Alvarez deserves respect for victory

After 10 rounds, it's hard to really answer many of those questions. Mares won the fight, out-landing Jonathan Oquendo in total punches 163 to 84 according to ringside stats. He looked pretty flat in doing so, however, nothing like the Mares who ran through Daniel Ponce De Leon 14 months ago in Las Vegas.

5. But verdict is in on Juan Manuel Lopez ...

And that verdict is: Probably time to retire. Lopez, 31, has been knocked out four times in less than four years. The once promising Puerto Rican never got it together after two knockout losses to Orlando Salido in 2011 and 2012. He looked downright awful against Francisco Vargas on Saturday, displaying plenty of courage but little skill and even less chin. Who would have won between he and Yuriorkis Gamboa "back in the day" will forever remain bar stool banter.
