Uno Mas "No Mas"
The Panama Connection
 
By William Trillo

I don't know what it is about fighters who come out of the Panamanian gyms and the phrase "No Mas", but after Nicolas Walters, (who is from Jamaica but now calls Panama his home), had his corner utter that phrase before the eighth round to end his fight with Vasyl Lomachenko one could only reflect back on Roberto Duran who spoke the same words in the eighth round of his legendary rematch with Sugar Ray Leonard.

  Lomachenko Gives Boxing Lesson For 7 Rounds Before Walters Quits And Says "No Mas"  
Photo: Mikey Williams - Top Rank

Vasyl Lomachenko (now 7-1-0, 5 KO's) retained the WBO World super featherweight title with an easier than expected victory over previously unbeaten Nicholas Walters. Lomachenko made a one-sided fight out of top opposition, making Walters quit after simply outboxing him for 7 rounds. Walters could not find any rhythm going to land anything, nor defend anything oncoming. In round 7, Lomachenko landed several combination shots, sending Walters off-balance more than once. Though he never appeared hurt or in trouble in the fight, Walters decided there was no way to beat Lomachenko and decided to end the fight on his own, to which he will receive great criticism. Walters drops to 26-1-1 with 21 KO's.

With Impressive Victory In Australia
 
Continuing his comeback on Friday in Australia, super middleweight contender Blake Caparello finished off the year facing Bolivian Ricky Torrez at the Melbourne Pavilion, in Flemington, Victoria.

The Australian southpaw Caparello came out aggressively at the outset, throwing in combination. A barrage of punches felled Torrez hard, though he arose.

Caparello improved to 24-2-1 (8 KOs), while Torrez fell to 26-8-1 (17 KOs) ending a six-fight winning streak.

Maurice Is Not Off The Hook
 
By William Trillo

With all the hubbub surrounding the controversial score in the Ward/Kovalev main event you can bet that Maurice Hooker was hoping no one would remember the injustice rendered when he was given a gift draw against Darleys Perez. As bad as the decision in the main event may have seen, this was worse.

Perez won this fight hands down and how one judge saw Hooker winning the fight and another saw the battle a draw is simply anyone's guess. The 97-93 call for Perez was correct and he should have won this fight across the board.

Kovalev vs. Ward:
Robbery, Assault & Battery
 
By William Trillo

The very first words that Andre Ward spoke to the media in attendance at the post fight media were, “I see some sad faces out there, I don’t know why.” He then pointed to a handful of fans who somehow hadn’t left the building yet and said, “But I see some fans up there clapping.”

The reason Andre saw a room full of less than happy faces is because almost everyone to a man was let down by boxing again. Those sad faces were a reflection of the scores that only 30 minutes earlier handed Ward a victory and light heavyweight titles most believe he did not deserve.

"I have been a champ before I knew it was going to be a tough fight - it was the 1st time in my career I was dropped.

"It’s the wrong decision. I don’t want to say my opinion. The witnesses are here - they saw it.

  Ward Wins Controversial Decision By Single Point
To Take Titles Over Heart-Krushed Kovalev
 
Andre Ward (now 31-0, 15 KO's) won the WBA/IBF/WBO Light Heavyweight Titles with a highly contested unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Sergey Kovalev. Ward was down in round 2, and controlled by Kovalev for most of the fight, but did rise to the occasion to fight on. However that was not enough to win a fight where he only appeared to win a handful of rounds. Even had Ward won the full second half of the fight he would have lost because of the knockdown. Judges saw it 114-113 across the board and Kovalev (now 30-1-1, 26 KO's) could not believe the outcome. Upon the scores being read Ward sported a really wide-eye surprised look on his face that Max Kellerman even asked him about, but Ward said he was mistaken. Both expressed interest in a rematch.

Fortune Telling Elvis Pound4Pound Pick

I don't know how long it's been since I felt the need to inquire with "The King" about a result for an upcoming fight, but it was on my way to Las Vegas that I pulled over once again to find out who Elvis thought would come out on top, Kovalev or Ward? The fight is a toss up and even though oddsmakers have put Ward as a 2 to 1 favorite it's really difficult to say who will come out on top.

What Elvis had to say was plain and simple, "Remember this, hard work always pays off in the long run!"
