  1. Mikhalkin is a feather fisted bum. 9 KO's in 28 fights.. Absolutely appalling that HBO took this fight, and made it the MAIN EVENT. It should have been a pre-lim fight.. u know, the one that starts at 6:00 PM, the fight thats not televised LOL .. Now Bivol vs Barrera, thats a different story!!
