  • I watched the Hennessey Promotions card and it was pretty enjoyable. It was a rough night for the promoter's stable, but I continue to be impressed by Stephen McKenna. It was rather limited opposition, but he can only work with what he's given.

    SPOILERS (in case anyone cares)

    My favorite fight of the night was Michael Hennessy Jr vs Jamie Stewart. Hennessy Jr is the son of the promoter and Stewart is a relatively new pro that has turned his life around after a few prison stints. Hennessy fought a relatively lazy fight whereas Stewart seeming pushed the action. The fight was decided by the referee and you could tell Hennessy expected to win. Stewart won. It's a relatively big win for him since he was probably brought in to lose, so I'm happy for him. I've never been impressed by Hennessy Jr, but hopefully he learns something from this and adjusts accordingly. I honestly don't expect him to go far.

      • I don't know if you're all watching the Buatsi card, but I thought the scoring for the Hedges-Ardon fight was crazy. How did you all score it?

          Ian John Lewis obviously up for a bribe- awful call Hedges has a lot to learn and needs a proper trainer

            Ardon definitely made him look very average and Hedges clearly has a lot to learn. Giving him a gift decision doesn't teach him anything. It's probably a good thing that his original opponent fell through; I have a feeling Julio Cesar would have wrecked his shit based on that performance. Also, ref scoring is the worst since it seems to enable crap like this.

            • The Joe Laws-Rylan Charlton bout was one of the most satisfying bouts I've seen in some time.

              • Agree Kite - conversely - Ritson-Vazquez was an utter judging bribery scandal disgrace - MeetTheKinahans strike again. Must have been a massive betting scam or just a downright cheating operation to get Ritson back into the frame.

                I watched it 2x to make sure I hadn't made a mistake and scored 1 round to Ritson on both occasions.

                  Yeah, I really don't know how anyone could have up come up with those scorecards without some kind of bribe. The Leach-Ashfaq fight made me happy. Very competitive with the right outcome.
