We now live in a world where Tim Bradley has scored a legitimate stoppage in the recent past. And Brandon Rios is no longer an active fighter anymore. For now, anyway. Times, they are a ch-.... Things are weird, man.
On HBO last weekend, Bradley dominated and halted Rios and made it look somewhat easy. Many expected Bradley to win, but by knockout? Rios retired immediately after the fight, citing inability to absorb punishment like before, and long layoffs. Like we said, things are weird.
In the opening bout, Vasyl Lomachenko toyed with Romulo Koasicha for a number of rounds before ending the fight in the 10th. Opinions are split between being impressed and being annoyed, and both are at least somewhat understandable.
Most of the rest of the year is filled with solid boxing, though the next week is slow-ish. Doesn't matter. James Foley of Bad Left Hook and Patrick Connor of The Fight City will go over it all, making juvenile jokes along the way.
