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.
Well, well, well. For all the build up and the mind games and the incessant shit talking, Fury backed up everything he said. Wlad looked every bit of 39 years old. What's next for the new champ? A rematch with Klitschko? A unification fight with Wilder?...
