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 uttered that phrase before the eighth round to end his fight with Vasyl Lomachenko one could only reflect back on Panamanian legend Roberto Duran who spoke the same words in the eighth round of his legendary rematch with Sugar Ray Leonard.

Enough has been said about this weekend’s fight. It was a major letdown for everyone.

It seems my comments about the “Cocktail Party” last week the night before Ward vs. Kovalev ruffled a few feathers. Not only did McGarry rip me but via my twitter feed David Payne @TheBoxingWriter let me have it as well.

Look, the event was to honor fighters from another epic Pound4Pound fight years ago. That being Julio Chavez Sr. vs. Pernell Whitaker. Both fighters were in attendance and I still hold to my conviction that it was a nice touch from Main Events promotions. Sorry if it as taken the wrong way.

    I must admit I did not see that one coming. I thought if Salido could bully Lomanchenko then surely Walters would have a good chance last Saturday. Oh well. Back to the cocktail lounge, I suppose.

    Time for my boy Francisco Vargas to get the call.

    Time for Carl Frampton or Lee Selby to have a go.
