Prediction

Miguel Baeza, from the tape I’ve watched, looks impressive. The thing is, he doesn’t have much footage available. Baeza did go from fighting an excellent prospect in Ramiz Brahimaj to now fighting Reyna. With all due respect, as much as Baeza is unknown, I’m not impressed with Reyna. Reyna has lost to Kevin Holland but also to competition with records of 2-3, 20-10, and a 16-10 (as that fight was later switched to a no contest). While Baeza hasn’t fought good competition yet, this is a winnable fight for him.

Next: Alton Cunningham vs. Tony Johnson

  1. Miggy about to take his head off. Dude was a beast wrestler in high school. Reyna can’t even make weight like a champ.
