It wasn’t even close… The cream rises to the top…Peter Manfredo Jr. took apart the bigger but less skilled Joey Spina. The bout was stopped in the third round after a game but outclassed Spina got up from a knockdown but took a vicious right hand that prompted the towel to come in from his corner. A wise stoppage. Poor Joey was in way over his head.
With Joe Calzaghe winning tonight and also Mikkel Kessler’s impressive KO of Markus Beyer…Well a big opportunity is knocking. How good is Manfredo ? That remains to be seen but he sure is marketable. There is even talk of Manfredo – Roy Jones Jr. Hey, why not ? Manfredo is streaking and Jones is hanging on. It’s a fight that would draw a lot of fan interest. Hell, my cheap ass might even pay for that one.
