While UFC 129 did the big business north of the U.S. border, boxing’s biggest Saturday night fights were happening in Mexico and Argentina. A night of “little guy” fights saw three alphabet belts at 108 pounds change hands in rematches.
In Argentina, Ulises Solis got revenge for a terrible decision in December against Luis Alberto Lazarte, sneaking out a split decision win on scores of 116-111, 115-112 and 113-114 in an even worse fight than the two put forth the first time around. Solis (33-2-3, 21 KO) fought too tentatively overall, but going at the man known as “El Mosquito” isn’t easy. Lazarte (48-10-2, 18 KO) mostly tried to flee from contact, though his occasional bull-rushes give the impression of being somewhat offensively active. His real offensive strength is his ability to foul his opponents, and he tried plenty of that again. If they have a third fight, people should stay away. Lazarte is awful to watch fight.
