Random Musings From A Busy Fight Weekend
By William Trillo
From The United States to The United Kingdom, it was a big boxing weekend that left us with more than a few topics to discuss, both inside and outside the ring. In fact, there were so many trinkets I just don’t know where to begin. So, without further Doo Doo, here we go;

Before I could get to my media seat ringside at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles, photos on Twitter of Oscar De La Hoya posing with Terrance Crawford were making the rounds amongst my peers. Speculation and innuendo were all we had to go with, but everyone to a man knew…considering the state of the business of boxing and all the Horse Hockey that comes with it, this was gonna be good.

  Rocha KO’s Tough Ashie In Seventh  
By William Trillo
Photos: Marlene Marquez

Welterweight Alexis Rocha (22-1, 14 KO’s) found out that when a fighter travels halfway around the world to put on the gloves, he is going to give it his all when he steps into the squared circle. That’s exactly what the fighter from Ghana, George Ashie (33-6-1, 25 KO’s) did in front of a packed house of mostly Rocha fans. Coming in as a last-minute sub, no one really knew what to expect from the fighter from Africa. By the end of the night everyone, including Rocha, found out Ashie came here to die on his sword if he had to, and he darn near did. The Golden Boy promotred battle for Rocha’s WBO NABO Welterweight belt gave the fans in the YouTube Theater a night they won’t soon forget.
