Mayhem Mayweather vs. Maidana PPV Undercard Results
Leo Santa Cruz vs. Manny Roman
Even if this is a one-sided fight, hopefully it’s a fun one. I think everyone needs it after the last fight. Certainly starts out at a quicker pace than the last one, although nothing too blistering just yet. Santa Cruz looking to establish control early on, while Roman looking to get settled.
And well, that didn’t take long. Santa Cruz lands a big ol’ right hand in Round 2, crumpling Roman who seemed to somewhat turn himself into the shot. He beat the count but the referee wisely called it off.
Miguel Vazquez vs. Mickey Bey
Miguel Vazquez the odd man out at 135 lbs. Despite the fact that he’s been the presumptive top guy at lightweight for some time, the Terence Crawford vs. Raymundo Beltran fight is for the vacant lightweight championship, due to their combined rankings.
The lanky, lean Vazquez is working behind his jab and his reach and keeping things on the outside to start the fight. Bey doing a lot of feinting and trying to figure out a way in. Right now, he’s just not being active enough. Vazquez certainly in control through the first two rounds.
Bey getting into the fight more in the 3rd. Landing some jabs of his own, looking for openings for some counters. Bad clash of heads in the round in the midst of a clinch. Vazquez also bleeding from his nose a bit here.
Fight becoming a little sloppier, more clinches and ugly exchanges. Bey effective now behind his jab and double jab. Vazquez still circling around a lot. Bey lands a nice left in an exchange. Tough rounds to score here but Bey coming on after a slow start.
Crowd getting restless in Round 5 with a lack of action. Vazquez back in control in this stanza as Bey’s work rate trails off again. Fight continuing to progress at a slower pace, and a similar pattern. Vazquez seems to have made a few adjustments to slightly stay ahead here. Lots of awkward action here, and not enough action at all for the fans.
Vazquez just doing more effective work, even if a lot of what he’s doing is subtle. Ultimately, for the past five rounds or so, and really the majority of the fight, the two have been fighting Vazquez’s style of fight, with Bey being uncomfortable and unable to apply consistently effective aggression.
Much to the delight of fans, this slow and drawn out affair is coming to a close. Certainly should be Vazquez on the cards, but some of this fight was difficult to score and that leaves it open to get interesting.
Official scores: 115-113 Bey, 115-113 Vazquez, 119-109 Bey
Whoa. That is absolutely mind-boggling. Mickey Bey by 10 points! 10 points! Awful. I find it impossible that you could produce that scorecard.
Alfredo Angulo vs. James De La Rosa
Alfredo Angulo, who came into the ring weighing as much as a small cruiserweight, began the fight seeming slow and sluggish. De La Rosa took early control and was getting off first with sharper shots. In the second round, De La Rosa scored a knockdown with Angulo along the ropes, adding to his strong start, landing two big flush left hands.
De La Rosa continued doing good work in Rounds 3-4. However, by the end of round 4, Angulo was able to land a couple of big shots. However, De La Rosa was giving it back in those exchanges too, and Angulo was actually the one who eventually backed off.
In round 6, De La Rosa really started teeing off, throwing a dozen shots in a row without any fire back from Angulo. Angulo dug in and began working and coming in, but the action is definitely still being controlled via De La Rosa. Angulo, now cut, just doesn’t seem to have it right now.
Angulo loses a point at the tail end of Round 7 for low blows. Already behind on the scorecards, that just really places the onus on El Perro to score a knockout if he hopes to win this fight. In the corner after round 8, Virgil Hill warns Angulo that his career could be on the line if he doesn’t mount the comeback here.
And Angulo responds in round 9, hurting De La Rosa with a left hook and then looking to pour on the pressure. De La Rosa stays on his feet, but he’ll have to survive in Round 10 because he was definitely hurt there.
Angulo picks up where he left off, throwing the kitchen sink at De La Rosa and effectively landing some major blows. But De La Rosa is able to stay on his feet, and should have enough points to get the decision. Big effort from Angulo in the final rounds to resurrect his career, even if he goes onto to lose.
Official Scores: 98-90, 96-92 and 99-89 for De La Rosa
