Standout fights

Eduard Gutknecht SplitDraw8 Pablo Sosa

This was supposed to be a nice, easy comeback fight for Gutknecht, coming off of his somewhat surprising stoppage loss to Dmitry Sukhotsky back in November. But apparently Sosa, the Spaniard with the .500 record, didn't get the memo. This was a slugfest from the get-go, with Sosa walking through anything Gutknecht threw, and coming back with his own good work. Nothing would deter Sosa - he would get hit with a four punch combination, pound on his chest, and then push Gutknecht backwards and have his own success. This was a very tough fight to score, as each round was close, and reasonably could have gone either way. A very impressive performance from Sosa, who moves to 3-3-3, with 2 KO. Gutknecht, whose best performance was probably his competitive decision loss to Juergen Braehmer, moves to 25-3-1, 9 KO, and it looks like we've seen his best days.

Valentin Leon UD6 Jose Alfredo Rodriguez

This was just a solid six rounds of you hit me a few times and then I'll hit you a few times. Every round was close, every round really could have gone either way, and the judges ended up seeing the slugfest in favor of the journeyman Leon. He was cut badly by a headbutt in the fourth round, which cost Rodriguez a point, and was dropped multiple times by low blows, which were far more blatant than the headbutt, but did not cost him a point. I thought Rodriguez had done enough to edge it in the end, but he falls to 29-4, 18 KO. Leon improves to 37-28-3, 20 KO.

Omar Chavez UD10 Daniel Sandoval

Sometimes standout fights stand out for the wrong reason. And sometimes you get the best and the worst of boxing in the same fight. This is a pretty solid example of that. The fight itself was great. An all out war, the first half completely dominated by Sandoval, the second half largely dominated by Chavez. Sandoval had a point deducted in the fifth round for low blows, and after that, Chavez woke up. He dominated the sixth and seventh, and had Sandoval out on his feet for almost the entirety of the eighth. But somehow, unbelievably, Sandoval came back to dominate the ninth, and win the fight on my card. When the scores were read, however, it was clear that Sandoval never had a chance. The 'other' son of Julio Cesar, Chavez improves to 32-2-1, 22 KO, while Sandoval falls to 34-3, 30 KO.
