O.K…. I really don’t have 154 reasons, but I do have a Jr. Middleweight division that tops out at 154 pounds to present to you that should lay all the boxing is dead theories to rest. Over the past 2 weekends we have seen the top fighters in the Junior middle division present a very convincing argument. From this weekends brawl between Cotto and Mayorga to last weekends premature coming out party for Saul Alvarez, the attention of boxing fans was placed squarely at 154 pounds. Throw in Sergio Martinez’s stunning performance at a bigger than usual 160 pounds and what we have here is the makings of some pretty good scraps down the road.
With Antonio Margarito sitting ringside and lurking in the wings for Cotto and the watchful eye of other fighters like, Pacquiao, Martirosyan, Angulo, Kirkland, Bundrage and more, it is high time to give boxing it’s just do as we anticipate some seriously good match ups.
The biggest problem could be the promoters who have a tendency to lock out their peers fighters. It’s time to end the Cold War and let these guys settle things in the ring instead of in someone’s office. It’s only then that we will get the fights the publics demands.
