Here are two fights that I'm interested in right now. Golovkin vs Rubio and Donaire vs. Walters. I think this is what boxing needs to get back to, Guys fighting for their shot at the top. These so called "megafights" have been really disappointing for a while now. We need some fights where both guys come to fight and have nothing to lose.
On the undercard of Mayweather vs Maidana, the best fight of the night was between Texas's own James De La Rosa and Alfredo Angulo. De La Rosa looked sharp and strong but may need to work on his stamina some. He tended to look tired at time, but was able to put Angulo on the canvas once. I look forward to seeing more out of him in the future.
