Friday Night Fights Results (July 25, 2014): Garcia beats Prescott, Truax and Lee win on undercard

New, 2 comments

Roberto Garcia, Caleb Truax, and Mike Lee all won on tonight's edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights from Chicago.

Roberto Garcia UD-10 Breidis Prescott

Scores were 96-92, 96-93, and 95-94 for Garcia, debatable at best, from what I could tell. I didn't score the fight proper because I was channel hopping, but I did give Prescott the first three rounds before I sort of zoned out a bit. I mean, maybe I'm wrong, but probably not. I'm probably not wrong. It's not feasible. Apparently, 34-year-old Garcia (36-3, 23 KO) has some kind of a bandwagon? He's not that good of a fighter, and he's past his physical prime anyway, most likely, and it's not like he's out there cuttin' dudes down like when Sergio Martinez got his HBO shots, but what do I know? Prescott falls to 27-6 (20 KO), and will keep on at this level for a while longer.

Caleb Truax UD-10 Derek Ennis

Truax goes to 24-1-2 (14 KO) with a relatively easy win over Ennis (24-5-1, 13 KO), taking scores of 97-93, 97-93, and 99-90. Truax pretty well dominated the fight without doing anything eye-catching or "special," just boxing his way to victory against Ennis, whose effort could be described as passive or casual, which is nothing new for Ennis, who has value as a prospect checker and the like, but is a terrible TV fighter. Truax, 30, might try to angle for a middleweight title shot sometime in the near future. Why not? There are worse world title challengers all over boxing, all the time.

Mike Lee MD-6 Paul Gonsalves

The Notre Dame Subway farce continues on, as Lee improves to 13-0 (7 KO) with his usual unimpressive performance in victory, this time beating a 32-year-old club fighter from Massachusetts. Gonsalves was just about as good as Lee, which tells you about all you need to know about Mike Lee's skills. He's with a new trainer in former heavyweight champ Chris Byrd, but nothing was really different. Same old mediocre, non-prospect Mike Lee.
