Standups in boxing are crazy

After reading several articles about how unsafe the 10 count in this past weekend’s Nonito Donaire vs. Fernando Montiel fight was, I just had to see it for myself. And yeah, it’s pretty amazing that you can knock someone out on their ass like that and they have a chance to get up and keep on fighting. The fight got stopped immediately afterwards, but jeez. When a guy’s legs are breakdancing while he’s out on the canvas and then he FALLS ON HIS FACE trying to get back up, I’m pretty sure he’s done.

On a side-note related to boxing, check out some of this boxing betting at betus: our good friend James Toney is back in action and based on the odds, I think he’s in a squash match … he’s a -2500 favorite against +900 Damon Reed. The other major boxing match with odds: Miguel Cotto (-1200) vs Ricardo Mayorga (+650). That one is interesting because Mayorga is one of the guys (alongside Fernando Vargas) that Nick Diaz wants to box.
