Tonight's undercard was a travesty

The main event is still to come, but we're going to have more time to kill, and that's after a thirty-minute break between the second and third fights.

In the first televised bout, Daniel Jacobs stopped Victor Lares in the second round. Totally expected.

The second fight was a joke, as Sergio Medina, an unjustly world-ranked fighter, got a shot at Juan Manuel Lopez's WBO junior featherweight title. Lopez winning early would not be a problem, but the fact that Medina was clearly out of shape and uninterested in fighting is a problem. This is what they offered us for 50 dollars. Medina put on 16 pounds overnight, and went down three times as Lopez landed nine punches. Medina was 1-for-6 on the night. A joke.

And a half hour of interviews and an ignored fight in the background, Victor Ortiz got rid of washed-up Jeff Resto early in the second round after three knockdowns total.

This was atrocious, and HBO, Golden Boy and Top Rank should be embarrassed that they demanded $54.99 from the boxing public for this card. Three utter mismatch showcase fights that wasted the time and showed us nothing about the winning fighters except that they were in against illegitimate competition.

And we've got 40 minutes until we see the main event. 40 minutes of B.S. interviews, boring jabbering between Lampley, Steward and Larry Merchant.

Oh hell, at least we're getting Larry talking to Angelo Dundee.
