    Don't think AJ can claim Ruiz landed "a punch from God" when he got knocked down 4 times.

    can’t really say “he is way better, I don’t deserve a rematch. Tune in.”

    It's boilerplate stuff after a KO, I just laughed at the phrasing given how many times he went on the canvas.

    He's definitely changed tune a bit since the fight. I think some of it is the fighter trying to convince themselves.

    One card tonight. Not great, but it’s something.

    ESPN, 10:00 pm ET, Emanuel Navarrete vs Francisco De Vaca, Jessie Magdaleno vs Rafael Rivera.
    Being honest, it’s another pretty underwhelming ESPN card in these early stages of Building The Brand. Navarrete is a top guy at 122, the WBO titleholder. De Vaca is the sort of challenger Top Rank has lined up recently against Tyson Fury and Oscar Valdez and others — he’s unbeaten, yes, but ranked No. 144 in the world by BoxRec and has nothing near a meaningful win. Magdaleno is a former titleholder at 122 now fighting at 126, while Rivera is an also-ran who’s lost three of five, dropping fights to Joseph Diaz Jr, Joet Gonzalez, and Leo Santa Cruz.

    Navarrete is coming in hot with back-to-back wins over Isaac Dogboe in December and May. De Vaca is a bit of an unknown, a 24-year-old fighting out of Phoenix who has never been near the world level.

    Magdaleno picked up a win over Rico Ramos in March and now looks to make it two straight against Rivera, who was predictably outclassed in a world title fight against Leo Santa Cruz on Feb. 16 before winning a tune-up bout in May.

    Had people last night and I had 2 TVs on the patio watching both UFC and Navarrate fight. We were talking about that. When one of your best fighers ever, Cormier, net worth is $5 million and the boss is $500 million. There is a major issue.
