We'll have TWO live threads tonight, the first for the undercard and the second for the main event. We're doing this because in the past on big shows, we've piled up 1000+ comments and things started getting a little slow for some people at around 6-700. I don't know if we'll really need it tonight, but for the major fights like this, this is how we'll be doing it from now on.
This post, obviously, is for the undercard. You can talk about the Pac-Clottey fight in here, but when the main event gets set to start, we'll switch over to the main event's thread.
The order of the fights will be: Castillo-Gomez, Duddy-Medina, and then the chief support, Soto-Diaz for the vacant WBC lightweight title.
