This weekend boxing continued its fantastic year with a slugfest between one of my personal favorite boxers in Joel Casamayor and Australian brawler Michael Katisidis.
I'll let my boy Scott from BadLeftHook explain what was up:
It was a hell of a fight, mean-spirited and nasty all the way, and I feel bad for anyone that passed on it.
I strongly suggest you catch a replay on HBO this week, but if you can't here is the fight in convenient 9 minute form:
Casamayor has always been a guy who takes more punches than he should and throws reckless bombs, and that vulnerability is part of what has always made me a fan. Unfortunately Joel also has nights where he just doesn't really seem to show up to fight...luckily for all boxing fans this wasn't one of those times.
