Boxing writers and fans claimed it was not worthy of
being a main 
event. They were all wrong. Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero and Yoshihiro Kamagai put on
a blazing affair.

In the middle of the fight Kamagai got started and
the rumble truly began. There was no turning back.

Guerrero connected with many clean shots including
this right 
hook. Kamagai never went down.

Vasyl Lomachenko won the vacant WBO featherweight
title by majority 
decision against Gary Russell Jr. The
semi
main event was  a technical affair that the Ukrainian won despite having only three pro fight.

Early on it looked like "The Ghost" was going to
steamroll the Japanese prizefighter. Overhand
lefts were landing without fail.

Kamagai began finding spots for his own blows and instead of boxing Guerrero opted to slug it out. The
StubHub Center always seems to bring out the gladiator
in most 
fighters.

Fans watched the fight awestruck by the savagery and determination of both welterweights. By the end of the night many were calling it another candidate for Fight of
the Year.

Former champion Devon Alexander fought an interesting
match against Jesus Soto Karass. The St. Louis native tried for a knockout but discovered why Soto Karass is the designated gate keeper of the welterweight division.
He's tough.

Guerrero's deadly left uppercut soon became his most effective weapon. Kamagai took it every round.

It was Japanese Samurai versus Aztec warrior and
neither fighter was 
willing to change. It was toe-to-toe
war and 
damn the torpedoes.

The Ghost was declared the victor by unanimous
decision. 
But the violence endured by he and Kamagai
was visible in 
both after the fight.
