Makes sense because nobody would buy this if it were headlining a pay-per-view. But they can draw viewers in with Rampage and they may stick around just because it's a title fight.

This could be one of the worst title fights in history - they might both be too quick to even land anything all night.

That kid just keeps getting better and better and is unusually strong compared to most Asian fighters. Saying those 115lbs couldn't use speed, technique and pace to do something similar to what Mouse did at BW is crazy as well. The top level 115lbs guys are great fighters and often times fight 125ers. These guys are better then most guys sporting those magic 3 letters on their gloves.
Aljamain Sterling.

It's not even the speed, it is just they are both spurt fighters.



Boxing had the same problem with its 120-130lbers until the golden age of those divisions came with Pacquiao, Morales and MAB.

Pretty much, i over simplified it - 2 guys who fight in bursts with great footwork and reactions is a recipe for disaster. Best thing to hope for is one of them gets clipped early and it ends there, with Dodson being more likely to be doing the clipping.

More Mexicans would be a good thing, i don't think people would of even cared about Pacquaio in them early days without them...he would of been another ignored featherweight. Need some people who will use there speed and size to stand in the pocket and do damage.
