    Man, Lujan just wades in, hands down throwing wild wide shots and Mike Jones just can't capitalize,

    Jones does look more relaxed, less wooden and picking shots better, but this is just a terrible fight.

    Mares-Agbeko: Early Results from Anaheim, Calif.

    By Francisco Salazar and Rocco Morales at ringside/Fight News

    In a highlight-reel finish, Frankie Gomez annihilated James Hope in the third round of a scheduled six round bout. Gomez (12-0, 9 KOs) landed the more-telling blows in a somewhat sloppy fight, caused by Hope (6-9-1, 4 KOs) mostly holding. In the third, Gomez landed a right cross to the head of Hope, knocking him out before he hit the canvas. Referee Tony Crebs did not even bother to count and waved the fight over at 53 seconds.

    Junior welterweight Carlos Molina remained unbeaten with a convincing 10 round unanimous decision over Manuel Leyva. Molina, (15-0-1, 7 KO’s) from nearby Norwalk, dictated the bout by taking the fight to Leyva, throwing and landing hooks and crosses to the head. Leyva got going and had a good fourth round, but later in the fight, Molina hurt Leyva at the end of the seventh round. Leyva (18-4, 10 KO’s) was able to weather the storm, but was hurt again at the end of the 10th round. Molina won by scores 99-91, 99-91, and 100-90.

    Super middleweight contender Sakio Bika stopped tough Alfredo Contreras after the third round of a scheduled eight round. Bika, (29-5-2, 20 KOs) from Sydney, Australia, landed the more-telling blows against Contreras, who landed a few wild punches of his won. During an exchange in the third, Contreras was cut over his left eye by a Bika punch. At the end of the round, the ringside physician recommended to referee Tony Crebs to stop the fight. Contreras, from Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, drops to 11-13-2, 5 KOs.

    In a scheduled 8 round junior middleweight contest, Omar Henry (11-0-1, 9KO) had to settle for a technical draw after Lester Gonzales (12-5-3, 6KO) suffered a deep cut above his right eye. At 0:57 of the second round, the referee, after consulting with the ringside physician, called an end to the bout.

    Opening bout action, a scheduled 6 round featherweight contest, saw Richard Contreras 9-0, 8KO) prevail in an exciting slugfest over game Juan Sandoval (5-8-1, 3KO). Contreras was the winner by 4th round TKO after the referee saved Sandoval from further damage.

    Mike Jones won a workmanlike 12-round decision over Lujan, but neither guy can break an egg. Jones is quick with some skill, and he outworked Lujan, who seemed more intent on moving his head a lot with his hands down and firing punches that did nothing.

    Wolak and Rodriguez are going at each other hard with some heavy punches. Both staying in range and working, both landing some crisp shots. Both seem strong. Some nice uppercuts being landed by both. Should be a matter of attrition and who can take it better.

    Wolak is a more of the aggressor and seems stronger, but Rodriguez is no joke either. Ed moves back and is trying to box a bit, but he's firing some real hard shots too. They are working in range now and firing hard shots. Good crisp heavy blows. Fight is going to be a good one I think. Real pros in there engaging in real combat and trying to land meaningful punches that will have an effect.

    These guys are standing toe to toe and just working with hard blows nonstop. lots of great inside work to the body and head by both. Both are landing well. Wow. Very nice fight. They take turns hurting each other a bit. Just good quality work up close by both. nice pro fight by two tough guys. I have no idea who will wilt first, but just enjoying watching them.

    Round 5 is more of the same. Nice pace and legit punches thrown by both. Very intriguing. Well matched bout. Neither is a defensive specialist, that's for sure.

    6 - Just good inside work back and forth, the way I like it. W still more of the aggressor and E Rod a little bit more of the boxer, but basically this is an up close fight, both working the inside range for the most part. Perhaps wolak's pressure is enough that E rod isn't going to waste energy running away, so he's accepted that there will be a fair amount of inside work.

    7 - E Rod boxing a bit and Wolak's mouthpiece came out. Wolak may be stronger and more aggressive but E rod is a bit faster and timing him a bit with combos and just a bit of movement. E rod moving more and boxing more now. But wolak is not deterred. wolak is just nonstop pressure. yet, even on the inside E rod can punch and he's pretty quick.

    8 - E rod maintaining his range more and using quick shots. Wolak not deterred but he's getting outboxed. wolak has slowed up just enough that E rod has gotten comfortable and the style of fight is moving more towards his favor.

