Boxing Challenge-PBC puts you to sleep

The Boxing Challenge started off with two fights from the PBC on Spike before a weekend that sees HBO and Showtime each offer bouts.

The PBC was about as expected as the chalk had both bouts being predictable endings.
The main event saw Erislandy Lara defend his WBC Jr.Middleweight title with a unanimous decision over Delvin Rodriguez.
Lara won in his typical less than pleasing style,although he did drop the limited Rodriguez once,but didn't press his advantage and Rodriguez lasted the distance.
Artur Beterbiev went longer than four rounds for the first time,but still won every round in a seventh round knockout of Alexander Johnson.
Both bouts were simply world class fighters against b level fighters and proved nothing.

Both R.L.Malpica picked Lara by unanimous decision and Beterbiev by knockout,so both of us earned four points on the evening.
I currently lead the challenge 67-66...
