I came so close on the J'Leon Love prediction. Marco Antonio Periban didn't utilize his size advantage properly and held back on his superior body attack while tempting to fight at a distance as if to pick Love out. Love was more precise and that led to his success. The fight was close and the decision was fair. Love squeezed through to win the fight.

If it was reversed and Love had Periban on the ropes hurt like that would the ref of stopped it? I would bet yes.

I thought Nady was jumping in to stop the fight in the 5th round when Love was against the ropes taking a pounding and latched onto Periban. Nady stepped in, looked to be like he was going to waive it off as he was breaking them and then stepped away to let the fighters continue. All I can think of he is looked closely at Love's eyesa s he was breaking them and made a split second determination to give him one more chance.

Love deserves a ton of credit for not only the heart he showed in this fight but to come back from that pounding to more or less dominate the second half of the fight. The jury is still out on him as far as how good he will be but one thing that cannot be questioned is his heart and courage inside the ring. He showed that he has tons of both on Saturday night.

Nady did not stop it– IMHO — because he saw Love take a knee when Trainer E Mustafa Muhammad said to do so from the corner. Now if Love would had stayed up and taken another shot, that would've been all she rides. Holla!
