one of the titles in his next bout.

    byrd vs mccline

    surprisingly mccline came out aggressive and put byrd on his ass at the end of the 2nd round, he possibly couldve finished him but the bell saved byrd. mcclines pace slowed and byrds pitty pat punches prevailed, giving him a split decision victory over mccline, whos probably seen his last title shot. in my opinion mccline couldve finished byrd had he not been so tentative, mcclines only problem is he fights like a 220 pounder with a glass chin, even though hes 270 pounds and an animal.

    golota vs ruiz

    somewhat of a circus match, which was expected, given golotas fragile psyche and ruizs frustrating "hug you for 12 rounds" style. golota planted the champ on his ass about halfway through the 2nd, then followed up with another, much sloppier knockdown, looked like he could finish ruiz, but ruiz made it out of the round. it was a 10-7 round for golota, and in the following round ruizs dirty tactics earned him a point deduction, making that round a 10-8 round for golota, putting him comfortably ahead on the cards (or one would think). the match became increasingly sloppier the longer it went, with ruiz getting tired his clinching becoming more ridiculous, the rounds were close, ruiz winning some late, but given the deficit it appeared hed need a KD or KO to win. the 12th round ends, its up to the judges, somehow ruiz wins a unanimous decision, unbelievable, golota is robbed, ruiz keeps his belt and escapes another close one. what bull****.

    I'm not a Ruiz fan but Golota doesn't exactly have a rep for being a clean fighter.
