    Ramirez-Hart is a sneaky good fight. Evenly matched and both have tons of questions based off recent performances. Someone is going to step up, just not sure who.

    And my favorite prospect in the sport is returning in Egidijus Kavaliauskas. I thinks this guy could be something special. The raw power and skills are something that just don't come along often. He is taking a step up tonight in Montes who is not a bad fighter himself. I am very interested to see how Kavaliauskas performs. Don't forget, the undercards do get streamed on ESPN 3 (I believe starting at 7:30) and no doubt I will be tuning in to see how Kavaliauskas performs.

      I saw Jesse Hart's father (Eugene "Cyclone" Hart) fight Marvin Hagler and Bennie Briscoe live....

        The undercard stream on ESPN3 has begun. Don't forget to tune in prior to the main card. Kavaliauskas is due up later, for my money he is boxing's best prospect. He is taking a big step up, don't miss this one before the main show.

          Well Kavaliauskas is a work in progress. Showed a lot of impressive things, including a telephone pole like jab that he was consistently landing on a taller fighter. It was throw with precision timing kind of like the jab Golovkin used against Lemiuex. And showed that raw power to bust up the face of Montes that led to the fight getting stopped. But there are some things to tighten up. Kavaliauskas likes to open up in combination throwing big power shots but those punches tend to get wider and wider the more he throws. He got countered in between a few times and got clipped pretty good with some right hands in those moments. Also, needs to work the body more. I did not see many body shots. That could have been because the face of Montes got busted up so early and Kavaliauskas wanted to focus his work upstairs. However, needs to mix in some body shots. Good win, good step up and we will be seeing much more of the Mean Machine.

              Ramirez wins unanimous decision (115-112, 115-112 & 114-113) over Hart to retain the WBO Super Middleweight title....I had it 115-112 Ramirez. It was a terrific action packed fight with Hart going down in the second and barely beat the count....then rallying back to close the gap and hurting Ramirez in the 11th round.

                    Same score, great professional fight. Hart showed a lot of courage. It is the kind of fight that though Hart lost he will learn much more from than his previous 22 fights combined. He will be back and much better from this fight. Ramirez looked good, beat a solid guy and much like Hart will also pick up a lot from this experience.

                    I think this is one of those fights where both fighters stocks rise after and both turn out better because of the experience (it is also why we should see more these type of evenly matched contests). We could even see a rematch one day, I can see both holding belts at some point and talk turn to a rematch. Not right away but maybe in a few years.

                      I agree, both Ramirez and Hart are the better for that fight. Hart showed incredible toughness and determination. He has room to grow. Might have to change trainers?

                        Yeah Hart should strongly consider a change of trainers. Still makes a ton of defensive mistakes. John David Jackson would be a great pairing. There is plenty of talent there, change of direction in camp is a wise idea at this point.

                          I could see him connecting with, Jackson.
