PBC’s PPV on Fox
The Final Nail In The Coffin
 
By William Trillo
As defined by Cambridge Dictionary
Final Nail in the Coffin: An event that causes the failure of something that had already started to fail.


If there was anyone questioning whether or not PPV boxing shows have gone the way of the Dodo Bird, Saturday nights PBC promoted catastrophe on FOX is a loud and clear answer. From top to bottom and from the inside out the broadcast was an atrocity.

The very first phone call I received on Sunday went as follows:

  Mikey Garcia Gets DiSpenced By Errol  
By William Trillo
Errol Spence Jr. (25-0, 21 KO’s) had little or no trouble at all with Mikey Garcia (39-1, 30 KO’s) as he retained his IBF Welterweight title with a complete shutout performance. The fight was not close, the fight was not intriguing, the fight was not suspenseful.

When this fight was first announced almost everyone to a man said that Mikey had bitten off way more than he could chew with this challenge.

He Likes It! Hey Mikey!
 

By William Trillo
Back in the day, circa 1972, a cereal commercial aired on television that caught the attention of most of America. In the commercial two older bigger kids had no desire to test out the new cereal offering but instead pawned it off on their much smaller companion, “Mikey”. Thinking Mikey would want no part of it the bigger boys were dismayed when Mikey takes that bowl and devours the contents, all of it. It is then that the shocked brothers excitedly exclaim, “He likes it! Hey Mikey!”

Almost 50 years later that same scenario is playing out in the world of professional prize fighting. In this one the offering few desire to test is one Errol Spence Jr. (24-0, 21 KO’s). Currently Spence holds the IBF Welterweight title and in the eyes of many he is the best 147 pounder on the planet.

Bivol Brings It
 
By William Trillo
With his victory on Saturday night Dmitry Bivol (16-0, 11 KO’s) retained his WBA Light Heavyweight Title and now should finally get some well deserved respect and recognition. The young Russian with a thoroughbred pedigree proved his worth against the strong challenger Joe Smith Jr.(24-3, 20 KO’s). Bivol was dominant and almost dropped Smith in the final round. But let’s not forget that earlier in the fight Bivol was put to the test as a Smith Jr. bomb stunned and wobbled the young Champion. Proving he has what it takes, Bivol weathered the storm and went on to impress with his unanimous decision victory.

Leo Santa Cruz (36-1-1, 19 KOs) headlined the PBC show at the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live to defend his WBA World featherweight title, and did what was expected of him. It took all 12 rounds, but he defeated Rafael Rivera (26-3-2, 17 KOs) in a unanimous decision. The scores were the same on all of the cards; 119-109. But don’t let those numbers fool you. Rivera came to fight and there was no backup in him whatsoever. The two went toe-to-toe for the majority of the fight, and many in attendance gave Rafael a round or two more than that.

  Cusumano Says "Hard-Headed" Barrett
Is In For Long Night Feb. 23
 
As a young up-and-comer, the heavy-handed Sicilian who breezed through his amateur career undefeated, Juiseppe Cusumano promised his coach and mentor, Robert Matney, he'd one day win a world title.

When Matney, a former Chief Petty Officer in the U.S. Navy, died unexpectedly in 2014, Cusumano's career took a turn for the worse. The promising heavyweight struggled with alcohol abuse and sat on the shelf for more than two years, the victim of a shady manager who robbed him of most of his earnings without booking him any fights.
