The above representation (via) of how an average 13-year-old girl feels about school every day is exactly how we all feel about cards featuring mismatches, actually.
As admirable as matching Danny Garcia against Rod Salka would have been — had it actually been made for admirable, “let’s give this guy a chance” reasons — it simply wasn’t a good idea, ever. There was only one match up of serious quality this last weekend, and U.S. television executives never would have been able to sit through the word “strawweight” in the proposal process, much less actually aired it. In other words, 105 lb. stingers Francisco Rodriguez vs. Katsunari Takayama ensured that the weekend wasn’t a total loss.
This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, Bad Left Hook’s James Foley and Patrick Connor of TQBR welcome back Brian Campbell of ESPN to recap Garcia vs. Salka, Lamont Peterson vs. Edgar Santana and Danny Jacobs vs. Jarrod Fletcher, and preview Shawn Porter vs. Kell Brook.
