The rise of lower weight superstars

The world has been talking about Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. – It has been a super fight, however it didn’t live up to the hype that it was given.  Most boxing experts didn’t expect a brawl – or a fight where both fighters came toe-to-toe.  It was exciting to me, however most do not know that the fighters in the lower weight divisions have just as much talent, as the fighters at higher weights do. The lower weight boxers, do not get the recognition that they deserve.

This week’s highlights: Randy Caballero vs Stuart Hall

British armchair boxing fans got a mixed bag this weekend but the undoubted highlight was the outstanding fight in Monte Carlo, between Nicaraguan-American Randy Caballero and Darlington’s own Stuart Hall, for one of the main alphabet belts at bantamweight.  On paper beforehand, this always looked like the fight of the weekend, and so it proved.  Both boxers are ranked high in the bantamweight division and although Caballero was quite a hot favourite to win, it was felt that the experience and sheer size of Hall might be enough to counteract his opponent’s advantages in youth and skill. 

Unfortunately for Stuey, he came up short, with the second round knockdown he suffered putting him at a deficit on the cards which he could never claw back.  Both fought tooth and nail through to the final bell and it was a truly superb contest.  Not only that but two of the judges were absolutely spot on with their scores of 116-111 for Caballero.  This fight showed everything that is good about boxing and, in fact, the whole card was excellent with another major world title fight and also a crossroads match between two hot prospects at light-heavyweight featuring on what proved to be easily the best card of the weekend.  Credit to Rodney Berman and his Golden Gloves outfit for continually putting on these excellent shows.
