The Good

A huge congratulations to Ray Beltran for going to Reno, Nevada to become “The Biggest Little Fighter In The World”. His gutty performance over Paulus Moses earned him the WBO Lightweight title. The bloody war gave Beltran his well deserved championship. This is one of the good guys in the sport who has always let his fists do the talking for him in the ring.

The Bad

As much as I respect both Devon Alexander and Victor Ortiz, and that is through both the thick and thin of their illustrious careers, it’s hard to see how this fight was deemed a draw. All credit to both men, but seriously, Alexander should have been given the nod in this slugfest.

The Ugly

There should be zero credit given to Danny Garcia for knocking out the aged and blown up lightweight Brandon Rios. Sorry but this is just another case of Garcia beating up on another guy out of his weightclass, (see Rod Salka). With the victory Garcia has made himself about as relevant as an ipod.

Bully For Billy

Yes, it’s that time of the year when I venture into the world of Professional Bull Riding. Better known to the in crowd as The PBR.

This year in Anaheim California the cowboys took center stage for the “Unleash The Beast” show. As always it was a night of thrills and spills for the crowd of over 14,000 fans.

In the last ride of the night and event Cody Nance rode his way to the top for his first PBR victory since 2014.

Nance went 3-for-3 over the two days and clinched the victory with an 88.75-point ride on 2017 World Champion Bucking Bull Sweet Pro’s Bruiser on the final out of the night to win the championship round.

“You know that bull is going to challenge you,” said Nance. “You ride him like any other bull, jump for jump. I tried hard, maintained my focus, and it worked out.”

From top to bottom, from Cowboys to bulls as well as the talented Bull fighters the night was a real crowd pleaser that had the Honda Center rocking.

The heart and courage of the men riding the bulls is without compare and is a must see for anyone looking for a never say die evening of one of the most rugged sports on the planet.
