No breakout stars in the vein of a Rebecca Sealfon, and nothing as perversely entertaining as the fainting kid last year. But this was the best competition I've seen in years. Samir Patel has "it" and is eligible for three more years. Bet the ranch on him to take it next year.
I'm not saying he's not fighting tough guys or dodging fights, but the cream of the crop isn't as creamy as it used to be. He's fighting the best he can find, but only a boxing diehard knows most of those names.