    9 - E rod boxing still and wolak plods forward, with without the same ferocity that characterized the earlier rounds, which is to e rod's liking. e rod is maintaining his range more so than at the start and that is better for him because he has the height and reach and speed advantage. wolak is still game though. still, I think he shot his bolt perhaps a bit too much early in the fight, and now the pace and style is to e rod's liking.

    10 - Back to the inside again but E rod is comfortable. he's faster and busier, though wolak is still plugging away too. but you can tell that e rod is comfortable. now e rod is really wacking away and wolak is hurt. e rod just doesn't stop throwing. wolak is trying to weather the storm but e rod is just throwing nonstop. he's landing lots of solid blows and wolaks head is giving out. wolak is really tough. e rod tires a bit and wolak fires away a bit now. e rod rips away again. crowd going wild. e rod lands beauty uppercut and follows up with a fusillade of blows. E rod won the round and likely the fight, though could be close. First 5 were a bit more towards wolak, but close and competitive, but last 5 were clearly e rod.

    Unanimous decision for E Rodriguez. I think it fair, though the cards actually had fairly wide margins, which somewhat surprised me. But they got the right winner.

    Let's hope there isn't a Gatti - Gamache type of weight difference in the Rios - Murray fight.

    Now Rios-Murray. As is typical for so many of today's fighters, Rios failed to make the championship weight. What nonsense. If you can't make weight, stop fighting at lightweight and move up to jr. welter.

    Rios weighed 136.5.

    Re: Cotto-Margarito Results & discussion- 12/3/11

    Murray must be crazy or have no idea who he's fighting because he's staying right in range and fighting Rios. Rios is much stronger but murray is game to the core. but I can already tell that rios' heavy hands are going to be too much, long terms. But murray is content to stay right there with a high guard and work with him. maybe he knows something I don't, but if I was in his corner I would advise him to change his style of fight. murray did land one nice low blow, I think, that momentarily phased rios, but he went right back to working. murry is quick and feisty, but rios is just so heavy handed.

    2 - both working well on the inside, but rios is stronger. Yet, murray is not backing down and is firing nice quick shots. He's decided to war it out, apparently. he's landing a fair amount too. maybe he's banking on rios being weight drained. not sure why, given that he never actually made weight. They are just working at a nice pace up close. another good fight. nice matchup. matchmaker deserves kudos for this one and the previous bout. another intriguing bout. no grabbing, but just in range or up close good work.

    Murrays giving a good as he's getting right now, Rios does look weaker than normal, if Murray can keep this up he has a good shot

    3 - more good quality inside work by both. murray is a bit quicker and more combos, but rios has those heavy hands and just works with those consistent single shots and keeps working all the time. I think muray just got stunned by some uppercuts. He's finally realizing why you don't war with rios. But he's game and coming back a bit now. tough kid. game to the core. but I think he is fighting rios's fight, and has been from the start. dangerous, but entertaining for sure. I don't recommend engaging in a war of attrition with brandon rios, but who am I to say? We'll see if it works.

    4 - murray is still whacking away with quick shots right up in rios' face. rios just calmly working with his heavy hands. not a whole lot of speed or snap but just continual thuds. but murray has enough defense and quick shots that he's making t fun. and rios is not a defensive master so he's getting hit. good competition. murray seems comfortable with this style and clearly prepared for this type of fight. I gave murray this round for sure. perhaps he thinks that rios can't hurt him and that he's in better shape and that rios underestimated him.

    5 - Nice inside fight again. rios is getting hit and his punches don't seem as strong as in the past. I do think there is something to the theory that he is weight drained. Murray is seeming more and more comfortable in there. murray is smothering rios fairly well too. I think he figured why run, I'll just move in with tight guard and smother him and try to outspeed him. he's starting to convince me, but pulling it off for 12 rounds won't be an easy proposition. rios did nail him with a good hook at the end, but another murray round.

    6 - more up close work, right in each others' faces. rios is getting going a bit more thus far in this round, as if he senses the need. nice uppercuts by rios. also heavy thudding body blows. he's turning up to another gear. murray is taking a bit of a break, but firing some good ones hear and there. but rios isn't phased at all. rios is piciking up the pace and those uppercuts have murray's face bleeding. rios's heavy punches are starting to gradually get to him. The guy is like slowly chopping him down. murray's face is starting to bruise up. Looks like my first instincts were correct.
