    Thanks for the video. That is what I call intense. What a knockout. The guy was getting hit so many times he couldn't
    even fall down. I love it. This kid is a warrior! Anxious to watch him fight again as he moves up the rankings.

    "Kavaliauskas", may mean infantryman. Has a fighting family name. Impressive win seeing as his opponent came fight -all dressed up anyway.

    Jewish supremacist Bob Arum usually keeps his best white boxers off TV, but we'll likely be able to watch Kavaliauskas for free on Saturday on Top Rank's HD undercard stream.

    Kavaliauskas defeated Jeremy Bryan last night by KO 3.

    Sadly, there's no TV or video of the fight.

    Kavaliauskas has been under-paid and badly promoted by Bob Arum.

    Hopefully he'll win, but the referee and judges will very likely favor Crawford.

    Arum tends to play favorites with fighters who can make him a boatload of cash. If you aren't a moneymaker and aren't a cheap 4 to 6 round prospect he has in the past let you rot on the bench.

    He infamously let Andy Ruiz walk which looked like the biggest mistake since the Lenape sold Manhattan for 20 dollars worth of beads(until Saturday afternoon). Arum stated that Ruiz was unmarketable because of his portly build and negotiated a buyout with the Ruiz camp.

    PS, here's the face off, Mean Machine looks tanked out for a welterweight....https://www.espn.com/boxing/

    Watching the undercard. A rising star no doubt is Mick Conlan. Great quickness, some pop and fundamentals. His team is moving him smart. He should get the UD over the tough Russian fighter. Who they said stole the Olympic medal from Conlan.

    Next up Latin sensation Lopez against tough Ghanan Commey. The winner gets Loma.

    Looks like Lopez is cashing the checks of his father. Spectacular KO of Commey. Lopez's father likes to talk trash for his son. He said his Lopez would win a title in his 15th fight. Check. Father continued and said his son would beat Loma in his 16th. To be determined. It will be a dangerous fight for Loma, but one I believe he can win.

    Lopez is athletic and fast but has no experience in a tough fight that isn't going his way, generally green guys lose them.
    Historically guys have been ruined by rushing them into fights against pound per pound fighters. I recall Fernando Vargas losing badly late against Trinidad and never being the same fighter. Also Ray Mancini might have had his career shortened by his beating at the hands of Arguello.

    You can dare to be great but Loma isn't on the level of even a Crawford who looked very vulnerable tonight, it should be fun in 5 months.

    I remember watching the Vargas and Mancini fights live. I agree. they were not ready for the likes of Tito or Arguello when they fought. Lopez is, however, daring to be great at a young age of 22. I do not believe he is ready for the likes of Loma right now. Regarding Crawford, he is good. But he will need to beat the likes of Spence, Pacman, Porter or Garcia to be considered great.
