Joel Diaz vs. Guy Robb: Bomb after Bomb after Bomb
So far, this month in boxing has been boring. That is, until tonight. On the undercard of Rigondeaux-Ramos, Showtime decided to book some last minute replacements.
These replacements, as it turns out, did their all to make an impression.
Both charged out during the first round throwing angry blows at each other. It was only a matter of time before someone was going to get knocked down. It was Diaz who fell first in the 2nd round.
In the 3rd round, it was Robb's turn to get knocked down — which happened twice. At this point, I thought this fight was going to be all Diaz. I was wrong.
Springing like a panther during the 4th round, Robb planted bomb after bomb after bomb upon Diaz. He hit the body, the head — everywhere he could find spare flesh.
From this point onwards, it was a war of attrition to see who would get stopped. Indeed, the fight did get stopped, but before it did, the toe to toe battle continued until the bitter end.
