Bottom Dogs: Josesito Lopez TKO 9 Victor Ortiz, Lucas Matthysse TKO 5 Humberto Soto

The finish–unexpected if not altogether shocking, given the mercurial career of the unpredictable Ortiz–came at the end of nine punishing rounds, when a broken jaw forced the 25-year-old to call it a night. Ortiz, who seemed to take his previous defeat, a bizarre knockout at the hands of Floyd Mayweather, with a mere shrug and a grin, clearly felt the emotional sting this time. Perhaps it was the big payday slipping from his grasp, or maybe, finally, he realized that life in the ring would remain forever unforgiving. From The Cruelest Sport

Alexander likely to be stripped of IBF title


The IBF has called for a purse bid between Devon Alexander and Kaizer Mabuza, which all but guarantees that no more than two belts will be unified in a bout between Alexander and Timothy Bradley. Of course, the fact they are likely to fight twice means one or both of them will probably get stripped of their belts, making the "unification" even more meaningless. Since Victor Ortiz is the next highest ranked fighter in the IBF's standings, expect to see a fight between Mabuza and Ortiz for the soon-to-be vacant title.

Aftermath: A Little Perspective on Khan-Malignaggi & Other Weekend Results

By Carlos Acevedo of The Cruelest Sport. Amir Khan stopped Paulie Malignaggi in 11 rounds before a lively crowd at The Theater in Madison Square Garden and already the peanut gallery is choking on its shells. Khan has been called, presumably without tongue in cheek, "a dominating 140-pounder" by RingTV.com. Sigh. Perspective is as lacking in boxing as honor is among thieves, but it is that much to expect a little rational discussion once in a while? Khan is a good fighter. But Malignaggi was, after all, as high as 4 ½ to 1 against on some books, and has scored only five knockouts in his entire career. The Cruelest Sport did not even bother to post a preview for this fight because, you know, 4 ½ to 1 fights are generally not meant to be competitive and why waste time pretending a lame donkey is Seabiscuit?
