victor cayo proved to be a difficult fighter. marcos maidana kept his cool and figured the kid out a stopped him with a beautiful right hand to the solar plexis.
cayo showed courage and some skills but badly needs more seasoning and a better corner. when he was stunned after being dropped by a punch a split second after the bell in round two rather than his corner men trying to revive him they spent most of the respite screaming at the ref. chaos in the corner of of young fighter that is already in over his head does him no good at all.
maidana is a tough heavy handed guy. i still hope he gets amir khan in the ring soon but a brady or alexander may be able to out slick him. either way the jr. welters are the show right now.
in the semi main joan guzman completely blew off the scales coming in an unforgivable 9 lbs. over the scheduled lightweight limit. the extra weight excluded his being able to claim the title but helped him to win the fight scoring a knockdown and earning a split decision to reverse the out come of his last fight with ali funeka. while the first fight was ruled a draw even guzman admitted he lost. not having to struggle to make weight or even try gave him a decided edge over the snake bit funeka who can't seem to catch a break on these shores.
