Munguia v.sDerevyanchenko candidate to be fight of the year.

Tonight former superwelterweight WBO world champ Jaime Munguia took on a real test in fighting the crafty Sergey Derevyanchenko in the 168lbs división. Munguia looked huge after rehydration but it didnt matter to Derevyanchenko who put on quiet a war. The whole fight was very even what set Munguia apart was when he knocked down Derevyanchenko with a body shot to the liver in the 12th and final round to secure a win. If he wouldnt of knocked down Derevyanchenko he would of lost in the scorecards. Judges had it (114-113 Barragan) (115-112 Moret) (114-113 Villareal). It would of been a split decision to Derevyanchenko or even a draw . It was a great fight where nobody deserved to loose but its boxing and we need to have a winner. Munguia barely passed this very complicated test.
