During Boxing After Dark @ 10:45 pm ET/PT, also featuring Jermain Taylor vs. William Joppy. I don't think Joppy has any chance to beat Taylor, unless they let him use the big fork stuck in his back as a weapon.

Huh... well, watching Morales / Barrera again was a treat, but I was left pretty flat watching Taylor's win over Joppy.

Maybe it was because it was following an all-time great fight, and had no chance in hell of even coming close to its intensity...

Maybe Joppy just wasn't up to the challenge anymore?

I don't know. What I do know, is I felt that while Taylor was dominant, he was boring, and I'm not particularly interested in him as an up-and-coming challenger at middleweight. Great fighters find ways to make even mediocre fights interesting to watch.

Ah well -- I won't write him off yet, but if that fight was any indication *shrugs* I won't exactly be going out of my way to catch one of his matches.
