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

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.
