A lot went down this weekend in boxing, and you probably missed at least some of it. So here’s a quick-and-dirty recap of the fights we saw the past couple of days.

ESPN PPV, New York, NY (Saturday)

FOX, Carson, CA (Saturday)

  • Competing with a PPV, even one as heavily-criticized as Crawford-Khan, is not easy, but PBC was back on FOX on Saturday with its own welterweight main event, Danny Garcia vs Adrian Granados. Granados had never been stopped, but Garcia put it on him, dropping Granados repeatedly before the fight was stopped in the seventh round.
  • Heavyweight Andy Ruiz Jr had spent his entire career with Top Rank, but made his PBC debut a good one, forcing Alexander Dimitrenko to quit after five rounds.
  • Brandon Figueroa stayed unbeaten and grabbed the WBA interim title at 122 pounds, with Yonfrez Parejo quitting after eight rounds.
  • FS1 ran fights after the FOX card, but admittedly, we missed them. Well, I had the TV on still, so I glanced over here and there to see the crowd dwindle down to dozens by the end, but I was focused on the pay-per-view show. Jeison Rosario beat Jorge Cota by 10-round split decision; Alfredo Angulo knocked out Evert Bravo in the second round; Karlos Balderas knocked out Luis May in the fourth; and Omar Juarez won a four-round decision over Dwayne Bonds.
  • Totally off of television, John Riel Casimero knocked out Ricardo Espinoza to win the interim WBO bantamweight title. Espinoza was down in the sixth and 12th rounds, and was stopped standing. Scores at the time of stoppage were 105-103 Casimero, 105-103 Espinoza, and 104-104. Sounds like maybe it should have been televised.
