Bad Left Hook Fight Night: Klitschko-Gomez and March Badness

Pre-fight notes:

  • Klitschko-Gomez starts at 6pm ET on ESPN Classic. March Badness starts at 9pm on PPV.
  • I listed all of Sheika's defeats because I couldn't pick the three most notable, and also to further say, "Hey, this guy's never beaten anyone, and has lost to every good fighter he ever faced besides a majority decision against Glen Johnson." He also lost to Tony Booth, who was 28-44-7 going into the fight.
  • Herrera's other two losses were also stoppages. So he's 16-5 with 16 wins by knockout and five losses by knockout. He's like Alejandro Berrio II.
